Character Naming

As an Author naming your Character is an important step right after coming up with the plot. I am here to help you choose the right character name for you and your story.

Make sure your character name is Genre Appropriate. Make sure if it's a Historical Fiction novel or takes place in a real time period that the name was used then. Or if it's a fictionalized place then you can be as creative as you wish.

Just have fun with naming your character. It is after all your story.

Meaning: (Wise, Intelligent, Logical)

Origin: (Arabic, English)

Pronunciation: (AHKIHLiyAH)

Gender: Female

I was watching a car commercial and I can swear they called a wolf in the commercial Akilia and I was like that is gorgeous and very much reminded me of one of my writer friends race of people in one of her stories. The meanings are wonderful and seeing the meanings and name it does seem old and wise. I can see a scholarly woman presiding over a large university on another planet for this name does seem other worldly to me.

Though if used on earth it seems old like early human history kind of or maybe even in the future it the people had gone backwards and been a tad bit more primitive. Though human history teaches us even the societies that had not even a speck of what we have were far from primitive, they were ingenious and did things with little and I am convinced that we couldn’t even do half of what they did with all the technology we have.

I try to have the most accurate Meanings, Origin and Pronunciations for the names on this blog. It is best though to do research into the names you decide to use for your characters as there can be errors on my blog. Or meanings, origins, and pronunciations I have not seen thus not been able to add to this blog.

Try some of the leading Baby Name Sites and Baby Name or Character Naming books as well.
