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.

I used to watch a show many years ago when I was teenager that was called The Tribe, which was about teenagers in a post-apocalyptic world where adults were killed by a virus which left kids alone to band together in tribes. One of the characters names was Java; her sisters were Siva and Ebony. So I’ve had this name on my list for a while but I had a hard time finding a meaning. The meanings are decent, most people would think of this name as a nickname for coffee or the computer program though.

  1. I've never come across many people that watched The Tribe. I loved it as a teenager. Java wasn't the nicest of characters neither was Ebony but Siva was the sweetest.


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.
