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: (Love, Amore is an alternate form of Amor (French) with the suffix -e. From a short form of a compound name formed with this element, as for example Bonamore, Finamore, nickname for a philanderer, from Amore ‘Love’.)

Origin: (French, Spanish)

Pronunciation: (Ah-more-ay, A-MORE-RAY)

Gender: Male, Possibly Uni-Sex

I love to watch WWE wrestling and one of the new tag teams is Enzo Amore and Big Cass. After hearing the name Enzo *see on list of posts* I came to like it and the last name Amore, of course it’s a ring name not his real name but each part was interesting to me. Using Amore as a first name would be interesting but I would hope an author would stick to it as a middle or last name instead. The meaning is great of course, except the nickname for philander part, and the pronunciation is easy enough. This would be good if used in some way for a character who thinks he’s a Casanova with the ladies.

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.
