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: (Little Bird, Bright Maiden, Full of Praise and Glory, name of a character in the 1955, MGM released 'The Glass Slipper,' their musical take on the famous Cinderella story.)

Origin: (Greek, English, Germanic, Pop Culture)

Pronunciation: (B-ERDIYNAH)

Gender: Female

I was watching the movie ‘The Glass Slipper’ a few months back, I’ve seen it a few times and love it each and every time as I love movies with actress Leslie Caron in them. She plays the Cinderella character, BTW. This I think I remember was the name of one of the evil step-sisters. I do really love the name. I love the nickname options of Birdie or even Bridie *see on list of posts*. So if Birdie is chosen as the nickname I think it would be great when used with the full name Birdina rather than the name it’s usually a nickname for which is Bernice. The meanings are great and the whole name itself is fresh and rare to me which I love as well.

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.
