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: (Winner, Winning, Giant, Rules the Home, House Owner, Lord of the Manor, in some cases it seems to be an Old Italian form of Heinz (diminutive of Henry), though in other cases it could be a variant of the Germanic name Anzo. In modern times it is also used as a short form of names ending in Enzo, such as Vincenzo or Lorenzo.)

Origin: (Italian, Latin, French, Germanic)

Pronunciation: (EHNZow, EHN-zoh)

Gender: Male

I love to watch WWE wrestling and one of the new tag teams is Enzo Amore and Big Cass. After hearing the name Enzo I came to like it and the last name Amore *see on list of posts* of course it’s a ring name not his real name but each part was interesting to me. The meanings of Enzo are pretty strong and great, I particularly like the Lord of the Manor one. I do think it is a great nickname option for names with Enzo in it like, Vincenzo and Lorenzo. However I think it can also stand on its own as its own name.

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.
