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: (Shiny Material, Satine is a variant of the name Satin.)

Origin: (English, French)

Pronunciation: (SA-teen, SAT-in, SAETIYN)

Gender: Female

This was the name of the character in the Moulin Rouge movie, played by actress Nicole Kidman. I think it’s an interesting name. The look and meanings do impart a seductive vibe. I can’t say much about the name as I am a bit on the fence between love and hate with this name. It interesting as I said but I am not sure it would be a name I would ever use for any of my characters. When I see this name I think Satin sheets and Moulin Rouge so I would be stuck thinking that every time I see this name so it’s good and bad in that way. It really depends on how the author intends to take their character if they use this name.
