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: (Army Man, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese form of Herman.)

Origin: (German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese)

Pronunciation: (ahr-MAHN-do (Spanish, Italian), aaR-MAAN-Dow (Italian, Spanish))

Gender: Male

I have realized I haven’t really put a lot of Spanish names on here or at least not very many for males so I was listening to a music channel on my TV the other day and I was listening to a song and just like Enrique *see on list of posts* I saw the artist known as Pitbulls real first name is Armando. So I added Armando to my list as it is Spanish but also has other origins as well and the name is strong and brave as the meaning showcases. I would love to see this name used more often in literature as I do like the over all look and sound of the name. It’s strong and masculine and attractive but also respectable and regal in a way.

If you are looking for another variant of Herman which often feels old which it is you could go with Armin *see on list of posts*, its still has an old history of use as well but is unique.

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.

The baby name sites below are where I collect many of the Names, Origins, and Pronunciations I use on this blog.
