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: (A Dark Beauty, Dark Haired Nurse, Dark One of the Waterfall)

Origin: (Irish, Gaelic)

Pronunciation: (Du-ve-ssa, DIV-yah-sa, DIV-ə-sə)

Gender: Female

So I was looking for a name for a Beastly Beauty in one of my soon to be written retellings of a fairy-tale, minus the magic elements. The retelling will be a Beauty and the Beast retelling with a few changes and surprises. So Duvessa is one of the main characters names and I love it a lot but I’m not surprised as I love a lot of Irish names but unlike most harder to pronounce Irish names this one is actually easy enough to pronounce.

The meanings are very beautiful but I think Dark One of the Waterfall was one I couldn’t quite validate as to if it really was a meaning or not but I thought it was so beautiful I just had to add it. Either way these meanings make me see a very dark vixen type character with flowering dark hair, dark eyes and figure to die for, hopefully not literally, lol!

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.
