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: (Chastity, Modesty, Virtuous, Pious, God Fearing, Devoted to God, Darkness, Gloomy)

Origin: (Hebrew, Muslim, Islamic, Arabic)

Pronunciation: (EH-Faa)

Gender: Female

I was looking for names that mean darkness and saw this one but I went a different way entirely with the name however I liked Efah so I decided to add it to my blog list. The name looks and sounds a bit like Effie to me which isn’t a bad thing as I like and have used the name Effie before but as a nickname with the full name Euphemia *see on list of posts*.

I like the meanings but the last two meanings of Darkness and Gloomy seems completely different then the previous more light and airy glorious meanings. I think I prefer the meanings of Chastity, Modesty, Virtuous, Pious, God Fearing and Devoted to God which are all very beautiful meanings for a very interesting pretty name. The meanings relating to Virtue would fit well in my current novel in progress as Virtues are very important to that society.

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.
