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.

Levada / Lavada

Meaning: (Levada is an irrigation channel or aqueduct specific to the Portuguese island of Madeira.)

Origin: (Portuguese, English (Rare))

Pronunciation: (leh-VAY'-duh, leh-vah-duh)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I was watching a TV show about islands of the world that are improving the world with green technologies and one of the islands I saw on the one show was about the Portuguese island of Madeira *see on list of posts*. On the island they have a series of irrigation canals called a Levada. I think they are not only ingenious but very pretty and seem to enhance the islands unique flare. As a name I think it would be very cool if used in reference to these canals or maybe the characters parents might have a connection to the islands and the Levada irrigation canals. It’s a unique pretty name!
