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: (God Shall Redeem, Calm, Single, My Father Rejoices, Joy of My Father, Variant of Gal which means Wave.)

Origin: (Hebrew, Old Greek, Old Norse)

Pronunciation: (GAHL-yah, GAH-lee-ah, gah-lyah, Gaa-LIY-aa, GAA-LYaa)

Gender: Female

I totally forget where I saw this name but I really liked it when I saw it. The meanings are really great and it’s a beautiful name that seems very ancient but also a bit of out of this world. The look is simple and is seemingly easily pronounceable. It’s just lovely and elegant and seems a very ancient Lady or Princesses name. I think it would look awesome if paired with an ancient name like Aristides *see on list of posts*! Like Galia Aristides!

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.
