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: (Child of Truth, Truth, Grateful, and a noted bearer is Princess Mako of Akishino (眞子内親王, b.1991), the elder
daughter of Fumihito, Prince Akishino and Kiko, Princess Akishino, and a
member of the Japanese Imperial Family. She is the first-born granddaughter of the reigning Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko.)

Origin: (Japanese)

Pronunciation: (MAH-koh, MAA-Kow)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I saw this on a show a few months ago but the way they were pronouncing it and the way I began to pronounce it is apparently really wrong. They pronounced it may-kow not like it is MAH-koh or MAA-kow. I love the meaning of Japanese names as they are so beautiful and this is no different. It’s short and beautiful and I just love it a lot and would love to see it used more often in literature.

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.
