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: ("Pleasantness, Sweetness, My Delight" and while started as the male version of the female No'omi — (English: "Naomi" or "Noemi") today it is a very common Hebrew name for both males and females alike.)

Origin: (Hebrew)

Pronunciation: (Noe-ahm, NOHM, NOH-əm, NOW-aeM)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I think I saw this as a wrestlers ring name some time ago but I can’t remember but wherever I saw it I instantly liked it. The look is unique and definitely rare and the meanings are very lovely but it has a strong look about it as well. I wouldn’t have thought it were a Hebrew name when I saw it as it looks to me as more of an Irish, Scottish or Welsh name to me. But all in all I like the look and meanings a lot and it is short and has different variant pronunciations to choose from which may help readers and authors alike.

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.
