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: (Father of Triplet Sons, Woman of Troy)

Origin: (Slavic)

Pronunciation: (Troy-ann, Troy-in, troy-en, trow-en)

Gender: Male, Possibly Uni-Sex

I saw this as the name of one of the actresses on the TV series Pretty Little Liars. Though I’ve never seen the show nor do I know anything about the actress I do like her name. The primary meaning seems very masculine obviously but I read that the second meaning can be used as well and that is feminine now so I put this as a possible uni-sex name. I like the over all look of this name and it has a look of several names in one giving it a unique yet attractive look.

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.
