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: (Seashore, Lull, Sand, Messenger, Envoy)

Origin: (Japanese)

Pronunciation: (NAA-JHiy-Saa, nah-gee-suh)

Gender: Uni-sex  

My boyfriend Anthony likes an Anime show called “Clannad” and the main female character has this as one of her names. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again I absolutely love Japanese names as the meanings are so nice! The meanings of Nagisa are so pretty and the whole name looks like a sweet very ethereal name. I put her pronunciation as nah-gee-suh as that’s how I heard the name from my boyfriend and heard it when I watched a few episodes of “Clannad” so I used the similar spelled name Natisa *see on list of posts* pronunciation as a guide for Nagisa’s pronunciation. This is a very lovely name and I wouldn’t mind seeing or hearing it a bit more.

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.
