Character Names

Have you ever struggled to name a character? I enjoy naming my characters because I am giving them their (in essence) first bit of personality. I go in-depth when naming my characters, searching out the meaning of their names. Or if I use someone’s name, from real life, I try to mirror those aspects into my character. Two great websites for this is and If you are looking for more in-depth I suggest the first website. For more broad or time specific I would browse the second website.

In my personal belief, people’s personalities often mirror the meaning of their names. Not always in a way others can see. Of course, this is merely a writer speculating. I hope you enjoy the links I have provided, comment below if you have another way of finding character names!
