Character Names

(home > characters > names)

There are an endless amount of names to use when choosing characters for your story or novel. There a few caveats. You don't want to pick a character that obviously does not fit with his or her background. You always want to avoid using known characters from fiction, such as Clark Kent or Lisbeth Salander. You also don't want to pick the name of a person you know especially if you are using any identifiable character traits.

This page provides resources where can find some information names as well some character name generators.

Baby Name and Other Name Resources

Baby naming guides and tools have always been helpful to writers just as they are to parents. In this case you are naming a character instead of a baby.
