Names are an important part of all good characters. Names can be brave, funny, or menacing, and are an essential part of character creation. Personally, I always need a name for my characters before I can flesh them out, and that’s why today’s post will provide guidelines for crafting memorable, powerful and effective character names.
Consider Character Traits:
Is your character a tad meek, and maybe a little hopeless? If so, name them Neville Longbottom!
Is your character a tough, competant, I’ll-do-it-alone kinda guy? If so, call them Han Solo!
A character’s name is a reader’s first experience of that character. Thus, it makes sense to use names to reflect a character’s personality.
