Writing Resource: What’s in a Name?

Naming characters can be a difficult task. Sometimes they just come to me, and other times I search and claw and bang my head against the keyboard (figuratively, at least).  I want the name to not only feel and sound right, but also to convey some sort of meaning (at least most of the time).  I’ve been guilty of trolling names site for so long that I use up all of my writing time (I would never procrastinate).

Below are some of my favorite sites for finding names for characters:

Character Board

I also have a board on Pinterst that includes everything for a character–appearance, personality, etc. Click here to see the board.

Saint’s Names

My writing partner, Tamar Hela, gave me the link to the Saint’s Names site above. She has some awesome free resources on her site, too. Click here.

Do you have any great resources for names? If so, I would love to hear from you. 🙂
