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.

Origin: (French, Spanish, English)
Pronunciation: (chay-pin, CHAY-pun, SHahPAEN)
I was watching a Lifetime Movie about these teen girls who play Triple Dog Dare and the dares escalate. Anyway the girl who started the dare thing was named Chapin and I came to love that name a lot. It is interesting, unique and has a great look and meaning. It's a name you don't hear or see often. I think seeing this name in a contemporary modern movie that this name could fit many different genres and characters.
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.
