Character Naming

As an Author naming your Character is an important step right after coming up with the plot. I am here to help you choose the right character name for you and your story.

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.

Meaning:  (Ara: Brings Rain, Lion, Alter, Is the name of a Constellation, Ara was a legendary Armenian King. Also a nickname for Arabella. Lorn: From Lorne, Marquis of Lorne, The first name is ultimately derived the Scottish place name Lorne in Argyll, via the title Marquis of Lorne. The title was borne by the first Governor General of Canada, John Campbell (1845-1914), and thus the name became rather common among Canadians.  Also a variant of Lawrence “from Laurentum”)

Origin: (Armenian, Arabic, Latin, Scottish)

Pronunciation: (Ara: AA-Raja, EY-R-aa Lorn: Lorn, LAORN Aralorn: AIR-ah-lorn)

Gender: Female, Possibly Uni-Sex

I was flipping through a fantasy book a few weeks ago at a used book store and the main characters name was Aralorn. I really think it is beautiful in a very fantasy name way. I think it could be used in others novels because it is just a combo name between Ara and Lorn. The meanings are beautiful.
