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: (Noble, Great, Truthful, Friend, Faithful, Is a form of Aria.)

Origin: (Persian, Latin, English, Hebrew, Italian)

Pronunciation: (AR-re-ah, AHR-yah, AH-ree-yə, AA-RYaa, AA-RYuw)

Gender: Female

I read the information for an episode of The Game of Thrones (which I have never watched and have no desire to) anyway one the main characters name is Arya. I really do love the name and its meanings. It’s unique and really beautiful but the only problem is the pronunciation. There are far too many possibilities. It’s a form of the name Aria *See on list of posts* but I decided to give it, it’s own posting because it looks vastly different than Aria and from time to time I will give variants and forms of other names there own postings.

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.

The baby name sites below are where I collect many of the Names, Origins, and Pronunciations I use on this blog.
