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: (Sea Dew, Dew of the Sea, Also a blend of Rose and Mary, or refers to the fragrant herb, which in folklore is the emblem of remembrance.)

Origin: (Latin, English)

Pronunciation: (ROHZ-mare-ee, RowZ-MAERiy, rOHz-mEH-ree)

Gender: Female

I was growing the herb Rosemary this last spring and made plenty of dishes with it. Also a few years ago I kept getting calls from people looking for a lady named Rosemary. I am not completely in love with this name but it is kind of nice for some people I guess. It is a somewhat popular name so I decided to add this. I hear this quite a lot in movies for characters of all ages so it’s not just an old fashioned old ladies name. This could fit in many different genres in books.

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.
