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: (A Genus of Butterfly, Name of an asteroid.)

Origin: (Latin, English Nature Name)

Pronunciation: (AIR-ee-a, ay-air’-ee-a, AIR-ee-uh)

Gender: Female

A friend has a character in one of her stories named Aeria; I hope she doesn’t mind that I post about it. I do love names that start in Ae, the only down fall for me is the pronunciation which I am not so thrilled about. It does look interesting and a bit foreign. A good nickname could be Aery pronounced like Airy.


  1. wow!!! i LOVE this name!! i can't believe i find such amazing names on the web! Aeria is sooo light & special, it would fit any little baby gurl :)

    thx for sharing, Leylla-Jane

    1. Sorry I have just got around to replying, my comments section has been glitching.

      I am glad you like this name and I hope you like the other names I have added and continue to add on my blog. I had never heard of the name Aeria before my best friend told me she was naming a character this. I Googled it and found out what I added about it in the above post.

      I do really love it but the pronunciation trips me up right now but that's a minor flaw for me with this name.

      Again I am glad you like this name. Do come back and check out my blog as I add new names often.


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.
