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: (God’s Promise, Derived from Elisabeth and a variant of Isabel. Isabeau of Bavaria was Queen Consort of France as the wife of King Charles VI, whom she married in 1385.)

Origin:  (Hebrew, English, French)

Pronunciation: (IS-ah-bo, EE-sah-bo, IY-Zaa-BOW)

Gender: Female

I was looking up the name Rhydian *see on list of posts* the other day and there was a woman’s list of names that I read on one site and I really liked a few of them. Isabeau was one of the names on her list. This may seem like a modern name but it was apparently a name used as far back as 1385 so it could be used in historical novels but it still has a cute modern vibe to it. So what I am saying it seems timeless to me. I do though want to pronounce it IS-ah-boo not IS-ah-bo but that is my only problem when I keep seeing this name.

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.
