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: (Bitter, Combination of Maria and Sol ‘Sun’. Sometimes interpreted as mar y sol- Sea and Sun)

Origin: (Spanish)

Pronunciation: (Maa-Riy-SAAL, mah-ree-sole)

Gender: Female

I was at a wedding at the end of August and there was a woman there whose name is Marisol. She was a good friend of a woman who attends my congregation at our Kingdom Hall (place of worship). I had seen the woman before but I didn’t know her name was Marisol. Now I have heard the name Marisol before, most notably on CSI: Miami. I also heard it on the movie Cheetah Girls 2. I think it is a really pretty Spanish name. It is super exotic sounding and the meanings are good.

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.
