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.

Rhydian / Rhidian

Meaning: (It's a form of Rhydwyn, which is a village in Wales. The name apparently means 'Blessed, White Ford' or 'Crossing'. Also from Old Welsh rhudd ‘Red’. Ardor, Passion. Sharing some similarities with Rowan. An early Welsh saint may have had this name. There is a church established by the saint in the 6th century.)

Origin: (Old Welsh)

Pronunciation: (RID-ee-an, hri DEE an, HRID yan)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I was watching a show a few weeks ago and it had an all English (British) cast. One of the male characters was named Rhydian. I fell in love with this name. I had never heard of this name before. Upon looking it up I really do like the meanings. I love the spelling and I think I love it because recently I am becoming obsessed with Welsh names. I am not sure where this may be used but it seems to fit in the modern era as it was in the show I watched. I also read that this is a commonly used name in Wales, Ireland, and Scotland.

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.
