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: (Gracefulness, Beauty, Satisfied, Pleasant, Fresh, Abundance, Good Appearance, Even Watering Sufficiency, Revealed Smooth,  Lightness, Agility, Fullness, Good Looks, With a Beautiful Appearance, Great Tenderness, Open to People, Compassionate, Affectionate, Sheep Mountain, Female Caribou, Mountain Goat/ Deer.)

Origin: (Arabic)

Pronunciation: (uh-r-wha, aa-RWaa)

Gender: Female

I forget now where I at first saw this name but it seemed similar to a few other names on this blog. I can’t quite remember which ones. Anyway once I looked up the meanings and pronunciation the name seemed even prettier to me. This name has quite a few meanings all of which I love and it is Arabic which also explains my love of this name, I love the look, pronunciation and meanings of many Arabic names. Of course with this name the pronunciation has to be read and said fast to get it. I tend to want to take too long on a pronunciation instead of saying it fast. Anyway with this name being short and seemingly simple for some it would make a very lovely character 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.

The baby name sites below are where I collect many of the Names, Origins, and Pronunciations I use on this blog.
