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: (Enthusiasm, Ardor, Rashness, Variant of Rhys.)

Origin: (Welsh)

Pronunciation: (Reese, Rice, RIY-Z, RYS (English), HHRIYS (Welsh))

Gender: Male, Possibly Uni-Sex

I was looking up a name that was a variant of Rhys and saw Rhyce that too is a variant of Rhys. The meanings are nice and agreeable. The spelling is what I like particularly. It has a unique unseen quality. And again it is a Welsh name, which I love. I would love to use this name as a character name if a character should arise who seems to be a Rhyce. I would love to see this used more 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.

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