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: (Huge or Round Wheel, Silver Disc, Silver Circle, Silver Wheel, arian, "silver," and rhod, "wheel" may be cognate with Proto-Celtic *Arganto-rotā, meaning "silver wheel." Alternatively, the earliest form of the name may have been Aranrot, in which case the first part of the name would be related to "Aran." In Welsh myth Arianrhod was the mother of the twin brothers Dylan and Lleu Llaw Gyffes. In earlier myths she was a goddess of the moon, sky, and stars.)

Origin: (Welsh, Welsh Mythology)

Pronunciation: (aaR-iy-AENRaaD, ahr-ee-AHN-hrod, Go to this site and run your cursor of the name Arianhrod to hear how it is said:

Gender: Female

When I was looking up information on Aelwen *see on list of posts* I saw that some had suggested sibling names and Arianrhod was among them. This name has a very unique spelling. I do like the meanings and the mythology is interesting but I do not like the relation of this name to pagan religions and often Wicca rites. I think if this name were separate from that it would be much better. As it is this name is pretty but I could see one being thrown off by the spelling but I think it does have a unique charm to it.

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.
