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: (White, Holy Silver, Silver, Blessed, Name of one of the daughters of Brychan, a semi-legendary Welsh chieftain (fifth century).)

Origin: (Welsh)

Pronunciation: (Ari-ann-win, Ah - ree - anne - wen)

Gender: Female

When I was looking up information on Eirwyn *see on list of posts* I saw that some had suggested sibling names and Arianwen was among them. I love the purity of the meanings and the over all beauty of the name. Arion or the Welsh form Arian can be for a male character or male child and maybe if you want a girl name then Arianwen. This name also has such a long history which I really like. I for some reason see a fair maiden or a legendary beautiful woman of nobility being names this.

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.
