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.

Eirwyn / Eirwen

Meaning: (Snow White, White as Snow, Blessed Snow, Snow, Fair, White, Blessed, Holy, The name is known to create a dual nature where someone at one hand wants change and on the other is attuned to their system of doing things and doesn’t want any change. People given this name are known to be restless and out to explore new ideas.)

Origin: (Welsh)

Pronunciation: (EY-RWihN, eh-r-w-ih-n, IRE-win, AYER-wen, ay-er-wen, AYR-win)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I am using this name in one of my current novels, I am actively writing two. I was looking up a name and I saw on someone’s comments board that they were thinking of naming their daughter this. I fell in love with the look and meanings of this name. I have always wanted to use as a middle name Snow as in Snow White because I love that fairy tale, of course the middle name Belle would be used first for a daughter. Anyway so that is why I love the meanings. Plus as I saw this name I was actually looking for a name for one of my secondary characters and this name fit perfect. Plus the other information about this name and ones named it surprisingly fit the character to a T, lol. The name is very beautiful and poetic like in my opinion. I am also in love with Welsh names right now and this was a perfect fix for my Welsh obsession, lol.
The pronunciation can throw some off and well I had to go listen to it a few times to finally hopefully have it down, lol. AYER-wen and ay-er-wen are the best ways as for the way I heard it.
