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: (Fire, Fiery, Spirit, Brightness, Splendor, From the old Irish name Áed, which meant "fire". This was a very popular name in early Ireland, being borne by numerous figures in Irish mythology and several high kings. Modern form of the Old Gaelic name Aed. Mythology: name of the Celtic sun god. It was a common personal name since long ago, and from the later Middle Ages onwards, was commonly anglicized as Hugh and Eugene. This name is the source form of Aidan and McCoy.)

Origin: (Celtic, Irish, Scottish, Gaelic, Irish Mythology)

Pronunciation: (EE, AY, IY)

Gender: Male

It is a diminutive for Egan *see on list of posts* but I decided to add them as two different names as I often do because even as diminutives or variants a name can look so very drastically different. This name has nice strong meanings. It has a nice long use and could be used because of its history, mythology, just the nice look of the name. Or it could be a character name but they use one of the anglicized names when maybe in another country. I don’t however like the pronunciation, it is just two letters. Maybe with the proper accent it might sound alright but to me it doesn’t sound right. But when looking up Fire names I found this and it has been a name I had wanted to add for sometime but forgot about until I was looking up Fire names.

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.
