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: (Leader, Spirit, Angel, Friend, The gens Aulia was a Roman family during the period of the Republic, and was probably plebeian. They do not appear to have been particularly numerous, but one member of the gens, Quintus Aulius Cerretanus, obtained the consulship twice during the Second Samnite War, in 323 and 319 BC. The nomen Aulius is a patronymic surname, derived from the praenomen Aulus, just as Sextius was derived from Sextus, Marcius from Marcus, and Quinctius from Quintus. Although there were Aulii at Rome in the 4th century BC, the gens may have been spread throughout Latium, as one of them was prefect of the allies during the Second Punic War.)

Origin:  (Roman, Latin)

Pronunciation: (Aww-lee-uh)

Gender:  Female

I was looking up rare names and came across this one. It has decent strong meanings and a unique history of use. I like the general look and it does seem pretty but not sure if to me it is awfully memorable. It is one of those names you like and love but then forget about it ten minutes later. I have found that is true of so many names I put on this blog. But then again I can’t remember them all as there are over 700 of them, lol! But for this one I still don’t see it being on my mind for a long time but I wouldn’t mind seeing it in a novel but maybe not as a main character the author would want one to remember.

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.
