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, Fair, Blessed, Holy, Smooth, White Wave, Variant of Guinevere)

Origin: (Welsh, Cornish)

Pronunciation: (GWehN-AOR-aa, GWEN-OR-UH)

Gender: Female

I was looking up names with White and Fair as the meaning and had Gwen in it. I stumbled upon this one. I have decided to use this as the name of an ancestress of the main character in the novel I am currently writing just as I used Eulalia *see on list of posts* as an ancestress name. I love the beautiful meanings. It is a nice alternative to the variant Guinevere. It does look like a unique mash up of Gwen and Nora. It could look made up by some but it really is a name.

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.
