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.

Pronunciation: (FLAORahN, floor-in)
I saw this name in the 2014 Yearbook of Jehovah's Witnesses. There was a brother in the Philippines that had this name. The meanings seem feminine but the person in the year book was a man. I think the meanings are lovely and beautiful. It has a good foreign pretty name but I think it would look decent on a man.

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.
