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: (Fancifulness, Impulsive, Whim, Whimsical, Playful, Tantrum, a Lively Piece of Music. From Italian Capriccio which originally referred to a feeling of horror causing the hair to stand on end (in Italian Capriccio, meaning, Hedgehog Head) the word later became associated with Italian Capra, referring to the goat, and animal whose sudden changes in direction and jumps indicate Capriciousness. Also hence the musical term.)

Origin: (Italian, French, English)

Pronunciation: (Ka-PREESE, Kah-PREES, Kaa-PRI-Z)

Gender: Female

I have wanted to put this on for sometime but didn’t remember to put in on the list until I saw Pride & Prejudice (2005) the other day and they used the word and it reminded me to use the word as a name as it was often used. I like the sweet look to this and the meanings. It has a sweet lovely feminine vibe to it and I think would make a cool characters name. I think it would look cool on a noblewoman, ex. Lady Caprice, Princess Caprice.

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.
