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 Woman of the Garden, Gwen: White, Fair, Blessed, Holy Gana: Garden)

Origin: (Welsh, Hebrew)

Pronunciation: (GWehN-GAA-NAA)

Gender: Female

I was looking up another name Gwenllian *see on list of posts* and someone said another nice name is Gwen-Gana. They gave the meaning White Woman of the Garden and I was instantly transfixed by the gorgeousness of the name and meaning. However I have not been able to determine if it is a real name and has been used.

So I decided to look up the names separately and together the names do come to mean White Woman of the Garden. So maybe someone else put these together but I can’t tell if it’s a legit name or is just a double barrel name. Either way it is beautiful and worth being added here. I did however find a spa or restaurant in Australia named Gwenganna so maybe it is a real name. If anyone knows about this name then please let me know in the comment section of this post and I will be grateful.

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.
