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: (Hill, Horizon, Gold, Golden Hill, Golden Horizon, My Treasured Dream, Elf Ruler, Of the Hill, Elf Ruler of the Hill)

Origin: (English, German, French, Welsh)

Pronunciation: (Ah-brin)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I saw this name on a bloggers blog, apolla13. This name looks a lot like Aubyn which I have used in one of my longest novels. In that novel Aubyn was a gorgeous sweet younger brother of the brother who nobody quite knew if they should or could trust. As for this name Aubryn I think that R throws it off a tad bit for me and reminds me of other things and names like, Auburn and Aubrey. However there is a unique look here I do like, so much so I’ve used this name in another novel as the name for some woods near my main characters house.

I love the meanings a lot though some I can’t quite authorize as true meanings as other people on naming forums had suggested what the name meant but I liked them so I kept them. The meanings I am not sure about are Gold, Golden Hill, Golden Horizon and My Treasured Dream. Even so I think those meanings are great and beautiful and I will take the word of those that listed it on naming forums. However if you want true meanings stick with the other meanings listed above under meaning.
