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: (Noble’s Son, Son of Brice)

Origin: (English)

Pronunciation: (BRIY-sən, BRIE-sən, if you want to hear how Bryson is said then go to this site and run your cursor over Bryson to hear how it is pronounced:

Gender: Male, Possibly Uni-Sex

I heard this as the name of a Doctor on show I was watching and on said show they were Doctors who were studying Sloth’s and I love Sloth’s. I love the meanings as I love noble meaning names. As you see with the other meaning it is “Son of Brice” which would be great if this was a name given to the literal son of a character named Brice. However I am not a huge fan of the spelling Brice as I prefer Bryce *see on list of posts*. I’ve actually used the name Bryce before in one of my novels as the newborn baby Prince. The only thing I don’t like is how if said the wrong way this name sounds like Bison, lol!

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.
