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: (Bleeding, Blood)

Origin: (Spanish)

Pronunciation: (sahn-gree'-ah, san-gree-ah, if you want to hear how Sangria is said then go to this site and run your cursor over Sangria to hear how it is pronounced:

Gender: Female

I was listening to music on one of the music channels on my TV and I heard the song Sangria by Blake Shelton and I fell in love with the song and I kept thinking though Sangria is a wine that wouldn’t it be cool as a name. So I decided to name a character this. Well a Queen in one of my novels was nameless and so I thought about it and the name actually seemed to fit as she has flame or blood red hair and Sangria wine is named such because of the color and in Spanish means Bleeding or Blood. Queen Sangria fit perfect for that character and I love saying Sangria for some reason, though I tend to lean toward pronouncing it sahn-gree'-ah.

It has a very ethereal gorgeous look and feel when said. It does remind me of a very exotic like character with flowing black hair, copper complexion, and piercing sea blue eyes.
