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: (Little Dark Eye, Dark Eyes)

Origin: (Irish, English)

Pronunciation: (SUL-i-vən, SULL-uh-ven, Sul-ee-van)

Gender: Male, Possibly Uni-Sex

I think Sullivan would be amazing if paired, perhaps as sibling names, with Donovan*see on list of posts*, Garrison*see on list of posts*, and Flannigan*see on list of posts*. The meaning and look is really great and very sexy if you think of it that way, lol! This is another great Irish name that is seemingly easily pronounced and recognizable.

I think an attractive nickname for this name would be Sully, but it reminds me of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman as Dr. Michaela’s *see on list of posts* (Dr. Mike) love interest and then husband, he went by his last name of Sully.

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.
