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: (Rules an Estate, Head of the Household, Spanish form of Henry)

Origin: (Spanish)

Pronunciation: (en-REE-ke, ehn-REE-kay)

Gender: Male

I have realized I haven’t really put a lot of Spanish names on here or at least not very many for males so I was listening to a music channel on my TV the other day and I was listening to a song by Enrique Iglesias and I thought I do like the name and it is Spanish so I decided to add it to the list. A bonus to this name is I love the name Henry and have used many different spellings and forms of it as a secondary characters name in a few of my novels so this is just another foreign variant which I love.

The meanings are strong and masculine and the name itself has a very Latin sexy flare but it’s a respectable name as well. So I can see this on different types of characters and that’s a very good thing. I would love to see it used more often in literature.

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.
