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: (Dream, Vision, Day-Dream, The name has been Anglicized as Esther.)

Origin: (Irish, Gaelic)

Pronunciation: (Ash-leen, AYz-lin, eye-leen)

Gender: Female

I saw this as the name of a main character in a novel a few months ago but I didn’t read the book as it wasn’t my cuppa tea but I did like the name as it looks like a name on one of my old naming lists from years ago and I thought I had added it to my blog but apparently I hadn’t. I love the look and the meanings though I don’t see it being an anglicized version of Esther *see on list of posts* when I see this name.  The closest pronunciation to the way I pronounce it I found is AYz-lin. It’s just one of those Irish names that looks nothing like they are pronounced but for some reason I love Irish names.

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.
