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: (Promise, variant of ERROL. A place name in countries including Australia, Scotland and the US, for example Airlie Beach in Queensland, Australia and Airlie Castle in Scotland.)

Origin: (Scottish, Irish)

Pronunciation: (AIR-lee, EHRLiy)

Gender: Uni-Sex

When I was looking up Harley *see on list of posts* and Harleen *see on list of posts* I came across Airlie. I think this is actually a very beautiful unique looking name and I really kind of love it a lot. The meaning is lovely and it’s very interesting this is a variant of Errol but that would be amazing if a characters father was named Errol and Airlie was used in honor of the father or maybe even the grandfather.

The pronunciation is easy enough for most but I still want to say it ARE-lee instead of AIR-lee for some reason so I might have to try and rewire my brain to take the proper pronunciation just as I will have to for Irie *see on list of posts*, lol! I can see a very proper lady being named this for some reason like, Lady Airlie or Duchess Airlie.

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.
