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: (Scottish form of Margaret from the root for Pearl, name of a saint.)

Origin: (Irish, Scottish)

Pronunciation: (Muh-raid)

Gender: Female

I was looking at a YA novel a few days ago and one of the characters had this name. I love Irish names just as much as Japanese names as the meanings are lovely but with Irish names the look of the name is what gets me the most. This name has such a very pretty look about it and the meaning is very old but beautiful. The only down fall is the pronunciation of this name but that’s the down fall with me and many Irish names, the pronunciation throws me off often.

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.
