As a writer, I find names and their meanings and origins to be incredibly interesting and useful to know when I’m creating characters.
Every Saturday I will be posting five names, their pronunciation, origin, meaning, well-known people with that name, as well as any alternate spellings or nicknames.
If you have any names you would like to see or if there is anything you would like me to include with each name then let me know!
