Last names for fursonas?
« Reply #40 on: November 28, 2015, 06:01:42 pm »
Do you think it helps or hurts the character?

I've honestly never been a fan, but I recently thought of a last name that I think sounds great with my fursona's name, and I'm actually debating adding it on. Thoughts on this? Do any of your fursonas (or characters in general) have last names?

(I didn't realize there was already a thread for this, sorry. Thanks for moving this topic to this thread.)

I don't see how it would hurt a character?
Most of my sonas have last names, I usually borrow some of my favorite artist's last names.
I don't really add the last name though to most things.
I do have a shirt of my sona and it has Xantera Lucker on it. But other than that I don't really use it, it's just there to be complete.

Solstice and Faye don't have last/middle names but Skyline does! Her last name is Lyra, there's no story behind it, I just thought it sounded nice and since her world is supossed to be the same as ours but with anthros it would make sense that she has a last name

I don't see how it would hurt a character, I personally prefer my characters to have full names instead of just a first name because almost everybody has at least a last name so it just makes them feel a tad bit more real to me :3
Nagi currently does not have a last name as I have yet to think of anything fitting. Farron on the other hand has a full name which is Snow Farron Husky(last name wasn't suppose to be serious but it stuck), with her preferring to be called by her middle name instead of first name.
Farron and all characters associated with her are the only characters I have with a last name. I already have a hard time coming up with names for my characters, so they usually just have a first name XD plus not a lot of them are as developed as Farron.

I love the last name Alastair!

Well, Conduit's last name is Omicron because I'm an unoriginal buttmunch who uses Greek letters as surnames. She doesn't have a middle name, but if she did it'd probably be Taffita. Doesn't fit well, but it's used when necessary.

Gaz actually does have a last name, but I don't think many people around here know about it, probably older members.
I just don't use it often at all.


Gaz's last name is Mynta (Me-Yintah)


It's something I thought of well creating him, I was going to put some story behind him but I never really got around to doing anything.
I think last names can be good for a character.  :lion:

Personally I think a last name really makes the character more realistic. A first name is cool and all but when you have a middle or last name it just completes them
For example I have Ellie. It's a boring name all on its own right? But when you add in "SilverMoon" to it she seems more complete. Hence the name Ellie SilverMoon

All of my characters have last names to make them all seem more real, well except for Rivet

I usually just give my character's a single name. I think the only reason surnames exist is to differentiate someone with a common first name and to show ties to your family. I don't think that would too much of a problem in this fandom, and I don't see why talking animals would have to conform to that. None of my pets or animal friends needed first names. It's usually much simpler to go by first name.

I recently created a fursona that does. Her name is "Pepper Pannda" (yes, with two n's).
She's based on a character from one of my favorite cartoons ever, so she had to have the whole name.
Most of the time I'll be referring to her as Pepper Pannda, because it sounds better.

My characters usually do at least have last names. Usually only main ones have middle names. I think it adds to the depth of the character and makes them more realistic. Small details can be defining traits of a character.

My son's full name is Elizabeth Danielle Reiter. But instead of going by her first name she goes by Dani and only her family calls her Lizzy. It has a little bit to do with her personality and the way her family and everyone sees her. It can definitely be a useful trait.

Sharkbait von Hai. lol


adding to this

i like, altered it slightly to Sharkbait van Haai
von Hai was german, van Haai is dutch, and i figured since i'm dutch (i have dual citizenship even lol) it'd make more sense

it's literally translated to "sharkbait the shark" how original right
