Favorite type of names!
« on: April 28, 2016, 05:39:33 pm »
I was just working on one of my characters and I got thinking of names and how I have a liking for certain letters and thought this might be a fun topic^^

So what are your favorite type of names, like do you like fantasy names, Japanese names or even objects, animals or even simply names that start with "A"? Maybe you like a certain sound :P

I notice that I really like Greek names, theres just something about them I really like although I don't use them very much >u< Letter wise I like names starting with "L"(probably cause my rl name starts with L), "N" another bias XD, "S" and "T". Working on a new character now and really adamant on her name starting with L XD

May add more later just wanted to post this^^

Sorry if this has been done already I didn't see one but maybe I missed it ;u;

I like Greek names too! I think they're really interesting, and my fursona's middle name has Greek origins. One of my friends recently made a fursona and its name is also Greek (or so she told me).

As for other names, it's kinda hard. I usually take a liking to weird/unique names that aren't horrifically long or hard to spell. I have a whole list of cool names written down just in case I ever need inspiration for naming a character.

      Romantic names sound the most pleasing to me. Romantic names refers to French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Romanian names. All of these names descended from Latin praenomina (first names) such as "Caelestis" which my name comes from. Some of these names are fairly common in English speaking nations, but some are exoctic in sense of their commonality to English speakers. My favorite is definately the French names. If you want something really unique, you should browse through Romanian names. Some of them look normal while others are wonderfully unique. Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese names are closely related and easy to pronounce for Emglish speakers. The names are spelled in a convient way where, for the most part, the names are pronounced how they are read and their pronounciation is very fluid and soft-sounding. In certain cases, pronounciation rules do apply, ecspecially in Italian, but it still sounds good to the ear. I love French names though because I find them absolutely beautiful and aesthetically appealing.

I agree though, I like names beginning with L, M and N. Also like European names.

For my fursonas I usually use objects/words that aren't names. Such as Solstice, Skyline and Pepper

For my human characters/human names in general I don't really have a preference. There's certain names I'm draw too and use frequently (Faye is one of these names) but if I'm trying to come up with a new name I just start listing names in my head or looking through name lists until I find one I like. I don't seem to have much of a preference but I guess I tend to pick more British/American/Canadian names

Okay this is stupid but I love when animals are named after other animals. One of my friends has a cat named Pigeon and that's just so cute ;w; Also, my betta is named Fish because there are no names that describe him, haha.

Other than that, I really like food names. Most of my Pokemon are named after food, idek why its just cute to me I guess :cookie:

YESSS. THIS. It's the cutest thing ever. X3
Or something like 'Spot' for a pet that isn't spotted. xD It's quite a fun thing to do. :fox-:P:

Traditionally British names: Percival, Donald, Minerva, Elizabeth, and Johnathan are examples. A suggestion is to never used shortened forms. John=Johnathan Minny=Minerva Mary=Miriam.

I like fantasy named (Faerydae is one of my favorite female name). I tend to gravitate towards names that start with the letter A (hence why I chose the name Avery)

I love when names have personal meanings. A lot of my favorite names are my friends' names because they're my friends' names.
I also like funny names, especially for pets. Someone I used to know had a few cats, and most had really fancy names (I don't remember all of them, but one was Gideon.), and then there was just Meatball. I also learned, yesterday, that my dog will answer to "Smelly" because I jokingly call her that so often.
