Fursona name?
« on: March 01, 2018, 08:03:59 pm »
I'm having a lot of trouble coming up with a fursona name. Do you guys have any ideas? More importantly, how did you guys come up with the names for your fursonas?

I know the design of my fursonas very well before I pick a name, including their personality. I also make sure that the name isn't too hard to pronounce, is recognizable, and sounds good. If I can't think of a name right off the bat, I'll usually look up websites with pet names, (or human names, whatever's your preference.)

Each of my characters fit their names quite well in my opinion. If you look at each of them and their names, it makes sense as to why they're named that.

Pecan: Is sweet and fun, soft and has brown color palette
Monarch: Is designed off of a Monarch butterfly, and also has a personality of 'monarchy,' or royalty
Ren: Is my most humanlike character, has the most humanlike name. I found the name from a flower
Zesta: Sounds like the name of a robot in my opinion, is taken from the zest of a lemon, which the character is designed off of.

Maybe try to base your fursona's name from a film maker or actor you like!

That’s a good idea

My 3 favorite directors are Quentin Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick, and Denis Villeneuve, so...

How I named my fursona was just took something people knew me for at the time, and attached the species I wanted at the end.

Konba means combat in haitian creole. If you pick an obscure enough language, no one will ever know!

Seriously, wolverines are super uncommon fursonas.

Maybe I should change my fursona to a mitochondrion?

I stole Graham's name from a book character. My other 'sona, Wendigo, has gone through a bunch of different names because I had trouble finding something that fit. These included song titles and random words I like.

Also, here's my list, that really needs to be updated again soon.

I would recommend just going to baby name sites. That's how I find all of my names...or just make up the name.
Avery is my preferred name. I actually used it for a normal character beforehand, and I found it on a baby naming site. But I decided that I really love the name and now I go by it, as does my fursona.
For marble, it just came to me...I guess? Because they reminded me of marble tiles.

Most of my sonas names are ripped from characters(typically my favorites) from video games and such. My current being named after a character in Skyrim, since I liked the character and very much loved the name.
I'm very original with my names XD
But usually I make sure my sonas names are names I like and can see myself using(or even preffer using over my real name) since people will pretty much be referring to me by that name most of the time online ^^ even my alts have names I don't mind people calling me.
So when picking out a name I usually cycle through my favorite characters or even favorite words or objects that'll fit the character that I'll enjoy using for myself. So my personal rule is to only use names I think of myself or has a more personal meaning so I can connect with them better but baby name sites provides lots of cool names and their meanings ^^
