I got mine from my online name grix,blade (no comma,) but I was terrified because they have looked up my name in google before but the name Xrig stuck and I kind of like it.

I usually just call my sheep Chip. It's silly and cutesy. It's also similar to my real name.
And unlike my deer character (Daimhín), it's actually pronounceable. I had a lot of people asking how my character's name is pronounced. lol

idk if i already posted but here i go, ( again possibly)

i technically had Codename Fox as my "Code name" already before i came to ft.
i had people call me that because i was trying to hint that I'm a furry. of course, no one got it.

but Codename Fox literally just popped into my head one day and i said aloud " Yep!! that's what ill go with from now on! i don't care how non-creative it is!"
and thus started me being called Code name Fox, Code, Foxxy, Codyboy, cutie fox(dun liek that one), and Codename big D, don't know why someone calls me that last one, but i dont care at this point cos i cant stop them XD.

anyway that's my sona's name story!

Oh boy, I went through so many fursona names and designs.

First, they were named Momo(They were a giant pink bunny back then), but I decided that was too cliche. Then they were Pip(they were a house cat then), Then Nano(They were a neon green cat), Then Avery(my rl name, finally became a snow leopard), then Jupiter and finally Juno. I also had other fursonas that I scrapped.
I grew old of Jupiter, so I went searching. I came upon the name Juno (Who was the lover of Jupiter) and decided to just go with that. I think it's cute :)

I didn't want their name to be the same as mine for some reason. Avery just didn't suit them. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Well I usually have alot of characters, so choosing a name can be kinda tricky.. so what I do is draw that character out first then try and decipher the personality of the character, keep in mind what species it is in, color palette, gender. etc.

So example with my old fursona.

Species: Civet.
Colors: Browns, whites, hints of black.
Personality: Dopey, always tired, lady-killer, laid back.
Gender: Male

Name: Macchicato

Which is a name of a type of coffee! And Civets are known to poop coffee beans, his color schemes can be found in the drink, his personality is a person who usally needs that 'pick me up, and his gender made me chosen the exact name. (If he was a female I would had went with the name Mocha).

That's my process of choosing names!

Everyone already calls me Mystic so I just went with it :fox-:P:
Originally I wasn't going to call her Mystic though. I've wanted a character named Amelia for a while (debated between that or Addison for Addison and considered it for Laila too) so when I decided I wanted to make a cow character (because Mystic was originally going to be a character not a fursona) I was going to name her Amelia. Then when I decided to make her my fursona I wanted to change the name because while I love the name Amelia I don't have any special connection to it. So I was going to name her Danielle as that's the name I connect with a lot, problem is one of my main human characters is named Danielle and I didn't want anyone thing they were the same character because they're completely different and Danielle is super personal so it'd break my heart to have people think so was a cow shapeshifter or something. I also liked the nickname Mystic I had acquired in the fandom and all my accounts have the username "MysticSolstice" that I wanted to keep. So I went with Mystic for her name ^^ that way I could keep my nickname and accounts while still having a fursona name I liked and felt connected to

For the other character I have gotten since my last post on here:
-I named my kangaroo Amelia because I ended up not using that name for Mystic and still wanted a character named Amelia and thought it would suit her
-I named my leopard California because I she was beach themed and I wanted something beachy or tropical for her. One of my favourite cats in the Happy Pets game I used to play on Facebook when I was younger was named California and has a similar palette. I also just really love California, I used to obsessed with the state when I was middle school aged and I still really want to visit it
-I named by pigeon Aria because the name just sort of "came" to me after I adopted her. Probably because I had been watching some Pretty Little Liars around that time but I still thought it was pretty and suited her
-I used baby naming websites for Zoey and Brook. I just looked through until I found a name that clicked

I was thinking of words that described me, and "unique" was one that popped up. So I translated it to Swahili (the best language for foreign names tbh, most of the Lion King characters's names are just Swahili words) and out came Kipekee.

Omg
The same exact truck comes to my town

Anywho...
Tabbystar used to be a Warrior Cats OC (hence the "star") and her breed was the tabby and I was really unoriginal with names back then.

Passion had a passion for music.

Crookednose, well, has a crooked nose.

I originally made Rose to be the sister of one of my friend's OCs, who was named after a flower, so I named Rose after a flower too.

Mackerel is Tabbystar's twin, so I made his name a counterpart to Tabby's (the cat breed Mackerel Tabby.)

Nicael was just jibberish that sounded fitting for a demon.

Kirby was named after the video game Kirby because she eats a lot, even if it's not necessarily edible.

Juno, Drake and Rayne just sounded cool/fitting.

Lastly, Kitkip is meant to be the opposite of Kipekee, so her name is similar yet still different.

I think I wanted something that wasn't super passive, but wasn't edgy either. Dolly sounded really weird to me at first, but I think it's unique, but also simple enough to stay with.

It kind of popped into my head, I was thinking about the name Frond or Fern for a while but yeah.
Fursonas with animal or object names is my aesthetic
Plus Goose just fit my character
Honk

This might have been what I was thinking about actually. The name Chair was really stuck in my head?? Now her name is like a kid's toy name oh well.

Avery is simply the name I've been going by for a few years. The name just sounds right, and I wanted my fursona to match my preferred name so I got used to being called it. //shrugs
for blue, the idea just randomly came to me when I was playing a random rat creator lol. I thought it was nice since blue cheese isn't typically the most pleasant food to some, and he was kinda supposed to be a 'gross out' character (( he's cute af tho ))

annnd for Nova, I named her that when she was some kind of space bat. I just kept the name because I've been too lazy to change it, I might change it to something else soon, though. Something more fitting since she's a vampire : p

Leilani and Pill are actually just named after songs that I really like. "Demiurge" is a word that my friend really liked, a while ago, and I thought it sounded cool.
I named a new character Rice just because I thought it would be a funny name. There really aren't any deep, soul-searchy stories behind any of my characters' names.

Since I have a new character now I might as well post here :fox-:P:

I basically was in Spanish class bored and I suddenly got scratched by the whiteboard thingy next to me so I started texting my sister " i got a scratch" only i wrote " i got a gratch" and im like, hey, that could be my DAD character's name, so i was motivated and came up with a design hah

So that's how Gratch came to be
