lol guess

I adopted Cleo as a character, so she came with the name.
My characters really aren't that interesting.

Basically I was using the character Serana from Skyrim as quick thing for SCW ended up really liking going by the name(I have a thing with "S" names it seems, even my online nickname and username are normally "S" names .o.) so decided to name my new vampiric cougar sona Serana, always liked the name Serena anyway so it just feels right ^^

Pixel is actually my 'sonas nickname.
Her true name is Kiku Syresi. Kiku (meaning chrysanthemum) was the name she came with when I got her and, although I did not personally want to always use it for her, kept it as I found it super cute.
Her surname, Syresi, was chosen not for any particular meaning it has but moreso because I love elvish/fantasy things and it sounded like an elvish/fantasy name to me.
Pixel, her most commonly used name, also her nickname, was actually chosen even before I got her.
I have seen some characters with art related names (Scribbles, Stylus, and Doodle to name a few) and sort of fell in love with the idea of art words as 'sona names. This began the process of coming up with her name. I ended up settling on Pixel for two reasons, I just love how it sounds as a name, and although I am terrible at making it, I love pixel art.

Gaz is my only fursona who's name has no meaning behind it. It's just something I thought sounded good and once I had the design down it stuck.

Foxi's name came from my nickname at the time, which was, you guessed it, Foxi. It was originally just a placeholder till I gave her a real name, but it kind of just stuck.

Katsuro's is one I looked up when searching Japanese names and liked. I thought it suited him.

Karasu's I chose because it's a really pretty word Imo, and it suited her. It's Japanese for raven, my favorite bird.

Lyric's is because I wanted something music-related for her.

Kyro's I kinda just threw together one night. I've always pronounced it "Kie-ro", but I honestly don't care if people say "Keer-o". Whatever you prefer, I can't decide on a pronunciation xD

Jamison was actually named by Bluefox in an RP xD
I just stuck with it, since it suited him.

Lemon Meringue just reminded me of lemon meringue pie somehow.

I liked the name Harlow better than her previous name (Starling). Her last name, Jackson, references a Panic! At The Disco song, but I might change it to Flack in reference to a Fall Out Boy song.

Donny is short for Donovan. Ive always liked that name for one thing.
But, it really seemed to fit him whenever I put together his personality. It was like a "click" and i've stuck with it ever since.
Something about it brings out his quirkiness and happy go-lucky attitude.

Tots - Spots but Tots.
Skylar - I've loved the name Sky since I was a kid, so Skylar seemed like a good name.
Poxi - Named after Pockys, the candy.
Mar - Marzena, Polish for dreams. I shortened it to just 'Mar' because I used to go by that name, since I don't exactly like my full name. I had her share that trait with me.
Abigail Matha Noon - I thought of a normal name, one you'd actually see someone having. I couldn't help but to add in the Noon bit though   :fox-:P:
Pink Lemonade - I'm an addict. Raspberry tea and Pink Lemonade all the way~
Aislinn - It means dream, or a vision. Seeing as Ash is stuck in the clouds 24/7, I thought the name to be appropriate.
Gillette - A while back I was looking up some old French names for a school project and thought Gillette was a pretty name. Although it's a male-given name, I thought it sounded quite a bit like Juliet.

And that's all! At least, all for now.  :fox-;):

Kipekee means "unique" in Swahili, which I thought was the word that described me best when I created her. Her last name is nothing special lmao, just a combination of her breed/hair color and the common "ington" ending because IM GREAT at naming things.

Tabbystar was originally a Warriors OC so that's why her name is so weird. "Tabby" is after her breed (wooaah I'm so original) and "star" is the suffix for leader cats in the Warrior series. She was the leader of "MoonClan" in her original canon XD

Daniel Tracy is heavily inspired by Ciel Phantomhive and Alois Trancy so I chose names that were similar.

Passion is probably my favorite name for any of my characters since it fits her so well, after her passion for music.

"Crooked nose" is the literal translation of my real life name. 0.0 So, I was like "hey, that could be a Warrior Cat name!" So I made an OC out of it XD Storywise though, she's named for her bent nose.

I made Rose as a sister counterpart to an old friend's OC, a FNAF-loving fox named Lily. So, I made mine a FNAF-loving fox that was also named after a flower. Her fur color is rosy pink, so that's a reason too. I'm no longer friends with that Lily person anymore, and since then Rose has a new sister called Cherry for her cherry-red fur and just because it's darn cute. Idk, I imagine the two having a relationship like Katniss and Prim/Rue. Besides that, the name Rose doesn't fit her at all since she is NOT graceful, serene, beautiful, or feminine in any traditional way. XDD

Mackerel is Tabbystar's brother, so naturally, he was named after his breed as well. XDDDDDDD

Firewind is another Warrior Cats name. "Fire" is the really defining part of her name since it captures so much about her. She has flame-orange fur, is meant to be stereotypically ""hot"", and just has a very fiery, passionate, feisty, and fierce personality in general. As for "wind", it doesn't say much about her, but I wouldn't give up that suffix for the world. I guess while her "primary element" is fire, air would be her secondary. When creating her I guess I named her that for her speed or something, but mostly it just sounds really nice with "fire."

Nicael is literally just jibberish. Jibberish makes for the best demon names. Or dragon names. Or any mythical creature name. He was ironically named Tom at first soooo

Kirby is a very gluttonous character, she really loves food, and will eat anything, no matter what it is. I found this trait similar to the video game character Kirby and named her after it.

Kitkip Mikaoo has six letters in each name because she was originally a Homestuck fantroll. I wanted her to represent me in the Homestuck roleplaying community (a time short lived lol) so I gave her a name similar to Kipekee's. One half is "kit", the word for a baby fox, and then "kip" for obvious reasons. And it's literally one letter from "KipKip", sooo. As for Mikaoo, it's a scrambled version of "okami" (Japanese for wolf) with an extra O tacked on. She's not related to wolves at all but AYYYYY CANINES

Rayne Luiinali is just Rayne because it sounds edgy. She's sister to Sol Suiinali and together they are a night-and-day duo. Sol represents daytime, so Sol is Latin for sun and "Su" from her last name is also taken from "sun." As for Rayne, she represents night, so "Lu" in her last name is taken from Luna, Latin for moon. Anyways, "-iinali" is just jibberish.

Drake Drew is a lizard. "Drake" is a draconic sounding name, and dragons are pretty similar to lizards, so I thought it fit. Besides it also sounds like the name for such a "cool guy" like him. As for Drew, it just sounded nice together and the name Joey Drew from BatIM was stuck in my head.

Greyson Nodieah is Greyson for obvious reasons- gray fur and a grumpy personality. "Nodieah" is made up of the letters from "anhedonia" which is a condition he suffers from.

Bahari Maua literally means "ocean flower" in Swahili, which are both things she loves very much. It also kinda describes her personality, "ocean" since water is calm and so is Bahari, and "flower" for beauty and femininity.

Geez that was way too long

I chose Aida because I thought it sounded cool and fit the character. As for the origins, I'm a big fan of old electronics and I used to (and still do) spend a lot of my time on electronics fromus that discuss old electronics, and around the time I was trying to name him I came across this radio reciever, and I thought "that's a neat name"

I chose Pecan Brownie b/c of the desert aspect that matched my sister's as well as her fur coloring. I also really think the name fits her personality.

I chose Monarch's name not only because of the obvious, but also it's double meaning as like, royalty or hierarchy. Mona is a drama queen.

Ren's name came from a list of different names all related to plants or flowers. I think it came from this flower called Renanthera.

Lastly, Zesta's name came from lemon zest, of course! I also thought it sounded robotic.

Omaha Húsavík (I just decided on the name earlier today) - I wanted his first name to be a town, and I thought Omaha sounded nice. Húsavík (hoo-sa-veek) was a suggestion from Sprite Limehead. It's also the name of a small Icelandic town.

My first, only, and current fursona's name is Flimsy Fox.

I was thinking "I want my species to be a fox [Because that's SOOOOOO original], and people know me for being 'flimsy.' Hmm..." That's how Flimsy Fox was born.
