Well, my name is merely devil in Klingon. For I am one, and it's more powerful when it's in an alien language.

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.

A little add-on! I had the name Kiwi before I designed her. I was on Pinterest and a kiwi showed up in a post! The rest is history

Thread reviving time!

I just happened to think of Alva, there really isn't any backstory.

However, I found out the name is shared with quite a few places after I named him

For both of my fursonas, it was what I liked or what sounded good to me. Arch’s name came to me at random when I was signing up for a muck, and for whatever reason it stuck with me. His last name, Elmer, is in the same sort of category as my IRL last name, so I went with that. Also, I figured out long ago that if you take a cursive capital G and turn it a bit, it looks like a signature of the letters A and E. I realized that I already had the a down for Arch, and that the g could stand for Gazelle. After that, I went looking for last names that started with the letter E (in the same category as my last name, as previously mentioned) and Elmer just sounded right.

Farrell’s pretty much the same way: his name sounded good and was related in some way to mine so I chose it. As for his first name, Michael, four words: “Hey, Vsauce! Michael here!”

I guess an add on!
Toastie came from an old joke of me being a toaster (the original Toastie, was a toaster) and it was my online persona.
August just seemed like a cute hipster name
Twistie came from Faux Veritas (I'm not even joking) I was trying to tell him Toastie, but due to how loud the meet was he kept mishearing me as saying Twistie XD

this one actually has a bit of explaining to do.
i have always had a connection to outer space, so i knew i wanted something to do with that right away.
our family business makes chocolate, so i combined both.
milkyway, both for the candy bar and for the galaxy. the arrows on the back actually match the stripes of a milkyway bars top.
the last name wishes, was a bit complicated. at first it just randomly popped into my head, so i kept it for a few days.
i was just sitting one morning, and suddenly i remembered like an idiot that "milkyway wishes" was a kirby thing and most likely why it naturally came to me.
i naturally wanted to change it after that. not only could that get me into legal trouble, but i refused to accidentally name my fursona after something from a video game.
at first i went with milkyway mercury, after the planet. then callisto for a bit, named after jupiters second largest moon.
neither of them stuck, and they did not sound right to me.
i went back to wishes as i had naturally thought of it, and it just sounded the best. it may unintentionally reflect my love of video games as well, which i suppose works out if i think of it that way.

His lore helped me to a certan extent,I also used to roleplay a anthro character far before I even considered My fursona.

Adding my alts :P

Luna - I don't quite remember anymore, I was originally gonna name her Viola since I've been sticking to my theme of just using names of my favorite characters or just some of my favorite names from my favorite media cause I'm awful with names but at the time I already had an OC named Viola. Then Luna randomly popped into my head, I always thought it was pretty name and it seemed fitting so it stuck I guess :P

Amy - Name of a character I use in SoulCalibur, its cute but unlike the rest of the names for my sonas I actually prefer not being called it but I had a Viola copy so I wanted an Amy copy too ^^ ironically she's nothing like Amy only similarities is her red hair, red eyes, her occasionally wearing gothic lolitas, being rose themed, and using a rapier. Basically just aesthetically similar :P

Rose - Honestly just randomly came to mind when trying to think of a name for my stufful in Pokemon and it stuck. Its cute name, I love roses, and to keep with my name stealing theme I associate it with Rose from Steven Universe :P

Astrid - Honestly totally random, trying to think of a name for my self centered dog sona cycling through names from my favorite media Astrid from Skyrim kept coming to mind so it stuck. Don't care for the character though, never even finished the Dark Brotherhood questline :v

Lets see...I think thats all for the characters I actually label as sonas minus one who has yet to debut :P

So yeah minus Luna I have been following a theme for my sonas names of just nabbing my favorite names from my favorite media XD As I'm terrible with names, but this method actually made it more enjoyable for me tbh as its almost like a more discreet way of showing my love for certain media or characters ^^ though occasionally the design make them a little less discreet.

I wanted to name him after a town, and I thought Omaha sounded cute. His last name was a suggestion from a friend.

Sakura = pink blossoms...No deep meaning, really. Plus, cherry blossoms (aka sakura blossoms) are my aesthetic. :lgbtheart:

I chose S'more for my fursuit because her colours reminded me of one, especially the one spots on her hips they look like little marshmellows!

Aspen was on a list of names I had for characters, specifically sonas. Nova helped me choose, but I liked Aspen in the end because it would stick with a tree theme (except I don't think there's a dot tree rip) and it was super pretty imo!
