I'm random, so I gave my fursona a random name.

I chose my fursona's name after being inspired by both the food and chef's of euro descent.

I google searched 'Fancy male names' and found the one I use now.  xD
I would also like start to use it for my name as well, but my friend's would be like "But that's so different than your birth name!" 
Before it was Vandyn though, it was usually Kari.  Because that's what my nickname has been since like 3rd grade.

Name came from someone with a speech impediment. he kept pronoucing my name "Nael" (Variation of Nile) and eventually it stuck. although, the name is pronounced nail. All it really did was change a vowell and switch the positions of the l and e. The last name was a toss up. as you can probally guess, my name is the same spelling as the Oran berry from pokemon. it was my favorite. However, due to the like of final fantasy, i found the character Orran from Final Fantasy Tactics War of the Lions and my last name was branched from that. I loved the fact that he used astrology and was good with it as a power, but thats another story. The middle name came from my liking of yin yang and what it entailed - balance. the middle name (Baransu) is japanese for, you guessed it, balance.

full name is: Nael Baransu Oran.
became a fursona name, and it stuck.
It seems like humans have forgotten that they are animals at heart... We furries awakened to that truth...

What could that mean?

Toranar is a name I came up with back when I was young (relative to my perspective at least) and still creative... I made three "characters" in my head;
Fellik, a driven ranger (I always have him use bows or relate to my love of archery)
Taranthos, My sense of age and wisdom, I usually used him with characters that were stronger and smarter about things.
And finally, Toranar, who started as a supervillain I designed in City of Villains. Slowly he became my sense of fair play, my sense of retribution and my laidbackness.

But people thought I was being stupid and calling Fellik after phallic. Which made me ditch the name out of irritation. Taranthos just doesn't get used often anymore, thus I use Toranar most of the time.

I do use latin words in names nowadays though. Pyrosorex, Albusorex and such. But usually for more personal things or for adult things.

Anyways, Yeah, supervillain name that I really liked. Couldn't think of any others, and wanted to avoid past contacts who knew me as a gamer when I was a kid.... So it just fit.

Oh, I've also gone by the Red goblin replica in a few places. Don't use that handle anymore though, too long for most people.

I choose my furry, Seth's, name because I am completely obsessed with that name. When I turn 18 I am going to legally change my name to Seth.

Cole is my middle name, and Fraiser is a name deep in my family tree, so 1+1=3, and here I am! Yay for terrible math!

Repostin' since I changed my fursona. c:

I was trying to find a name for my fursona, so I went on google translate and typed in snow, since I love the cold and winter.
I got to Chinese and it said "Xuě", and I love simple three letter word names.
I also want to be a detective, and I love the BBC's version of Sherlock, so I decided to slap "Holmes" on the end.
So my fursona's name is "Xue Holmes"
It fits perfectly ^^

I took one of my favourite video game characters(he was also inspiration for the rest of my fursona) and did something to his name.
It just randomly came to mind when thinking about a name.
First one to figure out who the character is gets a cookie!
If I make a bad joke,remember to laugh sarcastically so that I may do the same.

When I was younger I drew a lot of cartoons and created characters, one was named Shamrock, then when I found the furry fandom I gave my character that name :)

  Well my RL name is actually Neil, and I never gave my furry self his own seperate handle. He's the same as me, he just gets to be in more expressive and epic situations, for example, the zombie apocalypse RP I'm currently participating in.

  Other than an extension of my own personality, my is fursona is used mainly to represent myself in the furry fandom, and nothing more. I haven't built some separate life around him.

My actual name + "Ler" =  Tyler.  It's pretty simple but i think it fits my sona' well.  :fox-;):

My fursona originally started out as a Redwall OC for stories and such, and when I found the furry fandom I just decided to use him as my fursona. :P
Character names are always a bit of a challenge for me to come up with, so I really had to think about it. The name originates from the Polish word for otter, which is "wydra". (Yes I am Polish btw. :P ) I just stuck an "n" on the end since it makes the name a bit more complete when said in English. :p

My furrsona's name was actually derived from my real name, which is Carl.

and what i did was just to arrange my real name...and add an X to it.

creating the name "LarcX" in the process ^^
(Full name is LarcX Farrence)
