I had been toying around with some irishy names for awhile, and then I saw inception and saw the guy was called Cillian - a name I hadn't heard before - then I started applying it to my fursona and it kinda fitted, so I started using it.

well i'm like an elder scrolls fanatic, and if you have played oblivion and done the mages guild (yeah you can already tell i'm a HUGE nerd) you would know in bruma, when the mages guild burns down, j'skar (the khajiit. {a kajiit is an anthropomorphic cat}) is still alive because he was doing a prank with his high elf friend. my fursona is a wolf, but still, j'skar is an awesome name. i write it in daedric leters, because... it looks awesome.

i know i'm a nerd, but i got an awesome name out of it XD

Most people see my name and immediately think Mortal Kombat. Truth is, I've never played Mortal Kombat in my life and therefore I did not name my fursona after the subzero character in the game haha.

I named my fursona after my goalie pads. Yes you heard me right haha. I'm a goaltender in hockey and the pads I use are made by the company named "Brian's". One of the product lines is the subzero line, which is what I use. After thinking of names Subzero was the only name that stuck out in my mind, and so I named my fursona Subzero.

Pretty lame story I know.

Here's my pads if anyone is interested lol. Lighting sucked in it though http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb403/jonny1531/photo.jpg

Alex is my Real name, I don't feel any risk in showing it considering its kinda... well.. everywhere. Galloway was a name my friend came up with when we were thinking of cool last names to make a furry family on steam, and I liked it so much its what we used. Maybe because it reminded me of Gallifrey... or just because its bad-ass

Non of them are named Dreaming funnily enough... but the name Dreaming was inspired by one of my older fursona names

[spoiler]Fluorescency was originally named NightmareSky, that name was a bit of a random 5 minute (un)creation kind of thing, but also a carry-on from my original ''Furry name'', DreamerHusky. The current name is a variant of Fluoresence, which was another random creation really, just a more creative one (the inspiration was gained while reading a Wiki page on chemical compounds, I think?)
Eponym is a funny but short story, I was reading a Wiki article on Elizabeth Hurley and saw the word eponymous in use and instantly though ''Perfect!'', prior to that it was just another nameless character.

CoCo. Inc, well, the ''Coco'' half is a reference to the chocolaty fur colors, the ''Inc'' half is a reference to the ''Co'' (You know... Inc. = Incorporated, Co. = Company?)

Zie is an uncreative 5-minute name I came up with, the fursona was nameless for up to a decade, it's the same story for G.Raft (variant Girraft)

Rex (in the avatar), I guess you can say this was my ''first fursona'', considering I created him over a decade ago... as a very young, uncreative-with-names kid, no points for guessing why I came up with Rex. Sometimes I use ''Rexy'' too, just to add a little creativity.

Oxy I was dying to use this name, at the time I was using it for a side character for an old story. I resurrected one of my nameless childhood characters and gave him that name. I'm not sure where it came from, I'm guessing that it came from the same place that Fluorescene did.

Panama, I'm not actually sure. Pangolin, Panama? *shrug* The name was very random, and it stuck. I am aware that there's no pangolins in Panama, I guess that adds to the humor. 

Jynx, random uncreative name, also spelled سوء الحظ (''Bad Luck'')!

KezKaz, originally Kez. Kez was the name of an admin on an older forum I frequent, years ago in 2004. I've never met them but I'm the forum's historian of sorts. Actually, I intended to use Kaz for this one and figured it was uncreative, then I figured that I probably shouldn't use someone's forum handle as a fursona name thus merged the two.

Older, scrapped fursonas include Leo, Rudolph, Xavier, Dolphin and Falcon... I was never really creative with names. [/spoiler]

... I need a life.

Cchytale = Random nonsense name generated in my head.
Murilega = Means "cat" in Latin.

Simple enough, right? c:
