i actually looked up different translations of "bad wolf" i believe ( quote/plotline in doctor who) :p, and i finally came across the Estonian translation "kuri hunt" and i just fell in love with the name..... i just changed my name because i didn't really have a connection with the name Chris.....

My fursona name came from the books written by Erin Hunter called Warriors, I went to there site and took a test to see my warrior name and the name that popped out was Brambletalon. So I decided to use that name as my fursona later on.

Mine is Arakados because the first and last letters are my initials.
Also because it fits with a dragon.

My fursona's name, Katie, actually came from the favourite [shh, don't tell the others] of my dogs. She's a sweetheart and I love her and I really love the name Katie :3 Her last name, Swann, was just a "Hey, you're reading a book, friend; what's the last name of one of the characters? Swann? Katie Swann. Okay. I like that. Thanks." haha.

Only one of my 'sonas has a name and he is Dexter Dacian. I got Dexter from the fact that it is a nickname given to me by a youth worker at a youth center I went to. Since Dexter was my favorite show he called me Dexter and said I would grow up to be a homicidal murderer with a god complex. Dacian I got from the Dacians, a nation during the times of ancient Greece that lived around where Romania is today. When they went into battle they would behead a wolf and attach the tail of a serpent onto it and hoist it on a spear, it was called the Dacian Draco. So there Dexter Dacian the Draco was created.

I decided the name of my fursona would be a nickname I got a while ago from most of the people at my school. The nickname I got because I would get in a lot arguments with people and wouldn't back down, as the arguments progressed I would get louder and louder and louder until just being in the room next door would make your ears ring, so people said I yelled like a banshee and the name just stuck.

My fursonas name was originally Shadow, but I felt that make was too used so I changed it to Kaze which means wind in Japanese. I watch anime, and I love Japan, the culture, the language, the anime :fox-;): Haha so thats kinda my story :fox-:P: Although one of my OCs name is Avoi, which is short for avoidance, because he is an escaped test experiment, and he decided he would avoid the facility at all costs. He never had a name at the facility, so thats what he choice :blush-fox:

I originally wanted to incorporate my dog into my fursona somehow. Because she is part Shih-tzu, I found a word that sounds somewhat similar to that (that also means quiet, so I guess it reflects my personality as well?) with the "ko" suffix that would turn it into a girl's name. I also really like the kanji for Shizuko as well.

Blitz was like, my favourite name for a dog.  XD Even though he isn't a dog, Blitzy just seemed really cute at the time.  x3
His last name, Hawkeye, came from my ex's fursona's last name.  x3 I couldn't think of one, and we were really close, so we decided that we would have the same one~

I chose this name because I've always liked to draw characters (human or furry) with white or silver hair. In an anime, I always liked the character with the white/ silver hair the most. So, one day I was looking at furry pictures and the character I chose had silver hair, and since white is the color of snow I kinda just decided on that. Boring story I know I know

Plain and simple!  At the time when I was creating my sona I had an obsession with Pink Floyd (brilliant, brilliant music).  And one day while I was listening to their music I started to wonder if "Floyd" is supposed to be a name or just a weird word.  I searched it up, found out that it is in fact a name of Welsh origin, and decided it would be a cool and unique name to give my sona.

The meaning of the name Alexander represents my fursona's personality for the most part. Plus, all the famous people named Alexander (Alexander the Great, Alexander Graham Bell, Alexander Hamilton, etc.). Also the name is fun and interesting to say.

Well, now that I have a new fursona, I'll explain how I got the name. My friend's dog is named Vincent, and I thought, "Hm, that's a cool name.", so it stuck.

I couldn't think of a name, so I ended up looking at some constellation names for one reason or another, I ended up choosing 'Celbelrai' which means 'Dog of The Shepard'.

BucketHead is my most well-known real-life nickname, so I gave it to both my ponysona and, eventually, my actual main fursona.  How it came about, well... a long time ago, while my best friends' aunt was still building her house, we went over for a bon fire.  My friend went to the bathroom, and so I thought It'd be funny to scare the bajeebas out of her, so I grabbed a stick, put a bucket on my head, and jumped out in front of her.  Everyone got quite a laugh out of my antics, to say the least.  After that night, it just kinda' stuck, and so I used it for my fursona.  (Also, the guitarist BucketHead is pretty amazing, too...)
My alternate fursona is an alien with cat tails (still kinda' makes her 'furry', right?), and her eyes change colour based upon her mood.  So, one day, I was playing a fill-in-the-blanks type of game, and the main character ended up being nicknamed "OddEyes", and I liked it, so I gave it to my alt. fursona. Fits, I suppose.
