I looked up meanings for the word deer, and Ayala popped up, I liked it so it stuck!

Well, my sona and all-around furry-ness came about as the result of one internet game called "FeralHeart"  a little over two years ago.  My character was the result of ten minutes of random color-picking and the choosing of a name through a random name generator.  The name I received was 'Kumiko,' which kinda stuck for a while. 

Eventually, after officially beginning to consider myself a furry, I opted for my sona to be a crow, and changed my name to Kumicrow!  Soon after that renaming, I changed back to a generic cat-thing, but the name kinda stuck. 

So there! ;U;
I have nothing creative to say here?????????????

I was really obsessed with the name Naomi. So one day when I joined a game I wanted a name that wasn't mainstream (so hipster) so I jumbled up the name Naomi and got Nioa. Nothing too magical, but at least it has a source rather than just a random name.

Since I am involved and I love the theatre, I wanted something theatrical. And because im one fourth Czech, I was like why not theatre in czech? Thus the foreign name was born

My current fursona, Jaden Wolfe, got his name from me listening to cool names I heard. I don't hear the name Jaden very often in real life, but it's a name I've heard a couple of times in fantasy/sci-fi stuff, and I decided I liked it. Decided to make that my 'sona's name because it seemed cool at the time. Wolfe was because I could not think of a last name for the life of me.
I kinda have a tendency to just take cool names I hear other places and make characters with that name. Ari was the same.

For Alisha, I was going through a Baby Names book my parents had and I checked it out since I was trying to make a new fursona. Right away, Alicia stuck. However, trying to give it an interesting/unique variation, I spelled it Alisha. It stuck like glue. I don't even remember how it stuck, but it did. xD
I've left (again), probably for good but idk. If you wanna talk to me outside the forum, feel free to email me. Just tell me who you are in the email pls

Jake is my real nickname, so I named my fursona after my nickname.

I'm a runner. I love running, it just makes me feel really good. I've gotten a few compliments on my times. Hence, the name is a synonym for fast.

For some reason I liked the name Alex, I just thought it would be cute for a fursona name. I got King from the webcomic - Housepets as he seems to be my favourite character. :P
Simple, but it took me a lot time to think of.

Sharkbait... finding nemo... 'nuff said.
Plus it's humorously ironic to be a shark named Sharkbait.

Blue bands around fursona's ears are bioluminescent -> "luminescent" "iluminate" -> Tweak the word to make it sound more like a name -> ilumina.

^ Pretty much how I came up with it :')

I've been trying to choose a new SCA (http://sca.org/links/about.html) name and Jack was on the list of possibles. It suits me pretty well so I decided to use it. When I was making my fursona I thought, "You know, I've already got multiple names so why don't I just stay with Jack for this 'sona?" That's pretty much how Jack got his name. XD

I knew I was going to be a dragon but I couldn't think of a name... About 2 days before I signed up for this site I finished reading christopher paolinis inheritance cycle(eragon series)
And decided that I would name my Fursona(scalesona) Shruikan, after king galbatorix's black dragon
