I don't really remember how I came up with Kasix... I just remember I thought of it in 6th grade before I was even a furry... But when I did I knew it was a perfect cool name ^.^

I have two fursona's the one I use in my every day life is cadet, I chose the name because say I can be in charge of alot most of the time I am very loyal and very fast that is how I came up with her. My other fursona is duke he is a demon wolf, I chose his name because when I really want to, I can be a very vicious person if in trouble anyway just like a demon I can also have a dark side.   :fox-;):

AND THAT IS HOW I CHOSE MY FURSONA NAME(S) MKAY BYE!

My fursona's name is the combination of my favorite color (Cyan) and the German word for my favorite type elemental magic (lightning or electricity). It was originally the name of my pony OC but, when I got rid of it I used the name for my fursona.

I've long since updated my character's name. My Fallow deer character was originally Gage because it was once an adopted nickname of mine. I based it off of the name of a Halo character within a related short story. With that name established, I decided to expand it to Timothy Gage Freelancer because it supposedly reflected my fursona's free spirit. But I decided I didn't like the sound of that and went through many revisions until I simply left it as Gage for years to come.

Only within the last year have I decided to make the addition of a surname for my fursona. I wanted something that gave him a deeper, more profound and more memorable name. I decided to look deeply at the name, and see what it stood for since it had just become everyone knew me as in the furry community. The name has English roots and describes proficiency in skill at maths and/or measurement.

Acknowledging this, I wanted to expand that into something that tangibly related to what my character stands for. I thought of the name "Natura", as well as how that means nature in language such as Latin and Spanish, I found this pretty relevant to my character and quite catchy. He would be known as Gage Natura -- or "Measures Nature." It represents my characters love for both the natural world and the means of uncovering truths about it through science and maths.

Looking back on it, my fursona's naming has been quite a complicated process. lol

I signed up for an MMORPG called pocket legends, and it had a random name generator.  The name that popped up was "Trieniloz".

Some time later, I decided I wanted to use it for one of my characters.  So I decided to give it to the cat OC I had basically started with from the beginning.

Fun fact: If you search Trieniloz on google the only things that will pop up are my art, webcomic, and furry teens profile.  So I officially own that name now.  :fox-:P:

It kind of came to me in a dream (cue cheesey music)
Aika is a Japanese girls name whick apparently means "Love song" which is coincidentally my favourite song sung by The Cure.
So it stuck.

My fursona's name is based off of a character from Kelly Armstrong's women of the underworld series. Her name is Eve Lavine, she reminded me a lot about myself and she was a strong female character I adored. So there we go.

I just couldn't get Jason out my head after having played Far Cry 3. I found the name really awesome, and gave it to a character of my story, then changed it to Jaze for my fursona. His full name is Jaze Craig.

I just went to Google translate and kept typing in words that I thought represent myself. I then translated these into Latin to get a first and last name. I just kept trying until I found one that both represented me and sounded decent. I'm still not sure whether I will be keeping this one or not, but i ended up with Lupum Fidelique. Supposed to mean wolf of loyalty or something along those lines.

When I was in 3rd or so grade I had to make a story for my class.  So long before I had a clue what a fury was I made 3 characters named Skipnoo (A fast dragon dude), Dracknoo (A big dragon dude), and Idk.  But basically whenever I played games I called my fast characters Skipnoo.  So there fast because they skip so why not use Skipper?

 Bones I just remembered is my current fursona so guess how I thought that up?  :DD

Leepyr

I began my love of lemurs somewhere three to four years ago.

Le

I also love fire and am a fire sign
Pyro

Lepyro

However that would be pronounced "lep-eye-row"
So take off the o and add an e

Leepyr
Originally pronounced "Lee-pire"
Then "Lee-peer"
But by now everyone can call it leaper
I'm the random lemur girl.

Named him after the River Somme, in France, because:
1. France is one of my favorite countries.
2. It was a nice name.
3. Its water and penguins like water  :fox-:P:

Not yet, sadly :sad-fox:
But I've always had an interest in France, and its one of the places I'm planning to visit sometime in the future. The places there look so lovely, they've got wonderful cuisine and culture, and from what people have told me, it's a great place.

For my new fursona (that I've changed about 100 times), Layce is my nickname. I know it's kinda a cardinal sin to name an OC after yourself, but Layce just stuck, and I couldn't help but use it.
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
