I've already posted here with how Mango and maybe Sparrow got their names (reading my old posts makes me cringe lmao ill just assume thats who I explained) but my fursona Tori got their name through my nickname! All my friends just call me bird so I called them the Japanese word for bird, tori. Its a pretty neutral sounding name and can also be a real name, i know a girl called tori (but you pronounce it like Tory, which is also a boys name !!)
Their last name is kojika because it means little deer or deer child, literally 'fawn', which is my real name! uwu

Sprinkles was a nickname from middle school from this girl who lived on the same hill that I did. I also just like the concept of Iridescent things.

By your powers combined, I am Iridescent Sprinkles!

On a side note, it's really funny to hear people tell me that they expect me to sound like a stereotypical gay man when I get into calls for the first time, because that's not at all what I sound like x3

Rubies are red gems. Hence, cardinals are red. There ya' go my bro's and sis's, the very short history of the name Ruby. Then the, "C.",. It stands for Cardinal. My fursona's full name is Ruby Cardinal. :)

Haven't I already posted in this thread? Aw heck, I'll post again.

Um... I'm not sure to be honest. Vincent just kind of came to me. I think the bear in Dreamwork's Over The Hedge was named Vincent or something. Well, I wouldn't be surprised if that's where I got it from because I've probably watched that movie 4,000 times since it came out.

I chose the name because I was looking up dog names (I don't know why) and I found Bubbles.
I also wanted to choose something that would match my fursona's character.

For Levira, I was looking around on the interwebs for names that meant lightning, since my fursona's theme is lightning (hell, her design was inspired by the San Diego Chargers logo). I found Levira, which means "flash of lightning" and it instantly stuck. I picked a last name, Blitzkrieg, meaning, "lightning war."

So yeah, my fursona's name is Levira Blitzkrieg.

I chose Cuddleson because I was watching Fresh Prince of Bel Air and one of the character's name is Carlson. So I really liked the name Carlson and realized my fursona loves cuddling, so I mixed cuddle with Carlson and got Cuddleson.

I chose Domus Vocis for two reasons.
1) I wanted a name that felt.....mystical and unique.
2) Domus Vocis means 'home's voice' in Latin, and because I'm an environmentalist, it make's sense.
I consider myself a lone wolf, but I don't mind a friend or two to talk with. I also happen to be a writer.

Fairly straightforward, my fursona is a snowfox. So snow seemed a pretty logical connection.

I also have a pony-sona called blink. Named for wanting to see as much of the world as possible.

I like short and simple names.

Snow Yuki- I picked snow cause I like snow, Yuki cause I like Japanese stuff(not just anime) and was looking for names that mean snow so Yuki. I liked both names so im using both^^ High chance of change though :blush-fox:

Cassandra- My hyena sona reminded me of the character Cassandra from the SoulCalibur series while I was working on her, and she is also one of my main characters and was playing her alot at the time so I named her Cassandra and it just stuck. Also its cas-sahn-dra like in the game not cas-san-dra

Alexandra- not a first name but a last name for my main sonas. Alexandra is the last name of the majority of the characters I use in the SoulCalibur series, I label myself as Alexandra family user so it feels right to name them that^^ Also I like giving my sonas sword and shield combo

First, I tried to come up with a meaningful name that sounded cool. I couldn't come up with anything, even with the help of google translate. I decided to just try and find a name I liked and not care about meaning or significance. So I google searched "male cat names" and found this website that had a list of what must have been a couple thousand. On the list I found "Aiko", and switched the i and k to make Akio. At first I was worried I'd end up changing it in a day or so, but I've actually grown quite fond of the name, and would now never dream of changing it.

So yeah there's my story behind my fursona's name.
Feel free to PM me or message me on Skype. I like to talk, and as long as I'm not busy I'm happy to chat anytime :lol-fox:

Wynter is obviously word play on Winter.
It was last Winter that especially made the name. I'd tell more about that but I'll save that for my own post.

A while back a friend and I tried out a game called Spiral Knights, mostly to get the TF2 hat but then we discovered how awesome the game itself was. I met a guy named Giik and I once mispronounced his name "Jiik".

I thought Jiik was a cool name.

Yeah where the heck did Aerobolt come from? Well, my fursona has a more unique way of coming into being. I remember the day I created him so well... October 20, 2011. Long before I was even introduced to the fandom! At first he was supposed to be the main character of a book I planned to write. And he became so much more as time went on. The name Aero came from my love and fascination towards the wind. Living in Wyoming, you'll be experiencing tons of it! As for Bolt... you know... I am not sure where that came from! I dunno what I was thinking, it just happened... My best guess... is how much I liked thunderstorms... or maybe it was the movie "Bolt" that inspired it... I may never know for sure...

Bianca has always been the name I wanted and imparis means brave in swahili I think.
