I used to have a fursona named after my real name, but after I came out of the closet I decided to remake them to fit my new identity. Hyacinth is from Hyacinthus, who's one of Apollo's lovers in classical mythology, and I chose it because it's pretty and gay mythology is cool.

I just liked the name Keiko, which is from the whale that was in free willie.  :D

Varlen Thuban. I made mine up. I think.

Varlen = made up.
Thuban = something to do with the north star, I forget.

I looked at my character's fur color, and thought it looked a lot like Whiskey.

Yeah, not the most exciting way to name a character.

I got my fursona name from the book The Great Gatsby. The name Jay Gatsby inspired an idea, so I came up with Gatsby J Husky and it stuck.

I recently adopted my namesake in the fandom from my newest Barasingha (Swamp deer) character, which I'm using to represent myself in a similar way to Gage, my first character. Daimhín literally means "little stag" in Gaelic. Asides from the fact that I've always been fond of Celtic culture, the name sounds pretty cool and fitting for a deer -- my character particularly.

Barasingha aren't really a small species of deer. But I have conjured this mythos and backstory for the character involving him being among the last of his kind, and having to live among a Red deer herd, of which typically dwarf him in comparison, causing him to be alienated and rejected by his peers because he's so different. It's a story which resonates with me personally. Plus I'm already getting a lot of cutesy chibi/babyfur artwork of the character.

The reason I've decided to change my name is because I got tired of being referred to as Gage. I've contributed to the fandom for nearly four years now and I really wanted something different. As much as I like the character that I created, I sought something newer and catchier which I could relate to.

Darkflame came to me when I woke up one morning.  Wolfenstein is just part of my youtube name.  I prefer to just be called by Darkflame, but, meh.

I have always thought of myself as quiet, still, unseen, and perhaps also avoided (which was usually either my fault or not something I cared about). A fandom of fantasy, and a love for the night and its predators probably did not help, but if I am to be a trickster, then a shadow I shall also be, a shadow in the night, unseen unheard, darkness hiding in the dark. So I named myself Shadow . . . literally.

I took my name and reversed it, and I liked the way it sounded. It reminded me of a renaissance-era name, and that fit my species. But it didn't fit right. I changed it around to Rokuno, and my friend suggested Serani as a last name. It was perfect.

I wanted my fursona to have the same name as me on the internet: LabyrinthMaster.
And why such a name, some have already figured it out:

Have fun :)

Mashed on my keyboard a little bit and "obvfoag" showed up on the input box. Played around with a few of the letters before I got Uvoa. I also go by Shirunzu in some places because I'm too lazy to change my username, which is the result of a name generator I can't seem to find anymore.

I've always loved the solstices and found the word solstice very pretty, plus my character has a crescent moon on her back (a symbol that I always associate with the winter solstice) and her furs purple and white (a colour combination that I also associate with the winter solstice) and her birthday's on the winter solstice so the name Solstice was just perfect

When i was younger i always used 'damos' as a name in games and such,  but when i needed to use it for account names it was too short i added the 'e' and it became 'daemos'

Mine involves a little bit of dishonesty.  :oops:
On Omegle, which is where I was referred to FurryTeens, whenever a stranger asked for a name, I never wanted to use my real name. On the site, it's almost required for you to have a kik messenger account... I again didn't want to use my real name and so I used a bland, common name "Max". It stuck, and so I used it whenever I used Omegle. When it came down to making myself a fursona, I decided I wanted, again, to be called "Max". I didn't want it to be that plain, so I used the name, "Maximus", so I could be called "Max" for short. And so, that is how I became Maximus.
