Now where did Keldo's name come from... Jeesh, I created him so long ago I have no idea. Maybe I should give him a little makeover...

I used greek prefixes: lycos for wolf, xeno for foreign (makes sense to me, won't to you), thiríos for beast, and mashed them together plus added a few letters for various reasons to get tXenolykthrius, or tXen.

Wanted it to be really unusual and also wanted to specify that it's NOT pronounced texan (I have no affiliation with Texas :P)...it's basically Zen with a slight clicking of the tongue before the z, but I also go by just Zen for simplicity.
There IS a way...there is always a way...I just haven't thought of it yet...

Honestly, Koyu is the name I once used for an old RP character.  My friend was the one who came up with this name for me because it means 'dark' in Turkish (according to Google translate that is). I decided against using this name for my fursona for quite a while because the RP character mentioned earlier was very gloomy and that's all I could associate the name with. I used it off and on and also tried different names, but no other seemed to fit. After having used Koyu for many months of RP I guess I had grown attached to the name so I decided to stick with it.  :fox-:P:

It sounds like my real name. Only fancier. :]

Also it has the same meaning - light.

I've talked about Solstice and Skyline in previous posts but don't think I've talked about Faye or Harmony.
Faye was a Fae themed Angel dragon and I've always loved the name Faye so it just fit perfectly :fox-:): for harmony I looked through a list of baby names and saw Harmony and just though it fit her well :fox-:):

Hmmm... Actually my fursona name isnt that creative. I was thinking about a name for me and my fursona - I was even using anime name generator to inspire myself  :shock: (this is so embarassing)

And after using that generator I found out that for some reason names starting with E sounded good. Then I tried combining my real name in some way and well... There we have Eriadam!  :lol-fox:

Kage + Kitsune= Kagitsun

Really creative of me, especially since a shiny umbreon has nothing to do with a kitsune. Ironic that I have a kitsune named Kage which he also bears no relation to.

For his last name, Seishin, it directly translates to spirit.

Aeros-
I got the idea for that name because i really like wind breezes. Aero means wind. The S is just another letter i added on.

Fang-
At the time, i was really into punk. And i figured that Fang was a kind of punk name. (still kinda into it)

Razz
- One word: pokemon. In the games there is an item called a "Razz Berry". It is a very nice shade of red. And i guess it kinda sprang from there.

Xithuriel-
Intended to be a seraphic name. One of my favorite game characters is a seraph. (kinda) And at the time, i was obsessed with him, as well. And of course i had to have my own angelic being. I consider this one a furry/human hybrid. About 50% each.

That's my story.

Farron- FFXIII is one of my favorite games and Lightning is my second favorite character in the game( my fav character is Fang).
Farron ended up looking kinda like Lightning when I was drawing her, so I kinda modeled her off of her. I suck with names and didn't want to name her Lightning or Clair, so I used her last name Farron.

He was the Archbishop of Canterbury in England during the 12th century (until he was beaten to death at the alter).
