I combined some popular Czech names, and the name Daniel Dvorak was born.

I got a new sona so I guess it's time for a new post :fox-:P:

After I adopted my deer character I was looking through baby name lists for ideas and saw the name Addison, it just kinda clicked especially since Addison is the name of one of my favourite characters from Grey's Anatomy so I decided to name my deer character Addison

Razer just kinda popped into my head, and Len is - in a way - a variation of my real name.

My fursona's name is actually an Icelandic word for calm. I love the Icelandic language and Iceland in general, so I chose that I guess XD

:lol-fox: That's pretty funny.

I named my 'sona Vladislav for a few reasons. I'd already previously used Vlad a little bit as a pseudonym, I have a bit of a thing for names starting with V (probably because my IRL name is Valentine), and the Vladislav part is because it is Czech as opposed to the more Russian Vladimir. I have some significant Czech and Slovak ancestry, with little to no Russian to my knowledge. Also it's a good name that isn't in wide use anymore and is almost always shortened in daily use, much like my own. It felt like it fit.

I looked up satanic related names
Zagan literally means
Zagan  is a Great King and President of Hell, commanding over thirty-three legions of demons. He makes men witty; he can also turn wine into water, water into wine, and blood into wine (according to Pseudomonarchia Daemonum blood into oil, oil into blood, and a fool into a wise man). Other of his powers is that of turning metals into coins that are made with that metal (i.e., gold into a gold coin, copper into a copper coin, etc.).

I know I posted here already and of my current sona but I got a couple more(and can't remember exactly what I said since its a couple pages behind X3)

Nagi - Name of character I played in a game awhile ago, who has also been my fictotype for a few years so is a name I wish I had.
Lorii - Variation of my real name, with an added "I" since I used her for species change week and somebody was already using the name Lori. (Funny she's based off of my Skyrim character who I named Nagi XD but now switching her up a little to look like my breton who I named Lorii ^^)
Spider - Nickname I started going by, also named her that since she was originally suppose to be based off of tarantulas.
Sophia - Not official yet but it's what I'm leaning too the most. Don't know how much I might like going by that name but its always been a one of favorite names <3 def my first choice if I ever had a daughter tbh.

Neither of my sonas names have any kind of meaning behind them. I just chose Sugar and Benny cause it sounded cute and fitting, lol. I'm still trying to decide what Benny should be short for, though. Benjamin? Benedict? I dunno.
Also, Sugar used to be named Daisy.

After adopting my red panda I once again looked at baby name websites and I saw Laila, I thought it was cute so that's what I decided to name her. I need to get more creative with my names, my three newest sonas were all named using baby name sites

I was messing around with anagrams one day, and discovered that my RL name anagrams into "Atheltrane Brant". Although Atheltrane is not a real name, it is very similar to Athelstane, so I decided to roll with it. A long time after I made this discovery, I created my fursona and gave it this name. And thus, the great warrior otter Atheltrane Brant was born!

Well, my fursona's name is Hudson Swiftsure, I decided that I wanted a historical figures name to be my fursona's first name, because i'm big into history. I decide on Henry Hudson, and I picked out Hudson to be my fursona's first name. I decided that his last name should be named after a geographical place, so after doing some more research, I found out about the "Swiftsure Passage" near the mouth of the Strait of Juan de Fuca in Washington state. After some deliberation, I decided that "Hudson Swiftsure" would be my fursona's name.

Actually, now that you mention it, my sona is named after King George lll-I love history as well, and all my other fursonas/adopts seem to resemble history or common mythology in some way

I have 2 sonas, Flare and James.  I chose Flare because my main sona uses fire and Flare is not a name that is used much.  I chose James for my second sona because it is my middle name as well as my nickname at school. :fox-:):

I named my Manokit Athena because that's what her previous owner has named her. Also my first Betta fish was named Athena and since manokits are ocean related I though the name was perfect

I choose Dyno, because I wanted something cute, but it also had to be cool. Dyno reminds me of Dynamite, but it reminds most if Dinosaurs. Either works I guess

I could have sworn I posted here, but apparently not. So here goes!

I'd already settled on Batzantium. It might be unoriginal to put your species in your name, but I liked the way it rolled. It's based on Byzantium, from Yeat's poem "Sailing to Byzantium." I had analyzed the poem in my Junior year of highschool. It was a very existential poem, essentially discussing how youth is pointless, but the arts are the gateway to immortality of the soul. Bit pretentious, but it stuck with me since I have an irrational fear of aging.

But I didn't like Batzantium on it's own. At first, I was looking for surnames, when "Setta" struck me. The name was used in a roleplay (based on Project Freelancers of Red vs Blue) and I had a character named Agent Massachusetts, nickname Setta. It's similar to Stella, a common name for female bats, so it feels right without being overdone.
