lol guess

I adopted Cleo as a character, so she came with the name.
My characters really aren't that interesting.

Marble just came to my mind when making her. No specific reason, really.

Basically I was using the character Serana from Skyrim as quick thing for SCW ended up really liking going by the name(I have a thing with "S" names it seems, even my online nickname and username are normally "S" names .o.) so decided to name my new vampiric cougar sona Serana, always liked the name Serena anyway so it just feels right ^^

Pixel is actually my 'sonas nickname.
Her true name is Kiku Syresi. Kiku (meaning chrysanthemum) was the name she came with when I got her and, although I did not personally want to always use it for her, kept it as I found it super cute.
Her surname, Syresi, was chosen not for any particular meaning it has but moreso because I love elvish/fantasy things and it sounded like an elvish/fantasy name to me.
Pixel, her most commonly used name, also her nickname, was actually chosen even before I got her.
I have seen some characters with art related names (Scribbles, Stylus, and Doodle to name a few) and sort of fell in love with the idea of art words as 'sona names. This began the process of coming up with her name. I ended up settling on Pixel for two reasons, I just love how it sounds as a name, and although I am terrible at making it, I love pixel art.

Gaz is my only fursona who's name has no meaning behind it. It's just something I thought sounded good and once I had the design down it stuck.

Foxi's name came from my nickname at the time, which was, you guessed it, Foxi. It was originally just a placeholder till I gave her a real name, but it kind of just stuck.

Katsuro's is one I looked up when searching Japanese names and liked. I thought it suited him.

Karasu's I chose because it's a really pretty word Imo, and it suited her. It's Japanese for raven, my favorite bird.

Lyric's is because I wanted something music-related for her.

Kyro's I kinda just threw together one night. I've always pronounced it "Kie-ro", but I honestly don't care if people say "Keer-o". Whatever you prefer, I can't decide on a pronunciation xD

Jamison was actually named by Bluefox in an RP xD
I just stuck with it, since it suited him.

Lemon Meringue just reminded me of lemon meringue pie somehow.

I liked the name Harlow better than her previous name (Starling). Her last name, Jackson, references a Panic! At The Disco song, but I might change it to Flack in reference to a Fall Out Boy song.

If I don't reply to you or take a very long time to do so, don't take it personally! I'm bad with words and people and socializing, so, uh, I don't really talk much when I don't feel like I need to. I'm really sorry!
