How'd you get your name?

Post  Tallya on Thu Jul 30, 2009 4:52 pm

Hello Hikari!

Idea The question of the day is - how'd you come up with your character name(s)?

queen My main character is Tallya (human). I got that name from my first Dungeons and Dragons character, Talia, and I got that from the actress Talia Shire, who I like. I couldn't spell the name with an "i" cause it was taken. My D&D character was a cleric/magic user so I focused Tallya on magic.

farao Jelika Khan was a human D&D fighter and I got that name right out of another game book. So I make Jelika a giant and focused on fighting.

jocolor Hyacynth was one of my many thief characters - she was a halfling (originally spelled just like the flower) but there's no halflings in Mabinogi. So Hyacynth gets to be an elf in Mabinogi and is focued on archery.

What about you Question

heh, well, i made the name soulcurve in this other game, astrowars, which is a text based strategy game. i wanted a new name, saw the closest object was my cologne- soul, by curve, and put it together into "soulcurve". thought it worked out pretty well. my elf i named after a band, "seawolf". and my giant "stobofi" i got by taking the first couple letters from the three words on a box in my room. can't remember what the box originally said, but i thought "stobofi" was giant-ish enough for my needs.
this was fun!

Lol a transformer. Nice. Well I took the first two letters of my first name (Ja) and the first two letters of my last name (Mc) and put it together and made Jmac! or J is the first letter and Mac is a shortened version of my last name.

Kamau (Human): african kenyan name meaning "quiet warrior" (i found it on a website)
Barasa (Human): african luyia name meaning "born on Saturday" (same website and i was losing patience)
Eske (Giant): the name of a skill from ragnarok online.
Kaahi (Elf): another name for a skill from ragnarok online. even though they are skill names, they sound pretty cool.

I got my alt's name Lygatto from a manga named Break Blade.

Emaos...was random.

Betakyros my elf is a tribute to my maple char which my friend and I made. He made the name.

My horses are named after famous race horses, Smarty Jones and Seabiscuit.

My wolf and crow are just variations of wolf and crow in different languages.

My dog is a japanese phrase.

My bird is named after a anti-aircraft unit in Starcraft.

My bear, being a polar bear, is appropiately named after the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.

My giant is also named after a character in Break Blade, Shigwen.

i forgot about pet names!

my bear, strkx, is just a random bunch of consonants i thought looked kinda cool.
my spider, cleaverbug, was just brain vomit after all my original choices were taken.
my ostrich, ozzybukowski, is named after the author charles bukowski + ozzy short for ostrich?
my falcon, okkerville, i named after a band - okkervil river. added "le" to make it more of a name.

P.S. A lot of names are badly translated Chinese.. so please forgive me and don't quote my Chinese pingying hehe

Aachoo(Human): I created my account with my girlfriend, and we wanted something that we could be recognized as, and so I came up with Aachoo, Echoo and Cachoo and that's how we got our names.
Tienzu(Human): It means heavenly judgment, or heaven kills in Chinese.
Feixue(Elf): It means Flying Snow or Flying Blood in Chinese.
Lolliipop(horse): uhh sexual connotation.. my gf and I was joking about it.. and it just kinda.. any ways yea..
Mrumbrella(falcon): kinda goes along with lolliipop... don't ask.. Emaos might understand.. not sure
Taoyuan(Siamese): In an old Chinese legend, there was a place called Tao Yuan which means Field of Cherry Blossoms or something like that, which symbolizes paradise. I created the cat with the thoughts that that was how it felt when I play mabi with my girlfriend.
Xiadaidai(Red Panda): Knowing that the red panda can grow really big, I thought I'd name it something of the exact opposite. So the name means "little dumdum" in Chinese.
Yunghen(Black hamster): Its only part of a phrase. The whole phrase is Ai Ze Yung Hen, which is spelt wrong.. but any ways. The phrase means, love, forever.
Tianshing(White un-flyable chicken...): It means sky heart in Chinese, or heaven hearts.

My Name was suppose to be Kero. But it was taken. So I put Beo cause it sounds cute. My name is named after a small lion in Card Captor Sakura.
