What is in a name? Well, to me it is the thought and what the name represents. Let’s take a look at some of my character names. I have Rosemarylee, Jadedhearts, Kuroma, Saunter, Terrastella, Mizorie, Kittyrose, and Tookiebird.
Rosemarylee, that name comes from an ex-supervisor of mine. Her name is Rosemary. For some unknown reason, I thought Rosemarylee would be a perfect way of remembering the time I worked for Rosemary.
Jadedhearts, what can I say about this name. I can only say I was very upset at my ex-boyfriend and created a character that is basically a jaded heart character to remind me that love is never lasting at times.
Kuroma, my all time favorite anime character is named Kurama. I wanted a female version of the name so I went with Kuroma instead of Kurama.
Saunter got his name from the way I thought humans in game looked like when they walked. I thought they were just sauntering about. Easy enough for his name.
Terrastella is earth star in Italian. I wanted a nice Italian name and found this one. It is rememorable to people and I don’t mind that at all.
Mizorie, can also be pronounced Misery as well. Was feeling miserable and was watching an anime with a character by that name. Different spelling of course.
Kittyrose, that name is also easy to explain. I like cats as my favorite animal and my favorite flower is actually roses. Just do not think for one moment that Kittyrose is a druid though. Kittyrose is a priest. I get enough grief from random groups about the name and class.
Tookiebird, I may or may not be correct in remembering where I heard this name. I swear it is from a movie called George of the Jungle but I may be wrong. It has been years since I saw the movie at all.
All in all, each of my character names do mean something to me. It can be just something funny, to remember a person or feeling, or even just because I wanted a name in a different language.
What character name do you have that means something to you or do you just use a random name from the random generator?
