Title: How did you come up with your Character's...
Description: Name?

I think this is where this goes. There isn't really an OOC board for talking about the RP.

But how did you guys think of your names? A lot of people's don't sound either Japanese or anime-ish. And even more sound like they just mishmashed syllables and said, "This sounds pretty sweet." There's no problem with it, but I've just always wondered.

For instance-
My character Ayame:
Her first name has a double meaning. It means Iris, the the flower. But her doujutsu makes the iris of her eyes change color, so I thought it was cool.
Her last name is Kakino, meaning "of the flowers". It really wasn't too hard. I could see a character with that name in Naruto.

My second character, Rain:
His name doesn't sound like a Naruto character, but I've looked at other anime in the past and noticed there are random people with one syllable English names, like "Dice". I don't want to spoil what I'm going to do with his character, but I associated lightning with storms and rain and there you have it, the name "Rain".
And is last name, Shitakumo, means below the clouds. (Unless it should've been Shitagumo)

You see how they work? I've just seen names in the past and have been wondering why they were used, so could you guys let me know so I don't explode.

Mine came to me in a weird way. I knew my char. was gonna have a fire affinity and there's a Hindu god of fire named Agni (lol I'm a brown man, but I ain't hindu) that was a boss in Devil May Cry 3. So I changed the letters around for Agni and added in an H to fit in with all the other Hyuuga clan members.

This is going to be an epic tale! I was playing Samurai Warriors 2 and just picked a first name then a last name. Story over. Oh wait, did I say epic? I meant extremely boring and anti-climatic.

LOL, that's a pretty cool way of coming up with a name.

My Genin's name... I have no idea where it came from lol. I kind of just thought of something that sounded Japanese.

My Jounin's name obviously comes from my name, which I'm not sure what it means either :ph43r:

yours obviously means warrior squirrel

lol, i just thought Actako sounded good :blink:

i doupt many people acctually think about there names for there characters, as long as they sound "jananeseyish" (or at least, thats what i do :lol: )

Akuitora's name means "Malicious (akui) Tiger (tora)" due to her catlike aloofness with her "evil" actions.

Jani was a challenge since I did try for a japanese-ish name that wasn't normally seen. I started thinking of the name jane and romanizing it, and just came up with Jani.

Previous Naruto RPG I was on that I got kinda bored with. [well...actually, nazi of a rper kinda made me want to drop MBRPGs, but Hokori is slowly getting me back into them lol.]

Had to have a Japanese name, so I looked some up and chose Kazuma.

Originally, his last name was Saitou, but if certain things happen [Bloodline Chart getting accepted maybe], that will be changed to Hari. I guess I can still change it either way, but I'm weird like that. I dunno.

Yes. And it'd be nice if EVERYONE in my school didn't have memory problems.
-_-

I find myself reminding them all of stuff going on involving anime club and stuff similar.

Then there are the people who have problems google searching.
Its so pathetic it makes me lol.
Minus Hokori, of course. xD

damn, you guys have an Anime Club. *curses own stupid ass school for not having cool clubs*

yeah. but because the sponsor is into Marvel and all that, and the current president doesn't even do a half-ass job and wastes his life on Halo, the club got screwed over and renamed to CCA. Cards, Comics, and Anime.

The Sponsor, Mr. Boggs is cool. I don't mind the American side of animation/comics in the mix. Halo is what really ticks me off. I don't hate the game, I hate that every tournament involving a game we held had to be HALO.
I suggested SSBM, but hey, I guess nintendo isn't as close to anime as halo is.

FinalRagnarok - March 11, 2007 05:09 AM (GMT)
wow, you got screwed there dude. LOL, I'd have loved it even more since I love playin Halo

I pwn at GHII O_O. As for my name...I can't remember XD. I made Katsuma way back when before the rebirth. I remember Kurokami means Black God just out of common knowledge, but im not sure how i got Katsuma.

But wait! I just remembered! Yagami, in mythology, is a clan mentioned in some way(I can't remember) about the Hachibi. I don't feel like researching again, but the clan is in the legend.

Did I menion, that I pwn at Guitar Hero II -.-. I'm such a nerd when it comes to that game lol or any game really -.-.

FinalRagnarok - March 15, 2007 10:02 PM (GMT)
I thought you got Yagami from the last name of the main char in Deathnote
