Stories behind the names of your toons?
All of my Avatars, minus my Bank alt Rainbo, are all Japanese or Chinese inspired. I took real Chinese or Japanese names and took the sound (pronunciation) and added a couple names together or created my own from the sound of the real name.
*Hengcho is 2 Chinese names of Heng and Cho.
*Mukeshi I made up, took the male Japanese name Masumi and made it my own variation.
*Rainbo because she's a Female Troll Druid and her cat form is colorful like a rainbow.
*Kotojaki combines 2 Japanese names and made my own from Kuro (koto) Jaki (Junichi).
*Chinsu takes Chinese Chen (Chin) and Ru (su) and made my own sound.
This particular character is named after a tsukemen restaurant in Hiroshima that I love that has very spicy soup, though.
One of my other main characters is named "Sasameyuki" after a favorite book of mine.
Infact, majority of the names I choose revolve around sweet things.
My druid Noxri is named after Nox who is the Greek goddess of the night. Since she is a night elf and turns into a midnight blue cat I thought it would be fitting, but it was taken. So she became Noxri, which I'm thinking I now like even more. :)
This character..I saw a can of !@#$aki mushrooms and kind of went off that.
My Hunter (Financial) = random word.
My Druid (Katybeary) = Katy Perry, harhar.
My Warlock (Heartsafire) = wanted something to do with fire.. Yea.
My Priest (Phyra) = I had that name forever on this Paladin, just kind of.. recycled it.
My Rogue (Baconie) = I like bacon?
My DK (Eatmopie) = .. self explanatory ^^
My Mage (Cakemaker) = Chef Cakemaker - wish I could get the title 'Salty' tehehe
My Shaman (Soshara) = play on a random name generator name
My Warrior (Gin) = rolled it with my boyfriend who made an HPally named Tonic
Still have some Alliance on Stormrage with a variety of lemon names, and some on KT with a variety of 'shooga' names.
So from Star Trek the Hirogen Hunters came to mind, shuffled that around a bit until I came up with Jenro.
Other characters were just random made up, Vicbita my warrior tank, liked to drink. (Victoria Bitter for you non Aussies)
Come BC I wanted the “flavour of the month” pally tank, single target tanking was very hard with the warrior the way the game was heading.
So I figured another tank, but he can take on 24 so Slabovic was born (We Aussies call a case of beer a slab, Slab of Vic Bitter) well, I liked the reference.
I had a lot of Serbian people asking me if I was Serb because of my name… lol.
I have way too many characters to list, but I'll list the characters I play most:
Cerylia (my main here) - found on a "fairy name list" somewhere on the internet. Supposedly means "sea bird" but have no idea what language or source that is from (is it fairy language? lol). I thought it was a pretty name, and the supposed bird meaning kinda went with the theme of phoenixes that blood elves have.
Serisyna (my undead and human priests) - a play off the name "Serafina." I wanted something elegant and almost princess-sounding.
Synnora (my blood elf paladin) - I originally came up with the name for my Clavat character in Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles years ago. She ended up becoming a sort of healer character (as my sister played a Liltie character who would always rush into battle), so I used the name for my Holy paladin.
Dodecahedron (my Rogue) - 12-sided polyhedron...d12 is an example
Vanquish (my Warrior) - means to defeat something
Naus (my Mage) - shortened from Nautilus
Chaosad (my Priest) - Chaos was taken
Sarcasm (my Shaman) - Yeah, sarcasm.
Enticement (my Hunter) - Entrapment was taken
Nymphetamine (my Warlock) - Cradle of Filth song, one of my all time faves.
Sumgai (my Panda Monk) - Pronounced 'some guy'. Yeah, a play on the Chinese naming conventions.
I named him Rijda (for no apparent reason) and the name has stuck with me forever since then. Most of my alts have been Rijda or variations thereof.
