I don’t know about you, but when I read about a furry fans persona name; it burns me up inside that some people aren’t creative enough to make up a unique name. For instance, I know a couple people who calls themselves; Foxy. Okay nice name but, to furry fan’s, that name is SO common, generic and unimaginative… it’s like yelling at a pack of zebra’s, “HEY YOU, with the Stripes! Come over here!!” People are going to be confused, frustrated, and upset that someone has their name.
Seriously people, use that mush you call a brain and come up with a name for your persona that isn’t main stream; its not hard… hell I can do it right now! Anice McNair, George Smith, Royce Miller, Hanna Cartyn, Travis Garnier, Marilyn Mullins. These name either came from people I knew or a combination of things I like, want or people who have influenced me. For example, Travis Garnier. I know of someone named Travis but, the name Garnier was ripped and twisted from Louis Garneau’s name, he’s a road racing bicyclist; who also started a sports clothing company in 1983 and is still alive today as the company’s president and founder. Lil’ history there from one of many people who have influenced me.
Making a unique name isn’t hard, all you have to do is think of the people you already know of, use the names of people who influence you, mash and twist until you find a name that stands out and goes against the flow; same thing applies to nicknames. Only a handful of people in life will have the name of an object, animal or sound (based on culture) in their name, it’s so uncommon, its taboo. Be creative with your persona’s name, NOT main stream, because going with the flow is… BORING!
