I've done this many times before and figured it was time for it once again. Let's talk about naming characters. Whether we play video game RPGs, tabletop RPGs, or whatnot, we are often tasked with naming characters. Often many of us stick with the default name of a main character and not name it, but what if it's a blank slate?
For me, I always prefer to use a female character than a male, so if her name is blank, I usually name her Cresta as a play off my username, kinda like how I'd name a character Deza as a play on my old username Blademaster Dezo. Of course, if it's a game like Megami Tensei that takes place in modern day Japan, I name her Sayori, because that's my favorite Japanese girl's name.
If it's a male character... in any given Megami Tensei game (or game where my main is a Japanese teenager), I name him Yuuya Narumi because that was the main characters name in the Persona 1 drama CD. It's accepted that it's Naoya Toumou in some P1 comic, but Yuuya Narumi is more obscure. I don't really have a go-to when naming a more traditional fantasy male character. Sometimes I'll just use my name, but I'll often make up something random.
Oh, there are those moments when you rename characters the second time around to make funny lines. Like who didn't want to rename Amarant to something filthy when he says, "Some call me The Flaming Amarant."
So, yeah, let's talk about naming our characters .
