Lolhey. Tara Ravi-Fernandez here. I've just added a second lot of the 'Etymology' section. The first was on Misty's article, and the one I just did was on Holly's. It's cool to add Etymology to articles because it seems professional. If the question may ever pop up, for example if someone says I copy my names off of Harry Potter (I dunno, Drake = Draco?) or Victorious (I swear it's a coincidence that I have Rex, Jayde, and Andre. Rex was suggested as a LAST NAME by a friend; Jayde was used because I wanted a tough, rock-hard {get it?} name in one syllable; and Andre is just a cool name that also happens to be my uncle's name). Here's how I get the names for my characters:

FIRST NAMES

FEMALE

15% - My friends suggest a name, and I like it.

10% - My friends suggest a name, and I like a variation of it.

35% - My friends want a character so I let them choose (either their name or their favourite name). (e.g. Danni and Tiger)

1% - It's what I want to name my daughter (i.e. Mya)

39% - I can make epic names anyway.

MALE

5% - My friends suggest a name, and I like it.

5% - My friends suggest a name, and I like a variation of it. (e.g. Rex)

15% - My friends want a character so I let them choose (either their name or their favourite name). (e.g. Corbin)

75% - British baby name websites. They're full of badass names! (e.g. Tristan, Adrian, Drake, Collin)

MIDDLE NAMES

FEMALE

5% - My friends suggest a name, and I like it.

1% - Hebrew baby name websites (i.e. Adinah).

5% - My friends want a character so I let them choose (either their name or their favourite name).

2% - It's my second favourite name EVAR. (i.e. Brielle)

63% - Random names.

20% - Screw dat. Middle names don't matter.

MALE

5% - My friends suggest a name, and I like it.

5% My friends want a character so I let them choose (either their name or their favourite name).

20% - No middle name.

20% - Random names.

50% - British baby names are AWESOME.

LAST NAMES

Don't make me go into detail about last names. They come easily. I pick the Dwelling and... no worries.


So... The Rules?

So, the rules for Etymology are these:

-Put it as far down on the article as you can. Say little or nothing about the last name. Animal last names should be in the 'Animal' section, but regular last names are allgoods I guess.

-You gotta have a source from a baby names website. Don't care what for.

-Two or more sources from websites. Can be dictionary.com, or anything. More sources = more liability.


That's it. Have fun!
