Do you wonder about the meaning of the character names and if there is significance to the specific characters in their names?
Addis: It’s why I try to add notes for names
Rara: For my culture name meaning is very important, my real name can mean beauty….I guess my parents named me wrong
Yun: Generally speaking cuz it’s character by character based, which character you use means a lot. After all you can have multiple characters for the same sound. People for Chinese usually spend a lot of time coming up with meaning behind names
Rara: My sis is marrying a singaporean chinese. There was a talk abt what name should they name their child, that can be use as english name and chinese name in a clever (puny) way
Gaeatiamat: I know when I write my stories, I take a long time to pick names, and I look at the meanings, then say them out loud and other things to make sure they fit right. Of course I also make it easy on myself by trying to find names that would work for two 13th Century lowland Scottish characters. And one of them reincarnates 10 times into the future so what name would he pick for himself then? Just cause I’m insane.
