Been wanting to change my fursona’s name for a while, but I’m rather unsure about it and the process to find one that sticks. As the title asks, have you ever changed a name before? What do you consider when naming a character?
Thats some really good insight!I believe it's best not to overthink it, the more natural it feels when you're being referred to is personally what I think is best. Mine sona's name, Cain, has no actual meaning, just whatever felt natural to me to hear.
The more natural it feels to you the less of a chance you'll question your name and change it again (not that there's anything wrong with that)
When you hear your name you want to subconsciously feel, "hey yeah, that's me."
If a name feels wrong or just, off, try something different that just feels... Right.
When I was naming my sona I was either going to go with Tobias(Toby) or Kaleb.
Looking at them now the thought of someone referring to me as Toby just feels, off.
Thats some really good insight!
Tacoma felt fine to me at first, but now It’s starting to feel unnatural and off.
(Yeah, I’m aware :/ (should’ve considered the name mightve not stuck forever when I initally created the account)) (Staying on this account tho)I also got, bad news unfortunately.
If you do plan to change your name you may want to create a new account because I believe that you're unable to change your username (anyone correct me if I'm wrong) So it's always going to be TacomaTheDeer

Yeah, who knows? I’ll stick to this name unless one hits my face that I really like.Ah, well if you settle on a name you can just put in the little subscript that goes underneath the username "call me ____."

Maybe it’s like those times when you think of a word for too long, and it seems really weird
(Anyone else do that?)
I’ve decided to keep the name, but changing my username to be more widefitting sounds like a great idea.I’ve completely changed sonas before. It’s why i just use the same username on everything instead of a character name. And honestly LV is feeling less and less like a sona, I just still like their art representing me.
But for you, you could always have Tacoma being your sonas surname. It’s a name people use all the time to be polite, but his given name is whatever you come up with.
