Single and lonely
My Fox sona's name, Kit Sly, came from the fact that foxes are generally sly and cunning, while their babies are refered to as Kit's.

My Komodo Dragon/Blue Iguana scalesona's name, Ziel Zorix, came from a long debunked fantasy series I was writing.


The Autistic Otter
I used my own name but also thought of naming him Ryo or Leo.

Mine isn't that hard XD The name of my fursona is Kemo, it comes from the japanese word of beast Kemono but I find it kinda meaningful for me idk


Prodigiously Fit Foxy
I was inclined to name my cast of characters after Mediterranean tongues, because I was intrigued by the cultures to this very day. For instance, the leopard devil "Eirenes" is Greek for "Peaceful, Amiable", as mythology dictates' ones' destiny forever, thus he is a peacemaker. Inheriting Sitri the love devil's virtues, he walks in the footsteps of his father even if he changes psychologically little by little. I use him in stories to teach people about the traditions of a gentleman before it become a movement thousands of years later.

It can me Mr.phox or Jerrin Phox.

Well Mr.Phox because Mr.Fox is someone else and I did not want to be confuse with him ^^ So I use Phox (like Delphox) from Pokémon ^^

Jerrin is a young fox from a furry comics call "Wild Frontier" wild-frontier.com: Wild Frontier: Home

So Jerrin Phox is my fursona name ^^

The adoptable was labeled as a "terrorbird" by the artist and "toucan" in the picture. After adopting him and paying for a ref sheet, I cropped out the head to use as an avatar but for some reason it kept giving me errors. Saved it as "Touca" first, but kept saving it as different filenames which at the time were gibberish (toucaleen, toucapeen, toucateen). Finally when it came time to name him I switched it "tuca" and "keen", since that was the first file that saved and uploaded successfully.


Haters Gonna Hate
Many years before I even knew what furry was, I made my dragon and for a while it was nameless. I found a language translator and after screwing around for hours I found the Egyptian word for Thunderstorms, Al' De'Natch and it's dropped down to Aldinatch. :3
