Mostly everyone who knows me knows that my name changes pretty much weekly. Winnie is always a component, but anything else is completely up for grabs.
How do we come up with our names? Especially if we were “born” after SL made us take one of their last names? My first avatar was a Barbosa 🙂
My own name is after one of my beloved pups. Yep…there it is. I love really fun SL names that were determined by people far more creative than I was on that first day. I must have read Maar Volous about a hundred times before I put that one together *facepalms*.
Did you take inspiration from the world around you? Did you use a creative version of your RL name? Did you give yourself the name you wished your parents had instead of Eunice? Did you change your last name after you met a partner?
What was the thing that made that name click? Do you wish you could change the whole name instead of just your display name?
At this point, I have so much fun with my name that my friends vote on favorite iterations and what they think the next one should be. Truth be told…I’m pretty sure that Winniebago and FrankenWinnie will always be my faves 🙂
