Sometimes I find names by looking up the name of the species, or some related word, on Wiktionary, and looking through the translations in other languages. For example, my deer character Fia is named after the Irish word for deer. Unfortunately, that won't work in this case. I just checked, and it looks like every language uses some slight variation on kangaroo.  :/

Sometimes I look at the character's color scheme for inspiration. Her pink hair makes me think of names like Ruby and Rosy. Or maybe Sapphire for her blue eyes.

I usually find fitting names by checking what kind of name I'm looking for for said character. Feminine names, androginous names? One that fits her personaily? Are you looking for a common English name, or are you looking for something more "exotic"? Just a few of the questions I ask myself. I usually have trouble coming up with names on the fly, but it helps to have these questions as guidelines.

Lmao I have a goat named Josaphyne

To Michen_S, I don't have any ideas off the top of my head, but the way I choose names is taking inspiration from things around me or things I enjoy. For example, if you're a Pokémon fan, names like Misty, Lorelei, Hilda etc. may come to mind. Or even the creators of the franchises you enjoy, I have a Girafarig named Masuda lol.

Best of luck!  <3

I usually come up with the name first, but... I like silly names. Food names, some variant

Rotisserie, Omicron, Applery, Poplar, Confetti, Canonita, Chewtra, Legsly, Paddy... just throwing some out there.

I would like some help coming up with a name. I am very new to this but not very creative. I want something unique, similar to my personality. I am pessimistic, shy, introverted, and timid. Any help and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
