I've been writing ToP: ATP for years now, and well dagit, I can't settle on a name. At first it was Jacob [Shogun] *coughmyfirstnamecough* then it went to Kaoru Kaido, then Kunimitsu Tezuka *shootsselffornooriginality* and right now it is at Daichi Usagi.

I diffently need some help settling on a name for XXX becsause I'm well into chapter six and after I finish chapter eight I'm gonna go and do a small face-lift, and I'd really like to have a solid name, it does not have to be Japanese, in fact I almost prefer an Ameircan or English name...

Daniel Longhare, Jack Peterson, Tom Westpeak, etc.

Names don't matter. Just pick a normal name and for the last name it is usually location, occupation or appearance words.

Take the names of someone you know. That's what I do-- every character I come up with is a mixture of my friends' and relatives' names.

Or, you can go to this site (http://www.babynames.com) and find a name that suits you.

Javen Ritsuko.

D: I dunno bout the last name, but I like Javen as the first name. Kinda like Raven, BUT NOT! ROFFLES. x3

Hope that helped....even some. And babynames.com is okay too, D:. Orginality is always better though.

Hazazzle. That just sounds street. Then again you could just name him jack or Tom or something.

o.o';; What qualifies as an 'original' name? Azizavoo Kaliactro? Will you think less of a character named George Smith?

Hahaha... Azizavoo... poor kid.

Are you looking for like... celebrity naming? ... Apple Martin? xD Hehe. Weird names are so funny.

My favorite was once, the main character was a girl named Kamari. Now, I don't know where those syllables came from, but whenever I saw the name I thought of 'calimari'... squid. So be careful xP

I don't see why parents would just stick syllambles together. Or you could make the name have something to do with his birth. Like I was named after the Saint whose day I was born on. However, truly just pick a name that you know of and move on.

Siegfried Van Galus. Just don't ask where I got it. Because it's simple, puns and mythology.

Siegfried(I know I heard this somewhere in Nordic mythology, was he a dragon or a dragon slayer?)

Van(If I could remember I'd tell you)

Galus(Variation of Gale that sounds more....thingy)

Sigfried was the slayer of Fafnir the Dragon on Norse mythology.

How about:

Thats off the top of my head... for cool names that is.
Michael means "The man of God" or something like that. Kyler means "archer"
I don't know what Jordan or Immanuel mean, but they sound neat.
