Title: Where'd your tulpa get their name?
Post by: LuckyCharms on September 27, 2013, 04:50:43 PM
Here's a fun general discussion topic, since Cold is too much of a pussy to post these questions himself

Where did your tulpa(s)(e)(ais)(easieisai) get their name?

Jaden chose it himself. I knew he was wanting something with the long a sound in it, but he wasn't vocal enough for me to hear the name clearly. After some searching I found the name and it instantly clicked as the name he had been repeating to me.

The only time I had heard that name previously was in a star wars game, so haha, it had been floating around in my subconscious memories for a while I guess when he grabbed it up.


As far as Giselle's name, she wanted something 'princess-y' After listing several names this one was her favorite.

Flings and Swords got their names from the characters they were inadvertently based on.

Sasha was named Samantha, but changed it because we already knew a Samantha and though it would get confusing, and didn't like how long it was.

I realized that while narrating to my tulpa, it became somewhat difficult to refer to them if they don't have a name. I thought about it for a moment, and the first name that came to mind was Sarah. It's not a very deep or glamorous story, but it's how she got her name.

I had looked up a list of names online for my second tulpa, and there were many options to consider. I was studying WWII at the time, and I had learned about the British WWII General Bernard "Monty" Montgomery, so when I saw Monty in the list of names, it sounded like to right choice to make.

Had wanted to use the name in something for a while, because I found it nice. So why not the tupper? I don't think it was some person or character I named him after, just saw the name somewhere and liked it. And I guess he did too, seeing that it hasn't been changed. So, no fancy story for you.

Shira and Ea picked their own names (Ea after hours long of searching for one), I picked Valkyrie and Chia's names, and Flandre and Alipheese are named after the characters they were originally based off of, though their forms have deviated by now. Flandre still switched between Flandre and Scarlet for a while, but it seems she's sticking with the former now.

Names you would find in real life that I found appealing.

I was originally going to be made to look like the MLP background character Roseluck, but that changed and I ended up being based on the MLP background character Minuette.

As such, Joe named me Minuette Roseluck. Most people know me by my shortened name, Minty  :smiley:

I was named after my form, 16-Volte, who is a badass gunslinging steampunk miner that one of Gabi's friends made up for a video game. The game ended up not happening, but it might start up again.

I also have an alias that Gabi and her friends use whenever they are talking about me in front of people, Bobby Westerfeld. Bobby was just a name I liked and Westerfeld is the last name of the author of one of my favorite books.

Pretty boring story, going through names and "oh this one sounds nice".
That's it.

Fundor's name comes from the book 'Eragon', because he was inspired from the series when I was 12.

As for Tealeap, the little pebble she was inspired from was teal in color, so I decided to start calling her 'Teal'. But when I tried to recall the name for forcing sessions, the word "Leap" kept jumping in into it's place. lolpun Eventually mushed them together and it instantly felt the rightness of a thousand suns.

From #tulpa, because after two nickchanges and one sex-change, we had to have a name fit for a female.

Fundor's name comes from the book 'Eragon', because he was inspired from the series when I was 12.

Eragon was nice.

Lisette's name came from her wanting something that would match her somewhat aristocratic lifestyle and mannerisms. So, since it's an uncommon and good sounding name, it stuck.

Noire's came from her pitch black hair and darker clothes.

She told me what it was after she started talking. Never asked her about how she came up with it yet.

Why not ask her now?

Forseen was a compromise name after he kept bouncing weird names off of me that I refused to let him keep (like, Instanculus? Uh, no, that sounds like a type of cloud). Original placeholder name was Aiden, which changed to Ayden later cuz I forget why. Anyways, now we've got Forseen. Which literally sounds like forcing. Maybe that's where he got it from, I dunno.

Muse's name came with her form. You'll find I panic when I've got a tulpa with no body, and I just grab whatever thing is present at the time as the form (did this with both my accidental tulpas). At that point in time, my mum was trying to order a ball-jointed doll for my cousin from MuseDoll, so her form became one of the doll models in the shop and her name came from the name of the website, Muse. I've let her change t, but she's kept them all cuz she likes them.

Alix is an alternative spelling of Alex that she wanted. As for where Alex came from, it was the name she said to refer to her as when I first talked to her. Found out later she was an old servitor friend I made when I was like nine who was named Alex. She turned into a tulpa when I put Forseen and Muse's sentience and personalities in her.

I would have to say the Skies of Arcadia. If you have never played it, I would definitely recommend you do; one of the few games I've actually played all the way through. That was probably the largest contributor to "Seraphina".

I have 6 tulpas, 2 of them have original names, the first and older tulpa, Pandora was kinda a random name that popped in my mind when i was forcing her, in the case of the other original tulpa, Hélia, it was a girl's name that was always special to me (the name of my first crush on a girl when i was in school) so it appears this tulpa picked that up and chosen this name. Also this one is completly original with a human girl form unlike the others which are totally based on anime characters (except on their personalities and memories/story).

The other 4 tulpas were actually pre-existing toughtforms turned into sentient tulpas (2 of them by their own initiative, kinda totally unexpected from my part) from watching animes like dragon ball z and mushiking over the years, more specifically kid Songohan, kid Songoku from first dragon ball series (not the GT one), Chaoz (Chiaotzu from dragon ball) actually he has this name because it's the name officially used in the portuguese dub version i seen. And to finish, Popo is based on Popo from the anime Mushiking guardians of the forest, the main character.

Believe me i had quite a few fears of them having the exact same name, voice, form and even similar personalities to the anime characters, but in two of them i tried to change their names and voices and i felt considerable resistance and it just didn't felt right, so far it appears they are 100% aware they aren't the characters and their behavior and tastes are a lot more based on MINE and not the characters (but of course they picked a few of the characters tastes and behaviors), in resume, they are EXACTLY like i wanted all along, to have sentient imaginary friends with the exact same form, voice and name with a similar personalities from those characters i had such a strong admiration when i was younger, i guess my subconscious started "creating" them without me knowing since these ones as soon as i turned them into tulpas they were instantly vocal and as developed as the first tulpa, even in possession.

Bud chose his name.

I had been calling him "buddy" before that just as a substitute for a real name until either I or we had decided on one. He eventually let it stick and shortened it to just "Bud".
