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.
Anyone who disagrees are dumb. I am correct hence you are wrong.

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?
