A name for a girl

A name for a girl
11 Mar 2010 21:25:12

Mina-san, I would like you to help me to think out a name (and maybe some bio-details) for our Shelf-girl.



She was originally created by one of my friends, Aleksandra, and recently redrawn by pineappleskewer. Cute, yeah?
Now when the girl has two pictures of herself, I think we can call her our mascot... and that means she deserves a name.

Huh, I think I am in trouble when it comes to names. But I can suggest several other details.

1. Her birthday is the 6th of September - the day when the first news-article appeared on MyAnimeShelf and with it the activity began.

What's her age? Ahhh... considering the fact she will be growing up with the site, eh, 15?

2. I don't want her to be of any particular nationality. Let's say she happened to have relatives all over the world.

I was also thinking about making her a daughter of a rich couple who take business trips to different countries and often bring her along with them. But I'm not sure. What I'm quite sure about is that she's definitely a well-to-do person because...

3. She collects anime figurines :D

...

So, any name suggestions?

P.S.: I'll create a mascot section on the site, if I ever get a third drawing of her.

Hmmm, I didn't really want to influence you, but if you have no other ideas, here's a list of female names I like:

-Cyan (the hidden name in my comment in pineappleskewer's post)
-Lilith / Lily (kind of appropriate with the massive popularity of Saber Lily here)
-April (the girl's name I've liked the longest, the reason is kind of embarrassing to admit)
-Anna (name I gave to my favorite D&D character ever)

And does she need a last name, too? He's a list of those if you like:

-Marcel
-Ducoveni
-Xenos
-Maxwell
-Terra (guess this could be a first name, too)
-Reed

No other ideas right now. Hope that's a little helpful. ^_^"

Cyan sounds very amusing to Russian ear. Unusual, but cute. Does it mean a kind of 'blue' color?
Lilith is probably too mature. I immediately started to see images of seductive succubus oO
April sounds nice, though my sole association is Ninja Turtles :D
Anna is extremely popular among Russian families (like Kate or Jane), that's why それはちょっと。。。

I actually managed to brainstorm one idea myself. Though I'm not 100% sure...

Gods, people tend to have surnames as well....why? T_T

Yep, Cyan is a specific type of blue. It's actually a shade very similar to the color of her dress in pineappleskewer's drawing.

Heheh.... Sadly, you guessed right....

Symmfel sounds like a 'symbol' to me... but what symbol? No, I don't know :)
Elly, Sophie and Ehnia are all very sweet and tender. I'm pretty sure what we need is something very close.

Ok, guys, let's wait a bit. Maybe someone else would get a bright idea. As I mentioned above, me too, having been influenced by your suggestions I managed to think out one name. I'll tell you soon.

I've been thinking of Japanese-style name.
Sheruko of Shefuko - stands for Shelf + ko
Aki or Akiko - since "aki" is autumn
Then when I look at her, she is like a rain or pastel sky for me, so
Kosame - which means a little rain, but that, as well, could be a last name,
Sorako - stands for "sora" (sky) + ko

I'll maybe think of something more today.
BTW, do you plan to make a Rus. post about it, so our Russian-speaking users can think of it too?
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?

I always end up picking names that start with "C".... o:
I also like Lily! She reminds me of the tiny flowers on the Lily-of-the-valley.
Oh Japan, why you gotta make everything so darn expensive? ; n;
