How did you come up with the names for your OCs? I always find the process of naming characters so interesting.
Ohh this was really a long long time ago. I created the names together with a friend when we were like 13-14 and created our medieval based fantasy world and needed some cool names.
We actual took the name Tiuri from a children fantasy book “Der Brief für den König” ( I don’t know an english title)
And for Aran…I thin kit was pretty simple…we looked at male names and just changed Aron..and thought it sounds great! I still like the name though.
Later we found out there are the Aran Islands and thought this also fits him and the Fantasy world. But the name is pronounced like with an actual A..like we say in german..like the A in Amalas …not the english/american A
And I think the same for Eriwan and Aiva. …we just tried out name sthat sound fitting for this world! WE even had names for their countries (all 4 came from different countries) and we tried to make their names also fitting for the countries.
We had a different name for Aiva in the beginning..I can’t remember which one though….and we changed it to Aiva in the end.
Rosa is just a girls name I really love and always wanted to have a girl character with that name. And I came up with the name Raphael when I visited a friend and met his flamate ..and he reminded me a bit of the character who was still very unplanned and nameless and I thought wow..Raphael…this is it..and short he is getting called Rafa (Rapha)
