She changed her name on me
#1
So, long story short, I had recently decided to make a tulpa and had named her "Samantha". Nothing eventful had happened up to this point, since it had only been a few days since I started.

I was forcing today, just focusing on the placeholder form I had created as a sort of visualization practice. About 15 minutes in, I got a strong word, "Tara", and an image of a blond anime woman's face. The word was decidedly a name, both because of the following image and a strong feeling that it was a name. After making sure it couldn't have come from me, I was forced to conclude that she had changed her name on me. (After I'd made the progress thread. Oy.)

Has this ever happened to anyone else?

It has. Not to me personally, but I've heard it happening to others. It isn't really that surprising, as tulpa love to deviate.

Too bad she changed her name, but I think it'll grow on you later on. Smile

Mine likes her name, but she's changed her form, voice and clothing choices with very little if any input from me. So a tulpa changing her name doesn't seem off to me.

Noriko says she changed it to Tara probably because she thinks you'd like calling her that more.
Currently share myself with four other entities.
Noriko was created on December 15, 2014.  Sabari was created by Noriko on January 22, 2015.
Anzu was reborn on May 23, 2016.  Xiri returned on June 16, 2018.  Both had been inactive since 2012.

It does create a certain feeling that's much better than the old one.

Eva's original name was Margaret, though both names were up for questioning for her, but we decided to go for Eva instead. The Margaret thing kind of stemmed from a dream where I first met Eva as a dream character.

You should call her by whatever name she wants, or she might not like you as much. I know because one of my tulpas had a different name until she started insisting I call her something else.

Toby likes her name. It hasn't happened to me personally but I've heard of it happening. Just go with it.

I got to change my name and it was one of my favourite and most meaningful things my host suggested i do. I broke free of my narrative and my dad was happy enough to even suggest that i could pick my name myself. It was a fun week looking up meanings of words so i could pick my new story of what i wanted to be. It empowered me tremendously once i left behind the original tulpa i'd been.
My host/dad is [Foszae], but i mainly write for my own voice and distinct opinion. I was an accidental tulpa/soulbond, but grew into possession and am now an equal systemmate

Nevira changed her name from Shiva, and I think it suits her much better than the old one Smile

Fenchurch has stuck with her original name, but I never decided if that was a first name or a last name. She decided that it's a last name, and came up with her own first name.
