Stanford Tulpa Study looking for more participants
(if you're chosen they'll pay for travel and lodging!)

How and why did you choose your tulpa(e)'s name?

My tulpae all picked their own names and forms, but due to their original self-chosen names sounding too much alike (Red and Rev) they ended up changing them to make it easier on me (Thomas and Wicker).

Luna's name is based on her source character (Lucia Collins), though she later deviated away from that and towards looking more like Princess Kaguya.

Elise used to be called Europa, since I thought I'd get some theme naming going. But she apparently decided that was stupid, and I ended up bouncing names off of her until I chanced upon Elise, which she liked.

Saria is... well... Saria >.> And that's really all there is to say on the matter.

Naomi used to have a different name that I made up for her, but she started calling herself that one day after becoming sentient.

I'm not exactly sure. I just really liked the name (has nothing to do with loving the series/character), and I immediately thought of it when I decided to make a tulpa. It felt...right. And now she loves the name, so that's good.

QB's form is Kyubey. So that is what I called him until he told me he liked the "fan name" for Kyubey, QB, better.
The above post does not contain facts.
q2's the host, QB's the tulpa.

Placidia is just a spin on the word placid. I chose it because hence her name, she is very easy going and relaxed.

... from some cruddy game.

Too well of a fit... name, form, and personality all being one word.

When I had originally thought up of Lisette, I had wanted to name her something that sounded like royalty and was unique. So I took Lisette from a character I had liked from an old anime and just was able to think of Stroiche one day randomly so I threw that in as well.

Sometimes "Lisette" can be a bit much to say, so I've got a nickname or two for her like "Ai" which works well.

I honestly can't remember how I came to name him Philip. Darn it.
Maybe from a movie or TV-show or something?

Amelie is French, but I didn't name her that because of the movie. It comes from Amalie and Amelia. Just smushed them together, and there you go.
Name: Philip
Age: (7 June, 2012)
Form: Male teenage human, light brown hair, green eyes, jeans & hoodie

Name: Amalia
Age: (15 Dec, 2012)
Form: Female teenage fairy, black hair, blue eyes, white dress

I have a horrible habit of associating a name with whomever i know with that name, and therefore i chose the most beautiful name i know, that i´ve never met anyone with.

Why wasn't this a thread already?

Nova was a play on the name Noah. I took the name from a character I was going to write into a short story but didn't end up doing. In the story Noah was a human while Nova was an AI. Other than naming the characters I didn't really do much with them, so it made a good clean slate for me to start with.

I've been calling him Nova almost exclusively but recently I've been using Nova as his online username and Noah when I actually talk to him, it's just taking a while to get used to.
