I was wondering if I am alone in my position on this.

 

I will never assign a name to my tulpa, rather, I will let her assign herself a name.

 

I'm good at not using people's names in regular conersation, so I don't see that being a problem.

 

Thoughts?

My take on it is, name it if you like; If the tulpa doesn't like the name it will change it.

I have assigned a title to my tulpa in order to ease talking to him, I'm hoping he will understand it's only a title and that he may create his own name.

since I've had the character I'm using for a tulpa for a while, her placeholder name has been "H" (since she was originally going to be in a game, where the player would enter a name)

 

one day when I was just thinking of names that started with "H", I kept coming back to "Heather" and couldn't really get it out of my head

 

according to dane, he had a similar thing happen when he started his tulpa and when he was done, it asked to be named that name

 

so here's hoping mine will do something similar

I gave a placeholder name to my tulpa. It's just a little homage reference type deal thats small and cute. She can stick with it if she wants, but it's just a nickname really.

Currently I'm referring to her with Tulpa, and I will allow her to rename herself whenever she can. I actually start every session by telling her that whenever she is ready, I would be glad to hear her name. This way I hope her first words to me would actually be her name :)

I did originally pick out a name, but I guess they weren't really crazy about it, and liked the nickname I was using a lot more.

 

Whenever I called them by the name I picked out, I wouldn't get any sort of response.

 

When I called them by their nickname, I got responses more often.

 

So now they're Honey.

I just have a placeholder name like many others. Makes talking to my tulpa much easier. When she starts to talk herself, she can decide the name if she wants.

Eh, I chose a name at first and she sort of approved of it, changing it to her liking. It was originally Clarisse, but she said that Clair suited her much better so I guess we both had our input.

I chose a name, and I don't expect her to change it, but if she does, I won't mind.
