    Ah, I'll ask.

    How's "Hananome" for a surname? I mean, I may as well change it now if it makes no sense XD It'll save my ass if I ever publish C-P, as well.

    I had no intention of a meaning, I thought up the name back when I just slapped together random syllables for a name, so I'm up to changing it if needed.

    Hananome uses kanji and one hiragana in the middle, so I don't think it would be good as a name, unless you change the "no" in the middle to a kanji with the same pronunciaton, like in Kumono Tsuki's name.

    Hananome. I don't know, better check this with Damesukekun...

    Hananome would be: 華野音
    Sound of the flower fields.

    Your character's voicebank should have something to do with being smooth and slick in vocalizations, as with the euphemism of a flowery voice/speech.

    What type of voicebank would you expect from 'Haku Rein'?
    I'm not exactly sure if the voicebank fits with his name; though I didn't think of a certain meaning when I named him.

    Rein won't do. Haku can mean anywhere between white or clapping beats. (拍音)

    I imagine Rei Hakune would be like a fast-paced voicebank, since it's about tempo.

    I have to thank you guys for helping me out with Luna's surname ;w;
    I didn't know I was using Ameya's surname for Luna before you had told me. Dx
    But thank you, the surname 市音 suits her a lot better ;w;

    I've been wondering about this for quite a while.
    Has anyone ever thought of taking UTAU names like Camila Melodia, WHITE, Trace Webb, LOKE, BLYTHE Anaka, and names like that (with English words in them, for the most part) and tried writing them in kanji to preserve the pronunciation as much as possible, but still be written in kanji and make a vague bit of sense?

    I'd be curious to see the results, to be honest. Especially to see what the possible meanings would mean.

    I had, actually, but with Aline's first name instead XD And it was taken from a game character's name, not to count the slightly different romanization (It's romanized as Arine instead of the correct one, which is Ariine) T_T

    The kanji used was 有音. It means... Belonging sound. Whoa XD

    Why on earth would you put it in kanji

    I tend to post nicovids of Lavan using his name in katakana;
    ラバーン アシュ
    but then it was too long so I stopped.

    911's name is a number so it's their problem if they read it as "kyuu-ichi-ichi" instead of "nine-one-one".

    But I made sure his character sample went "Nine one one!" just in case.

    People do that when they need to write their name in chinese. It's different though in Korea and Japan, and it's seen as kind of useless there for a western person to write their name in hanja.

    (So, I wouldn't really recommend somebody doing this, unless it's using the Sino pronunciation of the characters)

    I'm not saying that I'd want it in kanji so that I could use it in Kanji, I'm just saying I'd want to see the different ways to write it in kanji and what those ways meant.
    Just for fun and to see if their name has any hidden meanings that no one ever knew about (:

    Hanja and Kanji are the same word, ahaaa;;;
    (They're both different readings for "Han Alphabet")

    You can write a western name in Chinese, but if your using a different reading system other than chinese, (The Korean or Japanese way for reading the characters)It's kind of redundant, since both languages have their own alphabets for writing pronunciations.

    I'm not saying that you can't or shouldn't write in Chinese characters, but that it would seem pointless to people expecially if it's not the Sino pronunciation.

    That's what I'm saying Razz It would be a pointless thing to waste time with when there's nothing better to do.

    I've always been worried on naming my charas so I tend to get actual meanings I know of and put them together somehow and use translating sites just to check. But for Mira, I just named her whatever I thought fit her. What would "Aoki Mira" mean anyway? I can type in Japanese and tell apart Kana from hiragana, but I don't actually know what her name means. I've spelled her name like 青木ミラ and I'm not sure if it was written correctly. o ^ o

    The characters for Aoki that you used mean "blue/green wood" (Reffering to trees)
    Mira can mean anything since it isn't written in hanja.



    Oh and yeah, kana in general stands for the japanese alphabet. So Katakana and Hiragana are both kana.

    I think Luna means that Kana is the umbrella term for both katakana and hiragana. It can be used to refer to either or both. ^__^

    ...The "-gana" and "-kana" in hiragana and katakana are the same word, ahaaa. *A*;;;;;

    The characters for it means "informal note/name" because in old Japan, the scholarly class wrote in chinese, and kana were simpler alphabets made for all classes to read. (It's the same in Korea with hangul, btw)

    (The reading sometimes is read as a dakuten (ga) instead of a with primary vowel sound depending on the word.)
