[DISCUSSION] Behind the Name
#1
When you browse the web youll find all sorts of . . . interesting names. Some are obvious whilst others seem random or imaginary. I wanted to make a thread about all of our names that people may not know the meaning behind, if it has one that is. For my name, Dova, it has a relatively basic background. I was looking at the Skyrim Wiki one day and as I looked through the Dragon Language section I saw Dōva which I thought that sounded pretty cool (I mean its definition was Dragon kind for crying out loud, seems awesome to me).Also after a little research I found out it means muffled in Swedish which can be related to how I play alot of games with an emphasis on stealth. And so Dova became my name.

@Dova 

I remember there used to be a thread like this a while back, I don't know if you saw my post on there before but I am more than willing to share the background for my username  Tongue

My Username is made up of two parts Tenebris which is latin for darkness and Kane which when the meaning is looked up means warrior. I chose this since it is actually the meaning of my name in real life with Tenebris just being the latin equivelant and Kane being a simple varient of my real last name.

When you put them together it means The Dark Warrior so it's actually a cool name in my opinion and although a lot of people won't get that, it's nice because it is just using different words with the same meaning as my name IRL  Big Grin

Cool.

I wanted a Pokemon-Themed nickname for this site, and Typhlosion is my favorite Pokemon. Retro had a nice ring to it.

@Tenebris_Kane That's actually very cool! 

As I told Dova a while ago, the origin of my username can be traced back to my avatar — the boy in the profile picture is the original 'Black Waterfall', a fictional character I created for a Pokemon tabletop RPG campaign that I played with my friends for four to five years.

The main story was set in Kanto fifty years in the future, that is, fifty years after Red became the champion in Gen I. So Black was born in Cerulean city and he was the youngest of the now renowned Waterfall family, a family that gained fame and projection in the Pokemon world as top tier Water-type trainers over the past years. In fact, the Waterfall family was so powerful that they owned the Water-type gym itself and the head of the family (Black's father) had great hopes that Black could become his successor as the next gym leader.

Unfortunately for Black, he was always a hopeless Fire-type Pokemon'aholic since the day he was born, the black sheep of the family. For the shame of the Waterfall family, as soon as Black turned eleven (Pokemon universe's adulthood!), he left home, chose a not a Squirtle (sorry Tenebris_Kane! XD) but a Charmander as his starter and set his new life goal: to become the next Fire-type gym leader and defeat his father to prove Fire-type Pokemon’s worth! He was also addicted to a fictional TV series called 'Rapidash Raiders' about cool Old West cowboys riding Rapidashes (that probably explains his cowboyish style).

In a sense I guess that 'Waterfall' is very nice surname for him, even though he claims to be a Fire-type specialist: Black's aim in life is to make Water-type Pokemon fall! Playing as Black was so fun for me that I unconsciously took over his identity (and his challenge to face Water, Ground and Rock with Fire) as a Pokemon player myself!
