    I love Tulip too! ^^ I hope there are more chances to interact with her as the game goes on.

    Hmmm...I picked my name because I was living in Japan at the time, on my own spiritual journey as you will...and Tsubasa means wing(s) in Japanese. I even had a little theme song when I moved to a foreign country...Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway....:look anyway I felt that the name was fitting since I had flown away from my old life and was on a new journey. Kamui...well there is this amazingly HOT Japanese singer Gackt Camui

    and well I definitely was going through a "phase" and decided that I'd take his last name...Camui didn't look WoTish enough for me so I changed it to Kamui (which is actually more Japanese too)

    Also probably the main reason I chose the Avatar that I did...Japanese running theme :cheese

    *fans self* It's been so long since I heard any Gackt songs.

    That being said, and being an unabashed fan of anime and Japanese culture, I really love your name, Tsubasa Sedai. ^^ Even more so now, with a Gackt reference. :love :green

    I would still have a heart attack if I ever met him...I did get to go to a Gackt concert many moons ago. The man rode a horse around the stadium as the intro...***Swoons***

    My name comes from two different characters on the WOT MUD game I played.

    I was 15 years old and I mashed up my real name with Nynaeve (who was my favourite character at the time) and Nayienna came grew out from the keyboard. I'm still unsure how to pronounce it...

    Bina and Natan are both Hebrew names. Bina means understanding, wisdom and intelligence. Natan means to give. I added the al' for the Two Rivers connection. I played around with a lot of different options but loved the sound of this the most. The meaning also fits nicely with my seven years spent as a teacher and my current job providing people with information and advice and supporting them through their issues.

    Thank you, I spent a ridiculous amount of time choosing it but I'm really happy with what I settled on.

    I chose Kvothe because it is the name of the name of the main character in my current favorite fantasy series The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. I hope to like WoT just as much or more.

    My name is Victoria lynn and I usually go by Vicalynn online but last year at work someone had put my name on a memo wrong as Vicotira and I thought it was a beautiful case of dyslexia and started using it. As for Amman'sor, I'm a big Star Trek fan so i just goggled a list of star trek characters and Amman'sor was a last name of a Xindi-Aquatic that I thought sounded nice with Vicotira, add that to the fact that Enterprise is my favorite Star Trek and it worked out perfect!

    @Vico'tira Amman'sor welcome! I'm a huge star trek fan too, if you want to try out the mafia games we have here come look at the one I've got, it's a star trek theme called The Q Games :)
    I've seen all of Enterprise now and when it first came out I was leery of it but now I love it. Tucker is my fave along with Phlox! ^^

    I suspected that was the case! Your RL name being Victoria that is, which I have always thought a lovely name. That, and I'm mad about all things Victorian, because Dickens! His windy wit and humour is hard not to love. ^^

    That is so perfectly suitable, I applaud you. :clap (Especially as a fellow teacher with apparently lots of mutual interests!)
