So ... I changed my last name from Karasu to Karisu did anyone notice Karasu means "crow" in Japanese and crows being aligned with the Dark One in WoT made me never 100% like it. But I love the sound of it. So I literally made a huge list thingy with each Japanese "k" beginning (ka, ki, ku, ke, ko), each "r" middle, and each "s" ending. I tried them all out ... and came up with ... KARISU or Charis. Which means: goddess of charm, beauty, nature, creativity *ahem* yes it fits a lot better than crow. I'm sure @Charis Delphi Sedai would agree. Btw it was a lot better than Korosu which means "kill".
