These are all such beautiful and well thought out designs. My personal favorite is the pale pink one in the top row on the far left. But all of them are beautiful. The designs are diverse and creative. You did an excellent job.
I know about names like Sakura etc., but those are supposed to be names In German it's just a normal word but never a name.
I didn't want to bash that OC though My main OC has "Mizumi" as her last name which is simply the Japanese word for "lake" - people do that simply because they want their OC's name to have a meaning and sound pretty. It's just always so weird for people who speak that very language Would be the same if a Japanese person would read about my OC.
Just for reference, her name makes sense via her backstory, symbolic meaning, and the fandom she is from. Additionally, there are multiple names in other languages that are similar to this. Ex. Usagi. Meaning: Bunny or rabbit in Japanese. Weird? Nope. I'm also German and this is not weird.
As I just stated in an above comment, I didn't mean this negative It just sounds weird to me since "Kirsche" is a normal word, not a name for me. I have multiple OCs with Japanese words as their name, too, and that would be equally strange for a Japanese person.
Just keep an open mind that not all things are traditionally this way. Based on her fandom her name is correct. If a German or any other culturally diverse person noted the fandom her name would make perfect sense. Winx. They're named after objects, plants, and so forth. Ex. Bloom, Flora, Sky etc.
That does sound weird. Ah, names are such a cultural thing. I remember reading a book as a kid where a child was named "Bobby" (short for Robert of course). Now in Enlish that is perfectly normal, but here in Germany "Bobby" was a dog's name only. Not sure how things are now, but back then I was really confused why they had a child with a dog's name.
Ahah Yep. I bet that was really confusing. Remind me of the moment I read about person called William, and then suddenly he was Bill. I was all confused, but then I was told Americans shorten William as Bill o_o (I very, very much prefer the UK version Will...)
