I must admit that I'm a very sentimental person, so both parts of my name come from two different friends of mine that I've made over the years. The first part of my name, Vanessa, comes from the first friend that I ever made, and the last name, Hewitt, is the last name of another dear friend of mine. I thought that the names sounded pretty together, and ta-da! Name acquired.

How I got my name is pretty boring really. My first name is Aidan anyway, so for a lack of confusion during classes i decided to stick with it. For my last name , i really like baking and baker has always been a name i go to when writing characters so, baker it was.

I have a few go-to aliases but I decided I'd mix it up this time. Arfæstne is actually a mangled form of an old English abstract noun? And Mowbray's my mother's maiden name.

Astra means star, so that is a name with a magical aura.
Carling means a hill where witches gather, so it seemed quite appropriate.
I love creating names!

My name was originally something I came up with for my bff. She's always been a huge Ravenclaw (even though Pottermore sorted her into Gryffindor at first). I wanted to come up with a name for her to use online so I chose Rowan. She didn't have any interest in roleplaying so I ended up using it on here instead. Wildsmith just sounded very...magical.

My name is rather easy. Austin is my real first name. As for the middle and last I wanted a very strong magical name with ties to a magical family bloodline (also one I could make a back history to) So my middle name is Ollivander after the greatest family of wand makers. My last name for one of my favorite wizards Serius Black who is my cousin.

With my first name I wanted to honor my friend who inrtoduced me to HOL, her real name is Shadow (she often complains about it). As for my last name I was just reading Deathly Hallows and I looked at my bookmark and I saw Gaunt. I said the name out loud "Shadow Gaunt" and I quite liked it.

Resyarrina is a name of a character from the books that i like. Resyarrina is the last princess of ancient Queen which have a very complicated fate and intriguing life story. Elora is the name come up when i try to find a name for my niece which have a meaning of "Light". Both become my favorite name and that's why i chose them.
At first, I actually consider using some name mixed of Harry Potter's characters but at last i decide not to and again using this name, which i use often in some other forum as a nick name. B)

Well, I wanted a Latin-like name, because, Draco is a Latin name, and I wanted to be his sister. I got the last name Malfoy, obviously because Draco Malfoy is one of my favorite characters. I thought it’d be cool to be his sister, so yeah. That’s how I got my name! ^_^

Hello! My name is Iverian Gnash. The reason I chose this name is actually kind of an interesting story. B) I am writing a book based off of magic. I wouldn't say it's a HP fanfic in any way because I'm actually trying to stray away from that, so this book is kind of my own thing. I was looking for a name for my character and Ivy stuck into my head. I decided that that would be more of a nickname for my character and wanted to make it longer. After thinking about it, I thought Iverian sounded cool and exotic. Gnash was just a name I found off of one of those last name generators and I thought it went pretty well with Ivy and Iverian. When I was signing up for HOL, my character's name popped into my head and I thought in tribute to her, I would use that as my username. So, anyway, that's the story. BTW, my book is now halfway finished :D

My name isn't really special. All I did was I liked the name Ivy, and I thought that since my first name was a plant, I should make my second one a plant name too. :)

My name was originally created for a Wheel of Time community I joined. I soon adopted it as my online persona and decided to use it here as well. Adanys comes from a random name generator, Wynterwulf (my last name elsewhere) comes from my love of wolves, Wolfkin, and Perrin Aybara, and Mond'wil is another random name :)
