I know that names translate. But that never made much sense to me. I would think that no matter where I went in this world, my name would be the same. I don't understand why it would translate into their language... It's my name.

The names usually have meanings, so what we are saying when we translate the name is what it means, not that you should bee called that. Seriously, Deep Love as an English name would just be awkward, but Shen Ai as a Chinese name is plausible.

Shen Ai, I realize that you're Korean and not Chinese and that Shen Ai isn't your actual name.

Lol, it's okay. Shen Ai is part of the name of my best friend. Ai is the name of one of my personal heroes. My fiance of course told me to start using it, and it's related to her in a way, so it's all connected.
I've a brave warrior in my army. Shen Ai is his name, and he can slay this Hua Xiong.

Wei has no more famous commanders, Shen Ai takes lead of the vanguard!

Even a commoner on the street knows what Shen Ai is thinking!

Mine comes from an old NES game called Astyanax. Remlia was the name of the first level.

It wasn't a fantastic game, but I always liked the music. Redroad was my favorite, but I think Remlia sounds nice as a name.

Mine is the name of my OC warrior in Koei games like Dynasty Warriors and Romance of the three Kingdoms.

Mhi Hayoli is one of the Wei warriors and quite a lovely girl. Also in Dynasty Warrior - none of the Wei officers dares to hit her on the battlefield O~O That freaks me out sometimes. It's like they don't want to hurt her. They just roll and dodge around like monkeys XD

Mine was the name of my favorite character I made in the Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (and later Oblivion and Skyrim).

Out of curiosity, does Habast the character have a set race? It sounds Bosmer, but I'm probably wrong.

There was a character named Ijuin Enzan in the series Rockman.EXE, which I used to be an obsessive fan of; somehow I decided that Enzan backwards was a reasonable name, and I've used Nazne since.

Khajiit, actually, though I know it doesn't sound very much like it. :lol:

Haha, that's funny.

It's the nickname of a character from Final Fantasy 4 but looks okay disambiguated. Other than the obsessive skirt chasing I had some similarities to the character when I thought of the name. I used it on other forums years ago and a friend of mine said it was recognisable as a name I'd pick, and it has my real nickname in it.

Not sure I like it compared to when I first joined. All the awesome three kingdoms era and character names here make me feel inferior but I couldn't find any free that I liked or think of anything better. :|
