Since I see each Tama as having the collective memories of every Tama raised on that device I give a name to each device and every Tama on that device carries that name. My green V3 is always Grimlock, my zebra striped V3 is always Ludo and my clear pink V1 is always Fizzgig. But if the option for naming isn't there ( like with the P1/P2 and TamaGo ) I don't usually name them. They are simply Tama.


You worded it perfectly. I do the exact same thing. I tend to only name Tama devices that have the name giving option. There's something about punching in its name in the character fields that makes the names so much more official.


Right now, just my V4.5 has a set name: Topur (pronounced "tow-per"). I thought long and hard for that name, and for some reason, Topur is what fit its "personality."


My chocolate chip cookie V5 will most likely be named Cooky or Sugar. (I always wish the name could be longer than five characters.) I like to go along with the shell's theme if I can. ^_^

I like the way you phrased that. Yes, actually punching in the name does make it seem more official. I'd like more than five letters too. My Tama Fizzgig's name is spelled out Fzgig on the Tama. But there may not be room on the screen for anything longer.

I usually give them names that I would use as usernames, such as Flare.

I don't really have a naming system.  I might name them after a book or TV show character.  Sometimes I name them after my friends.  Most of the time, I give them the first name that comes to mind.  For example, I currently have a 4.5 named Aasey.  It used to be Casey after my friend, but it glitched.

I always have references to my names, whether its after band names, song names, pokemon, celebrities, books, YouTubers, and even Greek and Roman gods. Also, sometimes I just hear a really unique name that I think sounds really good. Here's a list:

Flora-I heard that name in an episode of Doctor Who

Paris-After the city Paris, of course.

Violet- Just sounds like a really pretty name

Flare- after Team Flare in Pokemon X&Y

Harry- Harry Potter! Wooh!

Percy- Percy Jackson! Wooh!

Jace- Mortal Instruments! Wooh!

Felix- after a YouTuber called Pewdiepie, but his real name is Felix

Kirlia- after a very pretty Pokemon

Charlie- after the main character in the show Revolution

Amaura- this cute pokemon in Pokemon X&Y

Fenny- short for Fennekin, a starter in X&Y

Masao- After a character in some horror game

Maxie- just a really cute name

Natsu- japanese for summer

Ariana- after Ariana Grande (singer, actor)

Bellatrix- Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter! Wooh!

Bellona- Roman goddess of war. Also really pretty name.

Michi- Japanese for something, I forget, but it's a nice name

Loki- Thor's brother (god)

Marzia- after another famous YouTuber

I remember this one time I was up to like 30 generations and all the names started with the letter M because the first and second one started with M, and my OCD was like, hey man, one does not simply start something with two of the same letters and then change it. That's just really wrong man.


And then I was like, but OCD, what happens when I run out of names five letters or less that start with M? You also told me that I can never repeat names! That's really wrong!


And then my OCD told me, hell if I know man. Just put that sucker on pause until you can think of one. Ain't no way you gonna go against what I say.


So I listened to my OCD. Once I ran out, I paused it. It stayed that way for months until finally I lost the darn thing.
