I just got Pokémon Moon, and I decided to name my character "Shinobu" after Wakamiya Shinobu from Chihayafuru, which I have been strongly into for the past few months. I always name my in game character after some character that I'm currently fawning over.

If it's a game with a full party, I likely leave them as their default name (I don't nickname my Pokémon, for instance) or if I have to give them names, I may just go with stupid crap, because I can't be arsed to name multiple characters.

What is the reasoning for this?

I think it's my way of breaking the game or the third wall by forcing the script to point out where it says (insert char name here).
But I also don't feel the need to give the character a full name.
Mabe I find it more immersive when I'm not playing a role given to me.

Velvet for females because I like the name
And
Yuri for males since it's another fav character from a Tales game

My net alias, or some variation of it, if male.

If female, one specific name I've always used.

I use my real name, but their are some exceptions. For instance, I have the option to rename Link from The Legend of Zelda series, but I never do. It just wouldn't be the same.

Zelda is about the only game where I rename the default name, and I normally rename it to something very similar, like Lint or Pink

Usually, I would use a human last name that I am fond of for my in-game character.

When I don't do this, I end up using the initials of my real name and some numbers with it.

Ah, okay. Mind if I ask why you do that? Not a big fan of the name Link?

It's just funny, because Link is such a classic name at this point. It's as if every character that ever says his name is just getting it wrong when it's off by one or two letters.

I've been trying to how a default name, Zenith. But I have a hard time with just one name. So I decided to have anything with Zen. Since its recognizable for people
