Naming your roleplay

I named my co-owned rp site Never Say Die after the phrase "never say die", (not very interesting). It was a roleplay site I created after all other options for animal rp had been used up/closed/left so it was kinda like a new fresh shot to roleplay how i wanted to. ~having your site literally called 'never give up' helps a bit with motivation now and then too, hehheh.~

 

I tend to like roleplays with short names (like a couple words long) that have a cool meaning, phrase, or sound good. I think the name can help 'brand' sites or set a vibe for the place. I love seeing all the unique names people come up with these days~ ❤️

I don’t know. I just thought Realms of Whimsy was cute. 

Reality is an illusion.

I normally have a plot beforehand and then I name the roleplay off the plot or something to do with the plot. Other than that, I'm normally bad at naming things XD

agonize over what to name my RPs to the point where I get frustrating with myself over not just choosing something, lol. I want the title to evoke inspiring ideas for the user. I tend to look through my favorite poetry and other media associated that inspire the genre and pick out some words or phrases to narrow down.

Ilvermorny Pride came about because I was trying to think of what was important back when I was in school and since Ilvermorny is the North American wizarding school I was thinking of the importance of school pride. We call it IP for short though. It's not terribly original, I know, but it worked in a pinch and it's stuck ever since.

My rp's name came from naming it after the land it takes place on ...

which came from a random generator lol.

I think about naming a roleplay exactly how I would think about titling a book - as you said, both creative and so that the prospective members/ readers know mostly what it is about. For roleplays, I kept with a song lyric too, but only coordinated with the above - so I had Before the Mast and Caribbean Dreams (as West Indies pirate adventures). I had once a Viking RPG which didn't take off, that was called The Quest - also with lyrics and the naval quests they had...

For books, the title and the cover tell what it is about - "The wanderers of the seas" (Viking Era historical), "Lives in turmoil" (the series title, each volume has its own subtitle - "1-Bloodied Lands", "2-The New World", "3-Other turmoils of life"-  Napoleonic wars first volume, then Western as my characters emigrate to the US), "The charm of the seas" (historical, 18-th century), "Rightness'Friends" (YA), "The Crew" (YA), "The second shuttle boat" (romance with mature characters, sequel of The Crew 20 years later), "On nostalgia, on love, on death" (short stories, contemporary, with and without happy end), "Protected by mermaids" (short stories, historical-mythological), "The mercenary's fate and other destinies" (short stories, historical), "Roads and yearnings" (poems).

For me, it was important from the start that the name for my newest site be something in latin. After all, it takes place in ancient Rome and it just didn't feel right to have something in English. However, like most people I didn't want it to be too long and it needed to fit the theme which is why I eventually chose Invenire Auctorita which means "Finding the Authority" which is great because the plot focuses primarily on power struggles and shifting governments. So, yeah, I might be biased, but I think it fits perfectly lol

Randomly, I have named a great number of projects over many years. The same things always come into play. Genre. Feeling. Uniqueness.
