What are you naming your player character?

Wow; all this time, and I didn't know that. Though, I guess I never re-styled my hair after my first salon visit.
Yeah, white hair and another color (can't remember which one) were unlockable after you beat the League for the first time. Can't blame you for not knowing that since I discovered that two years after release (my hair color was already available so I didn't need to change it again).

Starting with Let's Go, I decided to just use Esserise as the name for my main playthroughs and most of my other accounts for the sake of continuity.

But I'll still "invent" characters for any subsequent runs. I'll at least play as the girl and name her Shelly for my second.

"Nori" for the game I put in English and のり for the game I put in Japanese, both very normal for me. X)

I always name my characters either my real name, or Victor, my Pokemon self-insert character. Since these games have Victor as a literal canonical name and that’s the closest I’ll ever get to my own name as a canon name, if I got the games I’d take the male PC, and name him Victor.

Coincidentally my OC Victor also wears a red shirt the kind SwSh Victor wears... That’s weird...

I haven't used a made up name since probably black and white. I may consider doing a made up name again. A shortened version of my name is getting kinda old...
I use to have made up names all the time when I played pokemon as a kid.

I will always use my real name, or a screen name depending on what it is.

My trainer's name is going to be Sophie.

I ended up going through lists of recent popular name choices for girls in England or Scotland, and I found Sophie during my trip through the Scotland list, though technically the name does have Greek origins.
 
I need more friendship.

If I decide to also play Sword (I'm getting a copy of Sword for my sister and due to multiple profiles I can play it to) I'll play the guy protagonist and name him Zack.

After looking through the responses, surprisingly it seems like people making fake names are slightly in the lead if I counted correctly (note: it's somewhat likely that I miscounted :enzap:). I got 15 people going with their real name, 17 with a fake one, and 8 people that are either undecided or will use both a fake and real name.

We went with "Cumberbitch!" Took the most British name we could find, and since we were playing the girl, we changed a letter to make it giiiiirlish.

Since the waifu is named Marnie it was only natural that I name my FeMC "Anna" to match. :whistle:

Is this a reference that's going over my head?
Anna was the protagonist of the novel "When Marnie Was There" - my absolute favourite book as a child. :love:

Now a Studio Ghibli animated film too.

I'm naming my male Sword MC Touken (刀剣 トウケン), while my female Shield MC will be called Kanka (干戈 かんか).

That is really fun to say.
It is, isn't it? There's not many ways of reading "shield" in Japanese, so it was either that or "Tate", which... I suppose Japanese players would pronounce correctly, but Western players, not so much. ("Ta-teh" as opposed to "Tayt".)
