    Need a character's name
    Hello! I'm writing a story and its anime (So please, no American, mainstream, traditional names) and I was having trouble naming the one of the main characters. He is a pretty pessimistic guy, mysterious, but extraordinarily smart. He is also super... How should I say this... Mean. He freaking mean. Though he is very driven, and very, veeerrry handsome, therefore, quite the ladies man. He is only so negative due to the part that his elder brother plays. The main character is jealous of his sibling... For... More reasons than one...



    P.S: I might be writing another one of these for another one of my characters if you like answering questions like this... Only saying this because I know I do




    Help??

    I'm not super familiar with Anime, but I'll give it a shot. Maybe you can at least get inspiration from one of these:

    Lynx, Linus/Linux, Merrick, Blayde, Zephyr, Uriah, Boris, Kai, Orion, Phoenix, Loki, Louden, Zeus, Nico, Jax, Simeon, Xan

    OROCHI = Japanese name meaning "big snake." In mythology,an eight-forked serpent who demanded virgin sacrifices. He was killed by the god-hero Susanoo.

    Thanks for giving a try! But to make you feel better, I'm not that great with anime either but just so you know anime is somewhat and usually based on the japanese culture.

    Ok, perhaps I scared you off by asking that... maybe you thought I was looking to poke you or something.

    Anyway, I asked because I was going to recommend a film for you but, not knowing your age, I am not sure if that's a good idea.

    I love film... One of my guilty pleasures are B movies and from there I have gone a step further into Asian film. No, they aren't Anime but they are somewhat bizarre in many cases.

    So, there is a film that I watched a few years ago, a Japanese action/slasher with some incredibly mean characters in it. You should be able to get some decent names from here.

    Hahaha! It did strike me as bizarre and so I hadn't planned on answering it but now that I know why you're asking it, I'm happy to tell you that I am an adult. Teehee!
