If you had to choose a new name for yourself, what would be your main criterion for choosing that name?
Let's suppose for example you are in witness protection, but you were given a bit of leeway and were able to choose your new first name. Or let's suppose you were transferred into a different world but your gender wouldn't be the same.
Consider that you will have to live with your chosen name.

    Honestly, I'd probably just pick something similar to my current name so that I wouldn't have to get used to hearing people call me something else. :P

    Either a good-sounding random string of four letters (Because L O R E)
    or
    Utsuho (So that my nickname be Okuu)

    Hmm, that's basically the same thing...

    I guess, if my personality doesn't change much (or at all), I wouldn't mind being named after a gemstone, such as Quartz, Ruby or Lazulli.

    All that really matters to me is how nice it will sound when people call me by my name.

    I just want it to sound nice and to be a 'female' name.
    BEETLE there is! While the ROOMS here not!

    Either a pun that comes to my head, or something really cool.

    something people wouldn't recognize as a name at first glance to be spesific.
    why are you here? why am I here? were we created in the same way that we created them?
