Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know about a useful site for coming up with Hallowe'en-themed names.
I will be hatching my Akai, which means I need to come up with a spooky name that will work with Japanese characters. I'm sure I won't be the only one with this situation.
I found a great site called The Obakemono Project
. It's an online encylopaedia of Japanese spooks and spirits. "Obakemono" means 'shapeshifter' but it's a general term for supernatural beings, often spooky.
I've shotgunned "Hitodama" for my Akai, nobody take that one!
A hitodama is a floating fireball/will-o-the-wisp that contains a human spirit.
I hope you guys are thinking of cool names for your Tamas! I can't wait to hear about them all in the chat!
