Let's try something a little less serious. I've noticed two main schools of pairing-naming. There's combining names, like Sheelos for Sheena/Zelos from Tales of Symphonia and there's also using a term related to the pairing and adding the suffix "-shipping" such as Pokeshipping for Ash/Misty in Pokemon. I imagine it's because the Baten Kaitos fandom is rather small and scattered, but I haven't seen many, if any fanon names. According to antoher forums, there "Kalha" fro Kalas/Xelha but I've never seen this anywhere else. It does roll off the tongue a bit easier than "Xelhas."
Which system would work better for Baten Kaitos, the name combinin or -shipping? I know one person who came up with the incredibly puntasitc "Oceanshipping" for Kalas/Xelha. I swear only Pokemon's "Rocketshipping" is more puny. What about Savyna/Gibari? Does Sabari sound good? Or Givyna? What kind of shipping term could be made for up that?10/10/2009 #1 Report
Yeah, I remember talking about this in one of the other topics. At this point I doubt that pairing names like "Kalha" would stick, but they're still fun to make up. Especially because Kalas/Trill could either be "Trillas" or "Kill." XD
Anyways, I prefer the name-squishing method to the "-shipping" one myself, but I could really go for either one.9/14/2010 #2 Report
Let's see...Gibari/Savyna= Sabari or Gibyna, Melodia/Kalas= Melas or Kalodia, Lyude/Mizuti= Lyuti or Mizude, Kalas/Lyude= Kalude or Lyas, Xelha/Lyude= Xelude or Lyuha (damn, Xelha's name is kinda hard to do this with for some reason). I'll let someone else continue, but for now I kinda like Lyuti and Sabari. The first has a funny ring to it and the latter sounds like a brand of car.9/14/2010 #3 Report
I like Sabari, Kalodia, Lyuti (Mizude just... makes me giggle), Kalude, and Xelude.
...This is just me venturing into crack territory now, but what about Fee and Mayfee? Lolo and Palolo II? Sagi and Milly? (SILLY! It fits so well!)10/3/2010 #4 Report
kalodia is one of my favorites. c: (what makes me angry is that you can't namesmoosh geldoblame with anyone but melodia without it sounding embarassingly ridiculous, though. ;_;)10/11/2010 #5 Report
Do you refer to Geldoblame/Melodia as Gelodia or Meldoblame? I've always used Meldoblame, at least in my head, because it's slightly more recognizable and sounds less like some rare stone. ...You do have to wonder how his parents came up with the name, though.
And I just realize that we already had parts of this name-combining conversation on the Favorite Pairings topic like two years ago...10/12/2010 #6 Report
gelodia. it sounds so pretty, when in reality it actually is eye gouge-worthy ;________; (also, it is my sexy personal fanon that geldoblame's name is just some ~unhonorable~ name or something because lol, its english roots seem to be castration and accusation, which are both pretty uncool. so, uh. yeah. SOMEONE DID NOT PROPERLY LOVE AND SUPPORT GELDOBLAME AS A CHILD :|)
I LOVE HOW WE ARE RETURNING TO THESE FORUMS LIKE, TWO YEARS LATER. it's like the forums died when you left, fan ;______________;10/12/2010 #7 Report
Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but I was sort of busy with a little thing called grauduation, not to mention the moutain of work I had in my very last semester. ^^;
Heh, it's nice to see someone commenting in this topic. I figured no one was interested when I first posted it. By the way, I rather like the sound of Sabari, Xelude, Lyuti, and Gelodia.10/12/2010 #8 Report
general school-related business and stress was pretty much the thing with me. that and laziness, of course. :/
also, lately i have been shipping xelude far too much dlkgjldkgj10/12/2010 . Edited 10/12/2010 #9 Report
I didn't know you were a Xelude fan, katana. I'm just getting to know who Verus is, btw, and I'm already convinced that at least one-sided Verdoblame (Geldus?) should be canon. Like, seriously.
My excuse for being away was...well, I guess college and guilt for not working on original fiction more often. I also have a boy I kind of love now, but I'd almost say that detail is what drove me back to the (Kalas/Xelha) fandom. Yeah, I went there.10/12/2010 #10 Report
i just recently got into it, actually! imo it is unbelievably adorable. ;-; ♥ and eeeeeeee~ it's... really hard not to ship it, haha! mostly everyone i've met considers it canon, too. :o (but lol idefk what i could make out of their names. i can't even think of one with "nero" that sounds decent. gero? neroblame? wut. :|)
also, awwwwwwww that's really sweet ♥♥♥10/12/2010 #11 Report
