Name origins

The "Name origin" section in character articles aren't for real-life linguistic etymologies of the names but rather for explanation why that name was choosen for that particular character (which sometimes does have something to do with etymology but more often it's about sound or some cultural association with the name). If the etymology is irrelevant in the context of the character, there's no need to put it here. --Maxim (talk) 07:45, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Got it! What would be the protocol for the origin of a name that is just unclear or unknown? Preparefortrouble (talk) 00:22, 29 September 2020 (UTC)
