Is your character's name a reference to someone, something, or what? What is the significance of your name or why did you pick it?

Finnegan is derived from the book Finnegans Wake (1939). Wakefield was derived from the book Rama II (1989) from character Richard Wakefield.

Well shit. This whole time I just thought your name was basically "Finnegan's Wakefield." The Rama II reference never even popped in my head.

Simply, I just wanted the most snobbish, pompous, rich English sounding name possible. Also, the name Reginald Dampshaw itself comes from me mishearing a lyric in a song by an obscure English band from the 60's called Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band where it sounds like the singer mumbles "Damn that Reginald Dampshaw, I dare say"

And "III" is just to reiterate that English aristocracy.

Heart Break Gal is, as you may notice, some kinda tribute to Shawn Michaels who is the Heart Break Kid. He was my favorite wrestler. Always charismatic. He always had amazing matches, and I was such a proud HBK Fan. HBG's "real name" Claudia was just random and a name I really really liked. I thought of this, I believe, in WHW when we were supposed to make Original characters so I came up with "Claudia Michaels". But even with that, I decided to combine the characters since they were both sharing the same Picbase anyway (Melina). In Legion was when I made a sign up and just decided to make Claudia Michaels the real name of HBG. 

Rosanna is something I've always wanted to name my kid, because "Ross" is my father's name.So I guess in a way, it's also a nod to him. I threw that in as one of MANY options I had for HBG's Devil Spawn. Roxy though is literally just a nickname I picked cause I wanted a "Sweet ___" name. I'm also trying to make it similar to Robbie's name, who is her father. So they're like Rov and Rox.. Robbie and Roxy... isn't that cute as fuck? 

Few of the options I had for my kid was Aphrodite "Sweet Dee" Vendetta, Clementine "Cece", Gwendolyn "Sweet Gwen", Dayanara "Heiress Yana", and Giovanetta "Jill" . I was doing my best to stick with the name I really want. Sweet Roxy is a catchy name though so I stuck with it

I had a friend that I used to watch wrestling with a lot when SmackDown: Just Bring It was the hot, new video game.  He created a character for me on his game and named it Jeff X and I've just been rolling with it ever since then.

The original e-fed character I created way back in the day was named Jaysin Seth Freeman and was named Jaysin as a combination of the word Jay, which was an old term for a redneck or someone who did things backward, and sin, which is an act against the divine law, Seth came from Set, who was the Egyptian god of chaos, and Freeman because he considers himself a "freeman"

I named my character, Jessykah Schwarz, after my real life name of Jessi VonSchwarzburg. I changed Jessi to Jessykah to be more of a feminine name and changed the i to a y and added an ah to make it unique, and I dropped the von and burg part as I realized it was a mouth full to say and write.

I thought Rochelle name represents a very strong word based off of how it's said, but also keep its femininity and elegance. In fact, I think I thought of the name first and built my character around it lol.

Carlos Rosso- Carlos is my real name, the last name is a nod to Vulcano Rosso, an Italian fighter from the Street Fighter EX video game series. 

Diantha Moreau- Diantha is a name of one of the league champions of the Pokemon series, which I'm a fan of. Moreau is a common surname in parts of Louisiana, where I'm from.

The name Amora means love, from "amore" and Ferris is the last name of Green Lantern's love interest, Carol Ferris, who becomes Star Sapphire, queen of the Zamarons and wielders of the love rings. It was actually unintentional that they're both love related but I suppose it's actually something I could work with in the future.

Drake was always a cool sounding name and I thought it flowed well with “Kenny.”

Also, nothing else worked. Soooo

Doni Prasdana: Doni is my nick-name in real life and Pradana (without "S") is my first name, lol.

Nobi: Took an inspiration from Nobita, a character in Doraemon anime. The real Nobi was one of my cats and he was the one that I loved the most. He passed away in 2015 :/

Diaz Iniesta: A'right, I never promoed as this character, lol. Iniesta is taken from Andres Iniesta, a Soccer/Football player from Spain. Diaz is just a name that I thought would be good enough to combine with Iniesta, lol.

Scotty Adams explains itself honestly. It's my real name (well, Scotty's a nickname I've had since I was 2). 

Kiara on the other hand, is a name that I picked because it was both soft-sounding and also rolled off the tongue easily enough (and is one of the names I would name a daughter). The Roberson part was partially inspired by OKC's Andre Roberson but is also a name I thought was somewhat interesting (I originally thought Robertson, but figured Roberson was cooler)

Hans is taken from Dolph Lundgren as his real name is Hans Lundgren. One of my favorite action actors.

I took Olsen from a Sweden Soccer/Football player as I browsed the team information for getting a last name and I found it fitting as I already decided Hans as my first name earlier, lol.

Christie - Christie Monteiro was my fav character from Tekken

Tony Rolland: Tony was a reference to two things. One was a local indie nobody that I liked at the time of creating the character. The other was "Tony's Theme" by the Pixies, which is the ultimate babyface theme. Rolland, along with being a family name within Tony's canon (he became a 3rd generation wrestler within the span of 10 years. Figure that one out.) was originally a reference to "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came" by Robert Browning, which I always interpreted as being the morality tale of how being a hero offers no reward, how righteous is futile in the face of the evils of the world, and how ultimately all knights are bound for damnation. So yeah, it ended up fitting the Rolland family in the long run.

Fertility Lynch: Inspiration for the character initially came from a glib and sardonic psychic in Chuck Palahnuik's book "Survivor". The only real traits Lynch got from her namesake Fertility Hollis, were her first name, her unimpressed attitude, and a career as a sex worker. Granted, Hollis pretended to be a professional surrogate mother to con couples out of money, despite the fact she was herself barren, and Lynch was a gun horny prostitute/assassin. The choosing of the surname Lynch was also kind of a play off of Hollis' ironic pseudonym that was supposed to evoke 'fertility' and 'nature'. Lynch is a bit more blunt considering my Fertility's lines of work could potentially involve a noose for execution or foreplay purposes.

"The Pizza Boy" Andy Sa(u?)nders: He was called pizza boy because he was a pizza boy. I gave him the name Andy Sanders because it's both phonetically pleasing and easily forgettable, which was an intended running joke for the hapless and put-upon underdog being forced into a life of pro wrestling against his will. Poetically enough, it came to a point where I had to go back to his profile to see if there was a u in the middle of the last name because I too became accustomed to calling him Pizza Boy.

The Derelict: It's pretty well outlined in my profile.
