    Well, this is awkward… :oops: XD
    You know what they say, great minds think alike… and I'm notorious for having a short memory…

    Hey @KineticKaiser do you think you can edit in the link Mezzo put into the original post/first page so that it can be an available resource for first time visitors?

    Dose Logan work as a color name in reference to loganberry. Loganberry as a color is usually a deep maroon.

    It technically works, but you can probably do better.

    Thanks to @MechaG11 for helping me clear my thoughts with a couple questions as I poorly tried to explain one of my OCs. Was able to finalize an entire team because of that.

    Got the names, their meanings, general personalities, weapons, just need a couple more touch ups. But their full descriptions will be in the OC thread. The first names were all based on a separate element of earth, wind, fire, and water, just in another language. Various natural things are names like Sky and Aqua so I though these were alright. The last name however relates into their personalities and actions a bit. So rather than the first name giving you a general idea on what the character is like with their color and attributes that can be associated with, it's the last names.

    Team TPAZ (Topaz)

    Terra Vólta (Greek, Greek) - Earth/Land, Walker (One Who Walks)

    Anil Protego (Indian, Greek) - Wind (Child of the Wind), Protector

    Arika Osana (Austrailian, Spanish) - Blue Water Lily, Healer (One Who Heals)

    Shula Sofronio (African, Greek) - Flame, Controller (One Who Controls)


    Also Arika is a Waka Waka word in Australian, the only name that is hard to find how it was associated with a color. Found it on the site that was given here, and also on this site: https://waltzingmorethanmatilda.com/2013/07/28/girls-names-of-australian-aboriginal-origin-part-2/

    Do y'all think that Team BAIN (Bane) would work? I'm not sure if bane has enough of an implication to color, but to me personally it speaks of dark blacks and such.

    Sorry, but no, I think that's way too much of a stretch, especially with such a vague explanation.

    Yeah. It's been so long since I've made a team, I forgot how hard naming is…
