How are beings/people/foul fiends etc named on your fictional world(s)? What are the meanings behind their names? Can people change their names or is this banned? My rebellious fairy godmother, Eileen, had an original royal fairy name of Deamadrell but changed it to the human Eileen in protest at magical power abuses and as she knew it would upset and annoy her cousin, the Fairy Queen. Eileen was right - it did.
In your fiction, are there rules to be followed when naming a child? Are species limited to names usually associated with their own groupings or can any name used on your worlds be used by anyone?
Do people live up to their names (for good or bad)?
Are there such things as christening ceremonies (or equivalent)? Who conducts these?
Are names treated with immense importance or not?
