How do you choose names for your dolls? I have a hard time thinking of names for my dolls. At first I was just keeping the names they came with, but my friend encouraged me to think up original names. I know some of you write stories, and so you mod your dolls to be characters from your stories. But I don't write, so my dolls are not specific characters. I just bought Bobobie Apollo, and he needed a name. I lay awake for hours one night trying to think of a name. I finally came up with a combination of my great grandmother's maiden name (Crownrich) as my doll's surname, then I used my grandfather's first name (Percy) as my doll's middle name, and for a first name I took the name of my dad's brother, which is Ivan, and changed the spelling to begin with an E. So now Apollo is renamed Evan Percy Crownrich. It really has a ring to it, and when I looked at Apollo in the morning, it really seemed to fit him. So how did you come up with a name for your dolls? Did you have a name before you got your doll, or did it take a while to find the perfect name?
