Nicknames for Characters?

Postby tangyanzixuan » Wed Jan 12, 2011 4:02 am

My sister and I prefer to call the characters by nicknames that we make up in English, so that our parents have more trouble understanding what we're trying to say. I'd like to know if you guys have better nicknames than us. We amused ourselves with what we came up with anyway. And, is this in the right place? I know the nicknames are for Chinese Paladin 3, but isn't this more like Member's Hangout or something? Not sure. Anyway, we did:
Xue Jian => Snow See
Long Kui => Dragon Sunflower
Jing Tian => Well Sky
Zi Xuan => Purple (we didn't want to say purple grass)
Chang Qin => White Tofu
Xu Mao Shan => Bread Bread (take a guess why, hint: my sister first heard mao mao as baobao)
Chong Lou => we just put two fingers on our head, because that's what Yang Mi (actress of Xue Jian) did to mean him

So, does anyone else have other? Because I'd like to know what. Or, probably just called them by their normal regular names.

Is this still active? The oldest posts I've seen are from August 2010... And this saddens me:( Anyone out there? I still check on here periodically.

Oh yeah Jingtian haha. I like the JT that you made especially because J.T is a common nickname nowadays. :) Nice to see that you're at least one person on this forum alive!!! :)

I prefer acknowledging them by their actual names, but sometimes I think of Jing Tian as Sedum or View Sky, Xue Jian as Snow See, Xiao Kui as Nightshade, Zi Xuan as Purple Daylily, Chong Lou as Red Fur, and Hua Ying as Jacaranda.

The main charries are actually named after plants or genus of plants, except for that Mao Shan guy, since he's not actually a main character in the game.

Jing Tian = Sedum (The plants in the genus Sedum have upright stems, robust blades, and they look vibrant, just like Jing Tian himself.)
Xue Jian = Salvia plebeia (This plant can be used to reduce fever and to cure poison, which matches with the Tang Sect's ability to use poison. On top of this plant's swaying stems are tiny, spiky inflorescences, which suit Xue Jian's personality of being strong on the outside, but delicate on the inside.)
Long Kui = Black Nightshade, or Dragon Helianthus if it's word for word (Black Nightshades, alike the Salvia plebeia, are also used to reduce fever and to cure poison, and that represents that the love that Xue Jian has for Jing Tian and the love that Long Kui has for him are equal. Black Nightshades have little white flowers and bear fruit that look like black pearls, which give off a delicate and charming feeling, just like Xiao Kui ^^ )
Zi Xuan = Purple Hemerocallis fulva (Note that Hemerocallis fulva cannot be purple, so her full name is not an actual plant. The Hemerocallis fulva is also known as the "Forget Sorrows Plant", which contains the pity and sympathy that Zi Xuan's creator has for her, since Zi Xuan is a tragic character who has been with Chang Qing for lifetimes, yet she is destined to be apart from him...)
Xu Chang Qing = Cynanchum paniculatum (The plants in this genus look tender and mellow, but the strength of the medical effects cannot be ignored, just like a true hero.)
Chong Lou = Paris polyphylla (The Paris polyphylla is also in the Liliaceae family, just like the Hemerocallis fulva, so there's nothing strange with Chong Lou liking Zi Xuan XD Also, the Paris polyphylla's blades look like a green flower altogether; it's extremely distinct, just like Mister Red Fur.)
Hua Ying = Jacaranda mimosifolia (This blue flower has a demeanor of coyness and fear of trusting others, just like the Five Poison Beast, Hua Ying.)

Note that I've never watched the drama series and am not planning to.
