Surprisingly enough, a few years ago I became good with kids too, boys and girls all the same (guess I still am, if my current homunculus Pedobear keeps in control). But I always knew that I was in charge of them just for a little while, to (carefully) play around and teach them a couple things, but never having to be really/fully responsable of them and their lives for the rest of my own. So, while I could enjoy their eventual company, I knew for sure that it'd be simply NUTS to even frame the idea of having kids of my own (also, I was very close to that happening in my teens... needless to say, that shit-scared me for life, to say the least).
That said, I remember an article about a guy who named her daughter Kana after the eroge character; later, her wife found out and it became an uberscandal. I was, of course, a defendor of him: Kana is an outstanding and admirable character, for many reasons beyond being simply an incestuous teen from an adult game. After that, I started thinking, even thought I know I shall never have them, what names would I like to give to my entirely hypotetical children and, after considering many options, I decided for the next two:
- Andrei, if a boy... because it's very sonorous, close to άνδρας -man,male- and in honour to Tarkovsky.
- Nagisa, if a girl... because it sounds beautiful and feminine, and other several complex and intimate reasons regarding the simbolic value of shores, sand, glass and its wonders (I even wrote a whole essay about this one).
