I dunno. Asami is a really nice name...I guess I would if I like what the name meant.
I have a friend named Asami! She's Japanese! and she edited her face over TLOK's Asami and said she got together with Mako =))

Updated my profile in 2016 here, it's sad to see that my picture and signature went away. Also sad to see the size of the community; was it always this small? Ah, nostalgia....

As a parent I will say I didn't name my child after an Avatar character, but there are some really nice names to consider.

Yue, Suki, Korra, Katara, Kya, Suyin, Asmai and Jinora are all beautiful names that wouldn't be thought of as bad. Depending on where you are from or travel it is possible to meet several people with these days.

As for the boys, Tenzin and Rohan are popular names in India and Tibet. I also like the names Jet and Bumi, but probably for middle names. Smiley

Most of the names used in both shows are names used in different parts of the world. So I guess it really depends on where you live and your culture. But I do agree that you should try to pick a name where you child isn't ridiculed or teased.

When I was younger, I thought I might name a daughter Katara. Now, though, I'm not so sure. I don't know how the kid would feel about it.

As long as you give her an actual katara I think it would be fine.

At the grocery store the other day my cashier was named Anakin.  He was born right before The Phantom Menace came out and his parents were huge star wars fans and completely hyped for the movie so they named him after Darth Vader. 

I imagine they came to regret their choice.

This may have successfully made me want to use the name again.

I do question the decision to name a kid after Darth Vader though, with or without the prequels. Then again, 'Kylo' was apparently a really popular baby name last year...

Then again Kylo sounds just like some variant of Kyle which is a pretty common and normal name so I don't see much wrong with it. Similar to how Daenearys and Eddard became popular through Game of Thrones. They are just old forms of Dennis and Edward so it's no big deal but still kinda cool. Personally, I can imagine calling my son Zuko even though I probably wont do it since it's actually not an uncommon name in Bosnia where I'm from, it's short for Zulfikar.

I like Azula a ton, and I have blue eyes, so if I had a girl with blue eyes, I might name her Azula. Also, I really like the name Asami, but I probably wouldn't name any of my kids after her as I don't like Asami as a character and it would seem weird for an American to give their kid a Japanese name.
