Is it common for alter to base names on video games, while not directly being that character? My alter and I chose names Haori & Susato from Gyakuten Saiban because, they are cute characters 😊 and I am not sure how common this is!

    yes! i have an alter who named herself after a fictional character, but she isnt that character at all

    Yep! We have a Sparrow alter (Fable II, a videogame) She kinda looks like her but is nothing like her at all nor does she have source memories. We also have an alter named Alice from Alice: Madness Returns who doesn't have source memories or look like her, but acts similarly and shares her name. I feel like alters can be "character flavored" as in, take inspiration but not fully envelope every aspect of that character. :)
