How does Tomino come up with these names?

Why would anyone name their child "Cancer" or "Meme"?

I feel like we all gloss over what a cluster fuck of a name Char Aznable is just because we're all used to it. It's fucking stupid, and Casual Rem Deikun or Quattro Bajeena aren't any better, but Aznable seems to get a free pass.
>>
>>19126574
Bound doc is a misspelling of the Japanese word for Hound Dog. I guess cause the MS is slightly Anubis like? They just switched where some lines were, it's basically like calling it the Dound Hog or something.
>>
Read a spiritual book, heathen
>>
>>19126574
I remember how old captchas would occasionally barf out a very Tomino sounding name.
>>
>>19127046
Because Char’s name is a reference to Charles Aznavour, so we have a reason for the weirdness
>>
>>19126574
do you think he named every robot himself?
>>
>>19126574
Japanese has a very limited number of possible syllables and English has lots, so many words that sound perfectly good to them like Zugokku or Biiaran will become goofy as FUCK in English.

Add to that how translators keep fucking up transliteration in the most hilarious ways resulting in equally goofy spelling and you get gold like this.

No excuse for Quattro Bajeena tho, Tomino is just weird.

How do you guys go about naming things? What kind of guidelines do you follow?
And if you are going to say "just think of something cool", then how do you do that? How do you define what's cool and what isn't? I struggle a lot with names and this would be very helpful.

I take a word that vaguely fits what the concept of the mech, and then I fuck with it to make it nonsense and Tomino-y
>Agreer (pronounced more like Agrir) - from Agrias, because I imagined it as a loyal, knightly sort of Grunt MS
>Dobe - as in Adobe, a very basic and versatile MS still in use in the private sector decades after it was retired from military use
>Vespant - derived from vesper, an evening prayer, to tie in with the spirituality of the character that uses them

No one is mentioning the Skittle Squad. Shit like Bring Stabity blows everything Tomino named out of the water.

Bring Stabbity is the best name in all of fiction

Tomino names are like Tomino women, everyone accuses him of all sorts but nearly all other Gundam fiction is x1000 worse on both fronts.

>>19127664
Have an entire database of potentially cool-sounding words which i sort by meanings and syllable patterns, and then combine using stressed syllables and vowel qualities as a guideline. For example, names with both front vowels (ee, i, ay) and back vowels (u, oo, aw) tend to sound more powerful and energetic. It is a good idea to have stressed syllables separated by one or two unstressed ones - that's how ancient poets writing epic poems did it.

In case combining cool sounding words proves too tacky, i also have two constructed languages as backup.
>>
>>19127227
Yeah I'm gonna be thinking of that cute creature every time when they say A Baoa Qu now
>>
>>19127227
Interesting. But it's probably something Borges made up, since both sources he gives are fake. He liked to write about fictional stuff.
>>
isnt there a guy whose name is effectively "marshmallow"?
and Halleluiah Baptism?
>>
A good way to come up with Tomino-like names is just taking normal Japanese names & translating them literally. Example
Yoshiyuki Tomino -> 富野 由悠季,
富 -Wealth, Rich
野 -Plains, Field

由 - (A) Reason
悠 - Distance, Leisure
季 - Seasons (of the year)
So all together now
