-la or -wa?
« on: May 07, 2011, 05:18:02 AM »

What determines whether u should have a -la or -wa at the end of ur name? like of course right now i have -wa but i'm beginning to think with an 'a' at the end of my name it should be -la.

I'm pretty sure that if your name ends in a vowel it's -la, I just go by what sounds right =] I don't really like the way that either sounds with an a the end(the repetive vowels are wierd), in extras Tally uses -La with Aya.  Neisha-wa sounds better, but yeah its prolly -la.

In Bogus to Bubbly  it says the guidelines for the names...

If a name has a L in it you add -wa

if a name has no la add -la

so Skylar= Skylarwa
Lizzeh-wa would work but i tink Neisha-la is how yours shud be

Skylar is right. And the only reason I used -wa instead of -la, was because it sounded too much like Kayla.

King-la sounds cool. That could be translated to Ryan-la, or Ryanne-la. The name Ryan (Feminine: Ryanne) comes from the "Irish King." Therefore, that is the meaning.
