So, I'm wrapping up my current blog and I'm planning to start a new one soon, but I don't know how to name it. How did you guys get your names? Anything I come up with either sounds like a dead giveaway or very cheesy.

Hmmm. Well I arrived at Trial of Leaves by taking a name of something I found to be inspirational (House of Leaves), then combined it with the thematic events of the series (Trial). So anything that thematically links with the ideas present is good.  Name it like a pretentious art house film hahah

I would suggest linking it to the original premise as well.  SAParanormalHunters, or SAPH came from finding an acronym for a paranormal group like TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society.)  With that in mind, we wanted something that incorporated the fact that we weren't as big, and something that sounded catchy.  We came up with Solano Amateur Paranormal Hunters.  SAPH was taken on youtube, so the channel was made as SAParanormalHunters.  As for Entropy, we were talking about entropy and the inevitable heat death of the universe in the first video, so the story is that we liked talking about it so much that it sticked.

I thought about something that would draw people in. Something that slightly hints "IT'S A SLENDERSERIES", but also gets people interested in the other aspects of it. It's also the name of an assignment I had in 7th grade where I had to write a poem about trees. buuuuuuuut thats aside the point.

I knew the series was going to center around my character the entire time so I just named it after the Main Character.

TheUndecidedFive was named such because it was a joke about our characters (and our own) fates being undecided. Everything we did in the vlog was more or less spur of the moment, so the "undecided" really fit. Five because there were five main characters. 

IsWarrenDead came about because the whole premise was Lovecraft, and my favorite quote is "You fool, Warren is dead", which kind of links up to the old meme "Who was phone?". It was just a running joke between me and my cocreator.

BrokenBranches117 got its name from a few things, actually. The phrase "Broken Branches" is a reference to the Slenderman's fondness of the woods and to a plot point that hasn't been introduced yet. (HEHE.) And the 117 comes from the Halo video game series as a reference to Spartan 117, Master Chief. This number is also a recurring joke between my friends.

When are you going to post the next video on your channel? It's been awhile. I was kind of worried.

My channels name is EmeraldSky47. It was originally going to be called EmeraldSky, but that username was taken.
My favorite color is green and I like sci-fi, and one day I had a daydream where I was on a planet with a green atmosphere, an emerald sky. 4 and 7 are my favorite numbers. Put two and two together and I got EmeraldSky47. Also, it sounds like the name of a group of high school friends sci-fi film production thing. I don't know. Right down your dreams or any random thought or thing you see. Gain inspiration from your surroundings. Imagination.
Good luck.

GreySkies mainly due to the title of the film mentioned in the series (kinda like marblehornets)
The proxy channel ThePropheteer was named after our Faceless friend's name in the GS Series... and other reasons.

It's in the progress of being filmed right now, actually. We've just been having a few people leave the project, including our Slenderman actor.
