Most of us have been guilty of it before, naming a character after a Greek god or goddesses (or any name usually given to deities from other parts of the world). It’s usually done by newer or inexperienced rp’ers. But eventually that habit gets grown out of, we find more unique (or more common) names for our characters given the setting.
Cause we all know no one is actually named after gods of myth, right?
Well, I was watching this tv show on TLC during breakfast, and on the show, there was a woman named Aphrodite, and it immediately made me think about rp characters named, more usually Athena, and after other gods and goddesses.
I had to leave the room because that was something I wasn’t gonna watch.

And suddenly all the Victorias, Dianas, Venuses, Floras, Rheas, and other people with common names derived from mythology of the world burst into flames.
Their names aren’t real names. They do not exist.

Aphrodite Jones is pretty cool idk what this person’s problem is.
