Any suggestions of names for cute, sneering Korean boys who dye their rockstar hair bright red?

This is Souldoll's Kanguk. (Okay, okay, he's my Kanguk, since Souldoll has been well and truly paid for him.) Very, very nice, this Soul Double body, though evidently all double-jointed arms are prone to flipping up into what someone cleverer than me once called "velociraptor poses." Unlike the briefly-visiting and pinheaded Souldoll Jin Woo, Kanguk's head is pretty well-proportioned to the body. The eyebrows are either hilarious or appalling, but the rest of the faceup is perfectly adequate.

I really do want to give him a Korean name, and I even went through the campus directory to look at our Korean exchange students' names . . . but, sadly, I haven't mastered the nuances of which Korean names are masculine and which are feminine. Yes, I've trawled the baby-name sites, but they're almost all plagiarized from the same source, so there's not much to choose from.

Anybody have Korean friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers?

My brother's name was Kim Tae Hoon. My uncle's was Park Me Honey- well I don't know how to spell it... but that's what it sounds like! XD;; My other uncle is San Gook(my mother being Nan Sook).

You could always call him by my brother's nickname... Mr. Tong! But that pretty much means mr. poop. XD;;;

Hah! "Mr. Tong" is tempting . . . but Tae Hoon definitely goes on the list. Your brother wouldn't mind if I stole his name, would he? And San Gook/Sanguk is a good alternative to just calling him by the mold name. Hmm, hmm, hmmm.

I still think your mother's name is THE coolest. I know you're making a Nan Sook, but I don't say I won't take the name for one of my dolls someday.

What about you? Do you have a Korean name, or only an English one? I've always wondered, but I never got around to asking. (I have so much trouble trying to remember my students' Korean names AND the English names they want to use--one name per person, guys, please! ;-)

He gorgeous. I really love his look.

The camera absolutely adores this sculpt--he looks quite a bit better in photos than I think he looks IRL, which is a first for me. Verrrrrrry innnnnnnteresting . . .

Love your trick-or-treaters!

I cant help with names ... but feel compliments are in order... what a cutie!
I really like him, he looks so real

The body is fabulous--it holds any pose, and is good to look at, too. (Though has Souldoll always done the Ken-bulge instead of anatomical detailing? I was a little taken aback, not that I'm fixated or anything . . .)

Red haired Korean Boy

I would name him Kevin. Not really, but that was the first thing that came to mind. Don't ask me why, I'm not really that fond of that name. How does he look with hair covering the eyebrows? That might give you an idea if you will want to eventually have them changed.

Tell Toshi to keep those kids under control. Dogs make the best supervisors ever.

Hugs to you and Toshi..

Re: Red haired Korean Boy

Hee, hee! Maybe there's a Korean name that kinda sounds like Kevin? And unfortunately, bangs make this particular head look geeky, so I'm stuck with the eyebrows showing, at least until I make up my mind. But I am starting to get used to them, after the initial shock.

My supervisor is now sprawled on the couch, snoring. So much for doing his canine duty!

He is so sweet (I see what you mean about the eyebrows!). I love the wig on him. The only Korean names I know are Buddhist ones - Banya? The new Souldoll body looks very nice too.

Oh, now, I really like Banya--that one just shot up to the top of the list. Tell me more about it, okay?

I've always liked Souldoll, and they do have a good thing going with the Double body. I wish I had one of the earlier Souldolls just for comparison's sake. In my fantasy life, I believe I'll be able to track down the unbelievably elusive one-off Souldoll Gunun, which came up for sale on DoA a couple of years ago at a time when I was trying to be restrained and frugal. Ptooey.

wow he looks great,love the way hes standing
....no idea on name ??

This Soul Double body is definitely great--it balances like a pro, and feels so good to handle. I wish the resin weren't quite so peachy, just because that would make the body a lot more versatile for head-swapping . . . but we can't have everything, huh?

Oh, he's lovely! But I think someone needs to knit him some sweaters! He looks cold. *grins*

*snorfle* Weeeelllll, since there are dolls in Michigan who snatch up allllll the sweaters before my boys get a chance to wear them . . . this guy will have to suffer from his case of hello!nipples for a while. He doesn't seem to mind too much, though.

I adored your pictures, BTW, even though I'm doing a monumentally bad job of keeping up with e-mail!

I have quite the resource on Korean baby names. The reason you never hear any repeats is because they try to make each name individual. Naming a child after one's relatives, living or dead, is taboo, from what I understand, Some of my favorites?

Chul Moo = iron weapon
Hwan Ji = shining wisdom
Myung Wook = clear dawn
Sang Hoon = no idea :/
Yun Tae = also no idea

Aha! Thank you so much, and I thought that was probably the case--that individuality was the goal when naming a baby. Now I'm even more interested in what the "boundaries" of name combinations might be (since I don't have a good ear for what sounds pleasant or harsh in Korean).

Come to think of it, I've had both male and female students named Seung Hee, so maybe names are more unisex than I was assuming?

And all of those are wonderful names--I'm especially fond of Hwan Ji (would work for a girl, hmmm?) . . .
