    So I had this name in mind for an Utau. However on the wiki there is a character with almost the exact same name (same first name, same first part of last name) but they haven't done anything with this Utau since 2013 that I could find. Would it be considered copying if I used the name I originally wanted to go with?

    Is there contact information for the creator? You should probably ask them instead of us.

    I should have thought of that XD. I think I found a facebook which is designated to the Utau type (called shastaloid) though the specific one hasn't been mentioned since July (though that was a repost of an old thing) and from then some fan art made in 2015. Other than that they've got a deactivated deviantart, so I guess I'll have to try on Facebook

    I was tagged here? Hi. @Ivy!


    I'm still an active utau user, I just rebranded a lot between then and now. So, hmu with any questions you may have.

    Edit: I have a feeling it's Sora Hoshiko you're referring to. Lots of UTAU have names similar to his, and I don't mind if the names are similar or even the same, just as long as there is a distinct difference between the designs. This applies to any of their names, though, if you're referring to anyone with the Utanen/Otone surnames, they're not even used any more. They don't even have the same given names anymore.

    @Shasta

    It was actually Storm Otone. The design I had in mind for mine is pretty different though. Thanks for answering

    Oh, wow. That's not what I was expecting. That's not even her name anymore, honestly. It's actually AQUILA now. So go for it.
