What are some weird fictional customs, traditions and more from your fictional world?
This is related to your story of course.
In my story, Tales of Alterra, the only “weird” custom is this one.
The First Ones are an alien race who completely immortal but still age like a normal human being only slower. However, when a baby from the First Ones is born, they are given a false temporary name. This temporary name is just given to them, so they won’t call the baby “it” once the infant grows up. Yet when it reaches adolescence there is a special day called Name Day where the teenage First One decides to select a name of their very own. The process of choosing their own name is different for each of the First One races. Still, the teenager chooses a name or sometimes (which is rare) is given a name. Th e name has a very special meaning that also grants the teenager different abilities and strength.
Depending on the name that they chose, the name itself can alter their future, personality, characteristic, and anything else.
What about you though?
