"For example, let's take Northern River's Loose Cultivator. 'Northern River' is his real dao name, while 'Loose Cultivator' is just a title. It's not different than 'Mister' or 'Miss'. Once he advances to the Sixth Stage, he would change it to True Monarch Northern River. It's the same for the other fellow daoists, Profound Principle, Snow Wolf, Copper Trigram, and Tian Tiankong are their dao names while Great Master, Cave Lord, Immortal Master, and Island Master their titles. Amongst the names you mentioned earlier, only Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless Mad Saber has a four-word dao name."
Venerable White gently clapped his hands while speaking and said, "If you really want a four-word dao name, you can just follow in Fellow Thrice Reckless' footsteps. For example, how about Thrice Song Tyrannical Saber? Hmm this dao name really seems to suit you!"
"No, absolutely not!" Song Shuhang shouted. He absolutely didn't want such a vulgar and crude dao name! No way, nope! At the very least, he wanted a refined and elegant dao name!
Song Shuhang was a university student that loved literature. If placed in ancient times, he would be a distinguished scholar! Therefore, he absolutely didn't want to have a dao name that reminded him of a bandit wielding the saber.
"Haha." Venerable White laughed and stretched his hand out, putting several bayberries in his mouth, his expression satisfied.
"Pew, pew, pew, pew"
Afterward, Venerable White also added, "Actually, I don't think that four-word dao names are that good. I feel that one-word dao names are the best, it's very easy to remember them."
For example, Venerable White's dao name had only one word in it, 'white'.
Extremely simple, just like a white sheet of paper!
But if he had to take a one-word dao name...
Song Shuhang pondered. "A one-word name Scholar? Sword?
True Monarch Scholar? True Monarch Sword?
For some reason, they also sound quite good.
"..." Venerable White.
Senior White sighed and said, "Little friend Song Shuhang, you are someone that has grown up while receiving the influence of the Internet and thus have a vast knowledge. But how come the size of your vocabulary is unexpectedly so small? Is it possible that you can't think of anything else that is not related to scholars or swords?"
Song Shuhang replied, "After pondering for a moment, I came to the conclusion that these two words are the ones that conform the most to my ideal image of a cultivator."
Venerable White shook his head and said, "If you really can't think of a good dao name, you might as well just use Thrice Song Tyrannical Saber."
"No, absolutely not! Senior White, this dao name is the only one I won't ever use!" Song Shuhang called out he didn't want to turn into a second Senior Thrice Reckless. It was such a death-seeking behavior.
Perhaps because Song Shuhang shouted too loudly, the faraway seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group turned their heads toward him.
Fairy Dongfang lightly stepped on the water and came over. "A dao name? Is little friend Shuhang looking for a dao name?"
Although she was merely stepping on the water, when it was Fairy Dongfang doing it, it was as pleasing as seeing a dance.
Song Shuhang nodded and said, "Yes!"
"Hehe, I always thought that Stressed by a Mountain of Books was your dao name. It seems it wasn't the case!" Fairy Dongfang said with a smile.
"That was just my online username and nothing more!" Song Shuhang said powerlessly. All the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group had memorized the name 'Stressed by a Mountain of Books'. Such being the case, wouldn't they keep calling him like that even after he had chosen a dao name?
No, I can't let that happen!
I have to choose a dao name as soon as possible! I have to settle this matter by the end of the day!
Northern River's Loose Cultivator also calmly came over and said with a smile, "Little friend Shuhang, which type of dao name do you want to use?"
"There are different types of dao names?" Song Shuhang replied in puzzlement.
"While I was bored and had nothing to do, I categorized all the dao names I could think of," Northern River's Loose Cultivator said with a smile.
In the Nine Provinces Number One Group, Northern River's Loose Cultivator was the always online holy warrior and would always be the first one to reply to whatever question his fellow daoists asked. He was the same in real life, always in the frontline to reply to others as soon as possible.
Song Shuhang humbly asked for advice. "Senior Northern River, do tell."
Venerable White and Fairy Dongfang also curiously looked at Northern River's Loose Cultivator.
Northern River's Loose Cultivator started his captivating explanation. "Such being the case, I'll quickly introduce to you all the types of dao names. Along with the times advancing, dao names aren't as inflexible as they used to be in the past, and there aren't that many rules and conventions anymore. Now, let's talk about the first category of dao names. The dao names belonging to this category can be summed up as place-related dao names. In this case, cultivators that are the masters of a certain placeor just practice therewill directly use the name of the place as their dao name."
Song Shuhang's brain quickly operated, and he replied immediately, "Like Senior Yellow Mountain?"
Northern River's Loose Cultivator nodded and said, "Exactly. Senior Yellow Mountain has a dao name of this type. Other similar dao names are Sword Immortal Glorious Mountain, Scholar Cave Lake, True Monarch Dragon God Island, and so on. Actually, my own dao name also belongs to this category."
"The dao names of this category seem rather simple!" Song Shuhang pondered for a moment. If he had to use the name of a place as a dao name"In that case, my dao name should be something like Daoist Priest Wenzhou? Scholar Wenzhou? Cultivator Wenzhou, and so on?"
But all of them sounded rather strange.
"If you want to use the name of a place, you don't have to limit yourself to 'Wenzhou'. You can use the name of a village, a mountain, a river, or a well as your dao name. If you wish, you can even choose bigger places such as cities and provinces. You don't have any limitation whatsoever," Northern River's Loose Cultivator said.
Song Shuhang pondered for a moment and said, "In other words, I can call myself Daoist Priest China, Scholar Zhejiang, Wenzhou's Loose Cultivator, or reducing the scale even further, Daoist Priest Baijing Street?"
"Pew, pew, pew, pew~" Venerable White.
Venerable White couldn't help but crack a joke. "At this point, you might as well call yourself Daoist Priest China, Zhejiang Province, Wenzhou City, Baijing Street!"
"..." Fairy Dongfang.
"..." Northern River's Loose Cultivator.
"..." A certain monster named Phoenix Slayer that just regained his senses.
Song Shuhang quickly said, "Senior White, please stop joking. I'm not applying for a residence permit! Moreover, this dao name sounds very strange if read all together! If I use this dao name while introducing myself to someone else, it wouldn't even feel as though I was telling them my dao name but my mailing address instead!"
Fairy Dongfang held her chin and said, "Actually, I don't think that it's too bad. It would feel rather intimidating to shout aloud a long dao name such as 'Daoist Priest China, Zhejiang Province, Wenzhou City, Baijing Street'. Moreover, if you need to receive an express delivery, you can just write down your dao name instead of your given name and address."
"No, absolutely not!" Song Shuhang said firmly.
"Little friend Song Shuhang is really picky," Venerable White said.
"It's not me being picky! I just don't want a mailing address-type dao name!"
"Cough. In that case, let me introduce the second category of dao names," Northern River's Loose Cultivator continued. "The second category of dao names consists in cultivators using their 'special skills' as dao names. Such dao names are rather popular nowadays. For example, Seven Lives Talisman, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber, Medicine Master, and even that shady fortune teller all have a dao name of this type. If they excelled in the field of talismans, they used talismans as their dao name. If they excelled in saber techniques, they used saber as their dao name... and so on. They basically used what they were good at as their dao name."
After hearing this much, Song Shuhang fell into deep contemplation...
