Stark and Starke are predominantly German surnames; in the German language Stark means "strong" or "powerful"

The Vermilion bird is one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations. According to Wu Xing, the Taoist five-elemental system, it represents the fire-element, the direction south, and the season summer correspondingly. Thus it is sometimes called the Vermilion bird of the South (南方朱雀, Nán Fāng Zhū Què). It is known as Zhuque in Chinese, Suzaku in Japanese, Jujak in Korean and Chu Tước in Vietnamese. It is described as a red bird that resembles a pheasant with a five-colored plumage and is perpetually covered in flames.

The name is derived from the word lancea - the Roman auxiliaries' javelin or throwing knife; although according to the OED, the word may be of Iberian origin. Also compare longche, a Greek term for lance.

A lance in the original sense is a light throwing spear, or javelin. The English verb to launch "fling, hurl, throw" is derived from the term (via Old French lancier), as well as the rarer or poetic to lance. The term from the 17th century came to refer specifically to spears not thrown, used for thrusting by heavy cavalry, and especially in jousting. A thrusting spear which is used by infantry is usually referred to as a pike.
Lance, member of the Kanto Elite Four, serves as the Johto League Champion in Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver.

    I like Lance or Stark, and the obvious Livewire, though I totally understand wanting to play around with the name changes haha. Anyway, the Asian-y ones just don't seem very you imo. Stark is, while I know who it is I'm just going to speak name-wise, is very direct like yourself. Lance fits that too, as well as being a bit of a commanding type of name. I don't know...it just kind of demands respect in a way.

    I love naming so I'm probably taking this too seriously. Aizen and Suzako just don't really seem to fit you (though idk what they're from) and Amaterasu seems too feminine for you too. But whatever you go with, I'm sure you'll bring life to it!

    Lance ≥ Stark > Livewire > Aizen > Suzaku > Amaterasu

    You don't seem like the type of person who would use Japanese oriented usernames, honestly. You're cultured, but centered towards your own culture and I think Lance, Stark, and Livewire emphasis that.

    I wouldn't mind seeing you as Kal-El, personally, hehe.

    But, if I had to choose, I'd go with Stark because winter is coming.

    I don't see you using an oriental nickname, tbh.

    Out of those three, Stark is the most I like for you.

    I also agree with Fariy, Kal-El would be very cool too.

    Out of what you listed, Stark would be good given you're someone who likes superhero movies and you give off the "strong" impression.
