Help choosing the character name and the game name!


(Please vote the name/names that you like)

We're working on a classic platformer game. The main platform is iOS. This will publish for windows, MAC OS and android Devices too.

We are designing levels now.
We need help to choose the name for main character and the name of the game!

I think it would be good to use the name of main character in game's name:
example: Lucy's Adventures, Amy Dream Land, etc

It is our first platformer and first serious game! so we stick to classic rules of platformer games, we added a few things though (double jump, a few new enemies, etc). the main way to kill is jump on enemies (like mario)

The enemies have doll style. I think this style can help us choose a
unique story and name.

1. A devil change all animals to little doll devils, and we should help
them and beat the big devil...

2. Ava (the girl) became a grown woman and leave his witch doll, so the witch doll
want to revenge and change all animals to dolls that attack you ...

It has 3 environment: grainfield (should change to jungle), Ice and Cave. each has 8 level 1 boss level and 1 bonus level.
It has 9 enemies (some of them are exclusive for some environments)
It has about 10 obstacles.
and some mechanics like elevators, portal etc.

The problem is that our mother language is not english, so we can't find out that is a name OK or not. So I want your help guys
(I would like a new and unique name too)

You can play a test level:

(I will upload more levels with new enemies as soon as I get them)

What name/names do you suggest?

This game looks like my Niece's favorite book series Dora. And Dora's Adventure.

So I vote for Dora unless there are trademark issues.

Thanks, but I can't use trademark names.

Choose a name that is marketable and represents the game well. Same with the character name.

Game Name: Ayga's Quest
Character name: Ayga

That' just a suggestion though...

If you have a story behind the game, choose the name match your game's story. My suggestion is Satome's Story

Satome's Story sounds boring though. You want to have the best, eye-catching title because you're competing against so many apps. Something that would hook you in and make you think about wanting to play it. I mean, Satome's Story would be good if the app icon was stunning and eye-catching.
