Keep in mind, however, that calling a work "the Trope Namer" in the initial YKTTW write-up simply because '''you''' took the preliminary title from it (''especially'' if you are naming the {{trope}} after a character) is ''very'' presumptuous: chances are high that the troper HiveMind will disagree about whether or not the work is widely known enough to qualify. Of course, such {{trope}} proposals aren't technically ''named'' yet; the title may be subject to change in [=YKTTW=] if someone else comes up with a better title. (For the purpose of actually ''finding'' a better title, see Administrivia/NamingATrope.)

trope namer may always get its own page. If they ''are'' the Trope Namer, the trope name should reflect the difference, for example RashomonStyle. This is doubly true for characters, who must [[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame embody the trope so well]] that one could point to them and say [[FountainOfExpies "Yeah, kinda like him"]] and other {{troper}}s will immediately agree ([[OneMarioLimit without having to consult Google]] in the process).

Also, we at TVTropes don't want tropes named directly after a trope namer, since the

Various shows are [[TropeOverdosed popular]] or [[TropeMakers influential]] when it comes to {{trope}}s. One measure is how readily we name tropes from shows or other works.

'''This should not be done lightly''' and is not a badge of honor. Using trope namers lightly or as a badge of honor is Administrivia/TropeNamerSyndrome and leads to confusion, renames, and possible deletion of tropes.
