Hippie is a person associated with the so-called 1960’s counterculture, a youth movement that started in the United States and quickly spread all over the world, where new communities were formed, ones that were very much against the system.

Hippies listened to various psychedelic music, embraced drugs, and completely embraced the sexual revolution, and as such have shown a great tendency to visit new places and try out new things, without worrying about any potential issues.

That makes them ideal candidates for traveling, where many would say the journey is much more important than the destination, and such a view on life allows them to meet other like-minded people, with names like Perry, Kyley, Dakota, and Bastien.

Freedom to choose your own life, abstinence from any kind of law and potential oppression, nature, peace, love, and unity are some of the values a lot of hippies consider important, and if it was up to them, most would prefer to live off-grid, in an independent and rather isolated self-sustaining community. Think about what kind of parents the character has, what life lessons did they learn from them, the type of person they grew up to be, where would they like to visit, and think of a name worthy of the freedom they believe everyone in life should have.
