I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

That’s what they get for having a stupid name.

:-)

For a long time I tried to stick to a theme so that in every game I played, I had nearly the same name. Mostly because I'm bad at remembering names. Lately though, someone else had figured out my schtick, so I had to get creative. Now I really have trouble telling people who my characters are in games.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

I somehow choose something clever in the games I play. Well "clever" for me. 


 


My character name has to make sense in the world he is in.


 


Some recent ones:


DCUO: Protagonist, Antagonist, Protestor, Solution.


SWTOR: Castor, Pollux and other star names. Star Wars ... doesn't need further explanation. 


 


I usually tend to ask how people come up with names if it interest me and almost always try to ignore the types listed in your article.

This I can definitely agree with. When I see these types I add them immediately to ignore and go on my way.

 

I'd hoped to get into the thread before the "Jeez it's just a game" and "When you pay my subscription you can tell me what names to use" people, but I was far, far too late.

 

Also, are there any AAA MMOs out there that enforce their naming policies? I haven't seen any in some time (even on RP servers). I stated in another thread regarding immersion that the only way I think this issue wouldn't come up is if you force all players to use a random name generator (and even then they can still possibly be abused).

I can almost use hours just to come up with a name. Normaly I deside how I'm gonna play my char. Is it a healer class spec'ed for dps, is it a ranger, tank what ever. Then I search "The Silmarillion" language section for words that match my style and combine them into a fitting name.

I have even chosen a name and played for hours, just to realise I play differently than I wanted. Then I rerole the same char with a new name. (hell no im paying for name change).

The only time I used 2 sec to come up with a name was in Champions Online. There I used hours designing my char, and the name was obivius when I was done.

All thoes stupid names people come up with, shows me they just dont care about the settings of the game.

I just wish players would stick to names that sounded real, twatathon names like he mentioned are for preteens. Grow up.

Chill out.  It's just satire.

Very funny Coyote but I have to add one to the list.  People who choose political figures for names.  I have RonPaul on my server for Rift.  All he wants to do is start political conversations which gets everyone going.  Half of which are probably not old enought to vote anyway.  I play MMOs to escape from the real world so STFU!

Yeah, this is the way I feel most generally.  I have a guildmate however who will rant on and on for hours in voice-chat about other people's names.  It just drives him crazy.  <shrugs>


The ones that really get to me are the people not just using known copyrighted names, but mixing names from other genres.  For example, there was a character, in Lord of the Rings Online, that I ran across on numerous occasions.  A female of the Captain class named Kathryn Janeway, with the obligatory herald pet named Chakotay...


I reported that loser everytime I saw 'em.


Great article as always Mr. C


Anyone and everyone can feel free to disagree with any or all of my opinions and observations whenever I rarely post them; it doesn't bother me one bit. Just know that I'll likely never respond to YOUR disagreement or personal attack, because I know better than to argue with idiots, especially upon internet Forums. See what I did there? -- Dinidain
