that is why you need a good name book ..like Elthalerod the unready, or Harold Bluetooth, Maximus Minor  Old English names can be a lot of fun,  and are rarely  used.

Been there lol. I have changed servers in games to get the name I want. 

Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor.

lol D: dunno why, but naming the char is so important to me... often times i've spent more time on making my chars and naming them, than playing them.

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

I have a pretty short list of Go To character names. If I can't use those names in some way, I find I'm much less invested in the characters, as if all my avatars are an extended family of adventurers, who have dispersed across all dimensions in search of loot.

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

I used to care allot about naming my characters but for the simple reason shared above I would rather play than die trying to find the right name. Now I just select random and tweak the name to suit seems to work. Would be nice to get the wish list names but hey all in all its just a game.

Very Good depiction all the same :)

More than once, I've been pleasantly surprised to get the name I wanted, only to realize a few days later that I made a spelling mistake.

Nice one, but was the toon designed just right for a Saints Row MMO?

It's always fun bumping into 6 guys on the same zone one after another named:

Rand al'Thor

Randal Thor

Randy Thoral

etc, etc, really makes games immersive

I think that MMO's should change the way players are identified. Like, every character has an ID such as "TF567H8", that is used when tracking the player, identifying or finding him, while making it possible for two players to have the same name without confusion or random numbers at the end.

You think that's bad.  Sandric is a name I have used in MMO's, forums and FPS's for almost 15 years now.  It originally was a name I randomly made up almost 20 years ago for a thief for a AD&D game my cousins were running for all the kids at my grandparents ranch as we stayed there a few weeks during the summer.  Now, unless I am in a beta I tend to not be able to use it as it is often taken.  SInce I have been using it as long as I have, I tend to believe its others leeching off it.  Heck I even have taken to using Sandrics (or Sandric's) Death on a few games/forums cuz of the irritation.  My goto wizard name Zanzopan isn't as often used nor is my Captain/Minstrel/Healer/etc Sutton, but they also sometimes pop us as used.

Lol - that was great. There is so much going on in that comic with the shirt, pics on the wall, shaving, plus he can't think of a name. That's the least of his problems.

I've seen that guy in the comic before. He was on these very forums complaining about how easy the games have become. He also spent his life savings on Neverwinter packs and beat it one day. He said " Neverwinter was so easy I beat it in one day" Then he rolled this forest rogue and ate a hot pocket.

I admit, I obsess over naming my characters in every game I play. But this is because I like to use the same name across different games, so it annoys me to no end when I put in the familiar name and get that hateful message "Name is not available". Lol, then I spend up to another 20 minutes trying different spelling variations until something takes.

This is why I usually come up with character ideas and possible names in advance. No matter how original you think you are chances are that someone has already thought about that one special name you've got your heart set on. Being prepared with a couple of alternates makes things a lot easier once you're finally ready to enter a name.

I have two files of names, one male and one female. Both have over a 100 names. That may not sound impressive until you consider that I only add names to the lists when none of them are available and I eventually (uuughhh) find a new one to claim and add to a list.
