I made the near fatal mistake of asking a French guy on IRC to come up with a cool sounding name.

Haha, lucky me to meet a french/canadian several million SP into the game who took pleasure in translating what my name meant

I made an unfortunate typo mistake when I created this character and didn't notice until after I had plugged in some implants that a friend gave me so I didn't want to reroll...

People keep taking the p.iss now Crying or Very sad


It's almost as bad as when I created my character on the WoW RP server with a wonderful mass of ginger facial hair in traditional dwarf style... and then called him Red Bread by accident Sad

Everywhere I went people insisted on pointing out the mistake...

'Oi Red... don'tcha know how to spell Beard' - was what I heard all the time was very demeaning and am getting same reaction here with Gaint

My name is from Whoa... Confused
...Or was it BF2? Neutral

Perhaps it was the fact that I thought I was making a name I could change! Sad

...and then I found out that EVE isn't CS. ugh


Thank god. Wink

It actually came from BF2, buddies called me the mop, because I always cleaned up house. They'd say, just get waxed? You got Lugalled. Hence the stupid name. Laughing

This would be the second-to-last in a fairly long list of names, starting way back when with "Vindicare", moving on to "KensaiRJ", from there to "Switchblade" then "Stitcher" and finally "AngryAngryMan"

AngryAngryMan is by far and away my favourite.

I'm not a fan of my name when I selected it 8 months ago but it's far too long gone to make a new main character.

If I did, his name would have to be Slanty McGarglefist!!

Funny you metion it.. Monos was my priest from WoW (thank you random name Gen) and Blackheart was the last name of my ranger in DDO.

Was listening to a rather wicked c64 game theme remix (from Qwed.org) of The Last Ninja. And was rerolling my scrapper in CoH. Grendel was my old scrapper, hadn't deleted her at that point so needed a new name.

Lost Ninja was best I could come up with :D

Since then have used it in all my MMOs including WoW.

Sadly its pretty much the only name I have got that someone else didn't already have in EVE, in this case only one server FTL! Sad

WOW made me change this name from a druid char. I thought it fit. Have used it through multiple mmos. I think it has a place in everything..fantasy, sci fi, rl. Anyway...when Blizzard made me change I just used Spankey. Which was ok apparantly.

A few decades ago a Gallente media corp distributed a documentary about ancient earth, including a chapter about popular hobbies of the time.
As a merchandising tie-in another branch of that corp sold a PortableCluster version of WoW that became very popular for a few months.

After that it was all the fashion to give babies names from those ancient days used in that old game.

Don't forget that in an age with uncounted tens of billions of humans and parents trying to find individual names that aren't already used by hundreds of millions they get ever more desperate for inspiration.



So at what point in human history does this happen? I can think of quite a few names that are stupidly common, and people will still give the name to their kids.

I know three people named John Smith, and they aren't related to each other.Shocked

I actually made this name for WoW. I didn't want to use my usual name, because I decided it didn't fit for human priest. Now i have retired most of my old names and use Dappen. Though for CS, I still use RustySTaple (caps are important)

<3

Is it bad I named my Hurricane, "Pink Dress?"

One time I made a trial account to WoW. I made a Night Elf hunter and named it '***olas'. There he danced naked for hours while I ratted in lowsec. My trial didn't last very long.

I found my char's surname quite funny after quitting WoW. But now it feels like an tatooed name of your first girlfriend ... after being married to a different woman for 10 years.

i was gonna use my sexy elf name but i didnt want a bunch of space geeks hitting on me


Quite right Ethereal (may i call you Etheral? I know it's rather presumptious but one rarely encounters someone who is so obviously destined for greatness as you are.) A sexy elf name would attract entirely the wrong kind of attention from these space geeks. While your chosen name conjures just the right amount of enchanting ennui and poetic mystery.

I spent ages thinking about what a really good space name would be, my high school physics lessons came to mind and RedShift yes, thta would be great, its spacey, and kinda means im moving fast, and a bit hard to see.

Well damn somebody was already redshift so i had to put these numbers in my name! now i didnt realise there was a stigma to it at the time, but if i had it to do over i would have gone with RedShift as a surname, like "Lightning RedShift" or something...

I used Endrin in Earth and Beyond, but when I came here Endrin was already taken, so I picked Erdain instead. I haven't liked my name since then; would would pay 100m isk just to get it changed (I didn't know you could surname, you couldn't in EnB).

But alas, while playing EnB I also found out that Endrin is apparently a banned chemical, so it works for Sci-fi.

I was scraping for a name when I came up with mine...

I was sitting here, thinking eve was full of mature people that liked "eve-esque" or something names, like, realisticy. (Boy was I wrong on some people) Anyways, I sat here, staring at my character creation screen for several minutes unable to think of anything, then it hit me.

:o Went with the scientific name of my favorite animal, seems to work fairly well at being "original" and fitting in without being too much of a hassle to make.

Also, I seem to **** a fair bit of people off when it comes to saying my first name all the time.


Edit: lol typos...

My name.... well... the X's I only added because someone else took the original... (DAMN YOU!!!!)

Anyway, i've used Vulkan in many games back to when I played my first online game (rainbow six) and I like it. It even translates to Edge in German!

Though I must admit now, I wish I never put the damn X's on their... it just degrades it, I didnt know you could put a space in your name to put a surname in EVE until later, and since you can't change your name, and my character is over a year old now, i'm not re-rolling. Embarassed

The star trek puns are annoying because at the time I thought of it (didnt know it existed at the time, and I didnt know about those damn Vulcans from star trek either!) I thought it was completely original... Oh well, atleast I can pretend the X's are just my surname, a surname that starts with X and ends with x.... yes....

As for using it in WoW, well, I only ever signed up for the trial, and pretty much dropped it there, I forget what name I even chose Laughing

I have but one thing to say about this topic. It can be summed up here.

ElweSingollo
The Higher Standard
Posted - 2007.01.12 04:49:00 - [60]
 

Well my name is about as far removed from space as it can get though eve was my first MMO it is taken from The Silmarillion (ever so slightly a Tolkien fan Very Happy). Ironically when I origanally subbed Elwe Singollo wasn't available so I did it without the space however there is now a newer character called Elwe Singollo that last time I checked had "Important I am not ElweSingollo of Starlancers" in his Bio Laughing.

Anyway long story short Elwe is an Elven King from a mythical european pre-history so yeah just a tad removed from space.
