chromer one
Posted - 2007.04.22 17:32:00 - [121]

Few years ago i was part of group that wrote cyberpunk-genre larp wich was based a singapore. One of the gangs in slums where people didnt have any rights was called chromers as they were gun dealers and kind of speedboat gang with chromed decorations.

I eded adding the "one" to the end as i tought this would be just practice character but i ended to Finfleet and no way gona scrap this anymore.

Babylon 5. Pretty much chose it cause it had a nice ring to it.

Had this handle since they started cable syndication of the show on Sci-Fi in '99, so its been with me for a while.

Ent for short works best nowadays. I've seen a few other Entil'zhas ingame as well. Laughing

Elysium is the name I usually use but in EVE I couldnt use it because of Elysium constellation in Curse Crying or Very sad Stole it from a friend that came up with it.

Tekka is one of the names I would use when I would hack in FPS game. Surprised

I'm a huge fan of Calvin and Hobbes (miner alt is Hobbes Firenze), the surname...well it was one of those random things I pulled out of the grey matter. My gf later informed me it was the name of the centaur in Harry Potter or something...people always message me asking me if I'm from Firenze, Italy...course not..good ol Texas xD

My name has a Firefly reference in it.

Also, first name means "Bad" in Spanish. Last name means "Bad" in Russian.

Originally, however, it was an abbriviation of Malcolm Ploxevicus... but hey, i like how it turned out.

Coudln't think of one so decided to let the computer decide. I wrote a quick program that at random changes consonants within an input string.

Posted - 2007.04.23 05:16:00 - [135]

The names of all 6 of my chars are just made up off the top of my head. These are:

Kylar Renpurs (Minmataar)
J'nar Meetrich (Amarr)
Jeramon Castro (Gallente)
Taila Nhrodda (Caldari)
Nilka Uthaan (Caldari)
Jmanis Catharg (Caldari)

Although I dont know how many times people have thought Jmanis Catharg is a mispelling on my half of Carthage I mean,, why would I name a character after a civilisation??

Dr Qu
Ginnungagaps Rymdfarargille
Posted - 2007.04.23 08:22:00 - [142]

My name comes from the fact that I am a large Star Trek fan. When I made this character, I was watching one of the TNG episodes featuring Q. The Dr comes from a theme 3. We were three friends that did character and all of us are Dr's. I added the u so that it would not be too obvious I named him after Q.

I never thought to use a nick name so I used my real name.
Then after a couple years I came to realize that that all you freaks now knew my real name so I sold the character. Now once in a while I see myself waundering about.

Kinda freaky.

I'm a fan of the books by Peter F Hamilton so used a few of the characters there for inspiration.

Due twice misunderstanding the mechanics.

Made a proper character spending some time to come up with decent name. A few days after figure one can make free trial-hauler alt, hastily giving him a random crap name.

Realise that the trial alt has more a lot SPs, and better ships available, so keep playing him instead. And when I eventually figured high charisma is not that good for pure gunman, it was too late.

a crappy hauler alt

It's a variant of my real first name in Elvish. Researched it years back after the first LotR film came out and I was looking for a new name to use in games I play.

Flash Landsraad

My surname is Gordon and a lot of people call me Flash in rl as a nickname.

Landsraad is from the Dune books.

Gladia Horusthu
Ordo Pondera
Posted - 2007.04.23 09:58:00 - [148]

First name came from some geneology work I'd been doing, and for some reason "Gladia" just wouldn't get out of my mind when I started this account. The "Horusthu" was from me trying to find a Gallente-sounding surname without looking at lists of agents.

I have had a long string of characters, and all of them have been rooted largely in the mixed up linguistics of New Eden.
