    Naming a char....

    I don't know about you, but I've always tried to give my chars clever names... How annoying is it to have all your names rejected..
    This has gotta be the best I've found for my new wolf druid.. It's perfect!

    Cynocephali (Google it)

    1. The cynocephali were dog headed
    2. They possessed powerful jaws and talons
    3. They were four cubits in height, which is roughly seven and a half feet or higher
    4. They possessed wolf-like senses
    5. They were savage warriors on the field of battle
    6. They were highly intelligent
    7. They were fur covered
    8. They used growls, barks, whines and howls for communication
    9. They lived in the more mountainous regions and lived in caves
    10. They hunted and wore animal skins for clothing
    11. They used weapons, such as javelins, bows, spears, clubs, slings, and swords
    12. The cynocephali used tools and knew of fire
    13. In many accounts, they breathed fire, although this could be an exaggeration
    14. The cynocephali were shapeshifters
    15. The cynocephali were flesh eaters, who typically ate raw flesh. In many cases, they were even said to eat the flesh of fallen soldiers on the battlefield.

    Well, I think it's cool.. And no, there is no point to this thread, I'm just happy... :)

    I love naming my characters. I'm using all of my characters names as ways to promote animal rights, like I started a Druid the other day and named him StopAnimalTests (google it:azn:), but then deleted him because I didn't want to play a druid. But I love the name so much I might just remake him after I'm done building my MF char (whose name is Meat_isMurder).

    Yesterday I was doing Baal runs and every new game this guy would call me "cptnqueer". If my names can make people feel insecure and piss them off, all the better!

    The name definitely fits the character... almost too well.

    I just called my wolf SitBoobooSit. (As you can see, when I can't think of something clever or ironic, I just pick something utterly retarded.)

    My favorite PvMer names right now are my Blizzballer, Chionophobia (fear of snow) and my WW/Howl IK Barb, Sound_Garden.

    Every season I reserve the name (or some variation of) Ludicrous_Speed for a lvl 39 'Harmony' Zon, but I never seem to get around to making her (can never get my hands on enough decent ed/ias jewels).

    I usually go along with the same idea PT. However, at times I just name it after something that is laying around or the 1st thing that comes into mind. Like 'We Deliver' or 'Crimson Bob' :tongue: . Pk's are a differnt story, ok well maybe not :azn:

    I name characters generally after songs, Berserk manga characters, or a theme.

    All my chars from now on will be food-related. I don't know why...but one word names > all. A pk named after a spice would be funny:

    xxx was slain by paprika.

    thinking about my current chars, it seems that the paladins have the better names atm ...

    The freezealot is called BrassMonkey.
    The charger is called Ioniser (geddit?).
    The avenger is called ManCalledHorse (slightly obscure, but logical)

    All my barbarians used to called variations of Barbie, or Ugly. I really like my frenzy barb, who is called UglyPorker.

    My only attempt at a melee assassin was called LeighBruce (was quite pleased with that name at the time.

    I agree - choosing a suitable char name is not only difficult, but important.

    Being slain by paprika would be frustrating indeed! Maybe I'll make a pk soon:

    xxx was slain by a_bunny.

    Paprika (obviously) was taken...but 'Seasoning' wasn't!

    XXX was slain by Seasoning.

    Also grabbed the name Table-Salt

    Does FreshGroundPepper fit?

    What's funnier: KosherSalt or TableSalt?

    The problem I see with the seasonings is finding something that's not too obscur and also cannot be contrued as somthing sexual:

    Cumin (potentially sexual)
    Corriander (obscur, not funny)
    DryRub (definitely sexual)
    Parsley, Basil, etc. (not as good as Paprika)

    If Spinach wasn't taken before this latest scare it definitely has been by now. What about other foodborne illnesses:

    E-coli
    Salmonella
    Botulism
    or just plain FoodPoisoning

    Trust me, I checked for Spinach a long time ago! I have Cumin(lvl80 necro). Any other suggestions of spices are welcome...I may just go spice-related, not food.

    Thrasher -> Frenzy barb
    Orbist -> Orb (obviously)
    ShockItClean -> Tesladin

    SmokedSalmon -> anythin with fire
    GarlicClove -> cleric or other Pally
    SpicyCurry -> curry can go with anything...
    SwissCheese -> fire sorc on europe...

    the possibilities are endless...
