Draughn the Warrior.

I based him on my Diablo II characters: Draughn-Horgan a Barbarian and Draughn-Khan a Druid, brothers separated by clan wars.

i had a female mage named faile... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />
and now i have a warrioress named aviendha.
where do i get my ideas? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

when i played diablo i had two females (forget what they were, i think one was an assasain and one was probably a rogue or something) their names were sokura and serrano, two characters from a comic book i was going to make but never got around to it. both my own invention, although i have seen sokura used in other places.

been Jurak since '85
long story...
but any character that allowed me to name it always ended up with that <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
why do i always want to put the second "h" in charachter?
see........ <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ouch.gif" alt="" />
oh yeah....i once used Athlon cuz that's what it said
on my computer's mouse pad and i didn't want to use jurak
so i looked around my room for an idea and lo and behold......
Athlon was invented for a short stint of murder and pillage,
but i like jurak better, <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />
so Athlon took a long hike off a short pier
and has never been seen till this day!

RIP Athlon! ya weakling-loser!
all he ever did was die anyway <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

oh...i tried "name" once.....till i knew what the heck i was doing <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ouch.gif" alt="" />

one last one....i think..
i tried "dork once but......it was too dorky! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

one more thing......it's true
u snooze u lose
(remembers back to a few days ago when he thought it would be <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" /> to have a page just like this one, but i would have called it "What's in a name?")
kind of like a name history how'd you get your name and why.

I picked "Neithan" for my male warrior. (A cookie for the person who recognizes this name.)

My female mage was named Nemistria. No meaning, no source, except that it has roots in Forgotten Realms female elven names.

If I play a survivor and it's female, I'm going to name her Thuringwethil. (Again, a cookie for the person who recognizes this one.)

Túrin Turambar, Son of Húrin, Lord of Dor-lómin, and Morwen, and brother of Lalaith and Nienor.
When he fled Doriath after he named himself outlaw he named himself Naithan 'The Wronged' while he dwelt among the Gaurwaith.

This probably will not come as a shock, but I usually use 'Raze', and have since my brother bought a Nintendo game console quite some time ago. Some of the RPGs let you put in your own names.... up to 5 whole characters. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

I have used Wraith and the less imaginative Shadow for thief / assassin characters, and Crom for barbarians.


raze (verb)
To subvert from the foundation; to level to the ground; destroy; demolish; overthrow; ruin

Celerity for my caster. I just like the way the word sounds, and thought it made sense for a high dexterity caster.

But in other games I have appeared as
Sorrowful (enchanter)
Branwyn (cleric)
Sonnett (bard)
Babbette (Druid)
Dark Rapture (Paladin)

so many, I can't remember. Why did I mention the ones from other games? Because, I think names are COOL. Naming charaters and creating them tends to be my favorite part of most RPG's. (Okay, you can laugh at me now...) I loved this thread...and really enjoyed reading about other people names. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
I have also used the name Lan for my warrior man, and Eden for my Warrior girl, forgot what my female mage was, probably Nynanieve or somethying like that.
When I was a small infant, back in the day of plain Nintendo, and crappy pc's. The first kind of RPG I played was Zelda, I remeber my cousin used his name and age.
PAULGUARD13. After he relised everyon said, "Hi PAULGAURD14" he quickly changed it.

I'm not Anthea, but which "Elvish" do you want? Because I can assure you that it is no Tolkien Elvish, Sindarin or Quenya or otherwise.

Quote

*raises an eyebrow* Want to debate Tolkien lore with me?

Turin Turambar was a human, and his names are not related to Dwarvish at all. Considering that Túrin is his first and foremost name - as in, his parents named him so, as opposed to the other names which he attached to himself - it was probably Quenya. Túrin means "he who desires mastery"; Turambar translates to "master of fate". Neithan, Mormegil, Adanedhel, Agarwaen, Gorhol are his other names, and half of them have roots in Elvish.

I think you're confusing it with Thorin.

My favorite name for female character's have allways been Angelique. It's from a wery old book series, and all the book titles was about 'angelique and Love, or 'Angelique and The tall handsome stranger' or something like that, so when I started playing Diablo, I found great pleasure in connecting new titles like 'Angelique and Mephisto' or other related items. In later games (like this one) the name has steadly returned.

That's correct. The name is the french form for 'Angela' or 'Angelica'. I'm not sure, but I think the action in the books took place around the french revolution.
I made a mage with that name, but stopped playing that character after she had come far to early to the waste lands (no way back, you know <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif" alt="" />) She was definately not ready for 'Angelique and The Lord of Lies' <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/suspicion.gif" alt="" />

Actually I would classify avatar names into three classes.
The first is concerning avatars with invincible qualities and super stats.
Here names of Ancient GODS would be the best, also diabolic names should work too.
Raa, Horus, Seth, Isis, Neu, Zeus, Elite, Veronica, Venus, ..., etc.

The second class is that of demigods, heroes and champions where the race is critical.
Human = Hercules, Spartacus, Samson, Delilah, Cleopatra, Het-chep-sute, Joan, Antara, Holako (Jenkis Khan),

For Orcs, names made of combinations of weapons and gore works best or names ending with “ak”.
Orcs = Bloodhammer, Swardsblood, Clanbanned, Deathknife, Maceblow, Bloodclub, Bloodyarrow, Blackspeare, and Shakespeare. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
Also, Jurak, Makmak, Domak, Ranak, Gorak, etc.

For Elves, any name ending with aris for males and ca/ na for females should do, preferably augmented with forest objects.

I like Eldaris, Elona, Elvana, Elvanis, Silvana, Silvaris, Goldana, Goldaris, Miroca, Thornar, Oakana, Oakalus, Nightbreeze, Windchill, Greenleaf, Winterbolts, etc.

For Dwarfs, Stoneaxe, Stonehammer, Stony, Darktunnle, Minemaster, Mineoronbesns. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> etc.

The last and lowest rank is very limited and it has only one name:
DAD. (drink and die.)

Well I think that if she is a mage the name fits perfect.

My char is a warrior and the blonde hair stuck in my stomach.... I would prefer to have a red hair like me. The name Lucretia goes wasted in that blonde warrior.

Disdaining fortune, with his brandish'd steel,
Which smok'd with bloody execution,
Like valour's minion carv'd out his passage
Till he fac'd the slave;
Which ne'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to
him,
Till he unseam'd him from the nave to the chaps,
And fix'd his head upon our battlements.

Hi LUCRETIA

Nice to see you again.
About Angélique : the books have been writen by a couple of french people :
Anne and Serge Golon, i think they were married.
It was during the early sixties.
The books were very successful and there were 5 movies about the adventures of Angélique,
with a very beautiful women with red hair, Michèle Mercier.
The story did not take place during the french revolution but about 200 years before.
It was during the reign of Louis XIV (le roi soleil), about 1660-1680.
You are right, Angélique joined a thieves guild during some times.

In Paris, i live in the place were most of the thieves guild took place during this period.
These places were called "Cour des miracles".

In his novel "Notre Dame de Paris", the writer Victor Hugo talked of the thieves guilds in Paris.
