Anyone notice in GW the lack of anime/weird names? With the coming of assassins, I'm hoping I'll get to see a lot more
NARUTO NINJA
Naruto Hokage

Rock Leex

Neji Byakugan
Sakura Sharingan
Sasuke Uchiha

This one is great! :grin:

I personally would like to see more anime-style names too, but I don't support any "slayer" or "xxx" in the names.

the names of the assasins in Aeon Flux have been taken. LOL

Boo. Where is the originality?

Anything with 'x,' 'death,' or just stolen from something, i don't like.

I pray to god i don't see anime clone names running around EVERYWHERE. ;-;

Made "Foliage Savant" last night.. He'll be becoming an assassin next friday. :D

I deleted my necro last night, mainly because I was unhappy with her, and I wanted to reserve a name (by recreating her as a PVP-only storage mule) I was amazed wasn't taken yet. In the future, on the off chance I make an assassin:

Bella Sangre. Spanish, and literally translates as "Beautiful Blood." :grin:

Another GG fan. ^_^

I was thinking of Chipp Zanuff, but that's already taken, as is every *reasonable* permutation. But, I have an alternate, idea for some names non-GG names to use. X)

I wouldnt be surprised if you HAD played against that name and thought I had sucked. I have two sticks of 128 RAM in this machine - and thats all. Yeah. Its a fracking marvel I can even load GW.

Also, I used it for a while, deleted it for a day, then tried to remake... and guess what? Name taken.

Just remade him around a week ago :)

My characters use the names of characters I've used in most other games (and have written about before), I've had good luck so far with them being free. One good thing about this beta account is that I'll be able to reserve the names of the four characters I haven't made yet.

15-01-2006, 09:57
You will see a lot of:

Bob the assassin
Bob teh assassin
Bob the asasin
Bob teh asasin
etc.

Or

Na r u t o
Nar u t o
Nar uto

*** *** in Is still my favorite.

More names we can expect:

Black death
The black death
Teh black death
the dark ganker
Teh dark ganker
The evil ganker
Teh evil ganker
omg i gank u
lolz i r assassin
i play assassin

Too lazy to go on.

And char limit is 19.

With the oriental theme upcoming, I'd like to see more Japanese/Chinese-styled names. It's not that hard, just put a lot of vowels and 'x'`s in it and have 'ei' it as a suffix. (e.g. Xarutei)

Probably going to see a rise of Daimyo names from Shogun: Total War sooner or later (I still play it from time to time, so yeah). Personally, I was gonna use my PvP Ranger's name: Fleeting Shadows. Sounds assasinish dunnit?

iamArc
15-01-2006, 23:49
All the good bleach names are taken i think

Zaxares

I'm still deciding on what to call my assassin... Namely because I haven't decided whether it's going to be a male or female assassin. :grin: I'll have to wait until the Factions event to see how they look first.

Mawgleah
16-01-2006, 03:21
Well, I've already reserved the name for my assassin by using my fourth character slot. All I'll have to do is delete and re-create on Friday. However, I've not had any problems with having any of the names I've chosen being taken as I'm pretty original with my characters monikers.

Leonidas Of Sparta
16-01-2006, 04:31
toooooo many asian names --- ill be going with a historical figure from Sparta as usual ;)

Neth Shyish
16-01-2006, 15:07
Chikoto Nuani
Qi Nto Wahnt
**** Like That

I'm gonna call my assassin: "Xian the Infamous".

That put such a smile on my face lol

The names don't need to be asian, it's just they're being based on that because 1) the Xulani look fairly asian 2) the expansion has an asian theme (apparently) and 3) the classic sin is based over there usually.

16-01-2006, 20:57
I already ruined it by making my existing Warrior, Alennia, which was typically the name I'd use for assassin type characters. Maybe I'll make a Blade Fury Assassin character like I had in D2 and call her Daggerrhea again...

Propater
16-01-2006, 21:43
I am so pissed Noctis Labyrinthus is already taken by my ranger. (maybe i will ruthlessly delete him. Assassin: Be afraid, ranger, be very afraid.)

Guess I will have to go with Mare Erythraeum or Tharsis Montes depending on apparence.

My martian thematic naming comes around nicely with the incoming assassin. I will have to pretend to be a Panzer Kunst adept. (yes, another manga reference... :grin: )

(If I make a ritualist, he will definitely be named Syrtis Major.)

I've recently been very tempted to name my female assassin Visas Marr (I absolutely adored her in KotOR II), but that would be violating my personal code of never stealing names from fiction and entertainment. Back to the brainstorming...

GADefence
17-01-2006, 06:18
I'd call mine Taki the Disposable Assasin.

Hugh the Hand.

I have several more if someone decides to take that one (props to any that know where that's from)

Hugh the Hand.

The Death Gate Cycle!

The society of assassins in Arianus denoted the ranks of their assassins with terms describing how (metaphorically) deeply they plunged their daggers into their victims. Tip, Blade, Hilt, Hand, Arm.

IIRC, Hugh was the only one to have the rank of Hand, with only Ciang the Arm, the leader of their order, being higher.


I'm suprised that nobody has yet brought up Ninja Scroll, that quintessential favorite of boys who think that gratuitous violence and sex are cool.

Jubei Kibagami
Kibigami Juubie
Xx Jubei Xx
I Jubei Kibagami I
X J U B E I X

I'd post more, but I can't remember the names of any of the other characters. I bet a lot of these names are already taken.

Probably because Jubei is not an assassin. He's just a particularly skilled swordsman. If anything, he's more like a Tactics/Swordsmanship warrior than an assassin. He must also like to spam Defy Pain a lot, judging by the beating he takes in so many fights. :grin:

Loustien
18-01-2006, 02:26
Well, all my toons are named Loustien, so unless some one takes it im going with "Loustien The Ninja" if anyone takes that name, you can expect a whisper from me the day Factions comes out. You have been warned

Mookle X
18-01-2006, 02:51
I definitely plan on naming my monk Mookle the Rouge or Rouge Mookle or maybe Ninja Mookle. I definitely will be going themed with this one. Unlike my other characters Mookle X R/x, Mooks Girlfriend Me/R.

Saint Mookle, a Monk however is themed well.

Lone Wolf
18-01-2006, 05:27
There are way too many asian/anime names going for the assassin.

I think I'm gonna just delete my PvP character slot for the assassin and call him A Pvp Ranger.

-Lone Wolf

Zaxares
18-01-2006, 05:38
OK, I've decided.

As my assassin will likely be terminated (and reassembled when the day is right) at the end of the beta weekend, he shall henceforth be called:

*drum roll*

Deleted in Two Days

Yea I'm kinda surprised that no one has mentioned Artemis Entreri. Of course someone has stolen that name a long time ago I'm sure, but still :rolleyes: .

Though I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of people using copys of that name, or just taking his last name. Like Naruto Entreri or something.

19-01-2006, 15:27
Artemis was taken in the beta's I'm sure all the R.A. Salvator fans out there were dissapointed :wink: BTW Hugh the hand ... taken (and I'm impressed there were people that knew what I was talking about cudos to you :grin: ).

I just thought of a perfect name tho.... but this one I'm not telling until I get it :sealed:

I've made my decision.

I will not continue my greek/american combinations, like

but rather extend it. My new Assassin is

Cortana Tyler

Sounds good, doesn't it?

Immortal Fist
20-01-2006, 20:32

Prince of Persia.

OFC, it isn't my real assasin's name - it link's in with Death Dragon, my warrior's name. :tongue: I'm just not gonna tell ya until I make meh PvE Assassin.

My Assassin's future name? (already reserved so dont bother trying to take it ;) )

Xunlai Secret Agent
Rofl I wanted that Ubermancer! After finding out it was taken I thought I might take Secret Xunlai Agent but that sounded weird and Xunlai Agent is taken obviously! So I went for:

Xunlai Assassin

Yeah not original but Uber chose the original name I was going to take: smiley: I deleted my char to test ritualist and lost the name <.<
Nice one Uber it's a good name I applaud your good taste

MasterNightfall
21-01-2006, 22:48
The only cents I'll throw in here is that anyone picking a name that's half as ridicilous as 'Bloodmaster Nightblade' deserves to be ridiculed. ^_^

Anyone spot the reference?

Azgalon
22-01-2006, 03:17
It'll probably be Bloodmaster Nightblade or similar.

The Experimentor
22-01-2006, 13:05
I try to seriously roleplay when I come up with names. So before I can create Assassin names, I have to ask: are Assassins in the game Ascalon or Canthan (or from even other cultures)?

MadCatvanHelsing
22-01-2006, 13:10

but will need black hair and black armor for max name effect :rolleyes:

Assassins seem to be from Cantha to answer the The Experimentor's question:grin:

Akisame Kiyoraba
22-01-2006, 18:00
I took Mizuki Tenkage for mine, and am hoping to reserve it for when the actual release comes. No, its not inspired by anywhere, simply the individual kanji readings, Mizu(水) - water, Ki(気) - spirit, Ten(天) - heaven, and Kage, probably one of the most commonly used words for a rogue or assassin name, shadow. I mean, with the amount of Asian influence put into Cantha, there is finally an opportunity for Japanese names to fit in.

I'm also aware that those characters will most likely appear as squares, or glitches for most people.

I got it back! I talked to the guy who had it and asked him if he was keeping it and he said he didn't really care. While doing that I tested the name Xunlai Ritualist and reserved that for myself!

So my Assassin will be called: Xunlai Assassin
and my Ritualist will be called: Xunlai Ritualist

.. :p

If male i use my first characters name and adds "the xxx", the Mage if ele, the healer if monk, the heretic if necro, the assasin if assasin etc.

If female, i go for Lady Assasiness or Lady Deadlyness
