Serra Yu Rhee (freckled face model in a mid-dark skin tone and the gray head-band hairdo)

"serra" is a stretched derivating (fully invented) from "serpe" in french, which is a sickle (the non-weapon scythe), and "rhee" was a deformed sounding "reap"

(but only you guys are in on it... I don't like names that have obvious profession words in it like "reaper", "scythe", "paragon", "dervish", "death", etc. No offense of course to those who do choose names that show obvious profession)

It was supposed to be Hashim Al Naafiysh, but the censor had a problem with the word Hash :wink:, so I modified it to Haashim Al Naafiysh.

I also had a problem with Hash when I created my Assasin. Wanted part of the name to be Hashashin which is based on the eastern assasins.

Ater Angelus Deorum
latin for dark angel of the gods. I accually put deus in the wrong case because I didn't check a translator I used. It gave me deum, accusitive singular form which makes no sence. I was in a rush so I didn't check it. I had to remake the charater in genitive plural, correct case I believe, when I relized it. I may even still be wrong, but its closer to correct then it was I hope.

Raven Heartlily, since some cultures beleve that ravens carry the souls of recently dead to the afterlife and that describes pretty well what the dervish does.

Though I have to admit she wears no black and is a short, freckled blond.

Interesting - there was a Magic card back in the Mirage block (which was also African-themed) called Rashida Scalebane. That must be where they got the name from.

My Dervish revels in the name Reaper Bahn. Predictably enough, she's a redhead.

By the way if people need pregenerated names, I found this hilarious baby name (don't ask, was a joke) website that makes totally horrible real-people names, but comes up with pretty good fantasy/whacky names:

I personally don't overly worry about whether or not it is the absolute correct translation. As a matter of fact, when I give a character this type of name (english "translated" into another language), I actually do it on purpose to deform it. What really counts anyway is whether or not the name looks good and sounds like it could be an actual name. In my opinion, all the better if people don't know its actual origins. (see post #22 in this thread to have a better idea of what I am trying to say... not always easy to explain without an example... :smiley: )

That is an awesome find for those who have trouble inventing original names, Scyfer! (not speaking for myself but for others who have this problem and wish they had original names)

Those people should bookmark it - it came up with several very viable fantasy character names...

Most of the time I just go with a Dante [insert latin words describing class here] with no spaces and all nominative case. Since I chose to make the name all latin I sort of wanted to make more sence. I do, however, take my time making it look good. If a word meaning roughly what I want looks better then exactly what I want I have no problem putting that in instead. The nice thing about latin is that you can change up the order and have it mean the same thing, more so then just the "Yoda effect". Also my friend is in latin 4 and I would never here the end of "uh thats not right".

Eaters Of The Dead (aka The 13th Warrior in movie form) ftw. One of the only "real" names I've seen so far, so nice work. I don't get all these purposfully silly or strange names.

My Dervish is named Jasira The Seeker. Jasira is a Swahili name that means "bold" or "courageous".

seth [wl]

My Dervish Lady is called Arrabella Of Ossa.
Her name is based on the actual V. Ossa which freed Elona hundreds of years ago and brought peace to Elona.

Yet in the Storyline, if I'm not mistaken, his daughter (forgot her first name) Ossa is going all midievel on the Sunspear's butts.

My Lady Char is the Daughter of the great Ossa and thus the Sister of the evil Ossa Lady.

I will be Victorious though and have my Sisters Head on a Pike for I walk through the Valley of Shadows and will fear no Evil as I'm the most Evil Dervish to be crossed. :)

May the 5 Gods of Elona be with you and give you the strenght to ressurect the Sunspear and return with great Vengeance and furies Anger.

Free Online Play is in my Alliance.... small world.

My Dervish is Magdalena Orestes.

I've always loved the name Madgalena (heaven forbid I ever have a daughter: Maggie, Madga, Lena, she'd have no clue what her actual name was), and it also happens to be the name of a song by A Perfect Circle. Orestes is also an APC song. It seemed fitting...spinning dervish + those fabulous skirts = a perfect circle.

Made one with the name Daphne of Arcadia < because daphne is a transmorgrifier, can change into a laurel tree, so i thought that would be nice for dervish who can also change form, but them i dislike the name daphne. thus come Ada Eze.

Misty Eveningshade. Tried a few like Dawn Mist and Misty Dawn, thern though maybe Misty Sundown which sounded awful. I dont know why I didnt go with Misty Dusk but probably like al the other names it was already taken. I wanted my character to have a name with a melancholic feel for some reason. I already have a character with a tough celtic like warrior name and one with a villainous dangerous name for my Mesmer/Necro. My monk ihas quite a melancholic name whilst my rit has a sexy name. I feel that Misty is a dervish who fights for the side of the good and innocent and only because she knows that they will always be the threatened and the victim.

I am Maahes Callistratos.
Maahes is the son of Bastet. He is God of War and Protection. Leonine Lord of Slaughter.
Callistratos d'Aphidna was a Greek Sophist and Rhetorician, and a Politician towards peace. He traveled throughout the mediterranean.
I found a reference to a Maahes Callistratos in a dusty old book about egyptian lore. It has him listed as a gallic mercenary. Assumptions are that he was born of an egyptian woman who bedded a greek. Maahes was a notorious pirate and mercenary who died "defending a town" (Name unknown). The Romantic in me is hoping he defended the town to save it and the people. The Cynic in me thinks he was hiding something there and was trying to keep others from it. The Pragmatic says he just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when some guard patrol showed up.
I'm still trying to find more research on it.

I feel the same way. I have so many "normal-ish" names for my characters... I tend to feel bad when I see Reaper Of Souls running around. Sure they're simplistic and stuff but I still find them more catchy. heh.

So far only cool name I have created like that is Itchi The Slayer who is my pvp Sin xD

SWEET! Thanks!
I actually want to go back towards the Empire of old Ghana (Wagadu) and start using some of the naming conventions they had. Even though they were heavy in the slave trade and minerals, they've got a pretty rich culture and history even though they only existed for 300 years.

I have a female Dervish and her name is Aello Bremusa, an Amazonian name.


Aello One of Hippolyte's Amazons. She was the first to attack Herakles when he came for Hippolyte's girdle. Unfortunately, Herakles now wore the lion skin from his first labour, making him invulnerable. Aello could not kill Herakles and was killed herself. Her name means, "Whirlwind."


Bremusa An Amazon who was one of Penthesilea's twelve companions at Troy, where she died. Her name means, "Raging Female."

Her name means "Whirlwind Raging Female". :smiley:

Mine is ``Chani Sihaya Yrast´´

Chani from Dune, Sihaya which means Desert's Spring and Yrast which is a swedish word meaning ``drunk by spinning´´ (used also in Fundamental Nuclear Structure to describe the rotational gamma band from fast rotating nucleus).

With all this sand and wurms, I think it's a good choice!
