Diablo® III

Names for Female Wizard?

They seem to originate out of a Chinese type of place. Anyone have any suggestions?

The wizard from the short story is named Li-Ming, so I guess that name's as good as any. I personally named mine Azula, because that's all I can think of when I hear her voice.

Legend of the Five Rings is a card game based loosely on the Eastern Asia, primarily Japan, but one Clan (the Unicorn Clan) has a lot of Chinese (most Horiuchi and Iuchi) and Mongolian (most Moto, btw) names. You may find a good fit there.

This may help you:

Is she Chinese or Japanese?


Technically she's from Xian Sai. We don't know much about it, but they've got Chinese "sounding" names like Xian Sai and Li-Ming, and Shen's got James Hong's accent, so I'd say it's primarily based on China.

But Japanese(ish) things like yumi, ono, "daibo", and "Buriza-Do Kyanon" can be found all over Sanctuary, with little indication of where they originated. I wouldn't be suprsied if Xian Sai was just a blend of various East Asian cultures. It's all pretty much up in the air.

there are samurai (compare graphics with the actual thing) swords all over the place too. Its probably just a mix.

Yeah

Kwan dao, qiang, and nu are also Chinese.
