From the bravest Barbarian to the most driven Witch Doctor, every hero has a name they answer to. Most names do not come from the nether, however. Many are homages to ancestral homelands, respected warriors of old, or even fond relics of the past.
But does a name shape a hero or a hero shape a name?
For this week's community question, we want to ask you: What inspired your Diablo III character name?

I wanted a different name, and one that makes people go "Huh?"
Oxymorons are cool, and I dont like following the rules of nature. (I.E. "cute Koala, cuddly Koala, etc.)
Plus if a koala ever did rage out, I bet they could do some damage :)
Oh I guess that is my battletag, not my character name, I wish I could change my characters name :) *hint hint*

Wiz - She shoots "high beams" of disintegration.
DH - She will "slit" a demon's throat with fan of knives.
WD - She brings "plagues" of locusts, spiders, toads, and undead.
Barb - Likes Snu Snu and looks like Ndamukong Suh
HC Barb - He are smart, him told me so.
lvl1 Barb = Temporary dumping ground for stuff
lvl4 Monk = Mule for BOA junk that I think might be useful
lvl5 WD = My gf made this char, no clue why she named it Elton John

Colossus - This one's from Xmen. :P
DaVoodoo - Good ol' Nawlins.
Ezio - I dunno, he kind of reminded me of Ezio Auditore
Elandara - Just sounds like a master of the Arcane.
Rasmussen - Monks are like Russia meets Shaolin.
DeathByLag.- I'm tired of dying to lag in Hardcore. >.<
Khal comes from Game of Thrones of course.
My heroes are all Khal's.
Khal La Morte (Khal the Dead in french is one of my favorites, but not a wise choice for HC though)
Khal Ash is great for casters.
Khal Burg for big dumb fighters/orcs.
And so on.
WD: Sangoma. The name for a south african Witch Doctor.
Wizard: DeMorte. Name from my Necromancer in D2...Can't remember what brought this one about.
Barb: Sogarr. Seemed like a fitting name for a barbarian, and the name came about from thinking about games I've played in the past.
Demon Hunter: Eve. Just seemed fitting
Monk: Krillin. Totally stolen from Dragonball. I was going to roll a new monk with a new name, until I saw two of my monk friends brawl in the arena. Monk v Monk seriously looks like a Dragonball style fight, and it's awesome.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
