Tycho (Shaman) (Tai-koh)
A combination, really. I'm a bit of an astro-nerd, although more about astrophysics and the evolution of astronomical science. Additionally, a character in one of my favourite OVA anime is named Tycho Science, so why the eff not?
There used to be a Rogue on this server named Tychus. Back in Wrath he told me he had tried to get the name Tycho but it was taken. Apparently I nabbed the name sometime after the previous Tycho left. :p He gave me a cupcake and I still have it!
Caspeia (Paladin) (Kass-peeah)
Again with an astronomy name, based off of the constellation and shortened. Thought it sounded cool.
Iskabel (Warrior) (Ihs-kahbel)
I wanted a name that sounded like a viking name. Isk was the first thing that came to mind and it shortly followed with Iskabel. Apparently Iska is the Swedish word for cold, so it worked out. Iskabel actually didn't originate in WoW, she originated in a free MMO that had a viking race, but I never really played that MMO so re-used the name.
Iolana (Druid) (Eeoh-lahna)
Pretty simple, it's a Hawaiian name meaning "soaring bird" appropriate for a Druid.
Coirfirinne (Rogue) (Cohr-fihrin-yeh)
Somewhat a Boondock Saints reference. Coirfirinne is the Gaelic tern for Veritas Aequitas, or truth and justice. It's also by far the hardest to pronounce. ;)
Tohbie (Mage) (Toh-bee)
The middle name of someone I lost a couple years ago. Although it's supposed to be Tobi, that and Toby were taken and I didn't feel like petitioning a GM.
Novinha (DK) (Noh-veenyah)
Taken from Orson Scott Card's "Speaker for the Dead", Dona Ivanova or Novinha. Probably the best book in that series not only for a great story, but a great meaning as well.
Semantics (Priest) (Seh-manticks)
I wanted to use this name for a Priest since TBC. The word popped up as a character name when listening to the Mars Volta song "Cavalettas". The image of an elf Priest in t6/Absolution came to mind.
Intention (Hunter) (In-ten-tchun)
Same as above, but with the end of the song "Ilyena". This was originally supposed to be a Nelf or Draenei Warrior though. I thought the name would sound cool on a PvP toon, tho I have no intention to PvP on this toon. (no pun intended... in either instance)
Abbigael (Warlock) (Ahbih-gail)
I wanted a gothy name, and for some reason that chick from NCIS popped into mind due to my mom's obsession with her when I originally rolled this toon as a Gnome, and then later as a Human. All normal variations of the name were taken.
