Character Names (general discussion)

Filth made a thread a while back asking people where they got their character names, it was actually a pretty cool thread. I'm not trying to bring that back, I just wanted to know (from the 11 people that still look on these forums) how important your names are to you.

I try really hard to come up with names that I will really like to use, or names that mean something to me. A good friend of mine (Aeylo if you play alliance, Taeli if you played horde in Wrath) refuses to tell anyone the names of her alts, and can't seem to create a new character unless she can think of the perfect name. I kinda wish I was like that. Slightly related note: I am done using Razzberry as a name, and in future games online I will be using a much better name.


Have any of you been using the same name for many years? Or have good names to share? Anything relevant to spread onto these forums? Maiev forums, perhaps the only place you can go to feel more alone than actually being on Maiev.

Edit:'needless to say' didn't make any sense, it was needed to say as my previous statements were unrelated lol.

back in the day when toxiktraktor had his druid boy fan club, i made this druid in hopes of beating him at his own game (YEA I KNOW RIGHT?) and ended changing to resto because i was asked to heal in arenas and liked it alot more and when i was first starting off healing, there were like NO pvp restos on horde. so i felt unique. my names started off tauros because it was a pokemon name and i was once a tauren. then i changed it to blink to go along with my hunter and than named it emeral after a robot, than once again named myself to genesis to sound more resto like than i finally settled on Ivysaur.. and i am ivysaur because i love that pokemon, it fits the green theme and resto theme i have, and it just reminds me of the good old days of watching my favorite tv show on saturday mornings lol. sucks growing up :p

Well, im a hairy mofo, and my friends call me Chewie from time to time. Me and a friend were trying to figure out a name for me, and we were tossing back and forth. I had decided it had to be something with wookies, because im Chewie. Make sense? Yes it does.

So we were tossing out names one after the other, when all of the sudden I interrupt the though process and say: "Pass me the Johnnie Walker will ya, I need a refill". While he was saying "Wookie" I was saying "Johnnie" and while he said whatever it is he said, I said "Walker", and it stood out.

So my name is based on Star Wars and really good scotch :D

Wladyslaw - (Polish) possessor of the glory.


Needed something unique. It's similar to the Hungarian name Ladislaus and the Russian name Vladislav.
