The Story Behind Your Name(s)

Simple enough title to this thread!

My hunter here is named after my cat, Samarrah.

I have one other toon that gets played, though not too recently....a Rogue named Daggerdoll. She was originally named Findingemo because I wanted something funny and punny..I then changed it to Daggerdoll after seeing someone in a bg whose name was Daggerdave. I just replaced "dave" with "doll" because I liked the juxtaposition between the two words "dagger" and "doll."

BONUS MATERIAL!! I race changed Sam here from Orc for belf solely for transmog!!! Yup...sad, but true. I miss my Orc but I have really come to embrace Sam as a belf. I really do like belfs a lot now :)

So what is the story behind your name(s)?

There was a movie called The Prophecy II and Glenn Danzig played an angel for like a minute called Samayel. I just added an A because, well, whatever, it looked better. So yeah, I named my main after a bit part in a cheap direct-to-VHS movie starring Christopher Walken.

For my paladin, druid, and hunter (who's only level one but whatever), I named them after the Mournival, Horus Lupercal's advisory council from the Warhammer 40k Horus Heresy series: Garviel Loken (paladin), Torik Torgaddon, and Horus Aximand (Little Horus). I'm only missing Ezekyle Abaddon and I'll have all four as toons. My priest is also from Warhammer 40k, named after Lorgar Aurelian. Since he was the Primarch of the Word Bearers, it only seemed reasonable that if I had a toon named after him, it'd be a priest. I'd name more characters after the Legion/Chapter I actually played as when I did the table-top stuff (Dark Angels), but all the good ones are taken. I think.

My DK's name I actually got from SW:TOR's random name generator. Still the only toon with his name, though my monk's name I just changed the last letter.

I read the name of an NPC in Star Ocean 2 incorrectly and just kinda went with it.

Because I am. As is everyone else, I was just able to get the name first. :)

Mines pretty obvious.

It's also 12 letters exactly, which at the time I thought was pretty legit. Sadly, some other bloke has the original name.

I've been going by "Omni" for years, starting with it being my floating name-tag in super smash bros, melee. The majority of my toons are named Omni-something. And I made him with intentions of being fire...so I was like hmm......omnifire....nah....omniflame...gay..... armadeggon usually brings images of fire and death and destruction.....Omni....geddon. Done!

That pretty much explains it. Except the original spelling was taken, so I improvised

Made this toon as an alt just to !%%*%%## around and see what Chogall was like, so I didn't really care too much about the name. "Hmm, it's a female human, and it's a warrior...so...GIRLRAGE!"

I like it though. Although on rare occasions I've had people ask me if it's a reference to "that time of the month" or if I'm some forever alone guy that's raging cuz he can't get girls ha ha.


I always thought you had anger management issues.

:P

Tedd was taken. I was originally undead. And Undead Tedd is just about the coolest thing ever. Turns out I liked having regular names for toons so I soon had Murry, Geraldd, Lebronn, Jill, and if I could ever snag Adam I would in a heartbeat.

My other character name is Screwloose, which has been my handle since the early 90's.
