I asked him directly and he said "I thought it was a rad belf name, so I ganked it."
I personally would rather roll a character with a unique name, but hey, whatever. I was confused at first, but have just kind of shrugged and moved on, and there's no reason to dwell on it.
I'm glad I have such good taste in names.
Don't forget appearance!
Also, responses like this are the reason people would want to imitate you. Stop being such a goody-goody and throw a shoe, gorramit.
Speaking of your name, how do you pronounce it? Is it starrrrien or staaaareien? I've wondered this for years.
