This is a variation of my main from Vanilla to beginning of Wrath, which was Aloisia. The name means female warrior in Old German. Ironically, both characters named this aren't warriors. :P
Screamo music + Tauren.

Once, about 4 or 5 years ago, I was playing Second Life and decided to name my character Nickelodeon. (My name is Nick, and Nickelodeon is a channel, so what the heck.) I didn't realize I spelled it wrong. I spelled it "NickelodeAn" not "NickelodeOn". I kind of laughed at myself for the mistake, but didn't fix it. When I got WoW (very soon after that) I named my character Nickelodean, purposely spelling it wrong this time, just to be funny.

Now my name is Nickelodean =)

I'm named after a Brazilian city. I have no particular ties to Brazil or said Brazilian city, and I've never been to Brazil. I don't know why I chose it, it just seemed like a cool name at the time, so I went with it. Hasn't disappointed me yet.
This name was inspired by a song from a band I really enjoy, though slightly altered. My actual World of Warcraft character names come from a variety of things; including an instrument, a soccer stadium, a vehicle model, etc. I often find myself taking forever just trying to figure out that perfect name for every new character. :P
