    What was that eye tower? - you can use it's name for a mage :p

    I like to pull my names from mythology.
    I re-skinned my basic multiplayer starter team to be all female, and named them after the norns - Skuld, Verdandi, and Urdr
    I've got another team that's all names from the legends of Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn MacCool) - Fingal, Finnegas, and Oisin
    There's lot's of great names to be stolen from mythology, and lots of great trios, if you want them to be related -

    The Furies: Alekto, Megaera, and Tisiphone
    The Graces: Aglaea, Euphrosyne, and Thalia
    The Lords of Xibalba: Hun-Came, Vucub-Came, Ahalpuh, Ahalgana, Chamiabac, Chamiaholom, Ahalmez, Ahaltocob, Xic, and Patan

    Wikipedia is great for this sort of thing. Just pick a culture, and find a legend you like, or that fits your concept.

  3. Pawndawan

    Pawndawan Champion of Cardhuntria

    I just completed renaming all my original EWiz-1 etc. characters and here is what I came up with:

    Dwarf Priests: Urist McBlesser, Urist McBuffer & Urist McHealer
    Dwarf Warriors: Needle, Pin & Thorn
    Dwarf Wizards: Urist McConjurer, Urist McMagician & Urist McSorcererer

    Elf Priests: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Syrah
    Elf Warriors: Boogie-woogie, Jitterbug & Lindy hop
    Elf Wizards: Bromine, Chlorine & Fluorine

    Human Priests: Marie Cure, Panacea & Remedy
    Human Warriors: H. Oster, H. Scholl & H. von Dohnanyi
    Human Wizards: Hecate, Nostradamus & Sir Isaac Newton
     
  4. Obernoob

    Obernoob Hydra

    I do this as well. Depending on the characters.

    When I play three elf warriors they are Legolas and the two sons of Elrond.
    When I have a mix of the races, that is the fellowship, of course, with Gimli, Legolas and Aragon.
    For dwarfs you could take some of the chars of the little hobbit. Also I favor than names like fatso, fatty, ...

  5. "Tension", "Apprehension", and "Dissension" is a rather geeky trio of names that amused me.

    Haven't bothered otherwise naming much, but I could see being comically, openly misleading (naming a dwarf wizard "Elf Priest" or "Lizardman Sorceror", say) so it's clear I'm just being absurd.

    I do have a farm team that maybe should be named something like "Old McDonald", "Beanstalk Jack", and... oh crap, "Cate O'Leary" would be a ridiculously appropriate name given that my current farming tactic relies on burning all the things.

  9. seth arue

    seth arue Thaumaturge

    @BlackVoidDeath you could be unoriginal and go
    Black
    Void
    Death

    If you haven't already. Not fully interesting, but it's there.

  10. For the characters I allow others to see, they are somewhat fantasy related in name. For the dozen characters that only I see, the names are as filthy and suggestive as the game allows.
     
  11. Happenstance

    Happenstance Thaumaturge

    My vampires are named after vampires (Kurt Straker, Jesse Hooker, Irina von Karlstein), otherwise my characters just have dumb cliched RPG names that fit their appearance and function. All my dwarves are Scottish.

    Flaxative Party Leader Staff Member

    My current ranked party is named after Binding of Isaac tarot card pickups, each according to their function on the team...

    Invincible warrior: The Chariot
    Damage-buffing priest: The Devil
    AoE wizard: The Tower

    I'm trash. :)

    MeevarTheMighty Orc Soldier

    Since names in general are generally made from words or word elements in obsolete languages, that's what I use. For elves, I refer to a Sindarin word list, humans, Old English and dwarves, Akkadian.

  15. Kalin

    Kalin Begat G'zok

    That'll be the name of my next control wizard or radiation priest.
     
  16. My friend named his character my penorz. When we play coop, the battle log was filled with stuff like xxx stabbed my penorz or my penorz took 8 fire damage or my penorz went into a frenzy.
     
  17. With a few exceptions, and for different reasons, what I do is that I randomize a name and then add some sort of epitapth in front or behind it based on my build (Shortening the name if necessary), I like coming up with them and I'm sure my opponents appreciate it as they can sort of figure out what I'm to up to, though it probably isn't that easy: When my Elf Priest is the "Relic Warden", my Human Wizard is the "Lorekeeper" and my Human Warrior is "The Addled Wisp", there's a lot of guesswork to be done
     
  18. Rohndil

    Rohndil Hydra
