View Full Version : Anyone Got a Handle in Mind?


The Doctor

I know it's quite early to be thinking of this sort of thing, but considering how PO'd I was when I first heard about it, I've grown to become quite excited about this game - despite my general loathing of MMOs.

Has anyone else decided on a screen-name they'll use in the game? I was contemplating using The Doctor there, as well, though I don't s'pose that's a name per se. I've yet to decide between it, Ahmahl Kotay, and Tawnos Rashel.

Anyone else out there thinking of names, or am I the only one thinking so very far ahead?

Miltiades

Heh, you aren't the only one. I've been thinking of getting Miltiades in my name, but it doesn't really fit, I think. So I was going for something shorter, but still recognizable, with the surname being Miltias. So... Bendo Miltias, Vinto Miltias, Arnor Miltias or something like that.

Still not perfect, but I'll get it right some day. :)

Ah, thought about this too. Like you, I'd choose a 'possible' name as well. Not "Vaderfan1995' orso.

Gidon Meedek or perhaps Royus Vanlade.

Would the name "Ctrl Alt Del" feel out of place?

...not if you have slicer as profession :xp: search the aurabesh translation for it...

Since PastramiX wouldn't really work, I'll have to invent a different name.

Right now, I'm thinking of "Bonzo Van Buren".

SW01

I've often thought about the name I would use in any RPG-type thing. I really doubt SW01 would work!

I think I'll be going with 'Firmus Neraw'. I've used it in a few Roleplays and recently in KotOR. So look out for a terrified Sith officer cowering in a corner with that name - that'll be me! :lol:

But then, I had thought that I would prefer to use my LF tag so others from this site would recognise me!

Nah, will try my usual Star Warsy name "Souvi Br'rio". Made using my last surname first letters, my first name last letters, my born place name, etc...

Werner VonBraun

If that fails, Leetjeedipwnzors4352

On a more serious note, I haven't come up with a good name.

Lord Foley

I really hope they don't let people have stupid names like xBaByGrL13x.

10-26-2008, 01:56 PM
lol yea I was gonna say L33tReVaN1994 lol, but jokin aside I will use some variation of my name, Tay-ad or Mada Rolyat etc

Sabretooth
10-26-2008, 02:24 PM
I reserve the rights to the name Sir Richard Raleigh Wellesley.

John Galt
10-26-2008, 02:33 PM
Maybe Bron D'Elwynn, that's my character name in my current playthrough of KotOR.

Ztalker
10-26-2008, 02:59 PM
Hans Gruber, controversial Republic Commando? :xp:

EnderWiggin
10-26-2008, 03:28 PM
Ender Wiggin, or if that fails, my secondary name: Chamrajnagar.

And yes, it's also from the Ender Series.

I usually end up using my ancestors Surnames...

So I'll probably end being "Doran," or "Haakon," or something like that.

I didn't know you were a Siege Tower or the Scourge of Stromgald.

SpartanPride
10-26-2008, 06:21 PM
Actually, I related to Haakon the Great (Either "Great" or the Good") of Norway... you could wiki him if really wanted know :P

He's a Viking King.

And Doran was an Irish Knight I'm related to.

Alkonium
10-26-2008, 06:59 PM
Well, I haven't decided what I'm using as a first name, but the last name will definitely be Kaltas. I used that in Kotor, as well as my main character's famil name in my Sith Resurrection series, who are descended from Revan. I know, a bit pretentious, but oh well. That being said, I can't use the names Kale, Owen, Alkonium, Komad or Andros.

I'm currently thinking Stirling Haldimand, but if surnames aren't allowed I'll be Haldimand. For female alts I'll be Cpttitzlololol.

Stirling Haldimand is actually a cool name :P

True_Avery
10-27-2008, 02:18 AM
True Avery if we are allowed a surname.

Rethana if it is just one name. Rethana being my own original tag from WoW. I know this because I was the only Rethana character in WoW upon the release of Armory. Now... Well, now there are like 40 copy-cats sitting on my name. :p

Jeff
10-27-2008, 02:26 AM
My name in KotOR 1 was Owen Star and I like that name pretty well but I don't know if I want to use it since it's a different character. I will probably come up with something different.

I have some in mind, but I never post names on public forums. Some people have a nasty habit of wtealing them.

Anyone using my tag will be summarily, swiftly and brutally destroyed! :xp:

That's why I have multiple names in mind, just in case some unscrupulous character decides to steal any of my kickass names. :p

Maybe Weave

Itzre Vonyo, just because I hate MMO's. They make me cry, so I figure I should make other people's brains bleed.

Jeff
10-28-2008, 02:10 PM
I am hoping they do put some reasonable restrictions on names like no numbers and only the 1st letter can be capital, they even have those in WoW. That will not stop people from spelling Revan wrong though. :)

Det. Bart Lasiter
10-28-2008, 02:58 PM
Quoth the Revan, "nevermore".

Darth_vilas
10-28-2008, 04:15 PM
I'm thinking about Conquesto Vilasio, that is my name in my latest KotOR game.

I am of the same mindset. I've got a specific idea how I want to handle names for my characters and lots of names I've come up with but it's way too early to make them public. My name choices will also depend on how many characters I'll be able to have for my account and of course if BioWare puts some rules around what they will and won't allow in a character name then some of my ideas for names may not work.

I'd go by Arcesious Saalvadaar, but I've decided not to lower myself to the poor level of gaming that MMOs are.

If you're going to be an elitist about gaming you should abandon the whole computer thing, pick up some dice, and play D&D.

TSi21
10-30-2008, 06:33 PM
Yeah, I spelled Revan wrong, my bad. After further consideration, I may go with the name I used the second time I played through KotOR I. Revan McDoogle. Endless amounts of enjoyment after the PC got his memory back:

"I'm not Darth Revan anymore Carth, I'm Revan McDoogle!"

Classic. :)

Then stay out of these forums, and don't mock those of us who are actually looking forward to the game. It's just that simple.

I was thinking:

Aiden Kast or Mazzic Voss (both names I used in KOTOR)

11-20-2008, 09:28 PM
names lol i havnt really thought about it... i spent something like two hours thinking of a good name for kotor 2 in my first playthrough. (not kidding)
i think ill spend another two hours for tor... so i suppose i should start thinking now. lol



anyone else spent ages on names?

Steve-O Kreesh

I will not reveal any names I might use, but at one point I thought about using my xbox gamer tag....Heat Guy SK20.:)

Darkkender
01-28-2009, 09:28 PM
Lacking any real name plans I always use Darkkender in game. However I do have a variety of standby names I use that have the creative flare in mind.

Since this game has a story and our characters will be characters in this world, i'm going to make a name as Star Wars as possible. A name that sounds like it has a backstory...

adamqd
01-29-2009, 05:46 AM
^ agreed, I usually use an anagram of my own name and throw in a ' or - for star warsyness.

If I see anyone walking round called Neotheoneempororerpwnzwr I'm gonna execute them.

I logged into swg yesterday (all accounts open for free for a month) to check out the poodoo, and there was a city called "One Hot Sausage for you sir"... this is why swg players latching on to this game scares me :(

Tommycat
01-29-2009, 06:20 AM
I always try to come up with Star Warsy names. Unique, and I develop a back story for them. A back story that DOESN'T include major characters.

As for city names, I actually got mad at one of our mayors for changing the name of a city to Wookiee Luv. The guild Leader agreed, and it got changed back to Renegade Island.

"Generic Jedi"
"Generic Sith"
"Jolee Bindo"
"Jae Onasi"

I'll see how it goes when I go through the character generation process. :)

There are plenty of awesome names out there, like Dankwart Rustow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dankwart_Rustow), Naresh Dadhich (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naresh_Dadhich_(humanities_professor)), or Pratap Bhanu Mehta (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pratap_Bhanu_Mehta). And those are just political science acdemics.

No clue on possible character names... Even if I did know of any handles that I would like to use in the game, I would hate for anyone to copy them. =\

Gurges-Ahter
02-27-2009, 03:43 PM
I think I'm going to go with Je'Kade Gurges-Ater, if it's not too long. Gurges-Ater is latin for "Black Hole", which I just think is cool, and Je'Kade is a mashing of my two sons first names.

I'd suggest reversing the list and start with Jae Onasi. ;)

As for myself, I'll be going with the name I've had since I first got online 10 years ago.

I'm trying to find an anagram for my name as well. My first and last name both being pretty long, it's going to be difficult. :p
