Always, my characters' names are:

KOTOR: Geonus (Kaikun), male.
TSL: Sareth (Dorn), female.

I only enter first names for conversational purposes (hearing non-Basic-speaking aliens continuously refer to your character by their full name gets very annoying), but I give them honorary last names in my head. The first is a corruption of the Hellenized version of my name in Hebrew -- John is Jonah in Hebrew, Jonah is Jonas in the Septuagint, Geonus is a Star Wars-esque re-imagining Jonas, with a completely random last name -- And the second was originally to be Bastila Shan's name.

Also, Geonus is always "Mullet Man" reskinned with a beard. I haven't settled on any one face for Sareth yet.

KOTOR 1 - Doesn't matter what my name is. Usually I go with "Kahn the (adjective)". For example, first time around last year I was Kahn the Nefarious, the next time Kahn the Black, and next time probably Kahn the Invincible.

KOTOR:

LS Female (pretty much my only way of playing): Kairi Niko. My niece requested the name "Kairi" from something she was reading. Niko is the name of a Jedi-like character in the animated series Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers. In-universe explanation is that Bastila named her after her paternal grandmother, Kairiana Nikovan-Shan.

DS Male (for mod testing purposes): Joran Avon. "Joran" after the insane Dax host, and "Avon" after the sociopathic Kerr Avon.

KOTOR 2:

DSM (pretty much play that exclusively): Cian Li-Bek. "Cian" was an Irish hero, and "Li-Bek" actually was actually named for Liam Beckett (aka "Liam Kincaid") of Earth: Final Conflict.

LSF: Danni Jace. Obtained by Random name generator, and keep it because I liked it.

Usually, it's Astor Kaine, or for Darkside, Vynn Drax.

Although when I play as a female it's always Lyssa Winstar.

Yea, I'm terrible at thinking of names and it's usually the hardest part of character creation for me. So on my last playthrough I used a star wars name generator and came up with Antares Sundown.

In the past I've also just used simple first names like Jake or something, though. It does get a little awkward "hearing" aliens refer to you with your full name constantly...

I almost always play as DS in each game:

KotOR - DSM/LSM Nomis Neraw. I took a cue from 'Cin Drallig'...I later change to Darth Revan. (The wonders of KSE!)

TSL - DSM - Lord Vindikaar - lord of vengeance (from Latin vindicare)
LSM - Nomis Neraw

For me in K1 it's Shiv Recant which is an anagram of

I usually add an extra vowel or consonant to the last name, just to make is more Starwarsy.

It's funny you should mention that. The last time I played the first game I used the Save Game Editor to edit my save right after turning to the dark side atop the Rakatan temple, changing my character's name from Geonus Kaikun to Darth Revan. It felt very fitting with him embracing his identity as the Dark Lord once again.

In fact, I think that's what I'm going to do every time I play from now on. (It's my custom to always play through both of these games twice: first on the dark side and then the canonical light side. I have a thing about saving the "true" ending for last.)

K1: LS Male- Jacen Dranar was the most decent name that rolled up. *shrugs* I wanted to use Alex as a first name in my most recent fic, but Devon nixed the idea by means of excessive lulz. In any case, it's irrelevant as I always refer to him as Revan post-revelation scene.

TSL: LS Female: Lei. Perhaps I should make her full name Lei Guang (with the right intonation, translated and fixed for grammar, "the light of tears"). Emo!

K1- Revan...it eventually makes sense in the game and im not creative enough to think of one. either that or i take two parts from any of the random names that sound cool and use them

K2- The Exile lol. again simple, and again, lack of creativity. or the random names thing i just said. sometimes its cool. i never keep the same name twice (besides Revan and Exile lol)
