Anyone Got a Handle in Mind?

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?

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?

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

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

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!

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...

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

Maybe Bron D'Elwynn, that's my character name in my current playthrough of KotOR.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
