Colorful PC Names 
4th-Feb-2005 09:56 am
I am an old 1st edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons player. I've had a lot of fun slaying the wicked and outsmarting the baddies. One of the fun parts of the game for me was the inventive names that came with the territory. If your a gamer, I'd like to here some of your favorite character names, and why you liked them. I'll start off:

Bruce Phlee, my gnome monk, because I like puns.
Elvish Pressedleaf, my wife's elvish bard, puns.
Welby Boneset, my hafling cleric, because I liked Marcus Welby, MD when I was a kid.
Julio Child, my son's ogre cook, wielding cleaver, cornbread of healing, & chili of stinking cloud, puns
The Great Tabasco, Fire Mage, it just seemed so appropriate at the time.

Please post your favorites, whatever reason you liked them.

Mervyn the Miraculous (or Marvellous, Magnificent, Masterful, Mellifluous, Mendacious, Magnanimous or whatever else caught his mood at the time), Halfling Sorcerer and Travelling Showman. I like alliteration.

My main char is an elvish druid named Scar Spiderling.

My weirdo paranoid hillbilly elvish wizard is Verdant "Oops" Johnson.

My friend's human ranger is Dank Mota.

Those are my favorites.

Cerulean Everest, he's a red-haired, red-forked tail tiefling that has ice blue eyes and dresses in blue. I like how most people don't know cerulean is actually a blue color.

I don't find my names to be too original or based on the character, though...my other NPCs right now are Milia Ma'hali, Shaenelle Elken'arr, Alissa White (a cleric, probably easy to guess), and Pharris--doesn't know or have a last name.

Not one of mine, but an actual official NPC: Lord Partic Thistle.

All-around badass Samuel Elf Jackson.

Lol! I can see it now...

"The Wand Of Fireballs. For those times when you absolutely *have* to kill every muthaf#$%er in the room - accept no substitutes!"

(Paraphrased coz I don't remember the exact line :)

Migrandasa The 10' tall half orc barbarian with an intelligence of 3 and epic jump! HUZAAH

Nyara D'Ohanzee. A hollow-demon, half-drow shadowpriestess of Taldoth. ;)

Her first name came from a character of the same name in a book by Mercedes Lackey. Her second name came from Ohanzee, which according to babynames.com is native american for shadow. The D' came from a shortened fersion of 'del', spanish for 'of the'. So, she was Nyara of the Shadows.


There was also an HP character named Wren Tallonworth. She was a tiny little thing, but the captain and skilled chaser for the Hufflepuff quidditch team. Though her name fits, it's funny to me that when I created and named her, she was still an enigma to me. She actually grew into her name much later.

This has nothing to do with anything except that when I read HP I thought you meant Lovecraft >_<... I'd like to see Harry deal with a shoggoth...

Hush Daergel, whisper gnome ninja

Erlenmeyer Phlassk, elven cleric/wizard who specialized in brewing potions

And somebody I know had a sorcerer named El Scorcho

Ah, the only really punny name I had was for a one shot game.

Wyshend Poinsout, the gnomish engineer.

He had an affinity for firearms.

I need to bring him back sometime.

I think the best is when we found out the name of our party wizard, the infamous Brimstone, after 22 levels. Somehow none of us could look at this intimidating, ruthless wizard with a straight face, and ask dear Duncan for some help. No offence to people named Duncan, but it was just a funny contrast. ;)

Justin Case; a kender scrounger...

named as such because he took everything he could get his grubby mits on... just in case.

"Amedi Vak" the cleric

and...(deep breath)

"Asilud Sunnilda Gelid-Diedelindadottur" the female svirfneblin illustionist priest (back in 2e, when gnomes were powerhouses and Level Adjustment was a bad dream). Commonly known as Asi.
