    Harton Maldir is a name I've used in P&P and LARP; it just came out of nowhere, but I think it's a good name - simple, but with no obvious origin.

    [​IMG] I sat down thinking of a cool name. I looked in a Black Metal magazine and saw that the singer in Dimmu Borgir´s name is Shagroth (or Shagrath).
    I didn´t want to use the same name, so I thought out something that sounded pretty much like it! :)

    And that´s the story of Zaragoth - Your lord and master, who you must obey unless you buy me a toothpicker.

    ehh. bye.

    If I remember correctly Llandon is the name of an Elf fighter from one of the old "chose you're own adventure" D&D novels from the early 80's.

    [​IMG] Why do I feel like I alread answered this question? I think there was a thread simular flooting around before, oh well.

    Voltric is the name of a character I played in a fantasy LARP during college. After five years 'Voltric' was the second strongest cleric in the land. I enjoyed playing the character but final retired him when I moved on to other things.

    When I first got a modem and had to think up a 'username' (I didn't want to use my real name), every name I came up with had been 'taken' and I could only use it if I put lots of numbers after it - like Minerva6005 - so I was getting desperate. I have a bookcase next to my computer. I used to do Old Icelandic at university. There was this book called 'The Fljotsdale Saga'.
    Funny thing - nobody else used it! :rolleyes:
    So I stuck with it. It's become as much my own name as my 'real' one, lol!

    From a hungarian heroic fantasy serie. Alyr Arkhon is a half elf necromancer. He is cynical and has a morbid humour. "Great" hero...

  16. Silverblade Guest

    I just put two words together. I had my real name as username at first, but since everyone else had a "fantasy name" I decided to take one too.

    Darien I chose simply because I like the sound of it. Trouble is, like Fljotsdale mentioned, it has already been used a million times. So I tacked on a surname. Noella is the middle name of my youngest daughter, after my Grandmother (who was born on Christmas). Et voila! :)
     
  18. Avooch Dar Guest

    Can't really explain my name. It was supposed to sound like Avook Dar but after a certain pooch reference i have since discovered that it sounds quite funny that way.

    mine isn't fantasy at all.. it's just the title of a book by william gibson... in there, the idoru is a virtual pop star.. she doesn't exist, or does she? Ah sweet philosophy. Anyway, I feel sort of stupid about it not really suiting a bg forum, but it's just more convenient this way, coz this is the nick I use on whatever forum I'm on. I considered using my protagonist's name, but I've never been good with coming up with good ones.. my bg2 swashbuckler halfelf was aegorowon, coz I thought it'd be elvish with something you can't pronounce (I know, I know). Right now I'm playing bg1 with cleric/illusionist gnome Rilebold, which is at least somewhat better methinks, except I get a feeling I stole it form somewhere.

    My name is William. Those with whom I am familiar refer to me as Will. I figured that subtlety was the best policy and refrained from using a name like Marquis Torgenbrassna Illithidhysterectomy III, using my ordinary name instead.
