    @ Arath --- That is sooo weird, because when I first got BG, my first few characters all had the name "Arath Dynn." Pretty Freaky!

    Other thank than one (which comes back occasionally, I just try to make up cool ones, or "Fantasize" regular names.

    One of my personal favs: Crystufeir D'Ma

    My favorite name to use was Arkanis, then Black Isle ruined it for me by putting an Arkanis in BG2. :mad:

    Being a big Highlander fan, my favorite name at the moment is KURGAN. Which I use for my chaotic evil fighter.

    I like Durgan for evil dwarf characters.

    I have also started using Dax for my Bard, F/M and F/T characters, which was inspired by Dakkon (what a cool character).

    Out of all the classes, I find Druids by far the hardest to name.

    I've just ran through BG with myself Apeman van Erada.

    Apeman from sorcerers and Van Erada has all the letters of my real last name.

    I used to play Everquest and I liked playing a Paladin because of their moral qualities. So, I decided my name would be Paldanari. And so that is who I always am.

    Ooh, I love coming up with names. That's possibly why it took me so long to beat the Nashkel Mines, I kept making new games. Some of my faves are Jayd, Bhaie, Xiec, Kenevik, Sybelle, Aurila... can't remember anymore at the moment. Names are fun though!

    I usually try to stick with "Virne", but that just doesn't fit in; so I use "Vicius."

    *Cough* :D

    (Yea, it's hard to come by with good -fitting!- names)

    So far:
    My Paladin/Undead Hunter (who is about to start TOB):
    Michael

    My most Favorite Character, A chaotic good elven Mage dualed from a level 7 Fighter, who is about to finish BG1.
    Eleril

    That's a cool elven name I found using a elf name generator.

    And for my soon to be created chaotic evil elven Thief/ dualed from a level 7 Fighter:
    Vandir - Another one from the elf name generator.

    I usually make up a new name for each char I make.
    Lately I've used Saeraith for my male elven mage, Natalyana or Saithaya for my female elven mages, and Saithayan for a male. My necromancer I called Naerocharon. Thats the best of those I still remember.

    My most favorite character - chaotic good male ranger or fighter: Hellscream and Doomhammer (names of ork leaders in WarCraft 3). Now I am playing with a chaotic neutral mage - Al Hazred (crazy Arab, author of the Necronomicon - H.P. Lovecraft). I also like Oton or Atilla for a fighter.
