Naming a new created game character?
So you got into the latest game and you create a character just the way you want it. Then you type in your name and you get the message “Name already taken”.
How can that be you have been using this name on every game since the comedore64 days? Now I’m stuck in a rut what do I do now?
So I’m trying to come up with a system to name a character without resorting to using names of people and references from obscure TV shows. Change hear the gears in my brain grinding. I can!
The way I normally create a secondary character name is by changing the first letter of the name in alphabetical order to create a new name. Like this Bob becomes Cob, Dob, etc.
The hard part is coming up with the name in the first place. I’ve been trying to come with some way to name my character uniquely, without using some hooky random name generator that gives me a name I can’t even say.
If anyone has ideas I’m all ears, until then “Barney Fife” will be roaming the world of Guild Wars 2
So today I ask you, how do you name your game characters?
