In the latest trend in video games that has been sweeping the new generation of the parenting nation are babies named after video game characters.
ill name my chilled dante ... gosh i really like dante DMC (the old one not the new one)
That's actually my cousin's name, but i'm Italian, so there's no surprise there lol. It's a pretty common name here.
niiiiiiiiiice ... i liked italy in AC2 and now i love it ^_^
One I will name kratos and the other one Kronos !!
I will name my child Deimos, and they shall be destined to fight.
my kids dante and bayonetta will be ready for your kids :P
I'll call my kid #Hashtag
i actually lol'd
I actually really like the name Raine (or Rayne), Lara and Dante. Would definitely name my kids that ;)
My new born son is Final Fantasy Tactics AU Jenkins, we are so proud of him.
That sounds like an awful name.
Id name my child dastan or elika just because I like prince of persia,heck rayne is a cool name so id do it,korra because of legend of korra,jade, dante or vergil also,now if someome named their kid noob saibot that would be terrible. EDIT: I wonder if someone would name their kid something threatening like death because of darksiders, or kratos because of GoW, I personally wouldnt
soul sacrifice reference? or am I the only one?
We're one of the 6 people who get it.
Ryu, Raiden, and Katana, are my kids names.
A trio of badass ninja children,thats awesome
One thing I wouldn't do is name a child Jaaassssoooon
Why? It would be easy to call him for dinner, all you would have to do is... Press X to Jaaaassooooooonnnn!
Im actually putting my son down for a nap as I type this he is 2 and we named him Psymon after Psymon from Ssx. We are expecting our little girl in december and her name is going to be Rayne we decided that 4 years ago.
Alternate spellings are pretty cliche now, no offense.
If you do hopefully you teach them how to fight as well because kids will pick on anything different.
The question isnt are you bold enough, but are you cruel enough to give your child a name like that.
"Are You Bold Enough to Name Your Child BloodRayne?" Are you stupid enough to name your child after anything video game related? Seriously, your child deserves better.
let me guess sir, a name from the good ol book? because that hasnt already been done a thousand times.................
No. I would actually never give my child a biblical name mostly because I'm not Jewish and secondly because I think its a copout. I would name my child something meaningful and from the heart, not from a stupid video game.
fair enough. Albert, Rose, Shana, Meru, Dart etc etc from legend of dragoon are using some regular common names that i have the inspiration to use should it be so that happens to come from a video game source. i mean if you can think of something cool on your own by all means go for it i mean thats what i would do but unfortunately i wouldnt come up with something original without mixing in something that i already know of by accident i guess what im trying to say is that it isnt truly a stupid copout idea to do when considering the sources at hand
They got the question wrong! It's are you smart enough to 'not' give your kid a name he or she would regret.
A guy in Egypt actually named his daughter Facebook so is this really out of the question?
wasn't there that soldier who legally changed his name to Optimus Prime?
i think if i had a daughter, i'd like to name her Lara, and a son, probably Nathan/Nate. game related, but still not too unusual. like some have said though, Rain/Rayne would actually be pretty cool too. maybe my second daughter if i had one. ^_^
Millia Bloodedge would make roll call for her class a bit more interesting.....
I named my 2 boys Nathaniel and Superfly. Waka Waka Do Do YEAH!!
