Have you ever used your real name, friend's name, wife's/husband's name, girlfriend's/boyfriend' ;s name, a crushes' name and/or random name while playing RPG games?
I never use my real name, it just never feels right & annoys me. It's always Cloud, Link, Zidane etc. OCD central.
My characters always have over the top names like: Pill McKraken Heywood Jablome
Seymour Boobs Mike Litoris
Back when I played original, pre-expansion, EQ I had a Dwarf named Atbar Drinken. Other than that I usually create names that actually suit the game setting.
I usually either use the preset name or a 'fantasy' version of my own name. If I get a companion like in Dragons Dogma I'll just make something up. My poor pawn wound up being called Sugar Feet and looking like a female version of a titan goon from Batman.
ive used my dogs name (Neo) in D3...used alias from members of the WTC in DCUO, borderlands and games like that i just roll with the characters name
I always use my girldriends name :)
I once named a character AAAAAAA because I got carried away with the X button back on the PS1.
I always use random name generators until I find something that I like....can take a while at times though.
