Assuming you can't get names like Cloud, Sephiroth, Tifa, Squall, et cetera ... what will you name your FFXIV character?


I'm thinking...

Rafiki

And he'll be a Taru MNK/BLM because I have a good feeling that BLM will become the new NIN in FFXIV.

Feanor or Maedhros because I'm a Middle Earth tard. Those or Aaron Long.

A feeling!? Good enough for me! *starts ridiculing people in FFXI for not always subbing BLM, as practice for FFXIV*

Valiarius, has always been my name and will always be.

I do feel really bad for the all the unimaginative snobs and losers who will name their character with unoriginal and stupid names like Xsquallx or Sephcloud or any variation on those from any videogame. Some people really did not get in line when imagination was being handed out.

I named my Elvaan Santoron, because it seemed similar in style to the Elvish names FFXI was suggesting to me, while giving a healthy nod to a Chicago Cubs legend. Everything I've done since in videogames has carried that moniker, and I don't see that trend shifting soon, if ever.

Seemed clever at the time. Now it's like a second name.

Aside from Final Fantasy specific names, I believe name choice will ultimately come down to the day of release.

I have several names in mind personally, but as I suspect some ppl will start formulating lists as it comes closer to release, I don't care to list them.

It's become apparent that in FFXI most ppl have no creativity when it comes to naming, and I don't want someone taking my self-engineered names on day one.

My names are always decided by what race I am. Certain names just fit certain races better.

How many white people do you know named Carlos or Jose? (this racism is... not meant to be racist! lol)

You can still be white and have those names because you are from Spain, well, you'd be Caucasian white, not Anglosaxon or Aryan white, though. Not trying to be racist either, but I know a guy who is puerto rican and named his kid Lee because he loved Bruce Lee (an Asian who gave himself a white man's name). The world has changed so much that names don't matter anymore, except in certain countries where they still cut your hands off for touching an object some believe to be of holy origins.

I'm still not sure what theme I'm going for. My FFXI character was a black haired hume named Chadnarukh. I might go with that name again, people usually don't try taking it. Though, I'm using Rukh right now on WoW and I kind of like it. Another option is Ashrin.

I've been Hyabusa for the last six years and everyone on the phone or on vent or in RL has called me Busa as a result. I think I'll shorten it to just Busa for the next SE MMO and maybe people will call me B

My FFXI name has always been "Altair", long before a certain popular next gen game came out (*coughcough* Assassin's Creed). Ever since, I've noticed it impossible to register with that name anywhere. So I guess when FFXIV comes out, I'll have to choose another one. Silly AC fanboys. >.>

God I wish I hadn't gone all out on my mule that had a crap name that came out of nowhere "Swarthysoul" lol. But this time around I will probably name him Aventis :D its the name I use on Warhammer Online (temporary MMO fix till this is out) can't wait! FFXI was awesome but the whole "PS2 limitations" thing got annoying fast.

Originally I tried for Cojiro, but I had to shorten it to Coji since someone already had that name. I'll probably just stick with Coji at this point, since I've been with it for so long.

Maybe I'll bring Bananaphone over too.

I am praying so much that by now people are learning how to name characters in MMORPGs. Naming your char something that more likely resembles an AIM screen name is fail.

:c I don't want to be running through a wonderful graphically updated forest enjoying and feeling immursed in this brand new game to suddenly see some char called Wickedbabygurl run past.

I've been using the name Yog for a very long time and I still plan on using it. Hopefully the game allows three letter names. If not I'll use the name Dimus.

I'll probably use the shortened version of my Characters name (Demonicangel) of Demo . I've kind of gotten used to being called that, and having people refer to me as anything else in a game would feel a little odd. So, same name pretty much, just shortened .

I'll probably go with Jollyjoker.

Background information:

In a medium-sized German city called Braunschweig, there is an awesome club named Jollyjokers. It's a shopping mall of clubs, which takes up a whole city block. There are seven clubs within one, each with its own style of music; a built in movie theatre; an outside foodcourt loaded with dank icecream and beer food. On Friday night, you pay ca. $10 for all you can drink German beer on tap. When I was there, there was almost 15,000 people having a blast. Had one of the most memorable experiences of my life there.

I'm not gonna name my character Tidus, Vaan or WakkaWakka, nor will I name it after a Marvel character.

Maybe I stick with my current name, but I will decide when I create my character. Depending on Race, Looks, Hair(color) etc.

The name has to suit the character.
