I'm thinking of using Naeo or Astrielian
probably Naeo, so people who used to play XI will know it's me :>

assuming classes aren't changed, i'll probably go BRD or PUP if it's viable =]

I like names that can be shortened multiple ways; I like getting nick names.

Rockafella
Kharmageddon

Those are my top two choices.

I'm sticking with Torrence.

I would die if cheerleader or some variation was a playable job. Currently I am the next best thing: Bard.

Hey, I can dream.

Well if people don't scoop my name up like vultures D: Since I had my name before Elder Scrolls IV came out but people always assume I got it from there. I'll be trying to go with Greyfox still. If not.... well I'll have to leave it up to what comes to mind on release day. Maybe I'll go with my nickname Faux.

I always have a few names in mind when I start character creation, but then they never fit my toon when I'm done. lol
I like my game name to have meaning but also not sound like I peeled it out of a 15 year old's texting list. So I tend to make names derived from something I like in a non-English language. You'd be surprised at how many new friends you can make with people who recognize their milk tongue in your name. :)

I know many people don't know me, since I quit very very long ago, but now with the new news of FFXIV, I will come back to it... For the casual gaming style...


Might go for same name as I had, Davila


or might change to Gongo, a MNK M Mithra

dunno.

Well, if they do by chance make Male Mithra, I'm going to name him after another Lion King name, Simba. Rafiki was the baboon's name in that movie.

As a tribute, perhaps "Bea Arthur." Only if we can use 2 words though. It doesn't lend itself to mono-wording as, say, "Dolphlundgren" does.

I like the movie "Stone Cold," so maybe "Bozworth" would be a good option.

I've used the name Litie for all my female characters since Ragnarok Online.

I'll use that one. I'll most likely be the Mithra type race or whatever since it fits me, but you never know.

Well, a lot of people made fun of Epedemicoptikz since they couldn't see that it was two names, Epedemic Optikz. That was mainly my fault though for doing that but I'm gonna shorten it this time to just Epedemic if they don't allow an extra capital letter in the name.

As for my female character, will probably name her Redlof, Claves, or Keludra.

If the name isnt taking all readey i'd name my guy Zodiark, but if it is ill stick to Selond. This name has gotten me through thick and thin in FF11 and it'd nice to see something familiar in this new game, even if it is only the name. And think about it, Remember when you First started FF11 and everything seemed so huge and Exciting. That time when you were a noob Skulking around Sandy/windy/Basty and you knew nothing about the game except you wanted to be blah blah job ASAP. I hope I get that same feeling in FF14, because once you know everything you become bored with it. Please SE dont Copy and Paste FF11 into FF14.

I have like 10 names picked out. I'm such a nerd.

I won't list them because I really want to get it. Lol.

I'm happy with my alternates though.

I guess for curiousity my ffxi guy is Kierkegaard. A pretentious
title while I was in school for philosophy.

My WoW character was Versteckt. Which means hidden in
German. And yes my character was a rogue.

I'm like Kierk. I'll have a list of several prioritized names. My #1 will probably be hard to get (so I'm not going to say it to give anybody any ideas), so I'll just go down the list.

I'm also really hoping they release a character creation demo well before the release so that I can go ahead and figure out how I'll want my character to look. Then when I get the game I won't have to waste precious hours designing my character before I can claim the name I want.

I've always been picky about good names. I wouldn't mind if SE modded ridiculous names even. Hopefully we'll be able to give ourselves changeable, visible titles, which should help alleviate some of the ridiculous names. If you want to be Fluffy Bunny the Galka, you should be able to have your character name appear as Fluffy Bunny Dereka, or Dereka the Fluffy Bunny. Then you hopefully don't have someone named Fluffybunny.

But this is coming from a guy who risked losing his character forever just to change its name.

The same name I have used in every game and MMO since I picked up a controller and played the first Zelda game on a NES. Same name my FFXI char and original WoW char have. Same name my first xbox live account had. (Btw xbox sucks *** at recovering accounts... I really hope FFXIV doesn't have an xbox360 release, and I say this as a player who only owns a 360 and a computer.. I would rather buy a Ps3 than have to link an online account to a live account that has absolutely no recovery mechanisms.)

I hope they let us transfer at least our character names along with friends lists, as in the past couple years my chosen name has been harder and harder to select in online gaming.

Ohhhhh I dunno (yes, I'm lying). Maybe something original yet silly like "Godzilla" or "Stewie Griffin" or "Shaggy" (heh, a vicious DRK player named with a cowardly name like Shaggy). Or I'll stubbornly try to get a blatant copycat lift of classical Final Fantasy names like "Zack" or "Auron" (or "Lulu" for that Male Mithra mule that I might have for giggles)... or wait... Cid!

Yeah, Cid. (Yes, I'm still lying)

Honestly though, I have my names pretty much set and I don't think I'm telling just yet.

There seems to be a possibility that you will be able to reserve your FFXI char name for FFXIV ahead of time so nobody steals it so go make a few new mules guys!
I will be deciding much closer the day of release, doing it now is pointless to me.

I'm kinda hoping they allow a surname, no game really does that I know of, be kinda cool if say your first name had to be unique and you had the option for whatever surname you wanted. Although this may confuse things with *** players them having their names backwards and stuff.

A lot of MMORPGs have surnames: DAoC, EQ2, Warhammer, LoTRO, Guild Wars, and many more I'm sure I don't know of.
