If not, a generator might be able to help you out!

http://rinkworks.com/namegen/

This place has one of the most intuitive name generators I have ever seen. You can create insulting names, vowel-heavy names, names with apostrophes, mushy names, fantasy names, japanese names, etc. If you don't like the presets, read up a bit on the generator and make your own!

[Edit]For a Lalafell name, under the Advanced Interface, you can type in the letters (with appropriate capitals): "BvBvcv" to end up with a decent idea for a Lalafell first name. Simply take the first two (a consonant plus vowel) or three (a double consonant, such as ph, cl, etc. plus vowel) characters and double them to follow the proper naming convention.

To find a last name, take the ending of the first and apply the appropriate modifier to the front. Example:

First name: Lalashoshi
Section on end: shoshi
Code for last name: "Bv(shoshi)
One that popped up is "Vivishoshi".

And don't forget to double up on the beginning of the name.[/Edit]

My taru in 11 was Kiroh so I was hoping to use that again, but I can't think of a surname that goes with it...

I was hoping to keep with the npc naming tradition of male taru names so I'd need something that either rhymed or had a similar sound with a different vowel.

Consider using the non-preconstructed settings.

Let's see... I believe the Taru names had one more syllable on the family name than the surname. So Kiroh xx/xxx/oh would be the most likely. Let's see what I can conjure up...

Try inputting this for a few tries: sVC(roh)

Note the text box part of the way down the page. It's a start. From there, you might be able to fine-tune the lettering by having the proper pronunciation.

I love helping people come up with neat names with cool meanings. Let me see...here are some last name suggestions Kiroh...

Kiroh Kami (Kami means lord - so your name would be like Lord Kiroh)
Kiroh Kestrel (Kestrel is a kind of hawk)
Kiroh Kewpie (Kewpie means "cupid")
Kiroh Kex (Kex is a hollow plant stem)
Kiroh Keziah (Kezaih is derived from Qetzi'ah, lit. "cassia," the aromatic tree that produces cinnamon.)
Kiroh Khan (Khan is prince)
Kiroh Kingfisher (Kingfisher is a pretty bird)
Kiroh Kismet (from Turk. qismet, from Arabic qismah, qismat "portion, lot, fate," from root of qasama "he divided.")
Kiroh Kraken ("monster of the North Sea," from Norwegian dialectal krake.)

or rhyming Kiroh Pyro

I had meant to look up a name generator, this works just fine! I keep a notepad by my work/play station. I write random stuff down that may make for good names. I'll prolly still be going over ideas up until I start playing the game tho! :)

Some interesting words people may want to take/change for names:

rapparee: "Irish freebooter," 1690, originally "pikeman," from Ir. rapairidhe, pl. of rapaire "half-pike." Kind of soldier prominent in the war of 1688-92. - this might be a cool word to play with for someone who is planning on maining a lancer...

raven: O.E. hræfn (Mercian), hrefn; hræfn (Northumbrian, W.Saxon), from P.Gmc. *khrabanas (cf. O.N. hrafn, Dan. ravn, Du. raaf, O.H.G. hraban, Ger. Rabe "raven," O.E. hroc "rook"), from PIE base *qer-, *qor-, imitative of harsh sounds (cf. L. crepare "to creak, clatter," cornix "crow," corvus "raven;" Gk. korax "raven," korone "crow;" O.C.S. kruku "raven;" Lith. krauklys "crow").
O.E. also used hræmn, hremm. The raven standard was the flag of the Danish Vikings. - I thought I would add this for people who, like me dig ravens but might want something a bit more original/less obvious than "Raven" - there are some good ancient words here to play with.

raw - O.E. hreaw "uncooked, raw," from P.Gmc. *khrawaz (cf. O.N. hrar, M.Du. rau, O.H.G. hrawer, Ger. roh), from PIE base *kreue- "raw flesh" (cf. Skt. kravih "raw flesh," krura- "bloody, raw, hard;" Gk. kreas "flesh;" L. crudus "not cooked," cruor "thick blood;" O.Ir. cru, Lith. kraujas, O.C.S. kruvi "blood;" O.E. hrot "thick fluid, serum"). - These words made me think of a marauder... Hrawer!

lance - from O.Fr. lance, from L. lancea "light spear" (It. lancia, Sp. lanza, Ger. Lanze), possibly of Celt-Iberian origin. The verb meaning "to pierce with a lance" is from c.1300; the surgical sense (properly with ref. to a lancet) is from late 15c. Lance corporal (1786) is from obsolete lancepesade "officer of lowest rank" (1570s), from O.It. lancia spezzata "old soldier," lit. "broken lance."

gladiator - from L. gladiator, lit. "swordsman," from gladius "sword," supposedly from Gaul. *kladyos (cf. O.Ir. claideb, Welsh cleddyf, Breton kleze "sword"), from PIE base *qelad- "to strike, beat."

arrow - O.E. arwan, earlier earh "arrow," possibly borrowed from O.N. ör (gen. örvar), from P.Gmc. *arkhwo (cf. Goth. arhwanza), from PIE base *arku- "bow and/or arrow," source of Latin arcus (see arc). The ground sense would be "the thing belonging to the bow," perhaps a superstitious avoidance of the actual name. A rare word in O.E., where more common words for "arrow" were stræl (cognate with the word still common in Slavic, once prevalent in Germanic, too; meaning related to "flash, streak") and fla, flan, a N.Gmc. word, perhaps with the sense of "splinter." Stræl disappeared by 1200; fla lingered in Scottish until after 1500.

Egbert- masc. proper name, from O.E. Ecg-beorht, lit. "sword-bright."

Latin: falx = "sickle."

lol, sorry I love words hope people don't mind the weird/random suggestions

Using your current street name, or the street name where you grew up can make for good impromptu last names. Sometimes you don't have to alter them. I Like "Summerset" But my Husband says its not manly enough for him.

Now THAT is going to be the hard part. If some names are released beforehand, that'd be great. Looking at Ul'Dah, we have a Lalafell name (which looks almost identical to Tarutaru conventions). Actually, looking a bit further, check out the guilds listed in each area. They have the guildmasters with names.

some of them would be hard - but who is going to use full names on vent anyway? people always shorten things - you gotta know everyone is going to call you by a shortform of your first name for the most part.

:)

That said some of them are easy:

Kruvi (Blood)
Lanze (Lance)
Lanza (Lance)
Kleze (Sword)

etc

It was a joke. I wasn't going to use that name. :P It's the name of an elf in a fantasy novel I've read. The first time I read the name I was like: ..!.. you author

Not going to say my name (so that I don't have people snatching it on whatever server I goto :P) but because I'm trying to be a novel writer, I base all my game characters around them and thankfully I have given them not only a first and last name, but a middle name and even nicknames so its really easy for me. In fact its the main reason I'm kind of peeved they decided to do $3.00 for each additional character. I can't capture all my novel series characters and make them my own :(. Still some of them have really obvious names that are likely taken away real quickly in an MMO, with a surname it makes it really easy to get that one name I want so I guess I'm happy in that regard :)

Watch out for Atmos Watts, Full-time Conjurer, part time Alchemist. :D

^ Same reason why I don't want to say mine but I'm pretty sure it won't see a common variation or exact one on different servers.

When I do come up with names I try to come up with stuff that relates to my personal life/memories (my posting name stems from it too) to give a better connection with my character. I like that I become attached to my avatar and it pretty much becomes an extension of myself. That's probably one of the reasons I liked XI a lot is because you really only played on one character minus the mules.

I'm still kind of iffy with the last names though so I think I may try to think of names with two first names kind of like how Korean names are.

God, I'm stuck in a situation. I have three names I used in my online games, but can't pick between the three. In XI I was known as Sylvanna. In WoW I had Yukaiko and Artemede, actually had 4 in WoW, but I personally can't picture a Miq'ote named OBlackbetty, but I could see a male of the larger races named Nomala. Don't even get me started on surnames, I can't pick a first name and they expect me to choose a last name?
