I can't decide on my nameFollow

I have come to you all humbly for some sage advice. :( I know some of you probably won't care, but I'm facing a major dilemma. :(

Before FFXI my online handle was always OnionWarrior... then when I decided to start as a thief because it seemed more challenging, I changed it to OnionThief.

Now obviously in FFXIV there's no real "thief" persay, and it doesn't look like they're every going to add a class called thief (assassin, if it comes out, may be very thiefy, but it's not the same for me).

So here's the bottom line: I'm thinking about changing my character name to some other permutation of onion to better suit FFXIV. I'll list some of the contenders:

- Onion Gunner (for an eventual musketeer main)
- Onion Lancer (this caught my eye: http://hooffoot.deviantart.com/art/Onion-lancer-74148928?q=sort%3Atime+favby%3APandalee&qo=186)
- Onion Warrior (a return to the roots)
- Onion Bandit (an archer, like robin hood maybe?)
- Any other permutaion of Onion [Profession]
- Just stay Onion Thief!

I've basically deleted my character and restarted like 10 times already. I really can't decide. For me it's not "what's in a name", my name defines my character and how I think about it. I kind of like to sit there in class/work and daydream about FFXIV, imagining what type of adventures my Onion could be getting into... and these might change, based on what his profession is, of course. I've even been writing a short story (just for myself) to try and explain the transition of OnionThief from XI to XIV, how he got to Eorzea and such. It could also include an explanation of how or why his name changed. <_<

Please just tell me whichever one you think sounds best. ^^

Edit: HAVE FUN WITH THIS!!!

I thought about Onion Knight or something, but it's almost too... predictable. And Onion Helm is just equipment, not really like a defining characteristic. :/

I was just making a super bad joke, it's an item in game.. I personally feel Onion Bandit's got the best ring to it, out of all those suggestions.

Maybe something a bit more generic/adventurer oriented?

Onion Pioneer
Onion Explorer
Onion Voyager

A brave Onion setting out to craft his own story.

I stay pick the original, "Onion Thief".

It's original, creative, rolls nicely and the words fit together naturally.

If you need a tie-breaker though, I also really like Bandit.

It seems to be the more nimble classes are your passion, and either name would be quite flexible for your identity.

And if I may some suggestions though that are synonyms of thief and offer more adventure flexibility as far as name is concerned: Outlaw, pilferer, felon, raider, rogue.

I happen to really like rogue and pilferer.

Onion King, Onion Voyager, and Onion Bandit seems to the the front runners. Or Onion Thief. :o

Since there's no thief class, Onion Thief still works! You are the stealer of onions!

I wouldn't go with a name of a specific class in case you want to switch what you do. Going to be strange being 'Onion Pugilist' as a thaumaturge.

Well that's part of the problem, really. None of the class names really work with the first name Onion, haha.

Oh, I don't think I mentioned it before, but I want to play a Lala if that makes any difference (and was a taru in XI). ^^

So I wanted to change it to Onion Bandit and everyone (RL, in game) started to rage at me, lol... My sister who is 17 now watched me play the XI beta like 8 years ago for an entire summer and got really attached to the name Onion Thief. She said it's like I'm killing her childhood friend, and is refusing to talk to me or "support" my brewing XIV addiction if I change it. >_> I even tossed a coin 3 times, and 3 times in a row between Onion Thief and Onion Bandit, and every time it landed on OT… can’t mess with random chance I guess.

Still, I love the name Onion Bandit. Perhaps next time around... for now, Onion Thief.

Thanks for all your input-- I really do appreciate it immensely. That’s why I love these forums. <3

Absolutely huge necrobump.

I hope I don't come off as somewhat self-centered, but with the relaunch of ARR I'm right back where I started, haha. I'm considering Scholar as my main... someone suggested hat I try Scallion Scholar, which sounds hilarious in my mind and I'm seriously considering! Since we (1.0 players) only get a one time name change I want to make it count, so I figured I'd turn to you guys again for advice. :-)

So, based on ARR in particular, any suggestions to add to the amazing ideas above?
