I am having a hard *** time selecting a first and a last name in the game. How did you guys go about this?
In Final Fantasy XI i used Alkaiser which is what i use for all mmorpg i play and comes from a ps1 rpg called saga frontier.

Having to pick something else feels weird to me since no mmorpg have your first and last name or people won't call you by first and last name all the time also.

How do you guys feel about adding title then name? like Lord Finalfantasy or King FinalFantasy ( these are random example of course)

do people in game call you by first or last name or the title?

when i made character in beta i called it meow master because i didn't want to spend time thinking of one and was beta testing game.

Lol. Think there's the answer.

I split mine, reluctantly.

The two name thing makes me rage to no end, but meh. A hole's a hole.

My name in XI was Noodles. After server merges it was changed to Noody. My name in XIV is Noodle Cup but most just call me Noodle, Nood, Noody or any odd variance you can think of.

If your name in XI was Alkaiser why not go with it and add a last name to your liking, or do what some have done and put your XI name along with the XI server you played on.

King Alkaiser sounds cheesy though. :P

Cid Barrett - 2 characters from FF7 + Pink Floyd reference = win

My original character was Leeloo Digitalis. 5th Element reference, and digitalis sounds cool & similar to Dallas. Plus a poisonous flower fit with an innocent-looking lalafell chick capable of great evils.

People who knew me from the beginning still sometimes call me Leeloo when I'm on the Cid character. So either Leeloo or Cid works.

My character's name in XI was "Niami," and it was just something I came up with off the top of my head after the first 10 names I tried had been taken lol. My XIV name is Aveline Blue, and I picked Aveline from the first Dragon Age game: it's a tale about a woman knight that Leliana will tell you if you get her friendly enough. And I thought it sounded like a pretty name. I'd never have picked it if I had known they were going to make one of the main Dragon Age 2 characters named Aveline. T_T

The last name "Blue" I came up with as a backstory for my character's family (for RP purposes), it's got all this history, and namechanging and stuff, so in the story, Blue isn't actually her real last name, it's a name her mom took up to hide her identity when she moved to Ul'dah.

During Beta I was using a last name. I had just finished watching the Millenium films trilogy... So I went with Salader, Wickhart Salander.

I used the same name after the game came out. Then I quit for several months and when I came back I couldn't stand it. Come to think of it I can't stand having to choose a second name. I was Wickhart in FFXI and most people called me Wick.

My new char is Wick Hart. Its not the best but its my name.

P.S. I can totally relate to Dark Mod!

Was shocked that the name wasn't take, to be honest.

My first character was Kirby Starbreaker (from one of the premium titles here).
I just got tired of looking at a dudes *** (lol), even though he resembles my FFXI character.

For my second character, I went with Krystal Spoonless. I kinda regret the first name, since its such a common fantasy/fictional name, but whatever.
I picked the last name to troll someone into playing, but his PC can't run the game, so that didn't really work very well...

Smiley: lol the amount of people telling me to get a spoon, or offering to get me one since I started on it..

Shoulda gone with Sporkless, Kirby. Everyone knows it's much better to be offered a spork than a spoon.

I generally use LouIsCool in games, but this game has the First and last name dilemna.

I thought I wanted to play Pugilist, so I chose Coolhand Lou, after the movie Cool Hand Luke.

Or an exotic dancer / prostitute's alias - can't forget the *** industry.

Lets see, my first FFXI character was Reaschua, I knew I wanted her to be a Dragoon from the start. The name was a fusion of Asian and German and I thought that suited her nicely.
My second XI character was Zurina, chosen more or less at random becuase I was depressed I couldn't find my old acount info.

For XIV me and Sis got together and decided on semi matching names since we would be playing Twins in game to match our RL :P The surname was the name of the remote village we came up with for them to have come from.

My character's name in FFXI is Strummer (I wanted to be a Bard). When I started XIV, I wanted my character to be reminiscent of Strummer without being just a prettier version of him. So I went with Sturm Murmur, which fits him quite well.

I died a lot as a Bard in FFXI...

So..."Suicide is Painless"...for you MASH fans out there.

It also fit since I wanted to start as an Archer.
