Sticking with Broken Fox. Got it from combining Gray Fox (Metal Gear Solid) with Broken Sword (Hero, the Jet Li movie). It's got a cool ring to it.

Just one name, Starswirl.

I wanted to be Starswirl the Bearded, but Lalafell don't have full beards, and I don't want to be Starswirl the Mustacheoed.

It's a name inspired from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I might have to grab a name from one of the mane 6 and create a female character, but Starswirl will be my mane main.

As of right now, I've only chosen my character's first name—Don. I'm one of those unoriginal people who plans on using their actual first name. I'll choose a last name later.

Edit: Because I'm less grumpy.

It's a secret to everyone.

I am playing it close to the chest since I don't want any copycats or name theft.

That said, is it required to have both names or can you do just one? I never did figure that out.

hmmmm... lots of perverted minds out there i guess.

I think im right there with the rest of most the other posters secret till i own it ;) i will say however i used the google translator English -> Japanese with the english typing for mine... it fits my character perfect and i happened to find alot of really neat names this way if any of you have been kinda on the ropes about your characters name i would highly recommend trying it out at least...

some up for grabs ive thought of...

Kurio Zetsumei or Black Death in English
Papa Smurf ;P lalafell name fo sure...
Aku Kyuten or Evil Sky in english (Sora could also be used for the word sky)
Kurai Mori or Dark Forest in english
Whistle Britches
Bone Collector

I have many many more but i dont want to spoil anyone elses ideas for them...

Edit* actually i went and checked this morning on google translate my spelling is correct and if you go type the word in and then scroll through the 3 ways to spell it im right on with Kuroi...

as for death since im looking at it right now its Zetsumei as correct spelling so i missed it by one letter...

however my lesson was learned and ill be checking everything before posting from now on but dont go to correcting someone else if you didnt look it up yourself as well...

Kurio isn't a word, you misspelled it. You might wanna check your words so you don't end up with the wrong words. Just thought I'd help.

If it's supposed to be japanese, I thought the word for 'black' was just Kuro. No I at the end. I could be wrong, but maybe Rinsui can come clarify. I also think the order of the words might be incorrect as well. Oh and um... Zetsumei, not Zetsumie...

Go to the local university and ask a Japanese professor Smiley: nod

Crafty because I did a lot of crafting, and also because I am crafty :-), Hallie because that is my irl nickname.

My characters name in FFXI was Yukiba (was young when I first started and was watching inuyasha and wolf rain at the time so put those two together to make Yukiba lol..) so kinda sticking to that name and since it has to be two separate names My character name is now Kiba Yu. My g/f (who has never played an MMO or any FF) loves this game and she made a Miqo'te female and named her Skyy Hollow.

So in short Me: Kiba Yu
GF: Skyy Hollow Smiley: blush

First name shorter than last, first name is cool and last name is epic with lore/nerdism.

Bartel Hayward has been my monicker since 1.0, and I'm sticking with it. It's not the most glamorous of names, but it fits for what I wanted. I always knew it would be Bartel, since I've had a Bartel in every mmo I've played, and Hayward just seems to fit that "Olde English" style. It's also a plus that it fits pretty accurately into the naming conventions of hyurs. It's more suited for midlanders, and although I'm a highlander, the RPer in me says that I was actually an orphan born into a midlander family, so the lore still kinda fits. And you know what they say, if the lore fits, you must acquit. Wait, what?

Sticking with what i have as well. Exactly the same character i've had on XI for the last 10 years too, and the first year of 1.0 XIV.

The only thing i'm thinking about is adding a little pointy spanish-swordsman/conquisador beard instead of the smooth shave i've ran around with next to forever now. The character creator is helping a lot. But i just cant decide.

Like a few others, I don't plan on unveiling one of my names, 'cause I know it'll be taken almost immediately (I already fear it'll be taken before I get my...keyboard on it?).

That being said, my original "main" character is going to be a Conjurer (eventual White Mage) named Vione Jenneva. Vione means "Fair", and Jenneva means "Giver of Life". I tried to make it as fitting as possible...

Nah, I usually use Fido Montoya but Fido didn't seem appropriate in this case. But yeah, it is indeed a riff on Inigo from The Princess Bride.
