Best of the worst character names?

PostAuthor: Manuel the White » Wed Aug 17, 2005 7:16 pm

So here is a selection of actual character names we've made players change. This is just a bit of fun as some folks don't know any better or jump right in without reading all the rules.

Don't bash anybody (too much)!

There have been worse ones but I just don't feel like going that far back in history....
ACTIVE CHARACTERS: Casey Landry, Jessie Morrice
SOMETIMES CHARACTERS: Silinde, Luthias
INACTIVE CHARACTERS: Manuel (the White) Thay't Le'Megen, Zven Reaplenoose, Drashter Volterz

Had to go with Jesse James. I can't stand that name, having Jesse as a first name bites. I was called Jesse James or Jesse "the Body" Ventura most of my life. Well, that and Jesse Owens. And Messy Jesse. And being a red head didn't help. And the whole step child thing just really screwed me up. What's that? Time for meds?

Anyway, yeah, don't like that name.

*scratches head* Your supposed to read the rules first. *runs off to create a new character now that he learns "Harry Anus" worshipper of the Giant Spaghetti Monster in the Sky isn't an acceptable character premise*

I'm sorry but Jesse has nothing on Stewart. I mean honestly naming your kid Stewart is like dooming him to be a D&D nerd in high school with no mentionable athletic prowess. What? This wasn't supposed to be autobiographical? Sorry about that. *runs to join Jesse at the pharmacy*

Wasn't there a charachter named "Elvis"? That'd probably get my vote.

I liked the guy I once saw logged in as:

THIS IS A TEST

No joke. I sent him a polite Tell, that even while just checking out the server, it might be better to have a real name.

*Makes fun of people named Stewart* :P

I don't think this guy is around anymore, and I enjoyed some of our rp encounters, but I could never take him seriously:

Mitchem ent De'Odor

Anyone ever use Mitchem Deodorant?

It's like naming a PC: Gillette du'Sensor

:nope:

I heard that was a side effect of the golem. Something to do with using all you skill points and then choosing a race which has an Int penalty
