    What will you be Naming your Characters?

    Title.

    I've personally decided to go with Hikari (light) for my female Monk, and Kage (shadow) for my male Demon Hunter. Brings about a nice contrast of the two. I might also settle with Ryuusei (meteor) for my male/female Wizard. But beyond those, I'm not quite sure yet.

    And yes, my love for japanese-esque names is quite evident among my WoW characters as well.

    I don't know, names don't feel important to me in a world where you only interact with a couple of other people at a time.
    Win and live. Lose and die.
    Rule of life. No change rule.
    Running worse than losing.
    Random casual stuff now

    The chat room avatar's were kinda of cool in the original b.net so names kinda meant something then.

    I'll be going with.....err Azuri maybe :P

    Names are non unqiue, so having a unique slowflake of a name isnt that big a deal.

    Im think Xx420_KillerCopQuickScope_420xX, or you know...Something simple like Aaron

    Hm...my bowazon was Luna / Loona / something like that in D2. Trying that direction first but expect it to be too popular / unavailable depending how naming is handled.

    So, in short: the internet.

    They've said they want to do naming like they did in SC2, that is, you can name it whatever you want, and account ID will instead be handled by a number tag. That means everyone can name his demon hunter Sephiroth if he really wants to.

    Likely Ovacor considering I have used that name on online games since I was about 10. Although it may be time for a change

    I like how there's a couple of people in this thread who think this is talking about Pandaren Monks. Look at the forum you're posting in, guys!

    Personally I'll probably use names from WoW for my characters. Alternatively I'll go for names of characters from my story I'm working on: it's how I always choose my names. I take forever with choosing an entirely new name, so I re-use old ones as much as possible to avoid that.
