    Paladins! Share your name origins

    I am Anaxie. I used to be known by another name when I was a horrid Draenei Male before sex change was enabled within the game.

    My name was Anaxes the name came from

    Treatise is my paladin.

    I chose the name because I am an English teacher, so forms of literature interest me, and I try to name my characters with literary/grammatical (or cinematic) meaning. Following that, treatises always seem to be aimed at declaring intent and/or establishing diplomacy, and I thought that was a good base for a paladin.

    My Tauren Paladin is Torahn. A play on words. Quite fitting actually.

    My paladin is a male dorf named Artty. My real name (Arttu) was already taken, so it became Artty instead.

    Name of my human Paladin is Thorenor. I wanted Löwenherz, but it was already taken so I had to think about something new. And somehow "Thorenor" came into my mind. Some kind of mix between the hammer-wielding God and a name that would fit into Lord of the Rings Since then Knights, Paladins or heavy melee in other games are "Thorenor" as well.

    I am Lunethzero, but later was able to change my name to Lune. People never really said my full name anyways and that's where I got the idea to just make it official. The name originated from Final Fantasy 3, which at the time was the best one I had played. I was not able to use the name Luneth as apparently it was a popular name to almost every server which for some reason all were lvl 1 to 10s. Years later I had noticed that apparently there is an NPC with my name in Northrend that goes by the name of Illusia Lune in wintergarde keep. It was definitely a funny coincidence but to be fair my name was there before Wrath so yeah lol

    My Blood Elf male Paladin is called Wanderlust. He's named after my favorite Nightwish song.

    I have two Paladins, first is Andruh my Alliance Human Paladin. It felt both fantasy-y and proper for a Human. Now my Blood Elf she is named Fheona. I named her that when I was going through a Burn Notice phase lol.

    Brofist, dunno why but it just popped up into my head after i'd server changed ( my name was taken Q_Q).
    I've got a reputation on my server for ridiculous names though, i've got a DK whose name is Bouillabaisse, which is an asteroid the french named, turns out it also means fish soup.
    Why did the french decide to name an asteroid after Fish Soup?

    Penitent ... for the time honoured trope of disgraced knights who forswear title, land and glory to atone for past misdeeds.

    My Paladin's name is Kyuusaisha, which is Japanese for Savior, which is pretty apt for a Holy Paladin ^^.
