    Death Knight names that are actually names.

    Here's a few suggestions for naming your Death Knight; they're names that are actually names, not zomgpwntu, so hope you find something you like that isn't already taken on your server:

    Oh yeah, there are only female names, the only once I've considered since my Death Knight is going to be a female.

    Akasuki (Means 'fond of red' - Japanese)
    Akuja (Refers to the girl in a Japanese legend)
    Alexa (Means 'defender of man' - gogo DK tank?)
    Alexandra (Means 'defender of man')
    Anastasia (Means 'resurrection' - Russian)
    Apollyon (Refers to Abaddon, the angel of death from the Bible - Greek)
    Avadon (Refers to Abaddon - variation, can't remember the language)
    Ciara (Means 'dark')
    Jenovah (Reference to FFVII, a comination of Nova and Jehovah, probably meaning 'new god')
    Judith (just seems to fit, lol, simply means From Judea though, -Hebrew)
    Melanie (Means 'dark')
    Naissa (Derived from 're(Naissa)nce' meaning resurrection)
    Nastasya (Variant of Anastasia, meaning ressurection - Russian)
    Neiva (Means 'snow')
    Nevada (Means 'snow')
    Oriana (Means 'to rise')

    Not much of a list, but hope it helps someone. All of the names are actually from a language somewhere, and can be researched. The ones with the language noted are noted only because I happened to remember without looking it up. The ones not noted I couldn't remember, and I'm too lazy to look them up again.

    Apollyon is the [Greek] variant of Abaddon. Abaddon means "the destroyer", not "the angel of death".

    Although, Shinitenshi would be a pretty cool name.

    Edit: Fixed. It's been 12 years since I did classics. I'm sorry.

    Apollyon is Greek, not Roman, and although it means 'the destroyer', it's the translation of Abaddon, from the Bible, which is the name of the angel of death aka the angel of the bottomless pit, which is why I said 'refers to' blah blah instead of 'means' blah blah.

    OK, I'll bite...

    Male DK names I'm tossing around:

    Schaard (no meaning)
    Xanon (No Meaning, but was the name of my DE SK from EQ)
    Shinigami (God of Death/Grim Reaper - Japanese)
    Tenjou no Hou (Flame of Heaven - Japanese)
    Schwarzewitwe (Black Widow - German, would use for Female)
    Finsterfürst (Literally, Dark Prince - Bastardized version of Fürst der Finsternis - Prince of Darkness - German)
    Panzerfaust (Bazooka - German)
    Stahl (Steel - German)
    Lelouche (Because Lelouche vi Britannia is a B A M F)
    Todesengel (Angel of Death - German)
    Menschenfresser (Cannibal - German)
    Dosvidanja (Go with God/Goodbye - Russian)
    Teufelhund (Hellhound - German)
    Verboten (Forbidden - German)
    Urusai (Shut-up - Japanese)
    Pimmelmann (Hilarious if you can get it, and its musical reference)
    Panzermensch (Armored/Tank Man - German)
    Weitergehn (To go further/to push forth - German)
    Gottlos (Godless - German)
    Zeromus (FFIV/II US reference)
    FuSoYa (THE MAN HIMSELF)
    Zero (If only DKs had Geass...)

    I just see a Death Knight with... harsher sounding names than most, I guess =V

    I reserved the following names for my DK on my server:
    -Lichblood
    -Acherus
    -Deathplague
    -Wrathmaar

    I find them preety decent for a DK name

    Re: Death Knight names that are actually names.

    My male humand DK will be named Shinukage, wich means as much as "Shadow of Death" in Japanese (or "Death's Shadow, seen it translated like that aswel, depends on context I presume)

    Virulence : extreme harmfulness

    The word fits as a name, and sounds pretty cool.

    stolen from a DK talent xD

    Re: Death Knight names that are actually names.

    I started off with Noktismorté then moved to Nexmilitis (both roughly meaning Death Knight) and eventually decided on Cryogenix as a frost spec tank
    This user has been permanently banned for trolling due to this post:

    "Nope not read the feral patch notes because i no longer play a druid (not played it for ages to be honest - she's sat at 70 in SW for about 8 months now) I read the DK patch notes and i scan the rest to see if there is anything that directly affects me - this change to ferals does not directly affect me thus i didnt take the time to read it.

    Ferals are a boring class - get over yourself twat."

    I'm not a religious person, but female human DK would be Jezebel (A woman who worshipped a "false god" named Baal in the old testament and died for it)

    Man ... i made my Auctioner character under that name and i never knew she will worship a "false god" named "Money"
    Thank you for that enlightenment

    Btw as a DK name i think name should fit the Character and his race/look
    So i figured out that my DK will be Orc with white beard and for that of all the names reserved i liked most " RUNIC "

    Keep in mind that females remember 2 word names easier and males of wich most of the regular WoW Players are remember easier names of 1 word! This can also take part upon the decision of your future DK name. Want to be remembered by most of the people on your server or not

    P.S. Everyone wants to name his character something Uber ... But Uber names that nobody knows what they mean are not that Uber
    There for simple names that contain parts that reffer to a Death Knight can be more interesting to yoru friends
    Names that contain Darkness, Death, Dread, Knight, Frost, Blood, Rune, Blade, etc.

    The whole of your name being something like "Crissaegrim" is to see who recognizes it from it's original context, where you can make a common "dude, i know where you're name comes from" interest. You'll make more like minded friends that way, and if you're smart, like minded is great for guildies.

    I usually have to ignore people who have names like "deathweaverdude" or "imapallylol" because of the mindless crap spewing endlessly from their rotten stickhole and into /2

    Names containing elements of you're spec/class are NOT uber, they are unoriginal and unthoughtful, unless you can give an example of your own that isn't so, then i'll have to disagree with you.

    because we all know names like "belfhunter" are uber.
