Great guide thanks for taking the time to make this !
my Goblin mage has the name: Grînch :P
Male Dwarf Hunter called Vanin.
Female Draenei Paladin called Danatharia.
Male Worgen Rogue called Mithridates.
I'm pretty happy actually, especially as I severely doubted that Mithridates, considering how awesome that name is, would be unused.

I dont see the need for accents over letters; or sentence names.. I have two "pun" names, but they're not overly obvious or obnoxius.
My Human Death Knight is Necromortus (misspelled, should be "is" not "us".), also Latin for "Death of Death". Necro:death, mortisf death.

troll druid named Zainra, thought it sounded pretty trolly
Although, i have 2 characters with kind of joke names. Orc shaman named Shamberlampz and a tauren warrior named Mulghore
Your powers are useless on me you silly billy...
best name for a dwarf hunter...Kegger, and his pets Bud the Bear, Coors the Snow Lion, Vodka the Owl, and Guiness the Wolf.
<Insert something witty and humorous here>
Nice guide =) i always have trouble naming my characers. And for the nickname i think is quite important =P
i named my troll rouge "Jazzakhan" just so people would have to nic me "Jazz" =)
and btw here is a wonderful website filled with names
One day I named a toon Videotape. Random decision, but it stuck.
Now all of my toons are tapes:
Everyone just calls me "tape."
Anyway, nice guide. Considering the amount "dkdenmarkdk" there are, I guess a lot of people can use some imagination. I always know the name right when I'm finished creating my toon, I never really have to think about it.
Yeah I went with a theme too, my first toon on Khaz was Dreadbringer then along came BC and I had planned on rolling a Belf lock as a lock was my first toon on my old server and much to my surprise dreadlock was available (love seeing other locks with different spellings on my server) Had a hunter but didnt want him associated with the others but had his name changed to dreadjäger jäger being German for hunter, then dreadshifter although dreadybear would have been better, fatherdread kinda sounds like father ted, pally just got called dready as thats what my guild called me, DK fallendread, rogue dreadstabber and my goblin shammy is Everdready like the brand of battery
Perhaps you should consider adding a section on pet names?
It seems every hunter who has a wolf uses something like "Fang" and half the bear pets have to have the name of "Grizzly", ditto with "Fluffy" for cats. Then there are the comedians, I wish I had a dollar for every hunter that I've seen with a monkey called spank, spanks, spanky etc. Ok, it kind of got a few chuckles the first time, but after the tenth time you've group with a hunter spamming "Spanks the Monkey" emotes during battle, it gets a little old.
Another tip, keep your name short, the shorter the name, the more likely people will remember you.
my rogue was originally a Gnome. Im a fan of Bruce Lee. To both go along with a popular Bruce Lee tactic, the fact that hes a ninja, and the fact that gnomes are short and rogues are lethal. I chose...
Again, thank you guys for the warm feedback and the names you've added. Keep 'em coming!
