    Hunter named Staal [main] (Favorite player on my favorite sports team, the New York Rangers)

    A Priest named Clearlyamage

    A Warrior named Docilebirds

    A DK named Theshortbus.

    Some violations I guess, but noone has complained and I like them.

    Nice guide, shame I saw it after I named all my alliance characters but I can still use it for a few hordies when I can't find any inspiration.

    Names from my own characters:
    - Fave: Draenei shaman named Ishanuumor; just fits perfectly to me somehow, outlandish but pronouncable.
    - Worst: Gnome Mage named Mekkatinker, just feels like such a standard name

    Why not name a female goblin Yaddle? Untouchable. Hurrhurrhurr...

    Male Spacegoat Shammy "Garybusey"
    Hair and horns to match his hair ... if only wow had teeth
    Druid resto Seasicktree

    but nothing beats a Death Knight named Cliffrichard for the starting area alone.

    If only this where true for me. --> azmaria to assmario in my guild because someone didn't read it right and I've been stuck with it since -.-
    nice guide though I'm gonna have to point this one out to a friend so he doesn't come up with some strange thing for a name again.

    Hello.
    After hours trying to come up with a female gnome warlock name, I've chosen to ask for help.
    It's gotta be either a gnomish name, or just an usual female WoW name such as 'Areliaa' (already taken :<).

    Thanks!

    EDIT: yes, I've tried all the tips in the OP. Guess I'm just really, really bad at naming.. :<
    EDIT2: nvm, came up with Eloria. Best name evah!

    I've recently noted that a lot of female names end with the letter "a" in WoW. Just thought I'd give you guys some heads up that if you want to have an original name, you may want to try some other endings that also sound feminine, such as:

    - ine, yne, yn, inne // ane, one, une...
    - ale, ole, ile, ule...
    - shi, psi, pso, phy...

    That's all I got for today. Feel free to disagree if you don't like the idea !

    Yeah, all of those are violations.

    See: http://us.blizzard.com/support/artic...=20368#partial

    That said, MANY people get away with names like this, but everyone should be aware that if they catch a GM in a fussy mood, a forced name change could be incoming.
    Partial or Complete Sentences
    This category includes names which:

    Consist of multiple (generally more than 2) words strung together to create partial or complete sentences (i.e. Inyourface, Welovebeef, Howareyou)


    Contain "Leet" or "Dudespeak"
    This category includes names which:

    Consist of language existent only in online communication (i.e. Roflcopter, xxnewbxx, Roxxoryou)


    Wtf, never knew they had so much restrictions on the names..

    For warlock names you can either specc into Demo, metamorph and speak, or ask another warlock to cast curse of tongues on you and pronounce different names.

    Spider - Rakkan.
    Slayer - Azgala.
    Darkness - Kirasath
    Shadow - Karkun
    Demon - Gular.
    Demonic - Zennshi.

    And people won't know you have those "12y old names" because they sound a hell of a lot cooler in demonic. You can also try to use some more "dirty" words, I know another word for vagina turns into Zenn, and the racist word for black turns into Archim, we also have words that turn into Rethul and Belan, but I won't list these since that could be offensive to some.

    Just a tip ;d

    This is actually a pretty kick ass suggestion, sir. I will add it, with your permission and credit, to the first page guide. If for whatever reason you want it removed, feel free to post about it or mp me.

    I tip my hat to you

    Well, a ton of other words "translate" to Zenn or Archim too, it's just how the representation of "foreign" languages work in wow...

    You can't really expect them to make an entire dictionary in demonic for the game, right?;p I know there are some duplicates in the translation from english to demonic, and there is probably a fairly limited range of vocabulary, but it's still a quite fun feature.

    I'll put up my toon names that I think are pretty decent. Steal them if you'd like.
    Donateblood - hemo spec rogue from tbc days
    Dontletmedie - healer
    Waitforaggro - paladin tank
    Spekkio - druid (10 points for getting the name reference)
    Mistasneaky - AH rogue
    Instaqueue - DK tank

    My other toons are much deeper references so they're not really for the average person.

    Named my DK 'Sonofalich'

    Shamelessly stolen from someone else's suggestion a year or so ago.

    Donateblood, Instaqueue and Sonofalich all made me grin like an idiot :]
