Do you stick to them, or do you go all wacky? Discuss.

You named an elf "Lady Pants" or you named a lady elf "Pants"?

If there's a default, I'll go with that.

However, if I have to name a character, I usually just think of something really vulgar.

When I was younger, I named characters after myself and my friends. If I play those games, I continue the tradition :O

If it's an RPG like fallout, I just name em after myself.

I name them after myself/friends. I usually stick with the same names if I replay a game more than once, even if those people are long gone in my life. The rival in Pokemon is named after some kid I hated in 7th grade and I've used that name whenever I play Pokemon ever since

I NEVER Name Characters after myself because...what if my character dies?....for some reason it makes me feel bad. :'(

Anyway I usually name my characters around the lines of "IMRICKJAMESBITCH"

I usually name the chars after myself and friends of mine. My friend names them ridiculous things. Like in FF8 he named Shiva "Ice Whore" just for the opening dialogue when you go to fight Ifrit he's like "Oh, I see you have Ice Whore, my nemesis!"

The summons in FFX got some bad treatment, like naming the first one DEFAULT, there was also Stanky and Ron because "Big Pimp Daddy From Cincinnati" didn't fit.

Anyway, aside from horrible Chappelle Jokes I usually don't care what my name is going to be because like most RPGs its Single Player. Unless were talking about World of Warcraft (please God! No!)

Hm, I use other Net-Nicks of mine normally (no, they don´t involve numbers or multiple words and they don´t make sense or sound vulgar) or I just call the character Miles. For some reason I like the name Miles, don´t know why. But I only rename the main characters, the rest can keep their identities.

I usually keep the defaults names.


Unless it's a game that makes you name you character, like Mass Effect or Fallout 3, then I usually name them after myself.

I used to name the characters on 16-bit rpgs like Final Fantasy 3 or Breath of Fire after my friends and pets.

I suppose if I still played rpgs I would keep the defaults now.
