Overpopulation?

Has anyone else gotten mad at how whenever you try and make a character name all the good ones are usually taken? Blizzard should try and delete all the characters that have been inactive for a while, i don't know though...What do you think? :cool:

Creativity is the name of the game. Not all names are taken up, but it takes some thought. I created a lightning sorceress, and I called her "StepInto" (you know, "step into the light"). My girlfriend created a sorceress and called her "Apprentiss," because if you say it outloud "The Sorceress Apprentiss" it sounds a lot like "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," from Fantasia. Neither of those required any sorts of crazy names with insane misspellings or anything, but yeah, all the obvious names have been taken up. You can always try your initials followed by something.

Just don't get frustrated and use names like "XxXxXHAMMERZXxXx" and "XXXMETEORXXX". My new ladder light sorc is "Spark_Plug". Not that hard to think of decent names.

Playing around with the spelling of words to produce the same sound can be useful too. I made Taliya, then when I remade I use Talyia. Same with my pally that went from Dakkion to Dakhion then back to Dakkion when I remade a third time. My MF sorc has gone through alot of spelling changes. Shyvera, Shyverah, Shyveria.

I also tend to research. My Assassin is named after the cult that gave birth to assassination as we know it. The Order of Ismali I believe it was.

Greek names for my Amazons. I was shocked to find out Andromache was NOT taken (it is now muwahahaha).

A friend of mine ends all of her char's names with her initials if they are otherwise taken. :)

i like simple names, like "Spark_Plug"

So try to be creative

if your trying to think of a fire sorc, think of something hot then incorparate it in the name

you can also try a clan then where you put something before your name then -

I use Mythilogical Amazon Names for my Amazons, what else are there? I also like to put titles to character names such as AthenaTheSharp or UtherTheNoble.

I think you should make a hisgrandfather and hergrandfather this way it reads (fred) was slain by his grandfather :D just a suggestion. Ive seen A_Duck and that was pretty funny.
(Bob) was slain by A_Duck! :lol:

@RiderPride: good luck finding a good name. Try to incorporate words that apply to the build and the name should turn out nice. Rememer alot of thaught shoud go into your names, after all if your planning on keeping the character up you dont want to see:

kjhsafasdf
asdfml;
asdffdl

As you character names. :lol:
