Here’s a light and fluffy question to kick off our morning just right: What is the meaning behind your character name or names in MMOs?
I’m fascinated with how people come up with their names. Sometimes they can are picked with minimum thought and effort (add as many x’s as necessary), many times they are twisted abominations of names from popular culture, but often they speak to surprising depth and player personality.
I’ve had a few repeated names over the years in my MMOs. “Syp” was chosen because I like short names and figure most people only type three letters into chat anyway when talking to you. “Ghostfire” was pulled from a Magic: the Gathering card. “Yeti Yesterday” had pleasing alliteration and sounded like a time-travel agent with an excessive hair problem.
