The Daily Grind: What’s the story behind your MMO character’s name?


When I see a character cross my path with the name “XxDoodyHeadxX,” I’m not usually that curious about how such a name came about. Presumably it was just a random firing brain cell and an ill-timed fart. But I certainly do grow intrigued when I encounter players with beautiful or seemingly significant character names. I want to know why they picked them and what those names mean to them.

So I guess I’ll just ask all of you that today. What’s the story behind your MMO character’s name? How did it come about? Is it a name you use in a lot of games or just one specific title?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
