The other day I learned the word "onomastics
," because Bree likes to club us over the head with big words so that we'll go away whimpering and leave her to playing Guild Wars 2
. Anyway, we were talking about how we both have a character name file, although on my computer it's just called "character names
" and not something that makes me think of doing back flips off of a high beam.
I love a good name. A good name, in my opinion, sets you apart from the pack. It tells others that you didn't just slap letters together like a common monkey learning how to type for the first time. It may even generate respect among some. It gets you noticed, is what I'm saying, and it gets you remembered.
So what is the best character name you've seen that wasn't one you used yourself? Was it just a great word, a clever pun, or something else that exuded awesomeness?
