Vaentorian was my first 'serious' UO character, created after I relocated to Europa shard. Jonathen was the next. It's likely I'll bring one or two others over into SotA but Vaentorian has been my 'main' alter ego ever since he appeared in Sosaria, to the point that I've even written a feature film script about him (unpublished if there are any producers here looking for a hot new property )
As for how I originally came up with the name... it just sounded right in my head!
My name means "pretty banana" in Andorian.
That was a char I played on UO named by my brother after he crashed his bike
Read it backwards
Hmmm it just might work for a Kobold after all ....
Rada, from Radagast (my favourite Maiar), and my first name used in MMOs back in 1997.
Torment, from one of the best RPGs of all times, Planescape Torment.
Rentier (= Rendeer ) an phoenetic anagram with one added char (to make sense again) of my real first name
Woodpicker because as I first was asked about a family name for my elven rpg-character I saw one outside on the tree...
"Sannio" is Latin for a character in a play that acts as a fool. It's the name I chose when I became a Seer (event volunteer) in Ultima Online many years ago, before I worked in the gaming industry. When I did start working in games, I kept using that name.
Iason is the name of the the great legendary hero in the lore of the first roleplaying game I ever played, Miracle Warriors. Paragon, is for the 'Paragon of Virtue', Huma Dragonbane, who is the great hero of legend in the lore of the Dragonlance series, which is the first fantasy series I ever read.
@Sannio You are definitely NOBODY'S fool
I am Net, wherever the name is not taken. Which is rather rare. Anyway good luck googling me up
As for the meaning, it is net as in network or internet.
Sara was always my favorite female name (not with the h!). Had many crushes on Saras throughout my years
Enjoyed reading these. My main avatar name is 'Caernarvon Cedarwood' which refers to the town in Wales (now spelled 'Caernarfon').
I've often used Scottish or Welsh place names for my character names down the years, they have a nice ring to them and can fit the ambience of some MMO's quite well. Plus being English with Welsh and Scottish blood from my mums's side I feel a little compelled to give a tip of the hat to my ancestry. As for the Cedarwood part, well that's just a little bit of alliteration, and the whole 'wood' part seems to fit well with Caernarvon being an archer primarily.
My next SOTA avatar though will be a homage to a character referenced in another much loved RPG from my childhood in the mid 1980's aside from the Ultima series, can't wait to get that one up and running.
I always use two names from UO, Maedhros, my favorite elf in the Silmarillion. And Nubby Eerwiggles, because I have long wiggly ears.
Elaina was my name in UO.... Why? I need a female character name and I just liked the sound of it. So now, 21 years later... I'm still rolling with it. The Strongbow just came from me typically playing an archer. Easy peasy… Great thread @Alleine Dragonfyre !!!
My avatar's name is Dar. It doesn't mean anything. I just find it amusing to have a minimalist name in a world where most people have fancy titles, surnames, and guilds.
"Oh look. Here comes Lord Marshall Gilliford Von Worshestershire of the Order of the Hidden Twilight Lotus...and Dar."
My Character CatherineRose, meanspure and clear and fragrant, was married to Dragomir who died at an early age. Dragomir means great peace. Mori means all will die so make sure you live in peace so you may know peace at death. Therefore our town was named Dragomir Mori after my husband.
I am Bridge Troll because humans cannot easily pronounce my REAL name, Ed.
OH! and Ed means erectile dysfunction!
Candor - definition: the quality of being open and honest in expression; frankness. I chose the name without knowing the meaning of it at the time, which was so long ago! See...I'm honest right?
Atlantica - Signifies the UO Shard (Atlantic) I played on as Candor.
I sold my account somewhere around 2002? So don't blame me if it was used for nefarious reasons since then!
