Topic: I need names

Exactly like the title says. I'm writing a story and have a lot of characters that are about to join. And I have absolutely no names for them. I cannot work around it, I need a lot of names. So, if you can think of stuff that's sci fi sounding/suitable for a dragon, please post them here. It would be most appreciated.

A quick google search came up with those as the first three results. wink

Re: I need names

No offense, but I don't want to use name generators. To me, the names they put out are just so...artificial (if that makes sense). I wanted to have the creativity of many people come up with many unique names I could use. But a name generator would only be the creativity of a few people, with just a lot of combined results.

Re: I need names

Oh, that's fine. I never use name generators properly anyway, I usually take a first name I like and pair it to a last name I like. Or take half of one name and combine it with another. Or drop a letter or add a letter. etc.

I can't really help you then, I'm terrible at choosing names. Only real advice I can give is that sometimes I take the character and see who they are, like, their personality. And then I choose a name that means something like that. For example, my name fits me fairly well, my name means "stranger", and I've moved here, there, and all over so that usually means I'm a stranger wherever I go.

Re: I need names

I have always just written down the first name that comes to my head and edit it to make it right.

For example: I could start out with a name like Joseph Aaron Brown and it end up being James Crockett Boone (which is a mixture of Jame Bond, Davy Crockett, and Daniel Boone)

Re: I need names

This would be my best suggestion.  You get a generator to throw random, 'artificial' as you put it names at you, and then just take first, last, or altered names that it gives you and combine them to your own personal taste.  If you really do need lots of names I can't think of a better suggestion.  The generators will always throw you something interesting if you cycle through it enough.

What's your story?  Star Wars?  If so maybe some of us here on the boards could contribute our own personalities.  Just a thought

Re: I need names

Yeah it's Star Wars related. I didn't mention it in the first post because I was a little shy/embaressed to. It's the sequel to a completed story that's not well known/doesn't appear to be popular, so I don't feel like explaining all the details if I don't have to. Yeah I'm lazy.

Re: I need names

Your more that welcome to my user name. I think a basic translation would be "Vengeful soul" At least the people who helped me said thats what it means.
You could always try researching different SW languages and make peoples names based on the roots of the words (basicly what I did) If any of your characters are from the outer rim the basic train in sur names seems to be two totally contradictory words while the first names are just simple. For instance "sky-walker", "dark-lighter".
I seem to be making people on here mad so I will try not to push my opinion or input too hard.
I can help you with names but it would be best if I knew a general background of the character.
Let me know if I can help

Re: I need names

For my stories I often look at books and check out authors names or names from myths and legends etc.

I like Gaelic names and you can often use 'baby names' websites if you're not sure but you have an origin in mind: http://www.babyhold.com/list/Gaelic_Baby_Names/

Re: I need names

When I'm feeling REALLY lazy I'll just park it on the couch with a notebook and copy names I like from the end credits of movies that are ending.  If you've got cable/satilite and a few half decent movie channels, you'll have an endless supply of random names every half hour or so    tongue

Re: I need names

Oh, that is a good way to find random names...I never thought of that

It's very generous of you to offer your username to me, but, no offense, it's not very fitting for the story. The dragons (and half dragons. And humans too) aren't skilled warriors or mercs. The setting is/was a peaceful forgotten planet at the edge of the outer rim. They're basically ordinary citizens who suddenly have to fight if they want to live to see another day.

I prolly made it sound more dull then it really is, but thats the very basic plot in a nutshell. If this helps at all.
