When I start playing BoA (after I've caught on BoE scenarios), I may create a party and name the characters Goatse, Tubgirl, Lemonparty, and Harlequin Fetus.
Or maybe not. But it's an idea.

EDIT: If you don't know what those are, don't go looking for them. Just trust me on this one.

I usually don't rename recruited characters. It's so naive.

You, friend, have allied yourself with the forces of madness and chaos. You name your party members after modern perverse horrors and insane birth defects. Your enemies must literally shudder when they hear the names of your adventurers.

Always the same in all games since Exile 1:

Senlias, Usdar, Yael and Huilia
(Senlias and Yael the warriors)

It's so unoriginal I use the same names for any other CRPG. If it's a solo game, then either Senlias or Yael.

Yup.

I like to name my priests Jesus, so I can say things like "Jesus, heal me!" or "they killed Jesus!" (I'm an atheist, what do you expect?) If I have a slith, I like to name him Godzilla, and I often name other people 'Tom Servo' or 'Crow T. Robot' from MST3K!

*snickers* That reminds me of something my friend told me... he said he was playing Halo2 on multiplayer, I think, and one of the people was named Jesus Christ. He turned on the people on his team and on my friend's screen, it said, "Jesus Christ has betrayed you. Press 'X' to eject him from the game." It might not have been 'X', though... I don't remember.

*on topic* I always name my female mage Rhaevyn. I use the graphic of the voluptuous woman with a green dress. The other people are usually random... Mortimer or Morpheus or something like that for a male mage, and Michael for a priest... the leader guy always changes.

I just let the names Avernum gives them be their names. I usually do give one the charaters the name Filbert, and the Nephil member I also give an other name, but that's just random.

Mine are as follows
Kingy (Leader and fighter[I like to feel like I'm in the game])
Mycroft (Mage)
Melissa (Priest)
Brian (Fighter / lockpicker)
This is the first combo I ever used and I used it in all of the Avernum series.

I usually play solo (always human if solo), and the name of my solo character is my first name....*wink wink*, starts with a J and ends with a S.

If I play a 4 member slith party:

Leonardo (Slith Male Fighter)
Michaelangelo (Slith Male Mage)
Rafael (Slith Male Fighter)
Donatello (Slith Male Mage)

TMNT theme...

On rare occasions, two nephils and two humans: (2 males and 2 females)

Jeros (Human Male Fighter)
Felix (Nephil Male Fighter)
Veronica (Human Female Mage)
Whiskers (Nephil Female Mage)

Sometimes I use two sliths and two humans: (Also 2 males and 2 females)

Zidane (Human Male Fighter)
Elizardbeth (Slith Female Mage)
Rikku (Human Female Mage)
Lizzanardo (Slith Male Fighter)

Just these three party name combinations and my one solo name, using the two fighters and two magic users format (party) or a fighter/magic combination (solo), which is quite common to use in many RPGs.

Edit: Minor typos and added gender/class descriptions for names.

My current A2 party:

Vern: Human swordfighter
River: Human pole-arm fighter
Maren: Human priest
Sterling: Human mage

In all my four-character parties, the layout is the same, unless I choose to replace the pole-arm fighter with another sword-fighter. I often use different names, but I may keep using the names I listed for future parties. I only ever use humans.

Starr, McCartney, Lennon, Harrison. Perhaps, at some point in the future, I will use Moon, Entwistle, Daltrey, and Townshend. Or maybe Watts, Wyman, Richards, and Jagger.

Ah, I've been immortalised in someones Spidweb game party. Probley not intentionally.

I think my new A3 party will be called:

Michael (Human warrior)
Kieran (Nephil archer/thief)
Conrad (Human Jack of all trades/Priest)
Ak'Shel (Slith Mage)

If you can guess where I got those names from than.... good for you.
