I go for names that are four characters or less usually, like Bob, Sue, Joe, Fred, Ed, Lily, etc. It's a holdover from my NES RPG days.

I also sometimes use silly names, like Chickie or Miss Sassy.

Hmm. How does it work? I don't understand the motivation behind topic rezzing and perhaps I never will.

Well, seeing as it was a complete newbie which re-started up the topic I can't rant and rave, so I'll have to settle for joining in.

I play human characters only now, as I found a good team I liked in Avernum 1, and I decided to stick with them.

So, my characters are:

Micael
Helena
Arbok
Adriana

And we're nasty!...

Yea, I use Mycroft, Melissa, Philip and Kingy. 3 of those are the ones that are preset on one of the games and the last is me so I feel like I'm sort of in the game.

For humans, I use normal finnish names like Pekka, Kari, Arto, Jouko, Irene, Liisa etc. For nun-humans, I use, well, imaginative names. Like the-One-Who-Ate-the-Furball, Herra Lisko, Mad Scale and so on...

I play solo with the name Atropos.

Atropos is a greek semi-god, he determines when you die possibly for the gods as well.

Fits with my characters abilities :D .

In reply to VCH, I just have to open my first ever E1 save game: John, Ariel, Nathan, Samantha, Allison, Erik.

Brings it all back... the sound effects in that game are, well dodgy.

I usually have my party's names Jerry, Jessica, Nick, and Michelle. But when I played Exile 3, I used these names, can you figure where I got them?
Buffy :eek:
Giles
Willow ;)
Xander

Let's see... I think I had something like this back in A3:

Zev (human mage)
Emerald (human priest)
Beryl (nephil rogue/archer)
Elerion (human fighter)

And then, a party of druids for BoA:
Roughscale (slith fighter-priest)
Longclaw (nephil rogue-archer-priest)
Bronzeleaf (human priest-fighter)
Magnolia (human priest)

Another BoA party:
Karhallarn (human berserking-halberd-wielding-priest)
Oryhara (human rogue-archer-mage)
Pinebranch (human priest)
Zev (human mage-archer)

Main BoA party:
Elerion (human fighter-priest)
Beryl (nephil rogue-archer-mage)
Ephesos (human mage)
Lisscha (slith priest-fighter)

A bit overlap between the parties.

I often make up random names, such as "Ramiya Pyrope" for a woman in the original Avernum. They seem have elements of whatever I'm doing at the time; "Pyrope" may have come "pyrite," and I was volunteering at the mineralogy section of a museum at the time.

Some more names I use are Michael/Michelle for my Priest-spell caster, Peter, and I also like to keep Aldous sometimes. There's Huckle for my Nephil, Leagare or Kass for my Sliths, and Phaedra.

Sometimes it feels like I'm naming children. :)

naming humans is easy, naming sliths is ok (mine is usually Hss-Thss, descendant of the great Sss-Thss), but how the hell do you name a nephil?

Change all the ssss's in any random Slith's name to rrrrrr's, add a few m's and w's, stir well, and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. (Serves four).

My first charac is allways a Nephil named Retrency (and in the first avernum retrency is covered with bandelets, so that noone can know he is a nephil), the second is always named thissa like the normal one and then I usually take celali(a priest) or jade(a nephil thieve priest) and the last one is always Mellia(amage or priest-alchemist-mage (that have all her spells at level 45!!!))
