    Some days I just want to smack people with a rolled up newspaper. Or a phone book.
    A folding chair is looking like an attractive option right now too...

    I know it's just after school but do you have to show how stupid you really are?

    Last night I ran into the "Lich Slap" guild. Fine, no big deal.

    The name was horrendous, though: Apclypse.

    About a half hour later in Borean Tundra... "Apacolypsi" was recruiting more members for Lich Slap.

    I made it a duty to hunt him down and /facepalm

    If I ever get around to having people sign my guild charter for my bank alt, the "guilds" name will be <City Health Inspector>. He'll inspect the space between the bank and auction house in Org.

    I have a bank alt with a guild name of <Epic Weapon Vendor> -- been done plenty of times before but I still get people trying to click on me when I go for a walk in IF sometimes.

    Saw a dk in the strand tonight named DKrush or Dkrawr, something like that. I was to busy smashing my shield into his goku wannabe face but found it amusing.

    I see we have someone here who knows his Lesser Key.

    Or just saw the name somewhere and went "lol cool name olol".

    Either way, I considered another duke of hell, Marchosias, for my DK, but I ended up with my usual method of having a name beginning with a Z.

    Hate: People who have their spec or role as part of their name. Anybody with "tank" or "heals" in your name, this is you. I was ganked repeatedly last night by a BE ret pally named "Retdemon." It was like insult to injury.

    After that, I was repeatedly ganked by a BE hunter named "Imgonnakillu." It was a good night.

    I like to pick Japanese names. Primarily because they are so rarely taken and sound mystical and shit.

    Like Mokushiroku for a warrior class.

    Means armageddon.

    Or Myoujou

    Means the Devil, or Lucifer.

    Otherwise I go with the names from characters in creative stories I've written.

    Sometimes it's amusing when people pick names that you think represent their class/spec, and they don't.

    Like an Ice Tank in CoX called 'Fire Blaster' or an Arms Warrior in WoW named 'Frost Mage'.

    Right there with you. I have a hunter named Candiru (Portuguese), a druid named Tiandihui (Chinese), and my current project being a gnome warrior named Kaeru (Japanese) after Frog from Crono Trigger.

    The downside to foreign names is people will often assume you're a gold farmer of some type.

    There was an Orc Hunter on my server named "Elvenwarrior." That always made me smile a bit.

    I guess the names do coincide with the actual level of skill of people. Far more bad heals than good.

    When Halo 1 was big on my college campus, I ran around for a while with the name "Ikillteammates" or something to that effect. Sure enough, random people on my team made a point of keeping their distance from me.

    i remember raiding with my shaman (then named papercannon) and always signed into vent as "paper" about once a month i'd get told my vent name was lame and needed to be changed so i decided to make the vent handle "Finneas Wank von Hammerstien IV" Now they leave me alone.

    That's kind of racist.

    Buuuut, considering most japanese names out there in WoW are modeled after Anime characters, I can't say I entirely blame you.

    I do go out of my way to kill the goku's/sephiroths/clouds I see, but not anyone with a japanese name.
