    Your FFXI name... What? Why? LOL? etc.

    I was wondering what other people named their FFXI characters, and why. I bet there are some interesting stories! I thought it might make for a fun thread.

    So what's your name? Where did you get that name? Is there a special meaning or story behind it? And if you've got a goofy name like my friends, Eiralys and Tlieaxu, how do you pronounce it?! Tell us all about it.

    So, I guess I'll start things off...

    My name is Isobel. It's pronounced "E-so-bell". I really wanted Cammy, but some JP already had it >_< I got Isobel from one of my favorite songs by Bjork. It's a great song, a unique name, and I thought it sounded good for a Mithra. Anyhow, here's a link to the video for Isobel if you're interested... http://www.bjork.com/videogallery/wa...o=7;size=large

    That's it. OK, now it's your turn!

    Kael (Pronounced Kay-El)

    I got it from the movie Willow. Even before the game came out, I knew I wanted to be a Dark Knight. And so I named it after the evil general in the movie.

    I've had the name "Epidemic" since I began playing online games (Socom 1...best game evar!) and well if you don't know what it means you should be shot in the foot.

    Haka means "grave" in japanese. And maru is a meaningless name suffix that can literally be translated to "ball" or "orb". Everyone thinks I named my character for that damned Naruto dog.

    Pronounced like a japanese word: Ha - Ka - Ma - Ru

    Kuponut, originally wanted to be an Elvaan named Kupo, but decided to be a Taru since Elvaan scared me. Kupo was taken, so I decided to be named Kuponut. Great name for a Taru I think.

    Ploid

    Before ffxi or any online game I surfed gaming message boards and needed a name. Tried to get a name no one used and took a while to think something odd up. Don't know if I was eating chips or what but Ploid sounded like something I wanted to use (E-ploids). Used is fore every forum, and sometimes character since (1997).

    Jaffar was a character from Fire Emblem on the GBA, he was an assassin, the upgrade from thief, and just happened to be playing that when I decided to be a THF in XI.

    If only i had 1 gil for every Aladdin joke i've heard...
    Funny how I didn't realize your name was the same as a aladdin character until at the end. How could I have forgotten the good times. And very nice name.

    Intense - The name came from back when I was in high school, I used to hang out with a party crew called "Intense." They threw underground parties/kick backs/etc in my area. Why I chose it? Everything else I liked was taken. My real name is Aaron and I wanted that, but it was used, and I didnt want to misspell my own name just to be able to use it.

    The name I was shooting for was Lanfear, who was a character from the WoT series. Lanfear was taken, so I used the name she used when she was first introduced in the books, Selene.

    Later on when making a mule, I tried Lanfear again out of curiousity and now I have a mule with the name my main character should have had.
