With the long xp buff before the next xpac, the number of alts in Azeroth has skyrocketed. For me, naming is one of the funnest parts of playing RPGs. I want to share some of my new favorite alt names and I’d like to hear yours. Please include explanations if necessary for context or whatever.
Alliance DK named Slaimy. I tried “Slamy” first (like Amy), but my mind kept seeing it as “Slammy”. That wouldn’t do.
Zandalari balance druid: Dangerbird. I like the Neil Young song “Dangerbird”.
Highmountain Tauren DK: After hearing “Anshe guide you” a thousand times I realized I was hearing “Anshe Gaiju” and had to make a toon with that name. “Gaiju” is an alternate spelling for “Kaiju” which is the Japanese word for huge monsters like Godzilla, Mothra, Gamera, etc.
I wanted to find a (insert word)song name based on celestial bodies. I thought of Asteroidsong, Cometsong, Nebulasong. None of those blew my skirt up. A couple days later, Fartsong popped into my head. That blew my skirt up.
I quickly grabbed a name out of thin air for my belf DH: Tandoori. I thought it was an okay name until I looked at my character window and saw my default title with my name: Illidari Tandoori. It reminded me of the Indian dish Tandoori Chicken. I thought “Illidari Tandoori. Yum. That sounds tasty.” I disgust myself. But the name has grown on me.
