What is in a name?
Good men must die, but death cannot kill their names..
Hey everyone, is it friday yet?!
So this week seems to be going by abnormally slow, I have a busy weekend ahead of me, so maybe I should soak in the slow moving week...Who knows..
Yesterday was probably the most fun I've had in a while on WoW. I did 10 man ulduar with my guild. The group of people were comprised of newer members, Alts, and some senior members helping out or getting new gear for their off-specs. Since this content is easier then what they are used to, we just totally had fun with it. It gave the newer members, like me, a chance to learn the content and gear up. I got to know the guild better, it was just an overall great experience. Thanks for having me!
But to get to the point of this post...Today I was at work wondering what to blog about, then a question popped into my head, How do certain people pick their character names? I mean seriously, some of the ones I've seen are pretty creative, funny and cute. Do they base them of TV, Movies, Books? Do they base them off of their real names or their friends? How and why do people name their characters? If you're reading this post below in the comments and tell me and the other readers (even though there aren't very many) why and how you came up with your name.
My favorite movie since I was a kid, and still is....The Little Mermaid. If you are a member of any of the same forums as I am, my avatar is always Ariel. One of Ariel's (The Little Mermaid) sisters is named Alannah. I've always thought this was a gorgeous name, so when I started going online alot, My username was Alannah for the most part, then...I forget what site it was, Alannah was taken! So I thought about it and made just a newer version of it...Alannya. Epic story, i know. You can pronounce it AH-LAWN-YA or AH-LAWN-AH, either was is good for me. I attached a graphic with me holding a sign with my WoW character name on it...I'm a dork what can I say!
So thanks for reading, and I can't wait to find out the story behind peoples names!
