What is your inspiration for your character`s names?

In PSO2, I will probably use at least two names I`ve used before: Googlebonker and Rhonda. Maybe Uvueanthoranmarinia, too, but I`ll want to see how much character space there`ll be.

The word "googlebonker" is a "made-up word" from 1st or 2nd grade. I started using it online. Anywhere you`ve seen a Googlebonker, it was probably me. I think I`ve seen a "GoogleBonker" once.

My main character is me. So... simple enough. Though I want him to look like his PSO self.

A few of my other characters I just pulled names from a book, like Satsuki.

AR-7, being a RAcast, is Animatronic Ranger 7

And Bob... he has a long story behind him. Short story, TimeSplitters Future Perfect. Wanted to name him John Q Public, but didn't have enough digits. So I went short and named him Bob. He was a security then. He was a RAmar in PSO. A stormtrooper in SW Battlefront 2. And a random spartan in Halo series.

HUcast. (You know.)

RAcast ( That ^ )

Diablo ( HUmar i inhered when i started psogc For the first time. He was Lv.17.)

HUbeastarl ( Was my friends idea but... It was my PSU Atoti. Not his. I Came up with the name. He made her.)

FOnewm( Check Above Again! )

Sakura ( A homage to the good ol anime called "Cardcaptors"... Good times. Good times.)

Suzy ( Little bro's PSP2 Char. Honestly i have no idea how.)

LK1721
Dec 15, 2010, 08:31 PM
LK1721, LK or LK17 for short.
LK is taken from the L&K 14 Combat mech guns from PSO, they were among my favorite weapons.
17 and 21 are my lucky numbers.

Black Knight
Named my first HUcast that in around 3rd grade on the GC. Shortly after watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Aria
Always liked the name and it is also a homage to my favorite manga series, ARIA.

Abelard
When my brother played Diablo 2 with me he suggested that as a name for my Paladin.

Don't know, and I probably won't know until I'm at the character creation screen. A lot will depend on the customization options and what flows from it... then let the character speak to me. Though I have been kicking around a few possibilities for a female wartecher/HUnewearl type Numan female.

If she has a softer look; Nicaea or Nicene.
The name comes from a unification council in early Christian history under Emperor Constantine.

If she has a harder look; Perestroika (Maybe corrupted, like Perez Troika, or Paristroika, or some-such. Could also be a good RAcaseal name to carry the torch of my PSO caseal) Perestroika means "Reconstruction" in Russian, and it was a political movement during Gorbachev's rule.

For a male character... maybe Alyosha for a human male, or Orestes for a Cast male.
Alyosha is the name of a character from The Bros. Karamazov, and Orestes is the name of the 5th century prefect of Alexandria who clashed with the Bishop (St.) Cyril over whether the city should be Christian or remain secular - ending in the burning of the library of Alexandria by hordes of angry Christians and the brutal murder of the philosopher Hypatia.

Depending on how classes work in PSO2, my gun using robot will be named Lachesis and my human melee guy will be Foln. Both of these are the names of PSO characters and they've stuck around for the other PS games.

Uvueanthoranmarinia was a name I came up with when trying to fill or nearly fill the space for a character name in PSU. Her name was partially based off "Uvueanna," a name I once used for Yuffie in Final Fantasy 7.

Noelem Ahc came from the word "chameleon" (look at it backwards). He was a PSU character, so I could change his skin color.

Ah, some time to type some more. n_n

While I was making my first Rhonda, I wanted to make a female CAST as large or about as large as I possibly could. I gave her the robotic head that looked like it had a giant hat, Batrelle Arms (that one with a floating shoulder plate), and Elaciel Torso and Legs. Light skin, main color red, sub color white. After I saw her, she looked like a pirate captain or something. I thought the name "Rhonda" suited her. Maybe because of her size along with the fact she looked tough and/or hearty or something.

I didn`t like the fact that her face wouldn`t articulate to show emotions on the Cut-in Chat windows. Back then, you couldn`t change a CAST`s head from those types of heads to a head where you can change certain facial features, so I remade her.

Hm, what are some other names... I had a role play character on PSOEps1&2GC called "RAmarlBarbie." lol She was fun.

Let me list some:
Jiba (PSU, small-Beast male)
Jewelie (PSU, Jiba`s small-Beast female wife, and mother of their decaplets {like twins, but 10})
Rhoss (PSU, Rhonda`s tall, thin CAST male brother)
Grandma (PSO, FOmarl; PSU, Human Female)
Grandpa (Final Fantasy XI, Galka)
Mime (PSO FOnewearl; I used her on PSO for some lobby fun)
Uxtifia (PSO, RAmarl)
Imdespoq (PSO, FOmar)
Z`zanid (PSO, FOnewearl)
Verica (PSO, RAcaseal)
Syzdoranlo (PSO, RAcast)
Rezenio (PSO, FOnewm)
Blithest (PSO, FOmarl)
Kimiko (PSO, HUcaseal; named after tennis player Kimiko Date-Krumm)
Hezner (PSO, HUcast)
Ashketchum (FFXI, Elvaan Male)
Googlemoogle (FFXI, Tarutaru Male)

I`ve made more. Hm, do I like making characters too much? lol Making characters is part of the fun of these games, though, right?

Names often come from something in the character that inspired the name. Or some string of tangents.

Tynselle Nbareh actually came from the backstory that popped in my head during character creation. Once I actually had the *look* that shouted that this was my character, a backstory fit to it. The name Tynselle came from the time of the year of the US release and oddly enough, PSO's start. Oddly enough, I was thinking of the birthdate of the character to be something close to when I created her. It would be in December, but I wanted a palindrome date. 1221. Or December 21st. Coincidentally, this was also the release date (JPN) of the original PSO.

Being that the date was right in align with Christmas. Tis the season. I gave her a girlish twist on a decoration used during the holidays. Tinsel. So Tynselle was born. The last name was because I wanted her to be a late decendant of some African lineage so I used Nbareh as a name styled like a naming convention used by some dialects. Her father, Katlego, suggests a Bantu dialect origin.

Mufonna was easy. Female Beast with feline features. I basically went Lion King with this one. A play on the name between Mufasa and her outfit choices. Mufasa and Prima Donna became Mufonna. Tigre, as the last name, was an obvious followup to the theme.

Stints was basically because I wanted to create a cool-sounding single name for an old gunslinger guy who yearns for simpler times, way out west, with cowboy hats, cattle, and ranches.

In PSO. Fioshani was actually a RaMarl. Her name was a twisted homage to Fio Germi from Metal Slug. And yes, like Fio, she's a glasses girl. The hairstyle was different because the glasses had 1 single fixed single-ponytail hairstyle in the game. The only choice.

Wicksomnae was my main in PSO for quite some time. A male Newman which was selected to look as close to myself as possible, at the time. The name was completely original. It was to be a character name in my Inarmado Story book series, but that name never got attached to a character until I used it in PSO.

I also had Furrivaser in Final Fantasy 11. A mithra, but he was a guy. I wanted the thief-supporting race, but there was no way he would be a girl. So basically, I wore the most butch armor choices throughout the game. Stuff that covered the most because to a degree, I played off the male mithra disguised in plain sight. An escapee from Windhurst. Though the name suggests different, the name was originally going to go to a male human Wizard in True Fantasy Live Online, which never made it to a final release. Furrivaser was a play on the name Harry Potter. Harry from Hairy, Furri from Furry. Pot to Vase.

Names come from things that relate to me.

I'm making my character Serizawa again. If they have a first/last name thing, the first name will be Miya. Reasoning is below:

Serizawa = friend's last name
Miya = first name, also sounds similar to favorite character, Mia of FE

My character names for PSO2 all depend on which races will be included and/or excluded. Once Sega tells us that information, I can have a better idea.

As for where exactly my character names come from, I make them all up on my own. I've got a good imagination for such things, so I put it to use.

PSU:
Nassandra
Andromeda
DarkDrive
Chrissie

(note: There's also a plethora of deleted characters that I could put in the PSU section here, but I don't feel the need)

PSP1 & 2:
Eklypse(PSP1)
Lilandra(PSP2)
Genevieve(PSP2)

Misc:
BloodDrive(PSOBB)
Rob Otiks(PSOBB)
X-Drive(PSZ)
Misty(PSZ)

Dec 23, 2010, 12:30 PM
I always liked how we were seperated by player ID, and could all share the same name if we really wanted to. Hopefully they continue down that path.

As for my names, Jinketsu for a boy character, Retsujo for a girl. I also want to make a cute-ish short male and female characters and name them Peanut (M) and Peneaut (F).

I also like Vaughn, Jester, Pompom, and Basket. They're all six-letter names and I've used them on several name-your-nameless-guys RPGs throughout the years.

Dec 23, 2010, 01:36 PM
When I think Jester, I think Gauntlet Legends and Gauntlet Legends Dark Legacy. (My favorite Gauntlet games of all time) Ahh, the memories. Why doesn't PSN and/or XBLA get these?

Seth Astra
Dec 23, 2010, 02:15 PM
I will probably make my main character a newman (or POSSIBLY a human) named Seth. Then my second char will most likely be a female newman named Cecina. I am horridly uncreative with names. If I make a cast, I will probably name him Omega-22.

Kevin PSO
Dec 27, 2010, 09:13 PM
I'll stick with Kevin, and hopefully get a decent section ID. I was fine with being a Whitill RAmar in the original PSO. Of course this is all hypothetical, and assuming they keep the current section ID system.

RenzokukenZ
Dec 27, 2010, 10:01 PM
I actually don't tend to 'reuse' names for any character of any game. That way, each character that I have ever created remains unique. And I try to make the name match the character in some way, whether their personality or appearance.

PSO:
-Guardian: My main RAcast, named for being a big android who looked like he was guarding somehing.

-Evanescense: HUnewmeral with a ghostly appearance, hence the name since it means 'vanish away'

-Elyan: Recently made him a couple of days ago on PSOGC. Not the same Elyan from PSP2. HUcast with all-white armor, and interesting enough his section ID is WHITILL :D

PSP2:
-Elyan L'Cross: Male Cast with a knightly appearance and white parts. Name refering to Elyan the White from Arthurian Legend, and by his in-game nickname of the 'White Knight' Last name is somewhat connected to the LCROSS NASA program, as one of Elyan's favorite hobbies is space observations.

-Leronz Nox: Male Beast with a darkened and delusional view of the world. Last name is latin for 'Night', since Leronz specializes in dark photon weaponry. First name is an incomplete anagram of my first name, Lorenzo, and is mostly used on generic Dark Knight characters, which I see him as one.

This is just the few that I have made. I would list more, but then there would be a wall of text ^^

And of course, like someone else stated, I too make the name before or during the character creation process.

Chaobo99
Dec 27, 2010, 10:42 PM
My character has been named "War" since the original Dreamcast Ver.1 PSO. It actually originated from "Wargreymon" because I liked digimon... and was then shortened to "War" XD
Thus all my characters are named War.. even alts and different races.. kinda bland but everyone I know calls me War.... even in RL sometimes lol ^^;

Reksanden
Dec 28, 2010, 12:15 AM
People in real life sometimes refer to me as Rauga, because they don't know what my real name is. Which is fine by me, because I like Rauga more than my real name.

Syrus08
Jan 11, 2011, 05:32 PM
I have used Syrus for my male characters for a while now (at least since Xbox). I don't remember my Dreamcast names outside of Venger (which I think was from the old D & D cartoon).

For females I use Jessica my wife's name.

Crystal_Shard
Jan 12, 2011, 01:23 AM
For PSPo1 and 2 at least, my main characters are the newman female Force called Crystal and the male human hunter called Shard. I'm simply billing them as a famous mercenary pair (or couple if you will - haven't decided yet) called Crystal Shard. ^_^'

There's also Deis Mk 3, version three of a cast ranger Guardian who worked with them in the past, and Celise, created in PSPo1 but never used, who's a member of the Knights of the Steel Rose who joined up with the above three during the crisis in PSPo2.

Finally in Infinity, I'll be adding Shard's sister Nacalia (probably younger sister) who was infected by the SEED during PSU (which I skipped, so I don't know much about the events that happened) and the male cast ranger guard who's assigned to escort her, called Varren, a homage to the old bulky androids from the old PS games (Shirren, Forren, both also known as Wren).

In PSO, I started using the names Natasha and Raywin, who were characters in a little pet project of mine, but after a while I decided to shift to names that were more in tune with my own online ID. Episode 1 and 2 also saw me creating 12 characters, both to cover all the section IDs and unique weapons, and also as 3 teams of competing hunters, but it took too long to get most of them past level 20, let alone level 1. Two of my current PSPo2 characters, Celise and the original Deis Mk 1 also first appeared in PSO Ep 1 and 2, a Fomarl and Racaseal respectively.

Kirukia
Jan 12, 2011, 08:06 AM
Kirukia: I originally made this name up for maplestory because so many names were taken. I ended up using it for other games and it became fairly unique to me. If you typed it into google most of the stuff that came up was related to me :D
Now apparently other people use it >__> It's apparently a swahilian plant or something too.

Luna: Moon Goddess in Mythology

Mistral: .hack Original Series

Megaera: Erinyes in Mythology, although I originally found out about the name when she was used as a Golden Sun: Lost Age summon.

Geric: A variation of Gerik from Fire Emblem

Freya/Freyalise: Mythology. Sometimes I use the full name because Freya is so common. First became known to the name because of the planeswalker Freyalise in Magic the Gathering Invasion Series.

Those are some names I generally use.

Wayu
Jan 12, 2011, 08:20 AM
Well, I guess I'll keep my alts names into PSO2 as well.

Teana - a friend's name, also from Teanna Langer from Nanoha.

Asuka - couldn't think up of a name for her, and then saw a link to Evangelion.

-Wayu

RenzokukenZ
Jan 12, 2011, 08:54 AM
There is another character name that I use in almost any game that I can. It's from a fanfic character a friend of mine made, and I've always liked that character and try to recreate her in games.

The character's name is Lilah Phoenix, and is almost always a dual-wielding human woman. One exception was in PSO, since there were no human females for hunters, she was a HUnewarl packing a pair of Asukas. I always try to keep her with twin swords as her main weapon and associated with the element of fire, and so far there have been little problems.

Hopefully in PSO2, I'll be able to recreate her perfectly.

Corey Blue
Jan 13, 2011, 03:14 AM
Corey Blue or Blue it depends on how they do the section ID thing.Oh and Corey Blue is my real name.^^

Tetsaru
Jan 13, 2011, 02:20 PM
Here's some character names I've used:


Tetsaru - Obviously my ID. I use this most of the time when playing something online. A friend of mine came up with the name.


Geezer T. Dudeface - A rather nonsensical name I came up with for a "grumpy old man" character for PSU.


Doomkaiser - The name of my Galka character on FFXI, inspired by the Doomkaiser Dragon Yugioh card (http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20081106234508/yugioh/images/d/d9/DoomkaiserDragonCSOC-EN-UR-1E.jpg) and Mordekaiser (http://img1.mmo.mmo4arab.com/news/2010/02/22/lol/mordekaiser1.jpg) from League of Legends.

Jan 15, 2011, 08:48 AM
As with every other Phantasy Star game, I'll be bringing over my usual array of character names. I may make new ones, but there's a couple I always use.

Teika - It's a mashup of 'Terra' and 'Rika', but she kinda made the name her own now after being Lv200 on Blue Burst. Pronounced 'tay-ka'.

Neith - From the Egyptian goddess of war who welcomed the dead to the underworld. Not taken directly from Zone of the Enders, but it influenced my choice.

Any others are less likely to feature, though I may bring the oldies back and make an 'Uriko' :wacko: (PSO GC first ever character comeback?)

Jan 25, 2011, 08:33 PM
Hewitt, I just really liked the name at first, but now I can't think of 'Hewitt' without picturing my short newman from PC/PS2 PSU and all the memories from that. It's a really happy name for me now, so that'll definitely make a comeback as long as I have a newman.

Bleep Bloop might come back, got her because me and my friend always said it, then when I went to make a CAST I couldn't think of a name and then I was like 'oh my gosh! Bleep Bloop!'. very fun to say :D

Those two will probably be the only names that stay, with the exception of Hewitt, I like to keep things fresh with names.

JesMaz

It is tempting to reuse the same names I used in Psu, or even to make a similar character as a tribute, but for PSO2 I plan on making up something new or using my real name.

Aerilas

VOLTRON and Kitty were my 2 main PSU characters.

VOLTRON was me trying to think of a robot name at 2 AM and picking the first name that came to mind. Never even seen the show.

Kitty was not meant as a real character so I used the generic beast name.

With PSO2 I think I'll put more thoughts into my characters like my later PSU Characters like Minerva and Valcona (Volcano with the vowels switched) ... kinda sad about the idea of killing off Kitty and VOLTRON tho... lol oh well it'll take place is a different place/time anyways :)

Suzy ( Little bro's PSP2 Char. Honestly i have no idea how.)

LOL I must be getting old if that anime is considered a "good ol anime" might have to dig out some old project A-Ko or my Bubblegum Crash VHS tapes. Nah seriously though my name (Mantis, Mantiskilla, Blackmantis) pretty much just came about long before PSO was around. Dunno just sounded cool one day when I made a thief character "Blackmantis" on AD&D back in the day when I used to play with my older cousins. Has stuck ever since with some variants

Arkios
Feb 17, 2011, 04:39 PM
Busta or Arkios for Male.
Aeshah or Arkias for Female.


Depends on whether they restrict players to unique names or not. (The latter being the least likely to be used by someone else)

Mar 4, 2011, 11:59 PM

If I'm going to play PSO2, I'm going to call my Char Cyruz, like always. Probably his Fullname maybe. And he'll be a Cast... but only if Casts can have human faces in PSO2. Else he'll be a Human. ;A;

Fire-Fox Kyuubi.

I think it would speak for itself, a Fire Fox with nine fluffy tails. and No I'm not a Fan of Naruto.

Or

May use a Character from Random Games/Animes like (Guess the references): Allenbee, Shina/Marvel, Ivy, Shiva, Blair, Millenia, Fang, Lady, Fran, Yoruchi, and my personal favorite Masane Amaha.

Of course. I've been interested in the whole Spirit Fox stories and the Kyuubi stuff long before Naruto was even a flash of an idea to be made a manga. You can't really know Japanese folklore without knowing about them.

Apr 25, 2011, 08:57 AM
@Firefox: I see Naruto, Soul Calibur, Final Fantasy (several of them), Bleach, maaaaaaaaybe Gundam if you're talking about Allenby, Soul Eater, and Witchblade. Not sure where Shina/Marvel and Millenia are from.

This all depends on customization levels but I'm also considering these for alt names (once again, someone guess the references):
Kyuubei, Tsukuyo, Eclair, Nephenee, Ferris, Kagura, Shinonono, Alchott, Shana, Suzumiya, Sephira, Lucia, Senjougahara...will edit in more later. There's a lot of names

Anduril
Apr 25, 2011, 01:12 PM
I'm probably going to mix up my names for PSO2.
For my main male character, instead of Anduril or Noland I think I'll go with Lasair Thiar, mixing the two since Anduril (The Flame of the West) is, in the LotR universe, technically the descendant of the famous Narsil and Noland is a name of Irish origin meaning "descendent of the famous one" with Lasair Thiar being "Western Flame" is gaelic (well more like "west-bound flame," but I like it).
And for my main femlae charcter instead of Kayla, I'm probably going to go with some modified form of Caoilinn.

I have decided that all of my characters from here on out in any game must be named after mediocre NBA players.

Example: Luke Walton, Ronny Turiaf, Roger Mason Jr, Carlos Arroyo, Chris Duhon, JJ Redick, Samuel Dalembert, etc....

These would all be acceptable. Anyone else out there have any suggestions? The one I find most enjoyable I will use as my first character in PSO2.

I knew a guy in college who named all of his characters (in games where you can name your characters, in general) after over-the-counter and perscription drugs. Things like Benadryl, Claritin and Ibuprofen.

It was certainly... Different.

Assuming names will not be exclusive to one person, I would probably make one of my characters names Bamboozle or Bamboozled; I love that word so much. If I can't get that, or even before attempting that, I might make a more serious name for a character based on names I usually pick for my RPG characters.

derived from Fei Long (Street Fighter series) and Bruce Lee.

If I make a hunter I plan on using the name Proxy.

This is all assuming that if section ID's are back that they don't mess with player names.

ARASHIKAGE

Wut up Googlebonker!

Made-up names or portmanteau's are great and I salute you all for taking the time to develop a character!

I for one get annoyed at the many names that are simply symbols smiley faces, question marks or a lone period.

But there is a different class of us out there that draws our names from; a childhood memory, be that a video game, favorite cartoon, toy, or favorite pet. And in turn we get a deeper personal conection to our role play experience.

I know all the Sephiroths, Clouds and Captain Falcons get annoying at times but remember, they are just people paying respect to their past love.

And if you're completely neutral on this topic you're character name is probably "Zero".

MadDogg
May 11, 2011, 02:31 PM
My very first character's name on pso on the dreamcast was Mad Dogg....a greenhill humar. My friends always asked me how the hell I came up with that name, and to this day I have no answer whatsoever lol. My family didn't get a PC until late 2000, so I didn't even have a e-mail address or anything like that until a day before PSO came out. I just came up with something on the spot for my e-mail, and the weird thing is that I wasn't even crazy about western movies and such.....so I just randomly thought of the name mad dogg, and stuck with it all these years.

ARASHIKAGE
May 11, 2011, 02:59 PM
My character is Storm Shadow, (obviously stolen from G.I. Joe) SS was my favorite G.I. Joe in my collection. The HUmar was my first choice to create him in PSO but, I wasn't fond of the play style or the look of the HUmar. I saw the RAmar as a futuristic space version of SS and once I realized how fun it was to solo with RAmars it became a natural fit.

I haven't looked back 10 years later I'm still carrying that name and I went so far as to create the Arashikage Ninja Clan for PSU (PC/PS2 R.I.P.) and I will carrying that Clan into the new PSO2. And my friends deserve a lot of credit for keeping that going as well. :yes:

[spoiler-box] The Arashikage are an ancient, respected clan of ninjas made up of enigmatic PSO & PSU's veterans.
"Train hard, fight easy!" -Storm Shadow

Centuries ago on Ragol, the Arashikage clan was a renowned family of ninjas. The clan was famous for their techniques, including the "Arashikage Mind-Set," the "Sleeping Phoenix," the "Ear That Sees," and the "Cloak of the Chameleon."
By the time of the Great Blank, the size of the clan had dwindled, but still remained powerful on Neudaiz in system know as Gurhal. Some time after the Great Blank the head of the clan at that time was known as the Hard Master. He and his brother, the Soft Master, gave their nephew, Thomas Arashikage, an important role in the clan, calling him the Young Master. Near the completion of his training, Tommy was sent to assist in the Red Ring Rico crusade. For him, it was a rite of passage; only in war could he become a true warrior. Out of honor he gave himself the code name Storm Shadow which is a distant star language transation of his family name. While on Pioneer 2, Tommy served in Covert Operative Based Recon Agency (COBRA). There he met Justyn Darkcrest. The two soldiers became close friends.
Tommy was so impressed by Justyn's techer skills, he offered him a place in his "family business" when the war was over. For Justyn, it was not long before he returned home. Their COBRA unit was attacked by the organic computer Olga Flow, and a patrol of six became a patrol of three. Tommy, Justyn and Necroticus were the only members of the team to escape. As a exit telepipe was set up the pursuing Olga Flow unleashed a massive attack wounding Justyn. Concerned for his friend, Storm Shadow went back for Justyn. Running through Olga Flow's attacks, Storm Shadow was able to get Justyn safely inside the telepipe. Upon returning home from the war, Justyn met with The Principle, who informed him that his parents and twin brother had been killed in a star cruiser accident. After wandering for a time, Justyn decided to travel to Gurhal and join the clan as Tommy had asked him to. He was welcomed into the Arashikage household and became as skilled as any other ninja.
A few years passed and many ninjas came to train at the Arashikage Dojo on Neudaiz. Along with assisting to eradicate the SEED (which was an organism of pure evil quickly taking over the entire Gurhal system). Expelling the SEED took more effort than originally thought by the AMF and Gurhal Military and the radical group calling themselves the IIluminus seemed to hinder our progress even further. We later learned that the Social Technical system simply known has "ST" was responsible for withholding valuable information and weapons from their own Guardians in an attempt to profit off the war's already bloated budget. At some point we all knew that our time on Gurhal wasn't going to last forever, It was during this time that we kept a sharp focus on our skills and training. Justyn's ability to quickly learn techs especially impressed Storm Shadow’s uncle, the Hard Master. Over time, Justyn and Storm Shadow became sword brothers, and unintentional rivals for the attention and favor of the Hard Master, who liked pitting them against one another to test their considerable skills. Though Justyn often attempted to throw matches in order that his friend should save face in front of his family, the Hard Master was aware of Justyn's ruse, and knew him to be the true victor. During one of Justyn training sessions the Hard Master expressed his desire for Justyn to take over leadership of the Arashikage ninja clan instead of his nephew, Storm Shadow. Justyn refused, and the Hard Master continued with the lesson. It was at this point that Hazard Zypher (exiled member of the COBRA unit) mistakenly killed the Hard Master instead of Justyn. Zypher used an arrow he stole from Storm Shadow, implicating him in the murder of his uncle. Storm Shadow chased Zypher, who was able to escape in a star pod piloted by Zeta. With Storm Shadow believed responsible for the death of the Hard Master, the Arashikage ninja clan dissolved and Justyn returned to Ragol, where he took up residence on the Pioneer 2.

Some of the Arashikage clan still survives today. From the Neudaiz Arashikage Clan; Justyn Darkcrest "Shadow Strike", Artemisa "Jinx", "Black Dragon" Nadra, R.S.-IJX "T'Gin-Zu", Astro "Banazi", Sturm "Dojo", Brind' "Firefly" Amour, "Bushido" Alpal, Ahno "Tiger Claw", "Night Creeper" Marron, Cedicus "Razor Claw", "Kamkura", and other students of the Hard Master, Soft Master and Blind Master. Some former members of the Arashikage Clan have recently opened a martial arts school on Ragol. Undoubtedly, some of their students will choose to follow the path of the ninjas, and the Arashikage clan may one day rise again. [/spoiler-box]

May 11, 2011, 03:40 PM
I, sadly, have already thought up original names for my new characters in PSO 2. I have four so far that loosely correspond to the four classical elements, but I'm not gonna tell you which is which.;-)

- Brandon "Brand" Collins, the successor to my HUmar, Colin Greye.
- "Razor," the new version of my FOmar, "Gregg."
- Chalis Randall, comparable to my RAmarl, Chime Ashland.
- For my cast, either Spade or Heart. Depending on gender. Will probably be similar to my HUcast Titan, or "Ty."

Sord
May 11, 2011, 11:52 PM
I really only have two names I use frequently.

Siyamak (a Persian name from a baby book)
Rickilee (just the French female version of Rick)

There really isn't much at all behind the name Siyamak beyond what I just said. I was looking through a baby book for names and just liked that one. Outside of pso-w most people know me mainly by that handle. The book claimed it just meant "dark eyes."

Rickilee actually has a personal thing behind it. I like tomboys, plain and simple. I'm not one for shy, bashful, girly girl, type gals. I prefer any and all people just be straight forward and spit out whatever they're trying to say. I also don't like meekness. So as such I like tomboys, so naturally I'd choose a more masculine female name.

Caeruleus
May 12, 2011, 12:42 PM
In my PSU playing I've always chosen a Latin based name.

My favorite character was Caeruleus, who was a male beast that had the blue photon blast. Which was perfect because in Latin Caeruleum is the word for "Light Blue" or just "Blue"

My other characters were Dr. Device who was a RAcast. This is barrowed from a book I read by Orson Scott Card. And another was my Force Newman in PSP2 named Landon. I just like the name.

PepperCat
May 14, 2011, 05:54 PM
Likely use PepperCat for my HuCaseal main, although I might change it to PepperCast depending on how the new section id's work. (PepperCat was purplenum if I recall.)

For my RaCaseal, I'd use my old Metabee all the way back from PSO: DC, or I might change it to Metal-Bee or something similar (Metabee was greenill, good for rifles.)

If I decide to make another hunter but male this time around, I'll name him Vellos.

When I make a force, I'll think of a name then.

Keilyn
May 14, 2011, 06:11 PM
When PSO-2 is released, I will attempt to recreate my characters.

I did come to know many people in PSU and PSO and regardless their opinion of me and my own attitudes and trials, I did come to like my characters a lot. Developing them was fun even though it was heavily repetitive.


I am planning on roleplaying the personalities as their fourth stages in experiments and going with the character names I used between PSU and PSO...Once again with Keilyn as my main character. ^_^

Palle
May 14, 2011, 07:53 PM
I'll do what I've done since RF Online: take the name of a bird, swap one consonant for any another [usually random], then rearrange the letters. Finally, Google it to make sure it doesn't mean anything stupid or nasty in another language.

Azure Knight
May 15, 2011, 01:26 AM
Hmmm, when I first played PSO many years ago on the Dreamcast I had a Ramar called AzureK Nute (I was into Soul Calibur "Azure Knight" and Appleseed "Deunan Nute" at the time).

I went with "Azure Knight" for the xbox version of PSO though.

For PSU I had two characters "Azure Knight" (Cast) and "Fathom" (Human Female). Figure I'll probably go with those names, but maybe give both characters a remixed look.

Justyn_Darkcrest
May 15, 2011, 02:18 AM
My primary characters that I've used for years now: Justyn Darkcrest, Aftermath, Mieu, Rysel, Alair Darkcrest.

The inspiration behind them:
Justyn Darkcrest, the first char I ever created, I've used this name for pretty much all my gaming since I was 8. I've always liked the name Justin but wanted a little twist to it and came up with a last name I thought sounded cool at the time. He's appeared in many different forms including multiple heroes of RPG's, to wrestling legends. I'm currently working on a fic for him explaining his origins and affiliations over the years, including his time as a member of Cobra in PSO and the Arashikage in PSU.

Afermath: Created him in a tie in storyline to Justyn, little is known about him to this day.

Mieu: Based on the Female Android from Phantasy Star 3 (always liked her more than Wren)

Rysel: An andriod char I made up a couple decades ago, name taken from Phantasy Star 3.

Alair Darkcrest, Justyn's little sister. First name taken yet again from Phantasy Star 3 (see a pattern?:p)

I don't know how many of these I will recycle for PSO2, or if I'll just make up some new ones, time will tell ^.-

Siverin
May 15, 2011, 02:28 AM
The name "Siverin" origionated when I was a 5 year old as "Sevarius". I was interested in characters of all sorts, and wanted to create my own. Well, I wound up with a space traveler fellow who fought aliens all day. Since then, it's been simply reworked into an elven bounty hunter and ex guard. As for PSO, I've used the name previously when going through my phases, so simply for identification, I'll use it again, as well as "Bea" (A nickname for my own name)

r00tabaga
May 15, 2011, 09:25 AM
Loth' & Nobal were my 1st two PSO hunters and have been in every game since. I have always wanted to have a "profile page" for all to see. Mortal Kombat did this in Armageddon and I hope PSO2 does too. I would be curious to see other players backstory as well.. It could be attached to your Guild Card.

CelestialBlade

ARASHIKAGE
May 20, 2011, 06:15 PM
I wanted to come up with a cool Cast name but I'm having issues being original. Can anyone provide some input?

Here's what I'm going for, off the top of my head:
Male Cast:
Trex CON
DEF Red
Overkill
Teslatron
Omega Silver
Neo Purple
Equalizer
Super Robo Pinocchio 3000 (joking, maybe..)


Female:
Snow Raven
Justice
Smoke Jaguar
Jade Crow
Milky Way R-75
Pink Misty
iAngeltron


As you can see anything with; "tron", "cyber", "i", "proto", "robo", "mecha" can work. I'd like to give the character a name that fits with the surroundings of the PSO2 world, so it feels like it was created for that world. It might feel out of place playing with a Robocop or Johnny 5.

All depends on what classes I'd be playing.. It'd be pretty silly to have a male character named Kyasarin, afterall.

If there is a happy little class that's similar or identical to what I'm used to playing, of course it'll be Kyasarin. It's the same name I've used the whole way through, and I want people to be able to recognize me. It was a name given to me by a dear friend. In loving memory, I carry that name with me just as much as my real name.

Depending on how many characters we're allowed to have, what classes there'll be and what everything looks like, I could end up with any of the following names... (Names in parenthesis are shortened just in case the limit is too tight)

Kyasarin Firauria (Kyasarin)
HUnewearl, Wartecher or Acrotecher type

Ende Vorbei Letztair (Vorbei)
FOnewearl or Guntecher type

Colette Brunel (Colette)
HUmarl or Wartecher type

Natsuhiko Minami (Natsuhiko)
HUcaseal, RAmarl or Fighgunner type

03C:YCERP:Manaxiya (03C-YCERP)
RAcaseal or Acrofighter type

Wapiti
FOmar, FOnewm or Fortetecher type

I could change my mind and add more males if it matters, or if they stop being bad at making not-ugly guys. I just can't bother to think of more guys until stuff gets finalized. Everything is subject to change :D Not that it really matters. lol

UnsentMadman
Jun 5, 2011, 01:26 AM
If I end up getting this game, my first male character will probably be "The Unsent Madman".

The inspiration for the nick comes from my personal impression of how similar Auron of FFX looked to the Mad Max character from The Road Warrior, and how Mad Max faded off into the distance, never to be heard from again (according to the narration at the end of the film) much like Auron faded away at the end of FFX once his task was completed.


Aside from that, I'll likely cannibalise a name or two from one of the earlier PS games. Probably from PS3, since few seem to like that game :p

Alnet
Jun 5, 2011, 08:10 AM
In nearly every game I've played that allows custom character builds, I end up making some version of my original character Alnet, trying to make him as close as possible with that game's setup (sort of like "what if Alnet had existed in this world all along").

Since PSU, I've been including custom characters of my two favorite anime characters: Komugi Nakahara (the girl in my signature), and Koyori Kokubunji. It doesn't bother me that practically nobody recognizes the reference, though. It makes me actually feel pretty good to make custom characters based on anime characters nobody recognizes. Or horrible. Depends on the day, I guess.

Now I just need to finish my horribly written fanstory with Alnet in Komugi's universe (sort of like "what if Alnet had existed in this world all along")...

i'm going to use the same name on all characters. including ALT Characters just like last time in PSU and PSO. so everyone wont get confused. because when i am playing PSU i get confused with who i am playing with sometimes. for example one time on a day playing JP PSU i thought that i was playing with two different people, but the person i was playing with was all in one from E2 and E1. as you can see in my Signature. all have been Character with the name "Ryno" except one"

The names I've used for everything in the last few years:

Chiyoko Female Beast (if allowable), melee with twin weapons and healing magic in mind. Maybe some fire attack magic too. I'll make her short with big-ish breasts, Black hair, pale skin and light blue eyes.

Kimil Male Newman or Human, ranger most likely. Tall, brown skin, red eyes, white hair.

Adrayne Male Human of Duman, techer.

Endrea Female Cast, heavy melee.

Asher Female Newman techer

Simion Male Cast Ranger

Still haven't finalized.
Possible contenders:
Alexander
Lincei (Latin/Italian for "Lynx")
Kiita (A reading of the Kanji for "Tapetum Lucidum", "Bright tapestry"; the reflective tissue that enhances night vision in many carnivores)
Lichtstrahl (German, meaning "Ray of light")
Molniya (Russian, meaning "Lightning"; from which the name of Thor's hammer Mjolnir is derived)

For Me its always been Tsukasa the Force or newman. But, since the odds of another having the same common type name are out there, I might do (N)Tsukasa for obvious distinction purposes.

My character names are Sun-based. Sun the HUcast/HUbeast, Solar the RAcast, and Sol the FOnewm. Had I gotten into PSP2(which I didn't, thanks to lack of English translation + PSO2), the Dewman would have been named Orga Sun.

Any PS styled game, the name of my primary character is Simika.

I don't know how I came up with the name, but it was a named I made up when I didn't want to copy any names from various animes, but wanted the name to look anime-ish.

Valkyrie Lovrina
Jul 16, 2011, 12:22 PM
Most likely I'll have a character named Lovrina. I might also have characters named Saki, Diogo, Rikku in PSO2.

I cosplay in these games a lot. though with notable differences.

Yeah, those are pretty cool names. Another reason why I always use my own name is because I could never come up with those cool names, like yours. Tryce? Never would've crossed my mind lol.

Someone had named their Beast; Teddy Ruxpin in PSU, I remember thinking that was pretty clever. If Beasts make a return in PSO2 I might go so far as to name my Beast; Paddington.

What ever happened to the Star Wars groups out there? When I first started PSU there was a Luke, Leia, Chewie, Han, and C3PO walking around. lol

I have no set pattern for naming my characters. However, their names generally sound at least somewhat like actual names because I tend to see my PSO/PSU characters as (for lack of a better word) characters in the world of Phantasy Star. But first, a history of names:

PSO server:

-Isa, a RaMarl
-Kulan, a HuNey
-Jinx/Jayna/Kalypso, a FoNey
-Kairin, a RaFembot

PSU server:

-Mazarin, a male human legal midget-I mean, Acrofighter
-Berlitz, a female CAST Fortefighter built like an amazon and dressed in the armor of an evil overlord
-Richelieu, a male Newman... Techersomething with a nice beard
-The fourth slot was never constant.

Basically, the previous mains would be revived for PSO2.

Slot 1: A RaMarl named Isa, named and designed based on my (former?) PSO server main. Since her PSO clothes were hardly revealing and looked like military-style clothing, she would be a woman that dresses in a formal, conservative manner.

Slot 2: A HuMar named Mazarin, named and designed with my former PSU main in mind. Although scrawny and kinda eccentric, he is a crafty fellow that tends to use one-handed weapons such as Daggers more often than not (but Godot help you if he brandishes a ten-ton sword.) He would most likely wear shorts and glasses as well if they have any for males in this game due to both being in his PSU apparel. He may or may not have pink hair (he was one of the few to have that hair color on PC/PS2. Not even that many female characters had pink hair.)

The other two slots... I'm unsure about. I'll probably leave those open for new ideas. The ideas could be partially influenced by past characters, but probably not fully.

DEM_CIG
Jul 20, 2011, 11:37 PM
Since, I am only going to have two characters...

Main: Mr Cig- HuCast. That is what I started as in PSU as a Cast Hunter, so I will definitely be doing that.

Alternate: Natsume- FoMarl. As much as I love Cast, I love Tech.

HUcastRyu
Jul 22, 2011, 03:03 PM
Ryu-I was always fond of the name Ryu ever since sf2. Always give this name to a Hucast

Crisis-Based off my female mabinogi character crisiscore. This name is usually given to a RAcaseal or a female beast(class varies)

Soul-Based off of an old mabinogi character Soulknight. Always a Humar.

Seer-Not sure where this came from but I give it to my Newmans

Cris-Based off the name crisis and is usually a male version of the crisis character

Gryffin
Jul 22, 2011, 11:17 PM
My base of name has expanded as of late, but since shortly after I started playing PSU, I began to use Daruu as my main character's name. Its a play on Dallas, which is my real name. I still tend to use Gryffin for robots/unhuman/god characters though. ;) For my boys, I use Daruu, Gryffin, Viir, and Neid, and then my females are Raevus, Lavem, Puella and Aldora. I have additional ones I use when I'm allowed to have a ton of characters, like in Dynasty Warriors or Disgaea, but typically I don't need anymore than 8. ;O

Jul 25, 2011, 02:45 AM
Since i never use the same name for any game i think ill name my character either Otanashi or Black Op. Otanashi comes from an anime called Angel Beats and the second one comes from my lack of imagination for names

My name in PSO/PSU has always been "War".. but actually, the simple name was derived from the digmon, "Wargreymon" which was my first character's(HUman) name back in DC PSO..:P then eventually shortened to just War I believe in DC ver.2

NeonaPulsar
Aug 7, 2011, 10:53 PM
Neona: She has been in just about every game that i could name a female lead.

Silver: I like the name. :P

Tekk: My Minibeast (or beastling, whatever you call them). He's a new character idea i came up with on my psp2 and i like him.

Any character name from Touhou. :-P
Most likely Rumia, Yumemi, or Kogasa...

Probably other ones too though, like Patchy/Patchouli...but Patchy sounds cuter...Or Nan.

Something along those lines.

rezakon
Aug 8, 2011, 06:54 AM
crtlaltdel: Been my cast name since PSO.
Rubi: Newman name since PSO.

I'm probably going to change them this time around but I've never been good with names that fit my characters. I think I originally went with crtlaltdel for kicks but Rubi was because I missed out on all the names I wanted for my newman and I had just finished watching fifth element not long before that.

Enforcer MKV
Aug 8, 2011, 08:30 AM
Enforcer Mk -insert Roman numeral here-

Then, I'll probably make a Hunewearl or FOnewearl, and make a play off of Aurrora, just as a throwback to PSU and PSZ.

After that, I'll just fuss around with the character creator, and have fun with it. :P

Forces were next to useless in the DC version, anyway. Support was okay, but their attack techs were worthless.

Well, what am I saying? Both DC versions were horribly unbalanced and sucked overall, in how they were made and how they were balanced.

The balance was hilarious. I watched a video of a HUmar fight with De Rol Le yesterday. The damage he does with Gizonde is just ridiculous.
