View Full Version : d20 modern naming troubles

2010-10-10, 10:16 PM
So as the title implies, im made of fail, and cant think of a good name for my d20 modern character.

So the GM was heavily inspired by the world from an anime, Code Geass, borrowing such things as the Knightmare Frames (that is the correct spelling by the way), the Holy Britanian Empire, but expanded so it had total dominance of the world, the Geass powers, etc, but none of the characters.

He came up with a homebrew occupation of Britanian Noble, which is very simmilar to the occupation of celebraty, and this is whats giving me the most trouble, as I cant think of a good full name that sounds like it would be for someone high up in the world. Please halpz.

P.S. I highly reccomend watching code geass (with english dubs) if your into anime.

Well, based on the backstory of Code Geass, names that sound like French and British nobility seem to be in order.

Good first names: Alistair, Aidan, Braxton, Paxton, etc.

Behind the [Fore]name. (http://www.behindthename.com/)
Behind the Surname. (http://surnames.behindthename.com/)

Should help in all countries of the world.

Just pick a real name. Unlike in regular D&D settings, you don't have to think of a possibly stupid name like Blitzu Blamerwoo.

Lewis Siffer.
Sound it out phonetically.

If it's based on Code Geass, try something that is obviously not English but might sound like English to Japanese ears. Or pick random words out of a French furniture catalog (like Lelouch Red-lamp) ;).
