    Surac, the Winged Aasimar Inquisitor.

    Because Suraci was too obvious of a palindrome for Icarus.

    I've had three characters called Gork the Orc.
    For some reason, only one of them had any orc blood.

    This has a long tradition in D&D. After all, we have all heard of Melf, inventor of the Acid Arrow. He's a Male Elf.

    First-time players are always a hoot.
    Daggera, the Rogue Who Doesn't Use Daggers.
    Xanten (fairly standard), with his Hawk familiar, Hudson.
    Goldenbell Who Loves Horses (all on the "Name" line of the sheet... maybe it's an elf thing?), with her animal companion Whitemane the Wonderhorse (also all on the name line).

    As the Old Man of the group, I took on the role of Paul E. Hedron, Grumpy Cleric.

    My all-time favorite is Blastum Heelum, Cleric/Magic-User.
    Why yes, Warlock is my solution for everything.

    I had a friend who played a half-orc called Olga Hindegard. It wasn't actually her name, she was locked up overnight in jail for being a disordely drunk and when they asked her name to write it down she slurred something that they just interpreted as a name so thats what the character stuck with. I dont recall exactly what she was trying to say, but 'Hindegard' was meant to be 'and a guard'

    And Rary, of mnemonic enhancer fame, who was named that because one of the level titles for magic-users (back when they were called "magic-users", and there was such a thing as level titles) was Medium.

    In a similar vein, I once made a character for a Game of Thrones campaign by the name of Ser Visrode.

    I was in a one-shot D&D game one time where three of the four players, independently and without consultation, named our characters Phil. We ended up spending half the game making fun of the fourth PC because she wasn't named Phil.

    Similarly, back when classes had lists of level-based titles, a friend of mine made a magic-user named Weroff Thaddeus Crowne (or something along those lines). He went by Weroff T. C.. He intended to achieve the "wizard" title, of course.

    Had a raven familiar named Quoth, too.

    In a paranoia game, I had a character named Di-R-Eya.

    In D&D, the funniest names I came up with were both gnomes: Gnarland and his trusty pseudo-dragon familiar, Rhadcliffe, and the slightly annoying Gnaddeus (but you can call me Gnads...why do people always giggle like that? Humans are so strange...)

    I remember one campaign where one of the players thought that the DM was taking too long to make the adventure, and so gave his gnome enough names to have his initials be [DM's name].C.O.M.E.U.P.W.I.T.H.T.H.E.A.D.V.E.N.T.U.R.E.A.L.R .E.A.D.Y.

    For a one-shot, I once played a character named "Stirdix Con Intwizka." Since then, I have had several characters named "Stirdix" (with some having a last name of "Wizka" due to the fact that it actually sounds OK).
    "There's a dragon horde in those there mountains, just waiting for any adventurer to come lookin' for it!"

    FYI: If I use a British spelling for anything, its because English (Canadian) is the default language for my spell-checker, not because I'm actually British.

    I'm probably going to steal liberally from the Key and Peele East/West College Bowl bit by the time we're out of this campaign. Ozamataz Buckshank is a great name for a halfling sorcerer.

    My past characters have included "Untimely Demize", "Dangerously Adequate", "Roaring Bowels", "Yor Farther". The fun with that last one was seeing the DM come up with new ways for the NPCs to react.

    In a D20 modern game a few years back, we had a smart hero named Eechi Wang. He was supposed to be a chemistry and computer programming major, but he just ended up being a perverted drug dealer with a funny name. The player was all too happy when he finally got crushed by an undead behemoth.

    EDIT: I know this isn't a dnd story, but it was too funny to pass up.

    I've got 3:

    An NPC in a campaign my friend DM'd- a half-orc shopkeeper named "Uuuuuuurrrrrllll". And if you took less than 5 seconds to say his name, you were mispronouncing it.

    A level 20 wizard/archmage I created for a single-session "quickie" campaign: Natherion Elranis Feramilreth Bill the Indomitable. It was the "Bill" that always got everyone. I played him as a snooty gray elf, and since no one could remember his full name, they'd just call him "Bill". He hated it, and it was hilarious around the table.

    My current character- see the signature below.
    Current character:
    -Flik Farstrider "Guildmaster of the Azure Avengers, Freedom Fighter of Gelinde, Emissary of Mithlonde, Citedal Poker Champion, Blood Fang Spelunker Extraordinare, M'osh Vrasu, Liberator of Gnomes, Attorney-At-Law, Hobbyist Mapmaker, Marble Connoisseur, and Sommelier of All Fine Leaf"

    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature. (On a ship in the middle of an ocean, in a hurricane)

    Just realized I should post this one too, in case I change my signature:

    Flik Farstrider "Guildmaster of the Azure Avengers, Freedom Fighter of Gelinde, Emissary of Mithlonde, Citedal Poker Champion, Blood Fang Spelunker Extraordinare, M'osh Vrasu, Liberator of Gnomes, Attorney-At-Law, Hobbyist Mapmaker, Marble Connoisseur, and Sommelier of All Fine Leaf"

    I've played a lot of characters across many campaigns and several different games, but little Flik has been my favorite character I've ever played. A halfing rogue, and being a fan of the Dragonlance series, I decided to base his personality I on a typical 'kender' mentality. Perhaps cliche', but I don't care. One thing he loves to do after any sort of adventure, big or small, is grant himself titles based on what happened. Here's one of those stories:

    The party had traveled to a distant region of the continent populated by half-orc barbarian tribes. While there, Flik's insatiable curiosity about everything led him to want to learn the Orcish language. I declared my intention to the DM, that at the next level up I was going to spend a skill point to learn the language, and during the entire time we were in the region I role-played him practicing and trying to pick up Orcish- including making horribly-awesome mistakes as he got the hang of it. In one such case, a half-orc native "challenged" him to a duel- IE, tried to murder him for his stuff. Just before that scene, I had Flik ask around to learn all the curse words, insults, and otherwise derogatory terms he could. I had also recently taken the feat "Taunt" with him. So, what else was there to do when the savage tried to run me through? I used the Taunt, and told the group I was going to hurl my new-found knowledge of orcish profanity in his face. Something along the lines of 'how the orc's father must like to do it with elves, and this and that'. I rolled for the Taunt.. and rolled a 1. The table just stared at it for a few seconds, and then the conversation went something like this:

    Everyone: ....
    DM: "Okay, you believe you rattled off your string of insults correctly, but you don't. You end up just saying one random word, over and over. You say.."
    Me: "Banana!"
    DM: "What?"
    Me: "Banana. First thing that just popped into my head. So I am yelling at the orc, "Banana! Banana banana banana! BAAAANAAAANAAAA!!" While making vulgar body-language motions to go along with what I think I'm actually saying."
    Everyone: *5 minutes of uncontrollable laughter and various pantomines*
    DM: "Okay, so this happens, your Taunt effect fails, but the half-orc is so dumbstruck at this completely ridiculous and unexpected display, you have actually Stunned him for this round."
    Me: "Hey DM, what's 'banana' in Orcish?"
    DM: *thinks for a minute* "Ummm it's M'osh. Yeah, M'osh."

    The fight ended with Flik killing the savage, and with his dying breath, the DM describes the half-orc with a puzzled look on his face, as he collapes, he say's ".....m'osh?"

    After that fight, I looked up the orcish word for 'slayer' or 'killer' on some website, and came up with "Vrasu" And thereafter while in the orclands, Flik dubbed himself "M'osh Vrasu", the "Banana Slayer".
    Current character:
    -Flik Farstrider "Guildmaster of the Azure Avengers, Freedom Fighter of Gelinde, Emissary of Mithlonde, Citedal Poker Champion, Blood Fang Spelunker Extraordinare, M'osh Vrasu, Liberator of Gnomes, Attorney-At-Law, Hobbyist Mapmaker, Marble Connoisseur, and Sommelier of All Fine Leaf"

    The funniest name I had for a character was Botif - a Dwarf Ranger with a Hawk companion. He came from a long line of Hawk trainers, and so logically his family name was Hawker. Every time he introduced himself formally to new NPC's, the NPCs as well as the party members would all snicker - but nobody ever told poor Botif Hawker why he might not want to go by his full name.

    As far as interesting names...

    I like to play up any elemental aspects of a race. I had a woodling factotum named Fennel Feverbush and a Stonechild Barbarian named Jasper Rhyolite

    More often, I try to give names that, if translated from another language, would provide clear insight into the character's focus. However - if i had just kept the word in english - would be too on the nose....

    For example, I have a Dark Whisper Gnome Swift Hunter named Senka Ubica. Translated from Croation, that means "Shadow Killer". I also found that by picking the language of origin - it helped give additional traits to the character as well.

    I had a pair of Air Genasi siblings. The brother was named Furaito, and the sister was named Udana. Tanslated from Japanese and Nepali respectively, these both mean "flight"

    The first campaign I ever ran was full of people who thought they were funny. I had to deal with the following characters, all of whom survived to lvl 16 before the campaign had to end:

    Magic Bob the Sorceror and his Familiar: Jack Squat the Mighty "It."
    Tiny, the Half-Giant Barbarian.
    Clark, the warforged. (As in Clark Kent. A man of steel. hur hur.)
    Holy Hannah, the Cleric.
    Nature Boy the Druid and his Animal Companion: Bi-polar Bear.

    then we had a rogue and a paladin that had normal names.

    My wife usually plays a character named Marvel, though due to a lapse in handwriting skills some of our other players thought it was Manuel. After that Marvel was considered to look suspiciously like a mexican man in disguise.

    Sometimes I think I need new friends. Other times this crap makes me giggle. It's a crapshoot.
