    I have a couple names I like to use.

    Yomruzz Nomna, which is just a weird name that I've applied to gnomes, changelings, and a few other more exotic races.

    Ahm N'ahm N'ahm, A lizardfolk barbarian, who is known to eat his enemies. He's also very proud of his name, as it translates to Ahm, son of Ahm, son of Ahm. the Ahms are a very prestigious line, his grandfather and father both being very powerful heroes and warriors.

    I have a character, "Slainte Mtath", based upon the Gaelic drinking toast 'Slainte Mhath' but no one could read it so I added the phonetic T. "slon-tay ma-toth". Created him in October of 1987. Whoah, he'll be 28 this year.

    I once had a cleric that I role-played as if he was obsessed with undead, I called him "Mortis Bonescrolls", long retired.

    My wife has a wee gnome fighter/illusionist named "Sprout Stepponable". She has a gigantic human fighter henchman named "Vinson Massif", which is the biggest mountain in Antarctica.

    Years ago, we once had a party of characters each based upon exclamations, I can remember "Jehosephat Jump" and "Graightskaht".

    My favorite current character to play is really minimalist: a half-elven cleric/ranger simply named "Oq".

    My nephew plays a nasty brick of a dwarf fighter named "Ascendo Tuum". Look that one up in Latin.

    My sister (art teacher) names all of her characters after artists, she has a paladin "Georgia O'Keefe", mu/thief "Matisse" and gnome Ill/thief "Van Gogh". Alas, her ranger "Rodin" was recently eaten by a Remorhaz.

    Not D&D, but Call of Cthulhu. In a short campaign I GMd a while back, one of my players named his character Tech. And he'd ALWAYS introduce himself as "Name's Tech. Just Tech. No first, no last, just Tech." So, we had a character in a modern setting in America with no last name. I let him do it, since he was the funny player, but never in a derailing way.

    If that's not bad, I had them check into a hospital focusing on insomnia and other sleep studies. After a few days in the hospital, he introduced himself to nurse with his usual intro. In a moment of realization, another players yells "Wait, what did you put on those hospital forms?!"

    Unfortunately, my names are usually bland and nobody uses them. :P Though I like Natheus.

    My suspicion is that since he said his name is "Tech. Just Tech. No first, no last, just Tech," checking into anywhere would be a difficult experience. Unless there's another, even more hilarious level that I'm not getting either...

    Yep, that's it. We decided that he had given fingerprints, and the hospital got his real name from there. They probably assumed he was insane due to sleep issues or something.

    Tommy "Two-Tooth" O'Connor, the retired privateer. Don't call him a pirate, he hates that. As he would put it, "Yargh, there be a mighty important difference between them two. Privateering be an act of war, and puts ye at risk of getting shot by yer foes. Piracy be an act of crime, and puts ye at risk of being shot by anybody, or tossed in jail."

    He served as navigator under Captain Alistair McAlastor.

    My sister's Fighter is named "Skullstomper" due to an incident as defender of a gate for a walled town. The giant zombies of the enemy army were ramming the door down, and the character--a melee specialist--wasn't content with lobbing handaxes at siege monsters. Instead, she jumped onto a giant's torso and successfully cleaved it to death, earning her the epithet from the townspeople.
    Her birth name hasn't been heard since.

    My Gnome Conjurer was named "Adalbert K. Fuchs III," partly because "noble-bright" is a fun pair of adjectives to put next to the last name of "fox," but mainly for the nickname "Bert." He had a familiar named "Ernst," though I'm not sure anyone got the joke.

    I'm getting into a new game for 5e pretty soon. We're starting at level ten, and if you've been watching close, you'll know that the new Undying warlock patron can allow a Drow elf a several-thousand year lifespan.

    Well, having long forgotten his actual name, and having one of "those" senses of humor, he dubbed himself Avery.

    Avery Longtime, the time abyss.

    Waaay back in the 90s, my 14-15 year old self played a human fighter called Firelord Icemaster. The game was Dungeons & Dragons, he was my first fighter and almost all his stats were 13 or 14. Fun to play, but I only got to run him for maybe four or five sessions, before we started playing another campaign. We did that a lot back then.

    A D&D group I used to play with had a bad habit of starting new games on a fairly frequent basis, usually without concluding the previous one. As a result, I began putting less and less effort into my characters, since it seemed clear they weren't going to last long anyway.

    The first notable example was when one of the other players declared that he was going to play a dwarf paladin named Keg Kegssen. I hadn't come up with a character yet, so I jumped on board and declared that I was playing his battlerager brother Tap Kegssen. Tap was your typical battlerager - poor hygiene, not very bright, prone to get into a fight with the slightest provocation (or none at all if he was bored), and covered head to toe in heavy armor and spikes. Rather than a backpack, he carried all his gear in a barrel that he strapped to his back. He also eventually obtained a custom magic item - it was like a decanter of endless water except that it was a bucket... of endless beer. On several occasions he placed the bucket on the ground, set it to geyser mode, and danced happily under the beer sprinkler.

    A later game with the same group, the DM randomly declared that everyone had to roll their stats in order, old-school style (the one and only time I have ever or will ever play in a game with this rolling method). Clearly I wasn't the only one no longer taking their characters seriously by this point, because someone else decided to play an elf ranger named Spock. From there, one after another of us named our characters after Star Trek characters. I ended up with a rogue named James Kirk that specialized in unarmed fighting and tragically got his armor torn up almost every fight... for the two or three sessions before we started yet another campaign, anyway.

    How many times can a single thread get necroed? Geez. How do you people even find these old threads?
    I'm currently writing a story, titled "Zenith: Another World Saga."

    It's a fantasy/adventure story. Here's the summary:

    When I opened my eyes, I was in a fantasy world. I quickly discovered that it functioned off of game-like rules (levels, EXP, skills, and so on). Taking the name Zenith, I decided to make the best of my new world and live as an adventurer aiming for the top together with my new best friend Rozenskye. And I might be functionally immortal? An Isekai-style story.

    Some of the more interesting names I've used... in gaming as well as D&D:
    Rollin D' Haye
    Yul Feelwell
    Ugonna Feelwell
    Nibbles McCrotch
    Axe Smashum
    Phillup M' Pockets
    Fajita Jones
    Sizzle Britches


    About to embark on a with a 5e Lore Bard names Eddie van Hendrix (a naive attempt to use popular names to bring himself a sense of greatness), who will be a spin off of Starlord, who was abducted by aliens at the age of 16.

    He had already become a local neighborhood name by having a garage band.

    The aliens wanted to use his talents by amplifying his abilities, and weaponizing his talent to take over masses.
    after discovering this, he steals a bunch of tech, and uses a dimensional jumper and landed in Forgotten Realms.

    Thoughts?

    I'm running a Dwarven Warpriest named Farkin Schistface. He's a proud scion of the Schistface clan, and will readily recount that his father was Droon-Kan Schistface, and his grandfather was Fallin-Doon Schistface. He proudly regales party members with the story of how, at the Battle of Orcfang, the Dwarven vanguard were all Schistface, and that after the battle, King Rubus Rustbeard famously pronounced that there is no courage like the courage of Schistface Dwarves. His favorite battle cry is, "Ho, miscreant! You're about to get Schistfaced!"

    Translating “Ensign Redshirt” into Norwegian gets “Fenrik Rødskjorte,” into Spanish gets “Alférez Camisaroja,” or something to that effect...

    Note that when using Google Translate, you’ll have to look up the military rank separately, since Google Translate wants to translate “ensign” using the meaning “flag or banner” rather than rank.
