So how did you find your avatar name?

Personally, although a big game player I have never played online / MMO's, so when it came to finding a name for my character I turned to an online name generator.

After putting in a couple of personal details the engine went off and returned Oster Reveral Very Happy. Great I thought, a name made up of my own unique details...

after signing up and playing a while I decided to google the name and lo and behold, some other random had the same result.....meh.

Having spent a short time pondering on this, it turns out my character creation process (or at least for FFXIV) was pretty damn involved... From childhood influences and how easily I am molded by peers to how I got introduced to FFXIV in the first place, this post will have it all! (And some of it will even be relevant!)

So, female, because why not. I've done it before, I'll do it again. Totally not driven by studies that show people who play as things that don't apply to themselves irl are less likely to be bigoted assholes. Nope!
As far as race selection was concerned (this is important, I swear) a friend has previously put me off choosing human for anything where you have a choice due to its 'Vanilla-ness' and another removed elves... well there are reasons. I wasn't feeling quite absurd enough to make a Lalafel Warrior, and Catgirl was out on principle so it looks like Roegadyn is the race for me!

Youtube videos a la PlumpHelmetPlunk meant that I'd done some research on the game before buying and stumbled across a little pseudo language/name translation thing for, you guessed it, Roegadyn! 5 mins later I'm armed with a surname of Syznaent, an amalgamation of Sitting and Duck inspired by a moment pf exceptional wit at the tender age of 11 during a drama class.

Which left just the forename of Magg, which was relatively easier, since its based off my MagneticFerret usertag/thing, itself derived from a joke made by schoolchildren when introduced to the concept of magnetism and ferrites by a teacher who owned ferrets...

So yeah, entirely too involved a post but whatev's. I'm funny guys! Its just that I'm the only one who gets the references!

Lol this made me chuckle. There are so many experiences to draw on like this, yet when my turn came I completely drew blank. I wasn't prepared for it to be honest, and 20 mins later I turned to the fateful generator..

When I started vanilla FFXIV (Version 1.0) me and mate decided that our names would be first name from a video game character, then a last name from an anime,

so Flynn (Flynn Scifo - Tales of Vesperia)
Lawliet (L Lawliet - Death Note)

I had no idea which name I would use, so I used FFXIV's name generator, first choice was M'welli Tia. But it was already being used. Tia means aunt in Portuguese, and Tio uncle... you can probably guess what I did xD
