I just recently used the name Bradwr. Its a welsh name, yet it means traitor, which is exactly who this character is. :wink:

While you did choose the name on purpose, Ive once ran in into a pretty funny coincidence.

I named the death god of one of my old stories to Yachmar, later on I found out that in some arabic languange (not sure which) it meant donkey. Ok, now donkeys were the symbols of death... Wierd.

Hehe... thats pretty funny. :D I used the 2000 names website, which I find to be very resourceful, as well as Maedhros.

What I do is sometimes I choose a name from the way a charactor looks or dresses(eg.My lich has a C3-PO body and is Golden Death). For My main guy, I decide which sounds I like (K,R) and came up with the cool sounding name of Kurek.

I use some names from LOTR and mix around letters. It sounds rather cool. The tric is to find a use for them. I've got a whole page of names that only half of them I use.

It's in The Hobbit. Girion was the Lord of Dale, before Smaug the dragon destroyed it. His descendent Bard killed Smaug, and restored Dale.

Use EBON, the Everchanging Book of Names. It's very well made, but sometimes it just won't work. My advice is use it as soon as you download it, or it might not work after. :?

I make names by banging on the keyboard in random patterens.
Example: Hybg
Then, I add vowels.
Example: Habyage
Then I remove letters i see unfit.
Example: Habage
And add letters I want.
Example: Heabeage
And in no time, a name solution that can be used for any setting!

Hmm, you should also use this technique when posting. Correct me if im wrong, but by the looks of things your only using the "random keyboard bashing" technique. You should use the rest of the steps you mentioned in your previous post. You might get something worth responding too.

What am I trying to say is, 90% of your post do not add to the forum in anyway. Apparently its hard for you to sense sarcasm over the internet. I was implying that your posts would be better off not posted at all. So I suggested that you use your own technique for naming minifigures, in your posts. So the sarcasm was your post stink, so it seems as if your just using the random keyboard bashing technique, and not following up with the rest of the steps that you mentioned. You have dug up about 10 dead threads, and in everyone you have been asked not to do it unless you have something to add .As far as I can see you have yet to add anything in any of the threads you have dug up. You are just posting lame comments to get your post count up. Its not the quanity Danju its the quality.
