"Stewpid" was pretty much a name I chose because of luls. His pet's name is "Irwith" as in "I are with." As a BE Hunter, you need a goofy name.
My Monk's name is Memortine, which is a play on Memento mori
, which is Latin for "remember death" or "remember your motality," and morte
, which is French for death. I feminized it with the '-ine' ending, because the character is female. It sounds better if you pronounce it with an exaggerated French accent. Memorrrrtinn
. And I know what you're thinking, but the name was originally used for a Necromancer and a Priest. I just kind of like it and thought it had a unique... something.
Anyway, I have a hard time naming characters, because I want all my characters to be named Mazra, especially my main character, which changes from time to time. That's why my Druid is named Mazra. My male characters in GW2 are all named Mazra-something. My character in EVE Online is Mazra. Mazra just doesn't work as a female name, but I wanted to keep the M. It also helps that Memortine is shortened 'Mem' by most people, which brings back memories of when I played my Hunter (before the faction change). His name was Memitim back then, but people shortened it to Mem as well. Memitim is a Hebrew name for angels of death and destruction.
I have a thing for bombastic names. Except Mazra. Had no idea 'Mazra' was an actual name for anything, let alone an area in World of Warcraft. Came up with the name long before I ever heard of WoW, but now everyone wants to be like me. Edited, Dec 14th 2012 12:32am by Mazra
