Aylah was my first character and I have to admit that I just used my imagination to create a name that sounded night elvish and hinted of nature and such things. I have been playing Pen & Paper Roleplaying games for a very long time, and creating names from scratch is nothing that comes hard to me.
Next up came Rakel. Since the Burning Crusade was still far off, and Fear Ward was such a nice spell to have, I decided to go for the stout folk, and I needed a name to go with it. Since I somewhat associate dwarves with colder climates and Nordic mythology, looking through some online dictionaries with Nordic names provided a solid selection. I liked the Nordic version of “Rachel”, so Rakel breathed the crisp, cold air of Dun Morogh not very soon afterwards.
My cute, little warlock ended up with the name Agonya. As you can see, it’s pretty obvious.
