Hello fellow forumites. I am Lady Saga, and today I'd like to ask for your help in naming my future scout character.

He's gonna have a North American woods Indian sort of vibe to him, Cherokee, perhaps. If I were to guess his demeanor, I would say he's more of a peaceful hunter/gatherer type, rather than a warrior.

His "job" will be to scout locations none of my characters have been to yet. I'll be using the paper map to guide him and his horse. Chances are he'll mostly hunt moose and bunnies and peaceful sorts of wildlife. Oh, wolves, too. Maybe bears when he gets really advanced.

I tried going on some Cherokee websites, looking for some simple names. Believe it or not this is harder than it sounds. All of these websites want money, or want you to buy a book or something. Or they don't have what I'm looking for.

The best I can come up with so far is Fleeted Foot and Eagle Scout, but I wanna get more ideas. It helps to have your character's name planned out before actually creating him or her, I've found. In the past I used to start creating characters. Oops! What should I name him or her? Next thing you know I'm stuck! Naming is very important for me.

How about Adahy, meaning Lives in the Woods.

Ahanu or He Laughs is not Cherokee, but I thought it might fit your name-that-sounds-like-something tradition. smile.gif

So I take it you are not looking for a tongue-in-cheek name like Sc^ut's Ho~or? But rather a straight, RL Native American name? I have a list of some Native names that I have used in the past, a few are Cherokee, most are a mix of all tribes.

Adahy is a Cherokee name meaning "In the woods" (Grits ninjaed me on that one)
Ahmik = "The beaver", a symbol of skill
Apenimon = trusty
Bemossed = the walker
Chankoowashtay = Good Road
Chayton = falcon
Dyami = an eagle
Gomda = wind
Hache-hi = wolf
Honon = bear
Igasho = a wanderer
Kangee = raven
Kele = sparrow hawk
Kibbe = the night bird
Knoton = the wind
Kohana = swift
Kuruk = bear
Langundo = peaceful
Mikasi = coyote
Mingan = grey wolf
Namid = the star dancer
Tokala = fox
Wilny = eagle singing while flying

If its an Argonain, then names get real simple.

What race were you planning on using?

Man, you all are fast. Correct, SubRosa, I'm thinking this one might have just a normal name, but something that is actually Am. Indian. Maybe I'll do a play on an actual Indian name, or maybe I won't I'm not sure yet.

Hmm I'm liking Dyami. I'm gonna sleep on all these names so far, though. What would eagle scout be? And how did you come up with all those names so fast? biggrin.gif

King Coin: Probalby Redguard. Assuming I can get some long braided or long straight hair on a Redguard male, this is what he will be.

Hey... no fair copying! I just rolled up a Redguard scout last night. tongue.gif Though anyone calls her a male will get first and arrow to the groin then mauled by a wild animal.

Those are all some names I copied from a baby names book a long time ago, to help me come up with names for characters. I just skimmed through them to find ones that seemed 'scouty'. I do not see any names that correspond to "scout", so I am not sure about combining it with anything else.

Try looking through some regular baby name sites. Like Baby Name Guide

I didnt know of your scout...it's a total coincidence, honest. I'm just thinking I can most-easily make a Redguard look like an American Indian.

I will not call her a sir, no worries. Guess she's not much of a "Mazoga" huh? wink.gif

Wow. Okay, thanks, as always. smile.gif

Hey off-topic, but what's up with Blademaster over in the Guns thread in OB: general? He seems kinda mean.

I think the word "troll" sums it up, along with Echonite. I have decided not to reply again today on that topic, so I do not rise to the bait. Better to hang out here with people who are not trying to pick a fight.

You are both better people than I am.

Good to know. Yea, he's taking on the entire room! What a little ..... <-rhymes with witch.

I can't help but always wonder whom I'm talking to on the other end. When folks get that trollish, what is it that makes them that way?

I liked your comeback, Coin. You're right....everyone is offering opinions and ideas in that thread. Nothing more. The discussion was rolling along pretty smoothly, an amazing feat in and of itself for such a controversial subject, until Blademaster07 showed up. I'll have to remember that name.

I suck at names, I usually go on WoW go to character creation then randomize the names, when one rolls that I like, I make a few edits to it, and wala, I got myself a name, or I just google what type of name I want...

And yea, I saw that thread, I did not even bother posting, just reading what Blademaster post makes my blood boil so instead of unleashing that anger at him, I just told myself to resist posting because I have a more than a few words I'll like to shove in his head, and I'll have you know, it takes ALLOT to get me angry. tongue.gif, so I just decided to spend the day here in Chorrol, way better, and more calm.

Yea, I did that one day. Not the WoW board itself, but I went on some sites which are specifically RPG-based that had some name suggestions, ideas, techniques, etc. Apparently I'm not the only one who really searches for that perfect name!

Hey. Just wanted to let you all know I did create my new scout character. He's a redguard named Dyami The Scout. Didn't really have time to get into his game yet, though. Busy weekend. But he looks good. Like I've said, it's easier for me to create a male than a female.

Hey everyone. Since Crystal Beth retired, I'm wanting to start another magic-based character. This time, I'm going for a dark elf Spellsword type, though. I'm thinking he'll be mildly evil somehow. Not sure until I got him created, though.

But I'm stuck on his name. huh.gif I've been trying to come up with a name for him, one which is a dirty word in disguise, kinda/sorta.

I had an Altmer mage female in Oblivion whom I named "Igodah Go^Pe" (I gotta go pee). Something like that.

I've come up with a couple names which are umm.....hmmm...guess I'll just say them.

Khum^shott the Bold

The Mighty Khahkhayre

..... See what I mean? They're dirty words in disguise. I'm not sure I like either of those names, though.

Anybody wanna help me think of a better one? biggrin.gif

EDIT: OH AND IT'S RAINING OUTSIDE. So this name needs to happen TONIGHT if possible!
.....
