Post subject:  Hunter Naming Assistance

Hello everyone! I don't know exactly where to put this, so I just dropped this topic in the Hunter discussion...

Anyways, hello! I play a a few characters, but the on I play the most often is my beloved Beast Mastery Troll Hunter: Jimboreborn, however most people who play with me simply call me "Jim" or "Jimbo". When I first made Jim, I initially made his name as a joke and reference to how I'd "troll" my friends in first person shooters by camping them with a long-ranged weapon. As time went on and my stables gained new additions, I started to become attached to Jim.

I started trying to make him match with the beasts I used. Especially since the new addition of the spirit raptor, Gon, causing my thematic love for trolls to increase and a drive to make Jim the best troll hunter ensued. I tried obtaining the gear to beef up Jim so not only would he look good, but it'd also feel good playing as him. With this newfound interest in this simple troll who went by the name "Jimbo" I started to feel regret on adding the "reborn" tag at the end of his name. Everything felt right with Jim except his name.

If this wall of introduction text and general wailing bothers anyone, in short, I need helping creating a new name for Jim that feels like an authentic troll name. However, I still want to keep the "Jim" part of the name. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

idk I'm not good with authentic names.

Here are a couple resources that could inspire you with names and information about the language:

Hiya Jimbo! :) Welcome to the forums. I love your troll, that's awesome that you started to get so attached to him! Really cute story, and congrats on your Gon tame! :D

Jimbo sounds pretty fitting for a troll as it is, but I'm sure that name alone would already be taken on a server.

I'm not sure about 'authenticity' since trolls are kind of a cultural mishmash, but I'll try brainstorming some ideas and maybe some of these sound a bit trollish or can give you some inspiration? (my own troll character is named Aku'zai if that helps at all too, you could always put apostrophes in for a roleplaying sense even if you can't in the actual game)

These two names were the first thing I thought of in my mind when trying to decide on a name, but I felt I needed to be more of my own troll, if that makes any sense.

Respect to Vol'jin and Zul'jin, regardless.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
As for the name "Jimbo" it was indeed already taken... I couldn't bear to put accents in the name either. I felt that I had to be original!

Hmm. How about Zenjim? It's the only other name I can think of at the moment.

Zenjim is a nice option however it does remind me of Sen'jin though... I'll keep it in mind, thank you for your suggestion. ^^

Hmmm, what about Jimpest?

It has "Jim" in it... it has "Pest" in it (which hearkens back you you being a trolly troll and camping), it kind of sounds like a combination of Jim+Tempest, and the best yet, Jimpest is actually a real word that dates back to the late 1800's. Jimp, which is used to describe one as being slender, handsome and spruce.

So essentially you'd be the Jimpest Troll in town 8-)

I kinda like the way you created this name, however it doesn't quite connect with me as a Hunter name.. I'll try and keep it on the back burner if I ever make a caster-class like a mage. ^^

Thank you again for the suggestions, although none of them are really catching on with me...
I did have a phrase "TAZ'JIMBO!" as my battlecry though, so that's... something.. ?


yeesh, I feel so pathetic without a profile pic/signature...

I haven't made signatures in a very long time, but I hope you don't mind if I took a stab at something for you Jimbo. :) (what can I say, I just really loved your troll!) At the very least maybe they can tide you over until you find something better!

Oh my this is...
I can't thank you enough for this! This is wonderful!

I'll use the avatar for awhile until I feel the motivation to draw Jim myself :P

I'm glad you like it! :hug: Hopefully you find the perfect name soon, and I'd love to see your drawing one day! :)

Welcome to the forums, Jimbo! :D

Might I suggest just a simple change to the name itself? Such as Jhimbo? It looks and sounds very troll-ish. (If that spelling isn't already taken on your server/s?)

If that doesn't work, here's a bit of background on the name that might help give you some ideas! The given name James, came into the English language from the Old French variation James of the late Latin name Iacomus. Diminutives include Jim, Jimmy, Jimmie, Jamie, Jimbo and others. (Source:James (name) - Wikipedia.)

Other translations include: Jakobo, Tiago, etc (see the linked wikipedia article for others). ♥
