How unique is your name?

Unread post by Azunara » Tue Jun 29, 2010 10:42 am

So, today, while bored, I looked up various character names of mine on Wowarmory.

I was surprised to find multiple Azunaras. 3 or 4 of them are mine that I recognize (There's the level 80 druid, then the level 13 hunter, then the level 55 DK I never played...) But I was surprised to find, for example, a draenei hunter (80) named Azunara, a gnome DK named Azunara (>.>), a 71 hunter on Wyrmrest named Azunara....(Well, that kills that name if I ever wanted to see Wyrmrest Accord. ;_;)

Firewing, my hunter, I wasn't surprised for. I expected a lot of Firewings. My favorite is a level 80 BE hunter named Firewing. It's her anti-her!

Kieryon, my DK is unique.

Cathriyn, my pally, surprised me. Didn't expect that name to be unique. (And it should stay that way! *nods.*)

Kefira and Tykell, my future worgen names, weren't unique. Kefira was like Firewing, very common, while Tykell was more like Azunara. Less common, but they were a few people.

Xeyvron, my human hunter's name is unique.

Ravynira is also unique (I thought I had a char named that somewhere...Must fix this.)

Terania, my BE hunter, is not unique, a few people with that name.

So what about you guys? How unique are your character's names?

Only one of each Jadvya and Melesmelda, both mine. Rhoaan and Aliere are taken by multiple toons on other servers, but not very common.

Stereo is unique, but most of my characters aren't. Saturo, for example, is used on most servers I've tried.

I also exist on DeviantArt.

Let's see...

There are quite a few "Eloin"s...
There are quite a few "Kamalia"s...
There are A LOT of "Clover"s...
There are quite a few "Tyrii"s...
There's only one "Rickeymortis"!
There's only a few "Serefine"s...
There are a lot of "Becca"s...
And there are A LOT of "Jax"s.

I guess my names aren't a whole lot of unique. :lol:

- I'm the only Rhyela; there was at one time another, level 78, but it appears that he/she hasn't been on in a few months because they disappeared from the listing.

- I'm the only Edaia (my druid 2nd main).

- I'm one of two Narcille (level 80 shaman alt); the other is level 13 and has been for a long time. I expect that one to drop off soon, too.

- My level 70 priest Lysende is one of three.

- My orc warrior alt Grimelda is one of 27

- My blood elf mage Aeowynn is one of 103 X_x

- My paladin alt Trystaan is one of 13

- Hildna, my hunter alt, is the only one

- My future worgen warrior Lotice will be one of 10

So, most of mine are pretty unique names. :D

There are 8 Sarayanas.
2 Echozoes. The other one is an undead rogue, which is ironic because I chose that name for my resto druid because of it's greek roots - "I have life." I thought it'd be perfect for a healer. :)
41 Kathrynnes. Bah.
30 Amandalas. Double bah. /grouch.
Even the name I used because my friends' 2-year-old daughter mispronounced my name as such is not unique!!!

I find it particularly amusing that names I would definitely consider female - such as my hordie's name Onoka - are used on male toons. :lol:

There are more Rynos than you could imagine... AN ARMY OF RYNOS AT MY DISPOSAL... they wait, silently, for a leader to emerge...

Yeah, only one person who is not me with the name Bebopbo.

Most names I use are used by others.

Only complete unique name I ever had I think was Nimnims.

There are lots of Anansis which is no surprise, but there are only 13 Shockeyes, two of them being mine (Shockeye is my Shaman).

Nalrania is one of two....Surprised me. It makes me confused how you think a name of yours is and should be unique, you thought it up, but a good 10 other people have it.

Also, Kierion, a variation of Kieryon, has quite a few characters. One ironically is a Pally. It's my anti-DK! >.<

I don't think there are any other Nightzephons lol its a weird name, but people have come really close to it. There are tons of SIlverbullets too. But my troll hunter Shamoke's name is all his own. I had one guy who knew where it came from. I was so impressed I actuality gave him some gold when he asked for it because he couldn't afford a mount.

My names aren't very unique, I guess!

There are 77 toons named Hada - and strangely many of them are male. >.>

There are 30 toons named Rehema - my Tauren Shaman

There are only 5 Arajah's - my Petopians hunter

And my mage, Pheera, I don't play her too often but there are 30 of those.

Giordana there's only 4. So I guess that's pretty rare.
Jobiensis is extremely rare as I'm the only one with the name.
Rexiah is uncommon as there are 4
Zarilira is a little uncommon there are 5

Just for the heck of it I looked up "Sin" to see how many there are in case I team up with Veph and create this new toon. There are 141 and sure enough someone on Nesingwary has it. It's a level 72 druid. :(

Edit: Added new girl tonight so put her name in.

Ohhh, so your name is from Tolkien! I had thought before it was based off of Sliverin from Harry Potter. I guess that's what happens when I have a sister who is a HP fanatic. :lol:

I found this to be very interesting.

Nessingwary
Ximbol - 1 character
Bitka - 8 characters. (this one I thought you also be unique)

Tanaris
Quillthiliwt - 1 character
Xephyr - 136 characters
Xeliph - 3 characters
Deadlyknives - 11 characters
Liecan - 14 characters
Junkdrawer - 16 characters
Quell - 150 characters
Sorree - 7 characters
Healiana - 26 characters

Most of my character names are uncommon. This was fun to look up
Nesingwary Petopians - Bitka, Quïll Xendral, Ximbol, Saehi, and Tryxter
Nesingwary Petopian Alliance - Sorree and Xylda
