Longest Character Name


Pathfinder Campaign Setting General Discussion

Cheliax

So I'm bored and wondering what's the longest character name you ever came up with for one of your characters. I'll start with my retired gnome illusionist who was nicknamed "Onetree". Seems short I know, but then it's not his full name which is:

Onetreefallenoverasmallstreaminthemiddleofafieldafterafiercethunderstormrol ledthroughandstruckitwithlightninginthemiddleofsummer

Okay, your turn.


HMMMM, clan must have followed an ancient tradition of naming child after first thing seen after birth.


Damian Sagergine "Tetigistus" Valerian Aidelthyme.

(Day-me-ann, Say-jer-guy-n, Tet-e-jist-us, Vuh-leer-ee-un, Eye-dull-time)

He was the only sorcerer I ever played (3.0). A human who claimed to be a half-elf and blew something like 90% of his cash on clothes. (Had to be silk and have continual flame on them, had dozens of ridiculous outfits.)

well, my personal longest was:

Dipthong Polyglot Syllable Tomas d'Sivis.

commonly called Dip.

one of my players is playing a bleachling wizard who collects names...not sure what it is now, but something like

Doctor Master Dumptruck Ellieraepen Chief, Esquire.

There is a LOT more to it, that's just the most I remember offhand.

She goes by "Doc"

-t

Shadow Lodge

Stregoni Benefici, or "Ellara" to, well, everyone.

That would be the gnome sorceror I played in a Legacy of Fire campaign, who also did the name collection thing:

Jerboa Weaselfriend Tamperlight Shadecaller Geniekin Fiendflight Copperpot Withertoe Rustkey Spidersnack Searflesh Thumbscrew Gnollbait Goatmaster Greatprotector Newtbane Cactusnibbler Bookfinder Rockzapper... and his companion Niloufar the aqueous ferret


Bob the Rogue


It depends on whether you're talking proper name, or chosen name. For proper name, I played a half-dragon barbarian named Tsalychrlthrin (tsa-lik-ril-ith-er-in). I figured that a draconic name would be long and difficult, and I wanted to make a name with as few vowels as I could. On the other hand, my namesake was a half-orc fighter/wizard who, in a shocking display of egomania, granted himself the title of the Merciful All-Knowing God-Emperor Drothan the Invincible. Squeezing that onto the Name space of a character sheet was a challenge.

No, but it was inspired by Dragonlance.

I was gonna say, where is his life's goal? Don't most Gnome names have to include their life's goal?

But I believe that is how DL does it.


I have a NPC in Forgotten Realms named Nassirbinapal Ubaidur Kelemvor Jaamal al-Din. Nassirbinapal is actually a real name for a friend of mine in high school and from what I can remember when I made his name, Jaamal al-Din meant "beauty of the faith" and Ubaidur Kelemvor meant "Kelemvor's servant".


Hiya.

Longest character name I've had was for a halfling fighter (1e) named "Unalivasalkelindukosis". The runner up was for a female Ahazu Warrior (Talislanta 2e/3e), who's name was "Dok Sa'No Cha Hock Paa'Re".


zog ;)


the longest name I ever gave to a character as a Gnome Illusionist.

Dandizidarius Erebus Maxlovious. Or just "Dizzy" to his friends.
