I read a nice post over at World of Matticus the other day about character names. So I remembered to check the Armory to see if my own character name was still unique. After over 3 years in the WoW Armory I guess I'm still a unique character name wise as of 05/19/09.
Way back when, I actually thought hard about the name for hours naming my Paladin. I completely made the name up thinking about all kinds of combinations of names or names I knew that was unique. Made it up to match what I think my character was going to be like.
At the time I was thinking of Braveheart from the movie back then. So I took the last half of the name thinking of names. I remember seeing a great Knight movie a popular movie it was though just can't remember the name of it. But one the brave knight I remembered was actually named "Galo". I remember liking that name as well. So when I was thinking of names that was my thought process. So I then combined both names and actually liked it and thus my own character name was born.
Quite a few people all the time always ask me how I got my name or if I got it randomly by the WoW name generator or if I made it up. I really did make it up to reflect my character as a knightly Paladin.
So after all this time I'm still unique in the WoW Armory name wise. I can claim total original ownership of my character name. And since its recorded here on the blog for history, anyone else after today that show up in the WoW Amory if they do is a total impostor.
How original is your character name in the WoW Amory and how many clones are they?
