Character Names That Stick With You

Quite a number of friends have come up with memorable PC names (though the characters themselves may not be as memorable). The fact that I still remember them means that they've got something special that found hooks in psyche for some reason.

Here are just a few:
  • Chastity Ironthighs - D&D, Arduin
  • Johnny Zen - Rifts
  • PAD (Power Armored Dude) - Champions
  • BDM (Bladed Death Machine) - Champions
  • Gambucks Rhotiart - Star Wars
  • Braumeister - Champions
  • Johnny Surprise - Traveller
  • The Giggling Phantom - Champions
  • Xerran Hazat - Fading Suns
  • Hellguard Trellane - Call of Cthulhu  
What character's names have stayed with you for some unfathomable reason?


  1. Reghar Hammerfall - a buddy of mine made this D&D dwarf PC about 20 years ago. In fact, he used this name for several dwarves.

    B.J. Bombardier - my post-apocalyptic wasteland warrior back in high school. Wore a "Have a nice day." smiley face t-shirt, snow-pattern camo pants, and a shoulder cannon with TruSight targeting system.

  2. In the case of Reghar, I can understand why he stuck with you given the recycling of the name! Did he use suffixes like Reghar Hammerfall XVII?

    B.J. Bombardier sounds nasty! And violent.

  3. Wasn't there a "Shadra the Castrator" in Arduin?

  4. That sounds like something I might have blocked from memory.


That's my side of things. Let me know what you think, my friend.
