This is a new setting with lots of different cultures, and I have no idea about the name I'll give to my Savannah human from Ixamitl Plains right now. This is the perfect game to implement one of the greatest inventions in the history of CRPGs.


Obsidian did it before with KotOR 2 and NWN 2. Make it happen Josh!

It's an idea that has been discussed before at lengths. It'd be a nice addition.

I would prefer something like Lord of Rings Online though, it gives you an idea of people's names in a description box "Common names..." etc. etc. I remember reading something about different names depending on Culture on the Official Wikia but I couldn't find it now. If you look around I'm sure you'll find it, and maybe even get some inspiration ;)

An idea of what the names are like would be good, even if they make references to real life.


Like from what I remember the Aedyr have Anglo-Saxon and Scottish names and the Vallians have Italian names, but I don't know about any of the others.
