    Hi everybody!

    I am looking for a book of names. I would like an edition which contains epic names like names for elves, orcs... you know what I mean. Something that is maybe published by blizzard...

    Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

    My son, Shadowkey Elventail Macmurphy, says they are massively overrated.

    Whatever names you use, make sure they have loads of apostrophes in them so they look original and authentic

    @Fatiguez Hahaha, I never had a problem of coming up with names for my WoW characters. The thing is that I would like to give such a book as a present to a special person of mine.

    @Fake_Blood Noooo that's not what it's about. It's about coming up with names for World of Warcraft... and I know how much that person does a research to pick a character's name I think giving him such a present would be really thoughtful.

    Unless the presentation ends with a blowjob just send the person a link to a Wikipedia page for the name Liam. It'll do.

    I found this, it might help, or it might just be shit

    BTW - I am now named Beetle Willownest

    If I use my own name it comes up with

    East Goblinstaff.
    "He brings riches and wealth. He lives where the Celts and the Norse people live. He can only be seen when the seeker holds a four-leafed clover. He wears sunrise orange and has gentle green wings like a butterfly."

    Not very Elfy though sorry.

    I would look specifically for guidebooks to series and movies for the shooting crews and writers. I've heared there are such things for Game of thrones, maybe for some other movie/series?

    I think we've discovered a gap in the market here. I might write the book myself and make a fortune!

    Pick something Icelandic. They have long history and cool characters.

    @Tonka That's not a bad idea actually. A Icelandic onomasticon.
