Sun Drake-kin Druid Character
Any suggestions for a sun or possibly wood-based name?

I have already used the Persian names Cyrus ("sun") and Merhdad ("gift from the sun"), and I want to avoid using god names such as Helios.

Hello everybody,

I just joined this community :) I've always been interested in names... Unfortunately, for me this has become a problem! Because of the fact that I'm always searching new names and comparing them and their meanings etc, I have a lot of favourite names. What's the problem, you may say? The problem is, that I'm gonna change my own name!
I'm not english nor I speak english, but I decided (at least this!) that I'm gonna pick an english name. Problem is, I think most of my non-english speaking friends may have problems pronouncing any name I'd choose, so I was wondering about names' pronounciation.
As, as I said, I don't speak english, I can't just read the names out and see how they sound. I need to find a combination of two names that not only fits with my last name, but even can be well pronounced by italian people.

So, getting to the point... I'm searching for a website or something that has audio clips of english names. Any file type, any accent, anything. I've obviously had something figured out from movies and such but it doesn't help much with uncommon names.

Thanks a lot for any infos!

As a role-player, I feel the most difficult task in creating anything for a game is giving it a name. With that being said, I am having a great deal of difficulty pinning down a name for this pack for Vampire: the Masquerade. Any suggestions?

Additionally, any suggestions for character names would be appareciated. I am attempting to avoid using the names of famous historical and mythological knights, but I am looking for names reflective of the nature of the characters.

Hey everyone!
I was wondering if you could help me find names that are girls' names and boys' names alike. There have to be some, right?
Just throw anything in the discussion you can think of, even if you don't like it I might :)
Thanks!

No Habla Espanol
Hoi there,

I just ordered WWE: Know Your Role and I am working on some ideas for Wrestlers. With that in mind, I was wonderin' if there are anyone here who know enough Spanish to translate "The Jaguar Knight" for me.

Small update
Nesrine - a French-by-way-of-Tunesia female first name. Sounds interestingly exotic.

Just to get the ball rolling.
Donald Gong-Collins

That last name is just beautiful.

Reinhardt Grosslein

Last name again. In orders to understand why this is good, you need to know a little something about German. The German word gross means "big or large". The -lein is a diminutive, indicating something is small.
Well, I find it amusing.
