Hi all, I have a bit of an issue... I can't think of a name for my character :( I've been trying to think of one that would fit as soon as they announced the release date, got nothing.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm planning on making a Sylvari Thief (female)

Try this.  :)

Edit: Sylvari don't often use last names according to their lore.

A name doesn't sound as good if you don't make it up...
And are you looking for one word or two?
For one word names, latin is your best friend.

Silva, latin for Plant
Sapientia, latin for Wisdom

And here are some made up ones...
Shadia
Bladia
Vistia

I love my IA(s)

I'm naming my Sylvari after a nice-sounding plant Scientific name.  

Here is a BIG list of garden plants from Wikipedia:

Well if you trust this forum's lore section and the fact that most of the NPCs have irish/gaelic names I would definately go with something like... Idk actually...Robert?

Well, I remember somewhere someone fron A-Net saying the names of the sylvari were based off some gaelic names, so look around there. Somehow I figure Cu Chulainn is going to be taken xD

Most scientific names use 2 words. Sylvari's names have only 1 word. (cept for titles and such)
