How to Find a Good Name for Your Character Class?

A character’s class is one of the biggest parts of their identity, something that came along during their life and stuck with them from then on, whether the person is a soldier in an army, a druid protecting the forest, or a cleric serving the commoners.

It defines what the character does, how they act in certain situations and provides insight into the knowledge and the abilities they possess. Some classes are more likely to come from certain lifestyles, and this too can help with the naming process.

Combining a class with a race in a way one would not expect can immediately ask us to provide the reasons behind it. These questions and answers then allow us to create a background story on the fly, which in turn allows us to create a better name.

Good Character Class Names

The planned class of the character can also serve as a guide for the naming ideas. Their abilities, what they can do, and the very nature of such a person can all be used to come up with an appropriate name for the role you plan them to have.

Class is one of the main things that define a character, and as such tells us what they know, what they have done, and what they might do while providing welcome insight into who they are. The right name will set the tone you want to present and may immediately hint at what kind of a personality they might have. Think about the class the character is, how you can incorporate it into the name, what makes the most sense considering the purpose of the character, and think of a name worthy of the unknown but surely exciting future they will set out to meet.
