When it comes to Elden Ring character names from the story itself, there are a few rules they go by, where certain names start with the word God, while other two types of names start with either the letter “R” or with the letter “M”, depending on who it is.

We can name our characters in many different ways, and one of them would certainly be to add a title before the name itself, or an epithet after it, one that can further provide some insight into their nature and their personality as a whole.

The many actions and deeds of such characters seem to echo with more significance, adding value to their names which are in turn more noticeable and far more easily remembered, names like Elyon The Fake King, and Erina The Old.

While the story characters have their names created in a certain way, following a certain set of rules, we have the luxury to choose our own path. Our suggestion of using titles and epithets is not the only way but it should help you in coming up with a name worthy of your character’s ambitions. Think of where were they born, what kind of a person have they become, what have they learned, and what are they best known for, and think of a name worthy of all the adventures the character will have.
