How to Find a Good Name for a GW2 Character?

A good name should start with the chosen race in mind, as each has vast lore and history behind them, and having a fitting name serves to deepen the immersion, so we should all strive to create one that enhances the world we’re all eager to explore.

You can always modify any existing names, such as changing the first or the last name, adding a nickname, or perhaps even having a nickname only, where the real name is hidden and serves some secret the character is desperately trying to keep.

After choosing a race, and perhaps a profession as well, think about what will the character be, what kind of a personality will they have, and how they behave among friends and strangers, and use it all to guide you towards that perfect name you want.
