How to Find a Good Name for Your Pathfinder Character?

Ah, yes, a new character, a new beginning. For me personally, this is one of the most interesting parts of the game, where everything is unknown and full of potential, where the future starts, and an appropriate name certainly helps that cause.

With the purpose of the character in mind, we can think about who they are, what they like to do, and how do they go about daily life. This, in turn, helps us get a better picture of the character and narrow the types of names we might want to choose.

The personality of the character can also help choose a good name, where certain names can fit the character better, and while it depends on the type of the game, the name you choose will set the tone for what others can potentially expect from you.

Good Pathfinder Names

You can create a good name by taking the character’s personality and profession into account, where both can serve to guide you in the direction of a more fitting name.

Dhomdogit Battlebane

This dwarf is a veteran of a hundred battles and then some, where his old age doesn’t stop him from wreaking havoc on the battlefield. Loved by his friends and allies, and hated by the enemies, his reputation precedes him so much so that the rumors say a mighty orc leader has set his sights on claiming both his land and his life.

The Brotherhood of Storm always needed a brave warrior such as him, and this paladin always felt as if he found a place he truly belonged, a place among his brothers in arms, a place to call home. All this bliss is far away, however, as he’s currently standing across the leader of the barbarian invasion, about to go head to head against one of the mightiest fighters on the battlefield.

Whatever the truth might be, she is now the right hand of their rightful ruler.

As an heir to an elven king, his duties often forbid him from doing what he wants the most, exploration. The capital and the great forest around it provided much enjoyment during early years but after almost a century later he needs to experience something more exciting, and wanderlust seems to have struck hard without any sign of letting go any time soon.

There are many races to choose from, many personalities and professions that provide a completely new set of possibilities, and each of them is as equally mysterious and interesting as the one next to it. Whether the character plans to fight monsters, help those in need, win the hearts of the ladies in a King’s court, run a business in a prospering town, or simply travel the roads and see where they take them, a name you choose will be more memorable if it’s appropriate for the level of seriousness of the game, which may prove to be an extra source of fun for others as well. Whether it’s fame and glory, or fear and notoriety the character will go for, try to choose a name worth remembering, just like the heroic deeds they are about to do.
