 I used the family the name Deepriver, which I use for many online games, just because I live close to the Hudson River.  Many names I choose through the blending of names that are found in astronomy with spelling consistent with names of angels.  That's how I came up with Andromedriel.

I use japanese WWII warships for familyname, I prefer Yukikaze, and im fine with adding one "i" somewhere to get it.
For character name my first choice is Hyouka, for many reasons. Including fact that i love icecream (esp. in winter)
If  it is taken, or i make more than one character i go with various japenese names for female characters (i really like them).
For males i dont have any rules, i just go with the general feeling created character gives me.

Lots of neat names and stories behind them in the thread :3

My character/forum name came to me simple enough, Rosa is just another version of Rose which is my irl middle name, I've used some version of that in every game I've played for a long while now. xD I have other names for alts that I'm hoping aren't taken by the time I can make them so keeping those hush-hush for now :3

Family name, Lostsong. I've always enjoyed last names with 'song' in them, originally using Moonsong and other variations over the years. However, when I got with my husband I also took up his screen-last name of Verloren. Since we can't share that here I just took the meaning of the name, lost, and put song with it :P

That's easy. For family name or username in general, most of my names are NEVER taken because they're always unique. That's also another reason why I'm never in a rush to "reserve" my names and take part in events or buy expensive game luxuries just for that. Just me though.

My naming convention is quite easy to follow. The name would be created in this way. The first word would be a code that your family want to represent. You can take the codes or symbols from the Code of Xia(Chinese), Code of Knight Chivalry(European), or the Bushido code(Japanese), i.e, bravery, honor,etc. The second word would be a type of action or desire I wish for such as fierce, healing, etc. The 3rd would be a word of nature...rain, thunder, etc.

Ex. Let's say you represent righteousness. So I chose the Chinese word for that and it's Yi. Second part would be my action or desire I want..let's say I want to heal others-let's go with German for heilen-google translate!! Third would be a word of some element cause by nature...so rain-the English? Add that up with some changing of the word structure to how you like it would sound and I went with, Yiheilinrin. I kept the Yi for righteousness but I changed the heilen to heilin and rain to rin. EASY!!

[Code/Symbol][Action,Desire,Wish][Natural Cause by Nature]

My family name, Sunn, is a nickname I had from my first MMO. I was Sunnflower, because Sunflower was taken :P and everyone called me Sunn. 

My first reserved character name is Erri, which is meant to mean "kind/caring" in Dothraki. I browsed some generators and found a GoT one, and as a fan I figured I'd go with it. Have found a lot of Dothraki names with meaning that I like :D Usually i just put some letters together and go with it, but I might stick with this for a while.

I just used "Zubei" as my Family name. It's the name I have used for years. To be honest, I should probably change it, though. It was the name of the character of an account that was given to me after the person quit. I played the character for years and just kept it. Usually when I come up with character names, they are based off various mythologies. Gods, Goddesses, Demons, ect...

Family name came from my main character from Guild Wars 2. Don't exactly remember how I got it though, I believe I looked up a sort of "Dragonslayer name generator" and went from there. My Valkyrie's name is sort of a derivative of a character from the Fate series.

My family name means Wife in Chinese and my character name is Bonnie. My boyfriend is also playing so you can guess what his family name and in game name is. (It's Clyde haha.)

I learned about the duo (Bonnie and Clyde) back in middle school and a bit in high school and I really liked them a lot! Bonus because they were a couple who committed crimes which I thought was really cool back then.

It's just Raph. Character name is Raphan. Inspired by Raphael from the Ninja Turtles, lol

Surprised I got it to be honest. Just started playing a few days ago.

Hi

I've had names that I used since Ultima Online, like Lily White but I couldn't get any name that I wanted in this game.

Even alternate spellings of everything I tried had been taken.

I finally ended up using an alternate spelling of the word "Song" from the character in Doctor Who, but the name River wasn't available either or any variation that I could come up with.

I even tried a number of Scottish names but they had all been used already.

So I finally used a variation of Lucy, the name of one of my dogs and also a animated character that I make short videos about.

Not very satisfying but by forcing you to have both the first and last name unique makes it very hard, I think that like other games I've played the family name should have been unique and let you use any first name that you want just like real life, there are a lot of Mikes out there.

By the way, I hate that they always display the name last name first so that doesn't even read correctly.

Mike

Um fsidebar is my family name, since I saw on 9gag once in the link it said "fsidebar" in the end, and I have just used it on steam ever since that, and pinkomega from filthyfrank and my other char "Plus" just because it was available.

Try just searching for random words on links or websites that sticks nice to the tounge and isn't really popular, and go for that, use family name maybe what your own last name is.

Hehehe... I took my family name from a character from a certain H-RPG.

 

"Fuoco" from a character named 'Serena Fuoco Le Brilliante de La Grazia'

My sorc is named Amigdala. Bloodborn fans recognize it immediately. It's a goddess and boss but also a part in the brain which causes the emotion of fear. So the black magic suites the image of fear i think.

The family name is Burgess. I think i've chosen it unconsciously. It is the name of Jesus Burgess which is a one Piece character but i remembered this only afterwards.

I did recognize it, but not immediately.For a moment I was like, why would you name yourself a part of a brain.
