    My names are generally puns. Horrible, terrible, stinky puns.

    Billy Monday, a cleric
    Esther Adoctorinthehouse
    Carrie Mebacktooldvirginia
    Herb Zandspices
    Heironymous Bash
    Jaime Kangaroodownsport
    Juan Moe Time
    Hugh Jampton

    And others too groan worthy to mention

    My parties tend to be 4f/2m as far as gender goes.

    As for the names, I usually try to pick something that fits either the class or the race of the character.
    For humans, I usually use a lot of Latin (both real latin and pig latin lol) or modify normal names to sound more fantasy-like. For Elves I go with nature-oriented names. Half-Elves would be somewhere in between those two. Half-Orcs have barbaric-sounding names, as if their names were grunts or unintelligible by humans. Dwarves tend to have iron/stone/battle related names, or something inspired by LOTR. Gnomes and Halflings I, uh... I only ever made ONE halfling character, and no gnomes at all.
    I also get inspiration from a lot of fantasy name generators online. I don't think I ever actually used a name from one, but I've modified them to suit my tastes.

    Here's my current BG party:

    Klera Viridae, a female Half-Elf Cleric/Ranger
    Ragash-Tûr, a female Half-Orc Barbarian
    Faelis Swiftfoot, a female Halfling Shadowdancer
    Drakophis, a male Human Dragon Disciple
    Inyanga, a female Human Shaman
    Ozmul Battlecry, a male Dwarf Dwarven Defender

    You'll never see me play a game with Dave the Barbarian or Jack the Necromancer lol.

    I normally do 3/3 and give them the name for the class. So a fighter would be called fighter.

    Yes, they’re Wes Newzealand’s cousin.

    Should I mention those electrifying twins, Anne Ode and Cath Ode? And their protector, Ray Tube?
    Doris Opencomeonin?
