What To Name Your Death Knight In The New 'World of Warcraft' Expansion

Two days until the release of the new "World of Warcraft" expansion:

When you create a character in a game, how do you choose a name?

Do you go with the name randomization button? Do you just make one up right when you create the character?

Or do you think about it days before the game comes out?

If you're the latter, you're not alone. While I was looking around on the official "World of Warcraft" forums, I noticed more than a few threads started by players trying to decide what to name their Death Knight.

The new Hero class is available to players who have existing level 55 characters; they're able to create a level 55 Death Knight from scratch. But if you're like most hardcore "WoW" players, you've got multiple characters already, and you may have exhausted ideas for monikers.

If you're stumped for names (I usually am, as someone with characters hastily dubbed "Tj," "Teejay," and "Droolia"), here are some good and bad suggestions, as chosen by the forum's users...

"GOOD" NAMES:

Astheneia

Arthas

Amaranthe

Chickenwangs

Chucknorris

Darknite

Deathbeast

Deathkong

Deathknight

Imothep

Mordhause

Necrodiemos

Nekronomikon

Nurgle

Rickastley

Ronniejamesdio

Shadeofpalin

Skeletorc

Soulbane

Soulreaver

Unholymoley

Yersinia

"BAD" NAMES:

Arthas (or any variation -- ArthasX, Xarthasx, Arthasss, Arrthas, Arrtthas)

Bubbles

Canowhoopass

Chucknorris

Classeveryonewillrerollto

Darth___

Deathknight (or anything with Death or Knight in the name)

Deathnight

Dethnite

Fluffy

Pallyreroll

Ineedcoffee

Sephiroth (or any variation -- Xsephirothx, Sephiiroth, Sephhiroth, Sepphhiirrootthh)

Sirsmokesalot

Sunshine

Anything from fantasy fiction or religion (Death, Lord, Bane, Caine, Kane, Lucifer, Blood, Rune, Shade, Shadow, Night, Walker, Grim)

***

So what are you going to name your Death Knight? Will your monikers be inspired by pop culture icons, metal bands, other languages, anything Tolkien or your own name?
