    I take it your making a Charr. I think its a good name, but dont use a name that already exist in the lore like Pyre. Be original think of a good strong name a Charr would have.

    You don't asker others to help with a char name.
    It should be personal and something related to you.

    Tho I do understand It's not always easy finding a
    solide good name that's not already taken.

    Personally I like my names short. Like "Amarth", "Amon",
    "Taake" etc. But have taken 1 exception which is my IGN
    now in Aika; "Hammerfest".

    I did think about that. My first good name was Mystics and that was made by me.

    But for GW2 I want a good role playing name.

    And I've narrowed it down to two and now I really couldn't care which one I picked, but yet I can't make my mind up (if that makes any sense?)

    Dawn sounds a little bit better, it slips off your tongue, and I will be using the water attunement quite a bit, but (no sexism meant) it sounds a bit feminine?
    And since in my personal story I'll be blessed by Balthazar (God of War) they might clash.

    Pyre fits better with my story but it doesn't sound as catchy.

    Leaning toward Pyre more at the moment, but it changes on a daily basis lol.

    Well if it was me I wouldn't choose any of em.
    They have both been used by thousands of
    players and can't really relate any more to
    one person then to an other. But then again,
    that's just me lol..

    lol now you've got me thinking :x

    My names aren't really personal, they're more 'original'.

    And if I were to choose a personal name I would choose something to do with my characteristics.

    Mystics and Shadows kinda relate to my characteristics, but only some of the time.
    Acolyte would be another one.

    I really wish I was born in October since then I would be Scorpio, not Virgo. Virgo doesn't sound as catchy :/

    At the moment I'll change my name to Incendia (following your advice). Sounds a bit feminine (again, no sexism meant) but it rolls off the tongue. In Latin it means fire and it's a bit like me. At times it's nice and welcoming but occasionally it burns and hurts. HAHAHA how cheesy...

    Tbh they sound like names you pulled out of WoW wiki or random name generator lol so i kinda agree with Amarth, pick something cooler that you make up yourself.

    Incendia sounds much better.
    Never seen anyone use it before, so
    if I by any chance would see the same
    name in two different games. It would
    be a bigger possibility that those two
    characters were the same person.

    Which is also a good thing! Using ur own
    personal name people can actually remember
    you from other games. (It does happen!)
