You can also pull from celtic names. Nords are a hybrid of norse & celtic lifestyles. Many of their designs are celtic in origin.  Our Tree Knot can actually be seen in many elder scrolls games including skyrim and oblivion.

I really hope we are able to use special letters like Eth (Ð, ð), Thorn (Þþ) and Ø/ø.  I know in Guild Wars we were able to use Æ and other accent letters but not the ones I mentioned.

I'm trying to remember the online game where I used special characters...  It seemed like a good idea at first, but then I remember how difficult it was for friends to send me a /tell or invite me into a group.  They weren't able to type out my name.

Aha!  It was SWTOR.  Thank you! Thank you Dirkdaring!

I mean, thank you for providing the link to the Norse names.  My parents were from Norway.  It's always nice to have a handful of Norse names at your disposal, especially with TESO OTW.. OMG!

Most games these days allow you to right-click invite anyway.  There was an official announcement recently that you will be allowed apostrophe, dashes and other characters up to a maximum of three in a name, but not sure whether Eth and Thorn were included on that list.  Considering how close the Nord resemble the Norse culture, I think they should be included.

I thought it said you'd be allowed 4 special characters within a name Elth?  Spaces included as "special characters"  Perhaps I was wrong, I'll look around.

If I ever do get to Roleplay in this game, I'm going to make the manliest female Nord and name her, "Helga Steelfork"

 

She'll also be a master chef.

It would be nice to get Ø/ø, I'd finally be able to spell my name right =p

If you meet yourself on the testing track, don't make eye contact. Lab boys tell me that'll wipe out time. Entirely.

I despise special characters. You have to keep an alt key list just to hope to figure it out, because ALT 1234 can create the same character as ALT 4156, but you have to type the right one or it will send it to someone else. It is an annoyance, BUT it is better than having L33tB@Y running around or Drizzt125679038457693...

Apparently my mom named me the top most popular name for that year in Denmark, think I need a chat with her about originality, then again I couldn't even come up with a new name for our dog, so it's still the same as what the breeder called him.

If I play as a Nord I will use my own name Isolt   but I intend to play first as a Saxhleel because I DO live in the Swamp.  So my first name is Lacaiman-who-gathers because mostly, mostly I would  like to gather plants and grasses and make potions. My 2nd name is Coaxoch-das which means servant of the Flower Serpent.  Coaxoch is Aztec  and the das means servant of in Sanskrit,  because of the Hist.  I do not have my third name yet , nor my tribe.  I belong to the Ravenguard Guild.  So I know this is about Nord names   but Saxhleel are under the Nord Jarl   and also in Ebonhart Pact

I am looking for a small group of characters ( think 10 to 20 ) that want to create a surname that we all go by,  something that sounds close to the fantasy style, might be celtic, but will be a common theme for us to use, 

Example 

      My male dark elf templar might be named  Justine Tyler ,  my nord DragonKnight would be Darin Tyler,  my Breton Mage might be name Brian Tyler,  and so on. 

 

If you are interested if finding a common surname with me that we can use to create a sort of family within the game that would be lovely. Hit me up on chat here or email me directly. The more the merrier.....

 

thanks

XXX

Unfortunately  Eth (Ð, ð), Thorn (Þþ) and Ø/ø are not available, which is a shame.

Nord - Buliwyf Hamalson

Imperial - Scipio Dominitus

 

Haven't decided on classes for either though I am sure my Imp will most likely be a DK Tanker.

Not required Garyc, but from what I saw on the beta weekend it's not like GW2 either.  So the first names are going to run out quick unless you have something unique.
