Wow! Page 1.... Do you think Blizz will ever introduce last names to characters so as to open up more potential naming combinations?

that would be pretty cool, back when Everquest was the in thing and they allwoed surnames, that wqas pretty cool, maybe it could be like in place of a title.

They've stated more than once that's something they're interested in doing. I expect they will, no idea when though. It will probably come at us out of the blue one day.

Everyone can be Jenkins. What more do you need?

@AldarionManastorm. There needs to be a Manastorm last name available for all gnome mages.I actually have a toon named "Thrillhouse" sitting ready to go if they ever introduce that last name as an achievement.

well if they were to follow my line of thinking then you would get one surname per realm and all of your toons would share that surname. Say you chose Bloggs as your realm surname.. your mage would be called Magic Bloggs, your Pally would be called Holy Bloggs, your Rogue would be caled Stabby Bloggs etc. od for things like the Jenkins title, it would simply be hyphenated. your mage would be called Magic Jenkins-Bloggs as an example (damn my made up names REALLY suck...)

I have always wanted to put the surname "McWinklestein" onto a dwarf char. Then I would have Drinky McWinklestein :D

@Atlanna1- Then, for us roleplayers, all our toons have to be family members? Even our characters of other races? I hate that idea even more than the lack of last names. (Then again, most people I know that really need last names use a mod like MyRoleplay.)

no only for the one faction... you'd get a different name for the oppposing one. it just seemed like a simpler solution from Blizz's POV. of course individual character last names would work too.

@atlanna1: I liked the idea until I came up with "Magic Champion of the Frozen Wastes-Bloggs" lol. There seems to be two types of titles currently, one that acts more of a nickname/surname, and one that is an actual title (i.e. Jenkins & Hand of A'dal, respectively). There are also the titles that fall before a name, such as Elder or any of the PvP rankings. I'm totally in favor of last names. Maybe titles would need a little work so they would play nicely together.:D
