Ok, want to know something that breaks story immersion for me?The mismatch of names. Genn is a nice, solid made-up fantasty name. But then they go and name the rest of his family Archibald, Tess, Mia, and Liam.It reminds me of a guy I played D&D with. His character's name was Michael (which mildly annoyed me, since there are no archangels in Greyhawk but ok whatever) but then he added, "Son of Talon and Whitemoon."WTF, you gotta at least TRY!

Goosfraba dude. The zillion popculture references don't annoy you but names do?

Just because you've never heard of it before, doesn't mean it's a made-up fantasy name. Genn happens to be a French male name. Jaina is Hebrew for 'God is gracious.' Varian is French for 'variable.' Oh, and my worgen druid, Tamson? Yeah, her name was a very popular girl's name in the 1850s. Feels pretty fantastic to me, though.
