I spend a really really REALLY long time on names, too. For a while, I named a bunch of my alts after characters from Privateer Press' "Iron Kingdoms" universe, like my undead priest named Mortenebra. But then a friend of mine gave me a Latin-English dictionary for my birthday while I was studying Latin during college. The majority of my alts now have Latin-derived names, like my main alt Saluxis, who was originally a holy paladin before dual-specs (she's now holy/prot). Her name breaks down like this:salue/salve (to save) + lux (light) = "the saving light"I originally wrote her name as "Salluxis" to preserve the "sal" and "lux" but thought it looked silly and dreaded having everyone call her Sally. Nothing wrong with the name Sally, mind you-- but it's just not the nickname I had in mind for my plate-wearing, mace-wielding healer.
