It should do, but then my naming convention's pretty basic - it has to be or sound like an actual name, and it has to feel right for that race/class combination. I tend to trend toward Celtic and plants, with the occasional Asian name, which I suspect will be the case here.

Yeah, i use gaelic for quite a few of my toons when appropriate. I dont RP, but yeah for the most part they have to sound like names that fit the character (and sound at least a little badass). My NE rogue = Cyno = My handle for ~15+ years. My Draenei shammy = Tsyanis = Tibetan for fear, another old handle for when Cyno was unavalible. Hooman dk = Dubhlann. = Gaelic for ebon blade. Well, ebony blade. Well... negro blade, technically.Worgen huntard = Cascorrach = Mythological irish king who killed werewolves. Bank alt = Airh = Gaelic for gold. BE huntard = Daoine = gaelic for elf sorta.Goblin lock = Gandino = italian goblin creature from mythology. And i have my panda name all reserved. Chengdan = chinese for bear, very simple.

Hi native gaelic speaker here from Ireland and just wanted to correct some of your words!Óir is gold.Daoine means people.Dubhlann means black pool/lake and is the old old name for the capital of Ireland -Dublin, the modern Irish name is Baile Átha Cliath.Airh is now aire and means shepard but it can also be used as the verb 'to take care of' i.e i took care of my sick Worgen friend during the full moon = thug mé aire do mo tinn chara worgen nuair a bhí an geallach lán.Hope this clears stuff up for you :)
