Breakfast Topic: Will your pandaren fit into your character naming convention?


Many veteran gamers (be they of the tabletop or computer variety) have long held their characters' names as sacred. Naming your character in a roleplaying game is a very important and special thing and should not be taken lightly. Even if you are to make a name to troll a thousand trolls, at least put the time, effort, and passion into your awful name to show your dedication and understanding of this sacred thing.

I've written about my naming conventions before, using the prefix Gen- or Genz- for most of my characters because of my own affinity for my middle name. Every character but two fit this mold and use some sort of variation on the theme. Thankfully, my pandaren monk easily fits into the Asian-themed culture.

The pandaren monk that I made at BlizzCon was named Genzji, and I liked it, so I'm happy to use the name come live. Will your pandaren characters fit within a predetermined and established naming convention? Or will you take this opportunity to break the character-naming mold?
