Good thread to start. I've seen alot ot the usual "Handle" names thrown on Dust 514 (LuvMudda_64, Lick_6JPants, etc), but I've seen a few really cool names from people who seem to be trying to get in the EVE frame of thinking: like Kisara Urchan, or Paolo Hukama, ...you know, REAL sounding NAMES.
My Primary is named Celesta Aungm.
Below is my secondary character, but is not used much.

HEY, just an important follow-up on this thread:
I hope you cool players have all seen the new LEGAL NOTICE from CCP regarding "Naming" by players.
I read up a little about the PC EVE Online game, and how players took the game seriously and consider their characters "living" personas that they are responsible for developing and shaping. So, I thought hard about that when it came time to "create a character name" for my Dust 514 characters. I knew I wanted REAL sounding first and last names, not player-Handle or Chatroom-ID. Names someone could actually live an 80-year life with. And not celebrity persona names either---too phoney sounding.
So for me, names like Jim Bond, Elpis Vesley, and LuvMuver56_Deathlock just wouldn't work for me in the Dust universe.
"We need help at Objective B!!" "Capture the regeneration unit before they get here, Hatemelongtime936_roach".....( What in the name of -- ???!!!)
Please remember, as you may have noticed by now, DUST 514 ain't your typical First Person Shooter game... In fact it's not like any FPS I've ever played in my life. It's linked INTERNATIONALLY, is persistent (plannning to go on for another 10 years or so?), so the developers have a lot to risk if legal suits arise against them.
Some of us MIGHT want to reconsider the wicked names we've chosen for our Dust characters. Maybe CCP will allow a respec of Names if we turn in our dicey name and ask for the chance to "ReName".
