So I finally think up a story for this. Now I just have to write it. But I do need help. Namely, with names. I'm terrible at coming up with Romulan names, and I need a slew of them, both male and female, including one for the lass who will become my main Romulan character in game. Any and all ideas welcomed!

Just posted the biography of my Romulan character. The character itself was first conceived by me in 2003 when I joined a PBeM sim. Later on I used her when running my own PBeM sim in Bravofleet.

Back in my simming days my character was a Romulan raised by humans, and serving in Starfleet. However, I decided I will go KDF, so I had to add in an interesting twist to facilitate her break with Starfleet.

I hope you all like it. I prefer to write my character's biographies in 3rd person, so it's a bit different from all the other ones I saw posted so far. ;-)

No direct ideas, but I do know a place that can help you: http://exonoma.com/

It's basically a name generation site - contains randomly generated names from just about every race in the most popular sci-fi franchises. They don't have too many Romulan Names, but they do have some--I got the name of the Character for my entry from this site!!

And yes, they do provide pairs of first/last names, but you don't need to stick with a provided pair--you can mix and match, if you want.

I hope this site helps you.

Also, nice biography, Hyperion!!

I see names in there that I can use. Thanks. I'll try and get my story written up this week.

You're welcome.

I basically recommend Exonoma if you're having problems finding a name for ANY race--be it from Star Trek, Star Wars, Mass Effect, or any other well-known Sci-Fi Race.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Also, what did you think of my entry?

Here's the Romulan name generator I use - it's based on Diane Duane's Rihannsu novels, which the game also seems to like.

Out of curiosity, what did you think of my entry?

I like it. You wove your character's background into the main story in a cool way. If I had to venture a guess about mister Erde... Section 31?

Yep!!

Veleen's going to be allying with the Federation, so I felt having her off-world contact be S31 would be fairly appropriate.

I'm thinking I might give her a Federation Ship, too. Her primary ship will still be a Warbird--thinking I'll go for a Mogai--but I think giving her a Fed Ship as a secondary would be a pretty good idea.
