# 1 Names and Naming
06-08-2011, 04:06 PM
Is there a website or a thread that aides with coming up with names for your character that are Star Trek based and/or based on the race you are playing?

Just do a google for a Star Trek name generator, (insert species name here) name generator. I am sure it will find something.

The game actually has this. If you choose an Andorian for example and randomly generate a name it'll be for the Andorian race.

^- Indeed.

Caitians give you very meow-y and purr-y names. Klingons very rough names. We worked rather hard on the name generator for the game. The same for ships and NPCs, too. The Holodoc that was a reward for example has the names of known scientists.

Really, thank you for saying that, I had no idea, they all just seemed random to me, so I assumed they were not based on anything.

Thanks for the replies.

Yeah, a lot of my characters were named by hitting the "random" button a bunch of times and picking three names (First, Middle, Last) from the list that resulted.

And in at least one case, where I had the exact same character on two crews, I used the first name from the first one generated and the last name from the other.

Actually I found the STO random extremely... random. (heh....)
Particularly for the Caitians, the options it gave me didn't follow Caitian language rules. Like giving a "M" beginning to an "aggressive" trait. That makes no sense, "M" is a sympathetic/ empathic character trait letter. bah.

I wish there were some sites that would give in-depth name help or options for characters. trying to figure out my Andorians is driving me completely insane >^<

you know you're bumping a year old thread, right?

Besides, I was not aware there were Caitian language rules.
