Minipost: Fun Name/Title Combinations


When Fabulor was first created, I knew right away that there could be only one title for him: the Love Fool. And that was the first title he earned (this was before titles were account-wide), and I've used it on him ever since. I mean, how perfect is that? What could be better than Fabulor the Love Fool?

Oh. What's that? Patch 5.3 is introducing a new battleground, Deepwind Gorge, and if you get all the achievements for it you get the title Gorgeous?!

Okay. Gorgeous Fabulor might just be the new winner. Damn, looks like I'm going to be doing a lot of Deepwind Gorge for the next while.

Anyway, it got me thinking about name/title combinations. There are some great titles, rare ones, impressive ones, but I always appreciate clever pairings. Before account-wide titles, some of those took a lot of effort for a witty joke! It's a little easier now that titles are shared, but it's still always nice to run across one that makes you chuckle.

Of course, you have to start with one of the first noteworthy combinations, the one that seemed to make people realize the potential of titles:


But personally, the first awesome combo I saw was an old guildie of mine, who didn't plan it at all - he had the name before titles were introduced, and when the Argent Tourney was implemented and he realized what he could do, he jumped on the opportunity.


Orithea transferred her warlock to TTGF in Cataclysm, with a great name:


I always enjoy running into an Avatar fan in-game:


And you know, sometimes name/title combos are hilarious because of UNSUITABLE they are, such as:


There's no shortage of great combos, but other than Fabulor, I don't really go with the themed names too often. (Hell, Morgion doesn't even USE a title.) Most of my characters are created without much thought of what title or guild tag they might use.

Most...but not all. I do, after all, have this little guy rolled up on Drenden:

    Most of my combinations are based either on who earned them (Zulfon the Insane, Fudo of the Four Winds) or ones that just sound fitting (I haven't found a better title for Haloraka than Blackwing's Bane - it just sounds fun to say together - although the fact that I'll be getting Brawler with the patch on Tuesday might sway me).

    But back when I was briefly Alliance, I transferred my DK to Khaz Modan and absolutely COULD NOT think of a name for this now-male-dwarf DK. I was totally stumped. On a whim I typed in the title I had most recently received and hit "OK."

    And that's how I spent a year in the Alliance as Ambassador Ambassador.

    Though I cannot recall precisely, dicking around in Stormwind, I once noticed a draenei named Pilot of the Exodar.

    His guild was .

    I'm surprised Zuko has the Firelord title. Don't you have to kill Heroic Ragnoros for that? I figured Zuko would be more of a PvP player. You know, trying to get his honor and all.

    Just food for thought.

    Back during Wrath, I used to see someone running around as "Sarahpalinn, Champion of the Frozen Wastes."

    I'd like their armory, but they've changed their title since then (sadly.)
