A good name in RuneScape is important. How else are you going to get famous? Sad thing is, if you disslike numbers (you should!) almost all epic usernames are taken. Here are some tips on choosing a great name:
1# – DON’T pick a name related to your skill
While many other websites suggest the opposite, I highly advise you to NOT pick a username thats related to any skills. The simple reason being that you can never train something else without looking silly.
“HerbMaster64” with 34 herbloring looks silly, its only cool when you got 99…
2# – Pick a scary name
Imagine the following scenario: Two players, exact same level, “Thenario” and “iWillPwnU”. Who would you rather attack? I’d go for Thenario.
3# – Try to not use numbers
Avoid numbers. If you have to, use l33t sp4ak. “Magebomb1234” to “M3geb0mb”.
4# – Use a variation of your name that is easy for you to remember but difficult for others to associate with your name.
Use your seldom spoken middle name, for example, and spell it backwards. (E.g. Marissa = Assiram)
5# – Name unavailbe? Try different languages!
E.g. Mage = Tovenaar, Towenaar, Magjistar, Magier, Mago, Maj, Mágus, Zintnieks, Ahli Sihir, Mar, Maga, Vrăjitor, Kúzelník, Vrač, Salamangkero, Kouzelník, Sihirbaz…. See how many variatons of one word?
6# – Pick up your favorite fantasy books
In LOTR there is like 250 pages full of names. There are a ton of great names there. Every good fantasy books has unique names!
7# – Find a name generator
But.. go a little more advanced, try “LOTR name generator”, “Elf name generator”.
8# – Done? Google or DuckDuckGo for the name to see if it’s unique.
Well, I hope these tips helped you. If you end up picking a cool name, please share it in the comments! See you online!
