Sure you can! I don't mind people taking or borrowing these names, especially after the trouble that i've had trying to come up with some.

Anyway, I've (almost) settled on a name. I've got it down to three choices:

Darth Venquis, Darth A'den and Darth Teroch

I'm swaying towards Teroch at the moment, and may use A'den for his apprentice.

What would you say about
Darth Groza? It's Polish word for horror/terror and in my opinion fits someone who 'brings worlds to their knees'

Maybe Venquis as a vanquisher to kill or help the two Sith?

Darth Venquis sounds very fitting for a sith lord
You should take that

They're all some really great suggestions, but I finally settled on one of my Mandalorian names - Teroch. I like it because it is very similar in both spelling and saying to 'terror' - which is escatly what a Sith Lord should inspire in his foes.

Thanks for all your help guys, and feel free to pinch any if you like 'em

*feels dumb* I totally didn't see that you had chosen the name before I replied xD

But either way I hope you have fun with your evil little Sith man (I'll pretend that didn't sound wrong T.T) and good luck with your campaign! ^^

First I planned on using Darth Audax for my fic, but then i realised that I already had a Sith name. I think I'm going to name my main characters vessel that instead.

You can sometimes even take an obscure word used in the English language, and use it - if the meaning is acceptable. For example, a few years ago, long before TSL came around, I had written a villain named Darth Scion (note the spelling difference), meaning heir. It fit the character, and sounded cool. Then TSL came out, and I looked unoriginal. -_-

Latin works really well, especially if their meaning is dark. But, technically, anyword that feels dark or mysterious works. You could also make up just a random word or name. For instance on Latin: example: Darth Nemo. "Nemo" meaning nobody or no man. Or, Darth Teriscar, for a random name. Or {God Forbid}, Darth Bob, which is by all means ridiculous unless you're writing a comedy.

True, it was a nice thought. Well, that's one Latin word you wouldn't want to use then.

Help with a name.

Ok, so I'm righting a new story, and the main characters name is Clera. How, I need a good name for her master, and after thirty hard minutes of thinking, I got nothing. I cant continue without a name, please help.


The requirements are:
  • Needs to be a Female.
  • No weird Twilek type name. (Ayala, Janoon, etc.)
  • Needs to be peaceful, but still have an, 'authority type' ring to it.


Thanks

I find that this is an excellent place to get names from.

Sometimes, though, I'll use Google Translate to take a simple English word that suits the character and translate it into either an obscure language or a dead one, such as Latin. For example, in my latest RP, Scion of Darkness, I used the word Teacher and translated it into Latin - giving me Erus. I adapted it a little to make it sounds more like a name, and came out with Erussa.

Well, trying to fit your description, this could be difficult.

hmmmmmmmmm.............

Ahh, I think I might have couple names for an authorative but peaceful female Jedi\Sith Master.
I'm not sure you'll take this one because it might sound Twi-lekki so maybe not this one.

Casra, that is the first name for now. But wether or not it works is up to you.

Or Seva, that's an idea, so far I keep thinking random stuff. Well that's all for now.

OK, assuming you want a Sith lord name that sounds like a wookiees name, here's what I thought of:

Darth Hroghar
Darth Razhor
Darth Kryyhterra
Darth Coytacha
Darth Ferrhaalas

Thanks Endorena. I'll use it as a base word, I think.
