I kind of like it actually. Its a less-than-glorious name, and kinda echos with bane's episode with his dad. Besides, try calling bane Dessel Boy and see what happens.

I liked the book, how a great Dark Lord can rise from a life of misery and become a person who can decide the fate of the Universe, awesome

Well, a name is just that, a name. Thats why most Sith have their Darth <insert evil-sounding name here> title . Vader, Sidious, Tyranus as examples.

The name Dessel was the Bane of his existence.

I also liked his name, and I also think the book was excellent. I found him far more interesting than Anakin/Vader. He was a person who really had a reason to turn to the darkside.

Dessel, as far as Bane is concerned is just another person who was slain and forgotten. Dessel was a guy who thought what he lived was a slightly below par level. A republic private stabbed him outside the bar that night. Dessel died and Bane was born.

Dessel is far better than "Squinquargesimus." I'd say it's lucky his name is so ordinary.

I don't think there is anything wrong with how they wrote Bane. Sure Dessel doesn't sound like the name of a dreaded Sith Lord, but that is because it isn't. Darth Bane is the name of a great Sith Lord.

Hey, John Wayne's real name was Marion. Does that make him any less awesome? Nope.

And neither should Dessel make Bane less awesome.

Dessel sounds cool!
It kind of reminds me of Kessel.
My dad made a kotor character called darth bane and without knowing there was a real bane.
But Dessel does not really bother me at all

I really don't have a problem with the name. Sounds cool
