Someone should start using Cantus's names. (Or was that Tim?)

Kulmeis or Duamune, anyone?

Edit:
Let's say you want a female human warlock, as the most awesome warlocks are wont to be. Which name would you prefer, of those I've listed below?
  • Agyria (based on the disease argyria)
  • Eurynia (don't remember where this one was taken from)
  • Seraziel or other Diablo 3 Death Maiden names

I'm also open to other suggestions.

Double post!

A former friend of mine liked to name his psycho female characters as Narcissa.

Considering all the things that crawl, fly and creep on Argent Dawn, I'm almost 100% sure that Narcissa must be taken.

I never have a problem with getting unique names. Start swapping around letters but in a tasteful manner.

Narcinissia?

You can even go exotic. Narcindokht.
Dokht is persian for daughter.

The first one doesn't make much sense, I mean how would you turn people blue faced and implying you are blue faced... well it can be taken in several ways.

Seraziel has my vote, it sounds cool and the reference is a nice bonus.

I'd also suggest the Greek goddess of discord and chaos, Eris, but I doubt that is available.

Eris is always taken.

Anyways, I agree with you. I also prefer Seraziel and would've preferred another disease that makes more sense.

Two of my Draenei have Eastern European names, inspired by the likes of Exarch Menelaos, Exarch Admetius, and Messenger Hermesius, etc. My Draenei Paladin is named Brutus, and my Draenei Mage is named Arcadius.

While not entirely consistent with this naming pattern, I also have a Draenei priest named Marjut, which is Finnish, just because I liked that name for Draenei.

Adding aa to a name helps in making it "draenic".
Like my DK, Couraan.

Well, I have Sighylde saved up, but I think I'll use that one for a Vrykul. I think I've neglected Gaelic names, however.

My Wildhammer is Seastace Highcrest.

(combination of "Eustace" and "Seamus" - so it's pronounced shay-stus)

I like you. You get +100 cool points.

You do not know the awesome sauce of Gisella Hornslager? She is awesome beyond belief.

Not only is she a bounty hunter, and thus the only name for every single female dwarf hunter I have ever made... except on the main server I use and I'm hoping to take the name back when the big non-active name clean up proceeds. Currently she is Jaegerbrew, but she was also a fashionista, had a human lackey named Woodrow, and traveled in a caravan that was filled with all sort of wonderful things and knew what she wanted and would do whatever it took to get it.

Basically is summed up with this quote. "Gisella Hornslager doesn't bow, scrape, or take orders, especially from somebody whose eyebrows meet in the middle. Now you can either change your tone with me or turn around and trot back to town."

My go to name for Dwarf-Name is Garcridhe (=Welsh/Gaelic/Irish - don't remember- for Giantheart) Hammerstorm.

Female is difficult. Would name her Moria, for funzies, even though that name is probably taken everywhere.

Hmm, Vivica reminds me... I could go with diseases.

(No idea why a name that sounds so alive reminded me. )

Heh, I can give you some nice sounding and fitting Slavic names. You can then confuse various eastern nationals , I find that delightfully hipster for some reason.

Apsida (Viper) it's really unique and hipsterish, it means viper but also a nasty kind of woman, poisonous, mean
Senka (Shadow)
Vestica (Witch)
Rana (Wound)
Sida (AIDS) if you feel like trolling

I reckon all of these will be taken so some exotic letters will be called for.
