In WC3 their naming convention was dark word + edgy word or viceversa so the most probably is that they do.

They seem to adopt new surnames or rework their old ones, which is kind of common in Warcraft for other races too. Like Meryl Winterstorm in the comics changed his name to Felstorm when he became a warlock.

Two of the random nounverber names from War3 were used in Cataclysm as surnames for the new Demon Hunters, Feronas Sindweller and Telarius Voidstrider.

Obviously, some people will call their DH's a variant of Illidan, but how many will use variants of Prepared, Vanfelsing or even Maiev? Don't be shy, admit it!

Well, I was going to make a night elf Demon Hunter and name them Felflipper.

Kinda related questions:
  • Do satyr kidnap elves to bolster their numbers?
  • Could Illidan's satyr have done so, while his forces rampaged through the night elven coastal villages?
  • Could Illidan have spared some of the would-be satyr because he saw their DH potential?
  • Could said individuals hate demons and naga, for what they did to their families and neighbours, but start to respect or even adore Illidan because he save them? (Also, Durnholde Syndrome)

I am leaning towards using a satyr name, and I need a reason for using one, instead of a proper night elven name. It sounds a bit corny to me, but I have no idea what else to go with, besides making character someone who'd willingly consort with satyr.

The Black Temple had satyr, so the demon hunters already were allied to them. I don't think you need justification for why a demon hunter would willingly consort with satyr.

I don't think a villager turned into a demon against his will would be very loyal. The forests were filled with satyr anyway. I'm more interested on how he gathered all the NE demon hunters.

Well becoming a demon changes you.

Yeah, I know, but where's the motive to change your name? If you are a young elf who gets captured by satyr who rename you, that's one thing. You didn't choose that life, but you can't change it. It's the only name you remember. Willingly changing your name, to a satyr-sounding name, as an adult? What kind of Demon Hunter would do that?

Yeah, but if you're given the chance to fight demons by the one who saved your from getting turned into a satyr, wouldn't it be possible for loyalty towards that person to grow?

I also wonder where he got the night elven Demon Hunters. Forced conscription would be interesting, wouldn't it?

Well, Alandien was personally trained by Illidan, and Altruis willingly followed Illidan until he "lost focus." They were probably former pupils and pupils of pupils and so forth.

While it's less common to see a bunch of X's and Z's used for in-game night elves, technically speaking satyr are using "proper" night elf names. Xavius was already Xavius well before he became a satyr, after all.

If anything, satyr might just tend toward using "upper class" night elf names, as similar types of exotic letters and double-consonants tend to appear in naga and Highborne names as well.

So do you want a Satyr Demon Hunter, or?

And this is why I love coaxing posts out of you.

@Noitora: Nah, DH's have no tails.
