  • Name my game character

    First, please don't run off if you don't play WoW. I play on a server where you don't have to sound like a LoTR nerd. ;) Cultural references are okay. I want to hear opinions from players of other games. I see the toon I'm naming as being similar to the combat medics of BF2 and TF2.

    Those of you playing TF2 may recall this Penny Arcade cartoon (NSFW language):

    This is the attitude hostiles have towards priests in WoW. ;)

    Background: I've got a priest on a PvP server and I'm tired of getting ganked. Enough that I haven't played that character in a very long time. But I miss playing the priest class, and don't want to start over from scratch. So I want to move him to a PvE server where I play actively. Unfortunately, I already have a character there with the same name, so I need to rename my priest as part of the move.

    The name must be 12 characters, no spaces, first capitalized, no non-US accents.

    I'm particularly interested in opinions from medical practitioneers, and particularly from nurses. (My mom's a retired RN, and went back to school when I was a teen when my dad died to learn nursing to support my brothers and I. So this is sort of an homage to her, as well.)

    The only famous nurses that come to mind are Florence Nightengale, Margaret (Hot Lips) Houlilhan of M*A*S*H, and Cloris Leachman's Nurse Diesel of Mel Brooks' High Anxiety. There's also Nurse Ratched of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. None of these really "grab" me. Plus, they're all ladies and my priest is male.

        I have no interest in WoW, but I am a nurse, so I'll throw this in the hat: St. Camillus de Lellis - The alpha of male nursing. He was also sainted, if that tells you anything.

        St. Camillus de Lellis (1550-1614) founded the Nursing Order of Ministers of the sick. Men of this order cared for the dying, people stricken with the plague, and alcoholics.

        I've got others if you want them, but this sounded the most fitting for WoW.

              I came in here to make a suggestion but honestly I love Ferris's idea.

                I looked him up:

                http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camillus_de_Lellis

                That's promising; no one's grabbed that name yet on my server/realm, Eldre'Thalas:

                    Thanks for all the help. I pulled the trigger last night and my character is now under his new name:
