As World of Warcraft Classic enters its eagerly awaited Season of Discovery, players around the globe are preparing to embark on new adventures, face unprecedented challenges, and create legends that will echo through the annals of Azeroth. A vital part of this preparatory phase is the creation of a character name — a decision that not only defines your identity in the realm but also reflects your personal style, aspirations, and the legacy you aim to build.

While there’s plenty of other preparation to do — some of us are already spending way too long theorycrafting in the Talent Calculator — there is arguably no more important task than coming up with a name for your character. So, in this guide, we’re going to delve into the art and strategy of choosing the perfect name. Both seasoned veterans and newcomers alike can benefit from this in-depth designation deep dive, as there’s always more to learn when it comes to mastering monikers.

The process of naming is akin to laying the foundation stone of your character’s journey. It’s about finding a balance between a name that embodies the essence of your character’s story and one that resonates with the grandeur of Azeroth’s lore. You want your name to align with your characters goals and aspirations, but also reflect the true nature of the character.

Who… am I?

In this context, we ought to find ourselves gravitating towards names that encapsulate both simplicity and depth. A name should impress. It should inspire your fellow players to say “Yes” when you ask to join their party. It should say “This is a name that will echo down the labyrinthine halls of history, from Azeroth to Outland!”

So, with all that in mind, here are the top 5 names to consider for your character, each reflecting a unique aspect of the WoW ethos:

  1. Thex
  2. Thex (but with an accent)
  3. Thex (with a sense of surprise and excitement, like “Thex!”)
  4. Thex (in a deep, mysterious whisper)
  5. Thex (just Thex, again)

In choosing your character’s name, remember that it’s the first step in crafting their identity and shaping their destiny in the World of Warcraft. Whether you opt for the simplicity of ‘Thex’ or its more elaborate variations, each name holds the potential to become synonymous with valor, adventure, and the timeless bond shared by the WoW community.

As we embark on this new chapter in WoW Classic, let your character’s name be a testament to their journey, a beacon that guides them through the trials and triumphs that await in the Season of Discovery. Let it be Thex.
