My best name was (Sir) Sparhawk (paladin). Due to a lack of imagination I stole the name from David Eddings.
My worst name was Velvet (short-lived thief). Name also stolen from David eddings. My other worst name was Arwen (fighter) stolen from Tolkien. The very memory of that character makes me shudder (despite the fact that she was my only character to finish BG1 and I'm now writing a story about her).

I've got a few names running around. Without doubt, the worst/funniest would have to have been a mage called "Bob". he didn't last long.
The name attached to the best character was "Equadior". he was a mage in BG1, and I finished the entire game travelling solo with him.
At the moment, i've got two main characters: He'ret is a conjuror (half-elf), and Ashnach Du'Oberet is a Dwarven Battlerager.

This is my "maiden voyage" through the Baldur's Gate series, so all of my character names come from PnP AD&D games.

Gramluk Ironfist - Dwarven fighter.
Zachary Thorrson - Human Cleric of Odin. Through an incredible series of events from overly generous DM's, Zachary came to believe he was the "Chosen of Odin". He was a nice guy, but was only slightly less annoying than Anomen.
Keporith Quickfingers - Halfling Thief.

Dirk - Dwarven fighter specialized in daggers.
Gatlin - Quickling specialized in darts. (thought up by my college roommate, Scott P.)

My most descriptive names ever were:
Skrag - Half-ogre fighter (Wolverine fans will understand this name).
Anthony Brawn - An alien played in a sci-fi RPG. He was a cross between a tiger and a human - and was known as "Tony, the Tiger".
Robert Plant - A vegetative alien life form played in a very early PC-based RPG (the name of which escapes me).

With the exception of Robert and Tony, ALL of my character names are originals. And I never use the same name twice.

Hm, all my male chars are named Vangorn (no, I didn´t steal it from the Lord of the rings but from a Fighting Fantasy Solo RP book, but maybe the authors borrowed it at JRR Tolkien). My female chars are normally named Dana...

Most commonly I use Talamir. He's USUALLY a Paldin, but being as how Pally's have to be lawful good, and I want to be neut (for Jaheira), I made him a fighter this time 'round.

Telfarne, my barb name, has always seemed rather retarded. NTL, it is a set name in my writings, and until I have the willpower to sit for an hour or more to think up something better, that remains as my barb/berserker name.

If you've ever seen Talamir or Telfarne somewhere, and know where, please tell me. They are characters in writings of mine, and I do not wish to take names from something else (nor do I wish them to be "taken" from me).
