I agree SoF. For a character I made a while back, "Jackson" became "Jaxûn" and voilà! Instant Star Wars name. Very Happy

Coolness.
I think I read somewhere that Lucas does that on occasion too. Biggs was Bill or something like that.

IF you're looking for good names for certain species but just aren't that great at making something up that sounds like a certain species you should pick up a copy of Galactic Campaign Guide. In the back there are names for some common aliens like wookies, Duros, Zabrak...

I have to say I always have trouble coming up with names for my characters regardles of what I am playing. It's usually the hardest part of character creation.

In fact the scout pilot for the Empire was named Lt Mechas... I hadn't come up with a first name and Mechas is actually a Star Wars planet (It's the one that IG88 took over if you read the tales of the bounty hunters book)

He was still a cool character to play despite having no first name and working for the Empire

If you're having trouble, ask your group for help. Often times you can come up with something really cool, or just something kinda on the silly side.

How about P.I.T.A? He's a protocol droid I came up for an adventured I GMed who was rather obnoxious and really there to annoy the PCs. Name's an accronym for what his character was to be towards the PCs.

Try this! And hit the "Twi'lek" section. It's pretty good.

Loc,

You may want to get that link some where under the "Tools" forum so it doesn't get lost.
