    As a guideline, I never have a character without a race specific name, so I don't have an Argonian called Fred, or a Nord named J'arzart etc.

    I normally pic names from fiction, my username (Beran) was taken from Beranabus, a character in Darren Shan fiction. This makes it easier in my opinion.

    Use a Viking name, or a name from Norse mythology for a nord. The skyrim world is much the same as morse mythology. Look what elves were named

    That's where I got Baldr

    I named my Saxhleel (Argonian), Scar-Face. Because of these cool-looking scratch marks I put on his right cheek.

    All of my characters have been named after people from A Song of Ice and Fire. Rhaegar, Tyrek, and Renly are my three favorites.

    I named my character after Quanah Parker, the most intelligent and savage Indian Comanche Chief of all time. After reading Empire of the Summer Moon then playing Skyrim, I had no other choice.

    Khajiit = NineLives (cause well... cats have nine lives :confused:)
    Altmer = Artemia (a play off of Artemis, though it's ironic that she shuns weapon use)

    my current is called Nagilum, its a reference to a Star Trek Next Generation character who is to be honest an extremely nasty piece of work.

    generally my character dont really have anything to do with the game at hand or any specific influence, just whatever springs to mind at the time

    I got my elf name, Caelro, from here:

    http://www.angelfire.com/rpg2/vortexshadow/names.html

    I got ny nord name by googling scandivian names. Roman names for imperials. Celtic names for Bretons. At the uesp, there are lists of names for khajit and algonians (and others) that have been in previous elder scrolls games.

    My Orc is named Alkier. I don't recall where I got the name. I just remember sitting at the character creation screen trying to think of a name and it just kinda popped into my head.

    I was disappointed that the Skyrim Collector's Guide didn't have a list of name ideas. At least there's Tamriel Rebuilt to get name ideas from.

    I prefer to stick to race specific names too. When I make an argonian, I usually make "translated names" for them, like alot of the argonians who claim their black marsh name is impossible to pronounce. My breton has a french name like the bretons in oblivion, rather than celtic.
