100 Character Names from an Unexpected Source

I'm still very busy, but I feel I'm neglecting my duties as a blogmaster, so here's a little something to keep things rolling.

Anybody who's posted a comment or two (or three or one hundred) on a blogger.com-driven blog has had to contend with the "Visual Verification" security feature. Those of a gaming bent have more than likely noticed that often times these nonsensical words are strongly reminiscent of Gygax-era NPC/pregenerated-PC names. I certainly did. (Please tell me I'm not the only one...)

And I thought to myself: Somebody should collect a bunch of these and put them in a numbered list, so DM's can use them on-the-fly. That would be cool.

Well, I got tired of waiting for someone cool to do it. So, without further ado, here are 100 character names, culled from blogger.com's "Visual Verification" feature:

  2. LOL! See, I just needed to be a little more patient. I guess great minds think alike. :P

    You're still going to post these, right? I was thinking: this would be a cool weekly post - after all, one can never have too many random character names. Right?

  3. I started a stockpile of Captcha names about a month ago..but I have not been doing quite as much replying...but..hey..here I am..so here's yet another name.:D

    In all honesty, that's one of the things I like about Blogger. The letter groups at least make sensible words. Heck, the ones on some of those social networks hardly look like they're written in Klingon.

  4. @Spike Page - I'll admit, I didn't collect these by posting comments. I cheated: I kept refreshing another blogger's comments page and grabbing the words I thought looked like Gygaxian names until I had 100 of them. :P If I were to have waited until I'd posted enough comments, I'd have been waiting for quite some time...

    I agree with your assessment of other word verification techniques. Although some of them might work as Gaelic names, what with all the consonants lumped together and such. (That's just a joke, Lili, if you happen to be reading this. Remember: I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing near you. :P)
