There are lots of names to chose from when you are naming your wizard.
I was thinking a lot about names this morning. So I breezed through the entry quiz (I always get myth! It's weird,) and looked at all of the names you could name your wizard.
Among the more common names like Katie, and John, there were a few that I found quite uncommon.
For the Gentlemen:
  • Belgrim
  • Dugan
  • Gilroy
  • Lail
  • Padric
For the Ladies:
  • Calamity
  • Darby
  • Keena
  • Llewella
  • Taryn
You don't often meet a Lail as your walking through the Commons!
Then there are the name combos you can get, I'm sure we've all met a Taylor Swift, or a Luke Skywalker (which was really cool and funny the first time I saw someone with that name, because I love Star Wars! But after the fourteenth billionth time, not so much,). But what about Richard LionHeart? You can have that name but I have never met a Richard LionHeart. Doesn't anybody love Robin Hood anymore?
I also wondered what the most popular names in Wizard101 were. I tried to count the repeating names in the Commons, but after the seventh person ported in and started running about, I gave up.
But I did check my friends list for repeats. Here they are:
  • 3 "John"s
  • 3 "Jack"s
  • 2 "Wolf"s
  • 2 "Cameron"s (they are very hard to tell a part because both of their last names start with "I"!)
  • 2 "Blaze"s
  • 2 "Jessica"s
  • 2 "Edward"s
I'm not really sure how well my friends list reflects the popularity of names in the game, but I did find it interesting.
This is all very trivial, but I find it really interesting. It's food for thought.
