Worlde of Legends™ provides the following name examples for each of the playable races and culutures to help make it easier for you to imagine a name for your new WoL™ Adventurer. You, of course, do not have to follow these examples and may choose any name you wish (as long as it is okay with your GameMaster). Scroll down and tap the title bars for the names examples.

    It may also be helpful to have a better understanding of LANGUAGE in the Worlde of Kaendor™ (learn how to say all those accented vowels) by visiting our Kaendor Langauge Guide. If you are looking for other Adventurer building help, visit our Adventurer Building Guide.
