What is your favourite alien name??
« on: October 29, 2011, 12:11:27 PM »
Hello folks

OK, this is a subject that needs feedback. You know. The typing stuff with that keyboard in front of you.

What is your favourite alien name. We're not talking species but character name. Give a little detail for those who might want to check it out. See examples below.

I've always been partial to Arthur C. Clarke's 'Childhood's End' character, the 'Overlord' Karellen.
For female names, it's a toss up between Chanur from CJ Cherryh's 'Chanur' book series or Chiana from 'Farscape'. Must be something about C.

Feedback, people.

Geoff

If you want one for favourite alien species name, then I'll run it as a separate topic.

Maybe this question would work better if you folk choose from different series.

Let's take something like Babylon 5. A lot of the character names are based on locations on Earth like Lennier but I like Delenn and G'Kar (who was nearly called something that phonetically would have sounded like Jack Rabbit).

Hello Andy

Nice choice. I also like a lot of the real names of the Legion Of Super-Heroes.

Jo Nah is a bit too obvious but the likes of Reep Daggle, Luornu Durgo, Irma Ardeen,  Salu Digby, Dirk Morgna, Tasmia Mallor and Tinya Wazzo are not only interesting but probably make good passwords as well.
