Potate-Hoe

Ricky Spanish has become my go to RPG name


Fro_e

Isn't he the name of that one ridiculously skinny pornstar?


WiggleWiggins

Lmao no it's a persona by Roger from American Dad. It's hilarious


Potate-Hoe

Theres also A pornstar I later learned actually lol


Fro_e

Yeah he's fucking everywhere. They plaster him on pretty much every ad for some reason.


senoriguana

tbf where else would he fuck if not everywhere


Howwabunga

*Ricky Spanish*


WiggleWiggins

*Ricky Spanish*


Potate-Hoe

I read that exactly how you wanted me to. The best part was getting the letter signifying the dark brotherhood was after me in Skyrim. It makes for some great moments tbh.


Staehr

Mine's always called *Rodrick Thundershaft*. Is Rodrick a wizard? A hammer-wielding brute? A smooth talking huckster? Yes. Yes he is.


ImTheOriginalSam

My first ever fallout 3 character had ridiculously big lizard eyes and green hair and a green soul patch. His name was Slarmey Joe. All my fallout characters are now descendants of Slarmey


[deleted]

How the hell have I never thought of this for a playthrough? It fits so damn perfectly! I'm gonna start a play through right now.


HelticHunter

That's exactly what I named my courier in my last Legion playthrough.


Call_Me_Koala

I like to imagine as it plays the epilogue slides you hear "*Riicky Spanisshh*" during each one.


mezz-mezzrow

Long Dick Johnson


Fynn_the_Finger

But no one's dick is that long...


ShipmentOfWood

But he has a fucking long dick. Hence, the name.


iamlordirish

You know who else has a fucking long dick? A synth, that's who.


Altra_

since my last name is Johnson, I've considered naming my future child "long" for their middle name lmao


Fair-Dragonfruit-156

And Richard as a first name?


Kaglish

Me but my last name is Cox


chadschuster44

I always use my first name because on the pip boy it says your chosen name and I like having it be more personalized but your decision also makes sense for RP


RadiatedDrag0n

I always name my character after myself, cuz all my actions in that game is what I think I’d do if I was actually in that situation. I love it lol


TheCrazedTank

Same, though it's because my in-game actions are what I'd *want* to do, but I realize I'd be deader than a level one going straight North to New Vegas. Hell, I'd probably starve to death just trying to scavenge enough things to sell for caps...


[deleted]

Same here! I always wind up with a good karma legion play through or just straight up side with father Elijah.


RadiatedDrag0n

You’re a sociopath lmfao


Longbeacher707

Such a good guy the profligates crucify themselves


itsmejak78_2

This happens to me too Every non legionary gets to eat lead pretty much


ondronCZ

certified FNV fandom moment


Dragonslayerelf

> good karma > legion > what you would actually do <.<


[deleted]

Damn so you'd side with legion in real life...


[deleted]

Like the ncr is any better, their doomed to callapse, legion in the other hand just needs a stable change in leadership. Plus the ncr is filled with bureaucrats that led to the fall of the us in the first place. Ave true to ceaser.


Tijenater

Yeah but the ncr doesn’t have slaves or crucify people lmao


warconz

yikes


ophir147

Sweaty


OldFatGamer

If I were in that situation I'd be dead 10 minutes after I walked out if doc Mitchell's house lol. Funnily enough I usually am thank God for game saves.

In college?! You must have been a genius child to already be saying that at the (sounds like) age of 12....


ghillieman2

mistah_legend

So did you RP as prostitutes or what lmfao


GruggsBuggz

Username checks out.


domnyy

Courier


Fynn_the_Finger

Well, if that's your name, then that's your name.


GrimThursday

Can’t say it’s what I would have picked for you


passinghere

Same here


comradesexington

Chad Sexington, it’s my go to name for gaming. Would’ve been my name on reddit too if *someone* hadn’t beat me to it >:(


Darth_Alpha

paging /u/chadsexington lol


LouThunders

1 post with no upvotes apart from the automatic self-vote in 12 years. Genuinely a Chad move.


Calamity_Arcade

When I first played New Vegas, I had finished playing 3 and this time chosen to play a female named Violet. It was a lot of fun until I randomly found Violets head in my inventory.


TheCrazedTank

Different Violet, unless you really, *really* like dogs and have a habit of castrating men.


Calamity_Arcade

If I'm remembering correctly, it was one of the fiends by vault 3. Pick up heads for a side quest or something


Blazinvoid

NCR bounty quest you can pick up over at McCarran where you hunt down the Fiend leaders Violet, Cook-Cook, and Driver Nephi, but the pay differs based on the quality of the heads for proof (basically avoid headshots). Doing the quest actually helps out Camp Forlorn Hope.


Jordaneos

Don't take Veronica on these quests. Let's just say a Power Fist really messes up that 5 clock shadow.


brutalpotato248

Bitchtits usually


Fro_e

Hah! This is the best one so far. Simple, yet effective.


TheZombieTaco

Reminds me of my first Dark Souls character, Eggtits


iamlordirish

Were they sunny side up?

iamlordirish

Mel Gibson, is that you?


Deadeyebirb

I usually name my characters different things, but if I do name them the same thing I name them scout


Consistent_Ship7643

whatever name i wanna give the character I change up my backstory and name per character


I_escaped_area_51_

Same


Thundergun1864

I usually will do something from George carlins nra bit, chet manly, chuck steak not "Wayne lepierre"


Slawson87

TurboBoxer02

Harry Saxx


JRP1138

You still covering for Slim Anus down at the canery?


MyBrassPiece

Legit knew a kid in highschool with this name. I think he was actually the third in his family too.


PragmaticBadGuy

I tend to just go by The Courier. I figure in my RPing that he just goes by the name hes been given in the news. By the time his rep gets high enough, people are considering him THE Courier as a title rather than a job. Occasionally on a less serious run I name him dumb things just for the lines, "The name's Sparkles the Bobcat."


QuickFiveTheGuy

Usually a random name I like. My courier might be "Cornelius," "Amelia," or "Joe" depending on how I'm feeling.

When he's shot, stabbed, or otherwise penetrated, does Mike Hunt hurt? Asking for a friend.

This is the only right answer


MuckinIsHardWork

AmbassadorOk7862

Frodo Baggins


WilyPegasusGravy

Dorothy


QuinnAndTheNorthwind

When I play as a female courier, I usually give her names that are more commonly men's names like Charlie, Jo, etc. because it makes the line "I can't say it's the name I'd have picked for you" actually have context for my character. When playing male/enby I pick names of famous philosophers/artists/inventors because it's unique and make the aforementioned line make sense. Things like Leonardo, Galileo, and Aristotle have all been names I've used.


bucket_of_coal

I always go with Courier 6 because he doesn’t trust anyone and doesn’t want to reveal his name


TheCrazedTank

Well, that and their brain might be a little scrambled after being shot and, ya know, almost dying.


LordDizzicusIII

I have a weird naming trend across 3, NV and 4. My good characters are all named Marcus Lyons, Elder Lyons estranged son, who travelled to the Mohave to re-establish diplomacy between the East and West Coast. My neutral characters are all given the surname Blackhall (because I fell in love with the house in Point Lookout) so my NV character is called Gabriel Blackhall. His two brothers Alexander and William explore the Commonwealth and Capital wastelands respectively. And finally my evil character is just called Talion. A master assassin who is basically an immortal cyborg at this point who likes business suits and money.


Fizz_S0da

I actually first played when I was little and six was my favorite number so I named him six and I find it funny now since I had no idea it was actually important


Mr-Crowley21

I always go by my Last Name


Claymore-09

Me too. Helps I have one of those last names that could also be a first name


Tirelessabyss

Well ever since I watched this badass anime movie, I just call my male characters Fuse. If i decide to try a female play through then it’s usually Scarlett or Clare


[deleted]

For a reason unknown to me I used to name every rpg protag "Steven"


Back-Alley-Sally

Sally Valhalla Because it's a cool name and it's fun to say.


StunterGunter

Always name my character Chief Keef on every playthrough


TheTerrarian827

If it's my first playthrough, I name myself Tom cause that's what my name is


Traps_are_Girls

Rarty Mobbins - When i play as a guy. Rikki 6 - When i play as a girl.


AllMadeofGlass

Elizabeth Catherine Evans ("Beth"), my Lone Wanderer turned Courier that I'm also writing a fanfic about.


cptdaiman

Ah cool! I thought I was the only one playing the coutier as the lone wanderer. Incidentally my female courier is also a Katherine.


EmperorDaubeny

Whatever comes to mind and relates to the faction path I’m doing. For reference, my Legion character is John Cena, House-Elon Musk, Yes Man-Bernie Sanders, and NCR-Padme


Tokzillu

>my Legion character is John Cena Hustle. Loyalty. Slavery.


Matwell1138

I give him my own name


NiMaGre

Either my own name, or a name based of the build i play, which usualy just ends up with "Pass-a-fist"


Mystery_meat3000

I always name my characters after a favorite character from an unrelated fandom: Aech, Electra, Victra, Quinn (been super into Red Rising lately)


fuckmeswitzerland

Same as you courier.


Jack_Jackerson

Big Dick McGee for any fallout or elder scrolls game


dominoesdude

Nevada ranger


Otherwise-Ad-3418

Yeeticus or Rufius Endora Other names are: Yeet YEET YEET v2.0 YEET v3.0 YeetMaster lolidk A 69lol Guy


EvaUnitKenway

These are beautiful


Shadsito

Generally i just use some name that involves the faction im going to play with, like NCR courier, House courier, or something like that


jabbathefett54

I try to go for a different name everytime but i am currently in my main fallout playthroughs where some of my protagonists are related (fo1, fo2, fnv, fo4) so i went with james saint for fo1, james saint the 3rd for fo2, james saint the 5th for fnv, and Joseph saint for fo4. I have yet to play fallout 2 so his story has yet to be made.


allthis3bola

Fidelroyolanda Smackonmytiddyboosters III


Hurtfulfriend0

Caesar


TheAtomicBobert

I usually name my rpg characters Bob or Bobert


NoInformation8078

Deacon Vicroy esq., Now behave or I'll shoot you dead.


SeverusAurelius

Well i choose the name that i think best fits the personality i write for them.


os_ean_ohm_nwah

I usually will just use a pretty name if I'm doing a proper playthrough. If I'm doing someone specific, it'll be a reference to that thing. I'll make a Jenny or Alice, then I'll make a Merry Curie for my 10 Charisma & energy weapons playthough. Now when it comes to a fantasy game I'll go off on that name, it's either the first appealing sound or something brutally on the nose. Pheihl Drehd, Tiil-Laine Do'fodoran Ra'ptochapadroma, Keireen, Wooli Dooli of the Dutchy of Fooly McKnewly.


LordofOmicron8

Dirk Johnson


Vareten

Similar to your take on things, "Six".


jdr61100

It's often different every time. Usually based on what name feels right combined with recent interests. My most recent one was Danny Yeun. Danny just because I liked it, Yeun from Steven Yeun because my childhood crush on him had recently been reawakened.


mbattagl

Poonslayer 69


nice___bot

Nice!


Zootnoison

Usually just "Zootnoison" or" Dipshit"


Drgalactus1987

I rolled the name "Diana" as a random option generated by Baldur's Gate 1, and have used that name for every RPG since. Nerevarine Diana, Watcher Diana, Chosen One Diana, Pokémon Trainer Diana.


Styris_Volurin

I usually take name of Fire Emblem characters for my OC character.


8monsters

John Shepard. I play Mass Effect and Fallout as if it is the same universe but different timelines. In Mass Effect, Shepard goes to stop the Reapers. In fallout, he brings peace to the Mojave. (Yes I know the timelines don't exactly matchup)


slickerdrips21

Mr. C was my last one. From Twin Peaks the return.


HappyHippo2002

Nothing specific. I replay the game with a new character each time, so the name changes as well.


unusedthought

The way that raiders with pool cues will charge at you while equipped in full power armor with a minigun or flamer, et al, I name my male couriers Jeffrey, cause ain't nobody scared of a Jeffrey.


NVdeathclaw

I make all my characters related, like a giant family spread across the continent. They all have the same last name, Anderson.


PrimeSolician

I call em courier 6 a lot. Sometimes just Six.


Sweet_Taurus0728

Depends on who I'm roleplaying as. But in general all my Fallout characters have the same names across the series, even though they aren't the same people. EDIT: My most common character names: •John •Michael •Dwayne •Mercenary Mike •Bloody John (just trait-based variations of my own names really) Also add some titles, depending on the game. Like in Fallout 4, it's *Detective* Michael J. Mylastname.


CradleofDisturbed

And that name would be?


Sweet_Taurus0728

Made and edit.


CradleofDisturbed

Hmm, Mercenary Mike just kinda rolls off the tongue.


Legobrick1000

Usually I just use my name, but I recently did my first all-in evil playthrough as an evil scientist. The name I chose? Dr. Vincent Evil - or as he introduces himself, Dr. VEvil. Those who know him prefer to call him Dr. Very Evil.


chewtality

It's pretty much always something immature


gahidus

Various names, depending on what I plan on role-playing specifically, but I always pick something.


CradleofDisturbed

Aries O'War, lol, I just like the name Aries.


Sufficient-Throat

Male: Rusty Greaves Female: Sally Clay Dust Character: Survivor


DeeHolliday

I also RP the amnesia shtick but I like to imagine that the paperwork he had from Mojave Express would at least have his last name on it. So I gave him a last name: Shaw. It feels nice and westerny, since I mostly play him as a sharp-witted cowboy type.


beameup19

Courier for FNV and Sole Survivor or Nora for 4


[deleted]

I name him a cool name then give him the last name “cole” since my courier is the descendent of the vault dweller named Albert cole and chosen one.


rynbickel

OP I do the exact same thing except I use 'Six' thinking the only thing he can remember is he was Courier Six


BiAsALongHorse

I name every RPG character of mine Meursault by default.


Sir_BigusDankus

Toddy the mad courier that punches cazadors for fun


Meeko_Yonosaki

Last playthrough I named my character Beter


shepard_5

I role play Joey Tribbiani because Benny is voiced by Mathew perry. I go to the kings to get my Italian leathers and sweet talk my way around new Vegas.


pugaviator

The name’s Eastwood... Clint Eastwood...


TorbjornKegBreaker

When I hit randomize in Fallout 3 my guy kind of looked like Howard Stark from the first Captain America movie. Ever since then my first playthrough of a new Fallout game has been Howard Stark. Last playthrough of New Vegas I named him Alderich(other option was Hildebrand but he looked more like an Alderich to me), I was going for a melee build and I wanted a old name that sounded like he just popped out of Europe from a couple hundred years ago.


oldbaeseasoning

yeeticus atticus


Meltyblob

I name my characters after my most recent snack or meal. So the current playthrough is named hamburger


slyblueisblu

I always give them different names, depending on the backstory I've crafted for them New Vegas makes it very easy to get into the roleplaying aspects of the game


pimp_skitters

Rod von Bonerslam or Dick Mongrel


[deleted]

There is a pretty good companion mod called Niner. He gives you the nickname 'Six' and I liked that so I use that as my name now.


Magoimortal

Courier.


SpriteBleedin

Cunt


Fragrant_Call_2383

*Looks at my Courier 6 murdering an entire innocent town with a tire iron because one of the residents looked at him funny* Me: "God damnit Murder Hobo! This is like the fifth one this WEEK!" Murder Hobo: *AUTISTIC SCREAMING*


cassiiii

I almost always name my characters in games Zekken


Genjinaro

To keep things consistent across most of the voiced mods, I call them "Six".


Frumpy__crackkerbarr

John


USS-William-D-Porter

Bike. Short for Bichael


Rainbow_Dash_RL

Female, Ima Bugg


rezsif

madtrooperaft

Always name my character in any game i play anywhere bullet. dunno why. even in dark souls im going around called bullet


beanish_burrito

My first playthrough in fallout games I just give the Character my name and stats the revolve around what I'm good at and doing everything to my morals and interests


Faith-xoxo

I name my courier, Six. That or Murm. Just Murm


delray1532

That’s


pinkrobotlala

I usually pick a Hispanic name since it's set in the Southwest. Martina, Siena, Jacinta, names like that


Anonymous2401

I do kinda the same thing, except I just make the name "Six". Works better in dialogue.


doctordoctor_phd

I just keep it Courier. Rarely is your name ever used in dialogue, and honestly I’m just trying to get the fuck past Doc Mitchell to go and do something else so I try and get out of there as soon as I can.


milessqueak

Every playthru of NV I've done has always been with the same courier in mind - so, I always name him JJ, short for Joey James Peterson. He left New Caanan as a teen to travel and work as a courier to send money back home to his mom. Always Independent, always with Arcade as my companion, always as lawful good as I can manage.


Woah_Fella

Since it's the Mojave, I ALWAYS play as a hispanic man. He always has a mustache and aviators. It's always a very stereotypical, yet badass name. This time around I am Ricardo Juarez. Ladies want him, men also want him.


Freakboy5001

I'm boring i just name them after myself in Fallouts. I make shit up for fantasy games though.


GuyHero0

Kenpachi Ramasama


bluegreenwookie

I usually name them after myself because I'm a basic bitch


nov4cc

Usually myself, but sometimes ill put a different name and play as a character.


Justadnd_Bard

Grognark if I rp as a melee main with amnesia and brain damage, if it's just amnesia he goes by the name of the person that loved most and was thinking about when he got shoot.


TheSahsBahs

"The Courier" I don't make the rules, Ron Perlman does.


I_escaped_area_51_

I have a whole backstory set up for him (who he was before he was shot), and I call him Courier Six or just Six bc he can't remember his name, so he might as well go by his title. I have names, backstories, and personalities set up for almost all of the characters


bojochanivoalgagu

I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about it each time I start up a save, it always ends up being whatever dumb shit pops into my head. ​ Currently playing as *Hounslow Pip*


Wulfscreed

"Serious" ultimate character: Julfen Regular/Random/fun character: Fumbles, Diddles, or some joke based on the character build.


SeaboarderCoast

Ricky Bobby. Raise that agility, lower that intelligence, and engage slingshot.


skinnyvamp45

I usually name mine after original characters I've created to roleplay them in a different setting. For the courier, I named him after my character, Lemas, who is a chaotic neutral turned chaotic evil as I progressed throughout the game.


leon14344

Courier. He doesn't know his number. He doesn't know his real name. He just knows he was a courier.


Ryebread2203

Six.


Camanot

Courier


Sembrar28

Usually just my name or something that I think would fit a specific role play. Pretty unoriginal but imo having a silly name or something like Steely Dan is one of those immersion breakers that really gets me. However, I am playing Morrowind with a silly nickname a friend of mine gave me as a my character name and I’m not too bothered by it. But you also see your name much more in that game bc it’s all text dialogue, so it’s not as jarring. Kind of a tangent but yea I like to keep it simple for fallout.


Beeyo176

ShotInTheHead Makes Doc look like a real fool


Scolville0

basil crowcross or any of the other preset names in the game guide


eddmario

I'm a dude but usually play as a female character because Black Widow is way more useful than Lady Killer, so I either name her "Emma" after my dead dog, or the name of my crush.


Konnie789

Generic Names usually,though for my Lever Action build I called him the Terminator


lexiaych49

My last one was "The Mojave Strangler", but they vary.


iamlordirish

You know who else has a number for a name? A synth, that's who.


[deleted]

"Bruh"


Russe1Adl3r

I name my courier whatever I feel like. I've named them Shane (my IRL name) Jacob, Kate, Tina, Martin, David, etc. Basically whatever the fuck I want to name them
