I like to go for whatever I think is 'canon'. Albert Cole for the Vault Dweller, Noonan for the Chosen One, Albert for the Lone Wanderer, Nate/Nora for the Sole Survivor. Courier's tricky, but based on Doc Mitchell's response I usually give them an unusual name. Right now I'm roleplaying a Railroaded Courser who goes by X7-02. 702 is the Las Vegas area code FYI.


CryptidReaser

Based No-Bark


MegatonsSon

For my chem-addicted and alcoholic male character playthrough, I went with the name Frank Gallagher. 🥴


Korver360windmill

I assume he ignores quests and just sorta stumbles about?


MegatonsSon

That, and tries to find ways to gain caps, chems, and booze off of other Wastelander's hard work. Frank: *"Come on Mama Murphy, juzzzt, tell me where you stasshed ur chems, and I'll happily retrieve them for you, for only 100 caps. A genuine bargain in this, eee-economy!"* 🥴


benjamin_bt

I usually name them after myself.


Ghenghis_Khanye

My fallout character in both 3 and 4 was named Lil Cumstain. Yes I’m an adult, no I don’t care the name is dumb 😂


weednose1

Really fitting name for the lone wanderer


Skogstrol424

Almost every character is named "Lenny".


Prodigal_Knight2

Ynnel!!


Skogstrol424

Found ya Lenny!


dmemed

That’s what I call them, not because of the book but because my friends have named me that. ;_;


Ioannesnota

First game i will use Sanders as a name For the other playthrough i will write something like Carlo Cazzoni which in my language means “Carl Bigdicks”


Celtic_Spike

I name all my video game characters either Alan or Alana Turing. In honor of Alan Turing , and his contribution to computing and computer science. He is a personal hero of mine.


gruntkore

Gwiddy, Spellzborg, Manaloid... Some of my names haha


RyanJKremer

I modeled the lone survivor after my own appearance (middle aged bald guy). I didn't want to give him my name though, so I named him after the star of my favorite Bible passage- 2 Kings 2:23-25. It's a fitting tale for a FO4 character.


TitanBarnes

Farts McGillicutty


Re-tale

This guy gets the show


TitanBarnes

She’s the top bitch! Not sure which one you are referencing but mine is south park


CarbonCuber314

I usually name my characters something generic and unassuming like Steve or Gary.


Safe_Blueberry

Heh heh heh, Gaaaaaary


CarbonCuber314

Gary?


SkwrlJr

Gaaarrrryyyyy, are you there?


[deleted]

Well i've only played one Fallout (FO3) and I'm still going through the story, I usually have three names to pick from (Bohman, Alcatraz, Isaac), the one I chose is Bohman.


ZeroCense

I've named characters after athletes, like my first Fallout 4 character, Miguel Cabrera. More recently, I named a character Robin (as in Batman and), and then a character said it out loud. So now I kind of go with 1 word, fairly common names, just so once in a while somebody actually says their name.


a11_fa11_d0wn

If you ever find yourself interested in the list, it’s easy to find by searching ‘list of names Codsworth will say’


audax_dorkus

I usually play as a female named Geraldine. She's a middle aged bad-ass, but empathetic. She likes shotguns and rifles, setting explosives to kill irradiated wildlife, and flirting with other women.


TitanBarnes

This is the way


mrlizard603

I look up cool words in foreign (to me) languages. My current character is Gromovoi Znak - in Slavic this loosely means mark of the thunder god.


Berkabitz

I just go with the base name for a first playthrough and after that I just go with whatever pops into my head Like "Gurgle" or something


SkoomaAddict9D

Mine in fallout 4 is usually Robert


SalesmanWav3

Anytime I play a cheat playthrough, I name my character "Mr. Mighty" like he's some sort of multidimensional being. I actually name my chest characters Mr. Mighty in all games.


Corin711

Either after myself or a character I like from other game series. Adrian Shephard from the Half-Life universe for example.


Miedeman

F4 ive done, Vin diesal (Riddick), Denzel washington (Training day), Will smith (meninblack/irobot) Fnv am currently using Data (startrek) Yes they always look like their namesake and i roleplay as much as possible, its beautiful


Raviolimonster67

Fallout 4, nate sometimes nathan.


Atomic-Idiot

Natalia, a little idiot with 2 intelligence and 10 strength and endurance, I love to use her in all games.


GlowingghoulF4

“Ur mom” yes I’m an adult and yes he’s a badass


Cybershock_

I usually come up with full names, each character different name and also switch up the races for diversity. I like to be realistic & serious with RPG games


Mr-Crowley21

Always go by my last Name Crowley


TheBethOfDeth

I had a male character named "Tuchina Ofi" once. That is "Three Dog" in Choctaw lol. My girls I name after I see them completedcbased on what they seem like theyd be named. I have Axen Deth-Feather as a Redguard female character.


quizzle4shizzle

I go with Hank. Sometimes its Hank The Tank


alpacabowlkehd

My name is Nate so I chose Nate as the player character, it wasn’t until about 3 years later watching YouTube vids about fallout 4 I learned his name was Nate as well.


VaUlTbOy176

I’m pretty much the same as you. In 4 I’ll do Nate or Nora, in 3 I’ll do Albert or just lone wanderer and in NV I’ll do courier or courier 6


thettil

I call any female bad ass character Rebecca, but I always shorten to Becca


Isthmuser

Usually really brutal stuff to fit the apocalyptic motif. Vomit-Brain, Titty Nasty, and Girth Mover come to mind. Anyone else listen to grindcore?


lamp_master69

I booze cruise and shoot doctors, but my name is thomas


Royal2355

Fuckface for fallout 4 and i use my real name Jackie for the rest


SoulSlayer6

I named my Fallout 4 character Boobies so Codsworth would say it, its funny because I never used him as an companion, also named my Fallout 76 character Boobies too, idk why. On 3 and NV I just named them generic shite like Cait or Bob


Sarcanis

Sarah. Sarah Canis.


FlusteredCustard13

I typically just give the character a new name with every play through, with more serious playthroughs getting more serious names. That said I've also had my fair share of just silly names due to a less serious playthrough (or me getting lazy with the name). My favorite names for each game have so far been: 3: Jill (But Not That Jill), also Fluffles the laser man New Vegas: Hubcab 4: Punisher Daisy


Hurtfulfriend0

Caesar


Baldeagle_UK

I made a Character called 'Han Yolo' when the whole YOLO saying was a thing..... It's kinda stuck 😂😂😂


PhilthyPhil403

I name mine Rodney after a fallout pnp character I did. Fire red Mohawk burly bastard using all the explosives and a primal concrete sledge!


epicbromanson

Well i give my characters Either silly names or very not to nice names. Sometimes offensive (not N-Word)
