Renaming my Sylvari to be more lore/racially correct

Recommended Posts

I would err away from lineage themed naming, as its a very generic elvish approch. As backwards as it sounds, sylvari surnames and titles are more funtional or aspersional in nature; with the historical significance being a side effect of the titles definition. Titles of feats are rare, but when taken are to draw attention to a specific response.

I've noticed this more with nightmare court as an intimidation tactic, though heroic sylvari may adopt a title given to them by others if it conveys an ideal they subscribe to. incorporating their wyld hunt is more likely for young sylvari.... but they share a cultural parallel with Norn in that title will evolve as their experiences and personalitys grow. Consider Scarlet changed her whole name with a new found purpose.

Do note that a name like this will appear as "Lerin Of Dusk." Sadly, we can't have the "of" be lowercase instead of capitalized. It's a minor quibble, but it's still something to consider.

You're right! But I kinda like it that way. Seems more... elegant? Or maybe I'm just used to it :)
