Do you rename your villagers?

[Post New]by Cultistmum on Aug 28, 11 1:25 PM
I found that the same names kept showing up, and at one point I had three kids running about all named Bong (hidden drug references? Surely not!). So I renamed them. I enjoyed it so much I have done it with all my tribes on all my VV games, and themed them; one lot are named after mythological characters, one are favourite authors, one tribe are wombled (names from the atlas) and one group are all from mystery stories. Does anyone else rename them? And do you change the epitaphs on their graves?

Yes, I usually always rename, though I try to keep it exotic sounding. The game issued the name Ginger to one of my females, so I kept that!

Wish we could pick their hair/eye colors and clothing too. One girl I wanted to select had on the same outfit as another girl I'd already chosen, so I rejected her just for that, silly huh? lol

LOL!

I rename them for the sake of having something that even sounds like a name!

on my last tribe, the theme was harry potter. now it will be greek gods and goddesses. and then it will be the names of my friends and family. i always put my favourite names on my favourite or prettier people.

OCD time ...yeah, I rename them to reflect what I'm going to have them specialize in. All my farmer names start with F. I make up names with the correct initial letter when I run out of "real" names.

Yes, I always rename them - going through the alphabet until they are all named.

I was changing their names, at least in the begging. Nothing specific, all the names were weird, non-existing, but nice to the ear.
After a while, I had so many new villagers at once, and so little inspiration, that I stopped, and rarely named a villager that gave me a good impression, or had a funny voice.
Could you actually change the epitaphs?!

To make it easier, you can always google baby names, and those websites usually have hundreds of names to choose from! :-)

I always choose Christian names, most of the time. If there is someone who already has a good name, then I keep it. It makes it easier to track them if you can remember them, rather than having names that you are not familiar with.

The first 4 games I renamed my villagers. I am going to try to keep the names that the game generates on this game...but I will probably break down and rename them...LOL! I love the idea of naming all the farmers with and F name...etc. I will probably give that a try!
