Need some creative thoughts for a new character!

I been out the game since, well, since before Ossus. I am bored, need a break from my hobbies I picked up since leaving the game and feel like maybe making a brand new character to start fresh.

I am going to create a brand new character, and need your help to determine a great name for my new character. Can be any sort of name, of any type. If I like a name, I will use it!

Also, if you are really bored, you can even go further and add some other details like gender, body size, etc. If I see anything that really stands out to me I will do it!

I mostly PVP, so imagine I will probably take my new character into WZs as early as I can.



TL;DR

In a nutshell, if someone has a creative idea for a character and/or name I will use their name and/or character idea and use a very broad range of outfits I have at my disposal to make the character as close to what you have come up with, visually, anyway. Can be any gender, race, class, alignment, etc.

Well, since you haven't done ossus, maybe you could name your toon "Pesticide Free". Or "Pest Aside'Free". Or like that.

I also was thinking about a take on the old "body by bowflex" commercials, and pick a type-4 character and name them "body by jelly donut" or something.

How about "HIckory Dickory Death" (which is also an alternate title of an Agatha Christy book, btw. - I totally stole it from there.)

Or a scoundrel called "It Wasn't Me". (That's probably been done already.)

Elizabeth George has a mystery novel called "A Suitable Vengeance" - which might be good for a vengeance jugg? Although, I doubt many people would know (or care ) where that came from.

P.S. Sorry - I only do names really. I don't go much further on the character theme road.

Oh! Since you said PvP, you could do a PT and name them "Don't Shoot. I Surrender"

Daemia Dawntreader, a lithe, energetic female Chiss and master spy for the empire, is currently embedded deep within enemy territory, and to disguise herself, runs around body-altered as a BT4 male tiger-striped twilek Jedi, even so far as wielding a light saber.

Recently informed her mission on Tython has been compromised, she doesn't leave before receiving her next set of Imperial orders from her undercover spymaster, Watcher Flingeld, who gives her a new mandate to proceed to Coruscant, where she is to remain in disguise while she makes contact with Fixer Alameada, otherwise known as Big Jan...

That’s a very broad spectrum. It would help with some extra info

Male or female?
If female, what body type are you attracted too
Does your legacy name have a theme?
Do you mainly go dark or light?
Have you got a class in mind?
What are your interests outside of the game?
Do you have a favourite movie or sport or activity?
How many legacy outfit slot do you have open?
Do you want to be taken seriously or be funny?

My characters using follow a theme of some sort.
I went through a whole dead pool theme for a while, but got board with that and changed my legacy and some names
Then I went onto real SW canon names (before Disney made it all non canon)
All my Alts are female, so space Barbie is definitely a thing for me
I’ve made Alts to fit the theme of the guild names

There really are so many choices, lol.
Give us something to work with

You need that emote that has the chair and your hands are tied behind your back

Echo Echo

First, great name just because. (With the title "The One and Only"?!!! The irony!!!)

Now the backstory. A young, force-sensitive boy with his parents on a visit to a Coruscant opera. On their way home, a Black Sun thug tries to rob the parents with a blaster. The mother struggles, the blaster goes off accidentally, and the boy's parents' are killed. As the force sensitive boy grows, he is trained in the ways of the force by his father's butler, who also happens to be an old Jedi Master called Eel'fred. Eel'fred trains young Bruu in the ways of the force. As he grows, however, his desire for vengeance leads him down a dark path, making him into a kind of masked vigilante, a dark Jedi Knight if you will.

Echo Echo's arch nemesis is a terrible Sith known as The Idiot. He is an idiot. But a dangerous idiot.

Edit: Alternate names for this caped warrior:

Wingmaw Woman/Warrior/Watcher
Mynock Man/Mister Mynock/Mynock Maurader

I thought of a good name, but then I thought I might want to use it myself.

But, in regard to names, I tend to give my characters realistic non-gimicky names. Some of the names suggested here, like "Pesticide Free", or "Don't Shoot" are sort of humorous and/or odd, but you can get sick of them really easily.
A lot of people also like to try to come up with "star warsy" sounding names, but keep in mind that it's an entire galaxy - there's bound to be some people named Bob, Jane, Rey, Finn, etc.

If you haven't already done so, I'd suggest a Gunslinger, but I don't know how liked 'Slingers are in PvP.
