Hello everyone!

Back in the day when I was still playing WoW..

I had a couple of guilds I managed with some of my friends.. The problem is.. Comming up with a name is not our cup of tea and since we wanted to make a new guild in this game.. We need some of your help

We like short names.. One or two words.. Cool sounding..

Examples:
Legend
The Legend

Stuff like that words with a meaning but just that word and nothing else

Feel free to add any suggestions
Thanks in advance!

Cheers!

This might come across as mean but isnít intended that way.

A guild name is its identity. It should be something that reflects the attitude of the guild and it should be something interesting. Frankly if you canít come up with the name on your own I question your ability to run a good guild. Itís a lot of work and picking the name is only a small part of that.

I appreciate your comment I have lead a good guild in WoW.. So I don't question my ability to lead one.. I'm just having problems comming up with a name.. This has nothing to do with the guild's attitude since you do not know how this attitude is going to be before the guild has actually started

How about "The nameless", "Guild with no name", or "Anonymous".

Note: I am not claiming copyright on any of those names :P
No, really! I am telling the truth, honestly! Look I can prove it, I am a politician! I am as honest as the day is long!
Besides, I am a terrible liar, everyone can see when I am lying - my lips are moving... oh damn, err, that last comment was off the record, right?

Really? You don't know what kind of guild attitude you want? That's not good. I knew exactly what sort of attitude I was going for and the name was the first step. The name appealed to the sort of people I wanted to attract and I carefully recruited based on that, getting people with the same kind of attitude until we had enough for a couple of regular raiding teams and then some, and it's worked incredibly well. If you don't have a name you don't have an identity and if you don't have an identity you're not offering anything unique. If you're not offering anything unique you're not going to have anything in common for people to bond with and you're not going to have a cohesive guild.

The guild name is an advert in itself, you should be thinking of what kind of guild you want to have and what you want people to think of when they see the guild name.

I recommend something that makes people laugh - that way if someone sees your guild name, lols and decides to apply at least you know that you find the same sort of things funny - that goes a long way. If you want a really serious guild pick a really serious guild name. if you want a guild full of elitist a-holes pick an elitist a-hole name, and so on. Don't just ask randoms because you can't think of anything good.

Well it's probably going to be a PvP guild.. :S..

So I guess I want people that have some teamwork in them :s

I've ran into 2 Marijuana themed guilds on my server.

The Dank Side led by DANKESTBNUGS and the Spliff Lords.
Show your support for the Dewback mount!

Life without flavor's like work with no labor.
It's empty and wretched and fraught with nice dresses!

I've been around a lot of MMOs and i have seen Guild names where i swear the leader just thought of the coolest words he could think of and put them together like <Reborn Legacy>.
Also don't do anything generic like:

<Knights of ________>

<Legion of _________>

<________Of Darkness>

Etc.

Like people said before you should think of something creative or funny, or something that just feels right for your guild's identity.
