    Default Need a Name Thread

    I mentioned that I was interested in doing this awhile ago, but never got around to it as I had no need at the time. However, now...

    The idea of the Need a Name Thread is to request input for the names of characters and locations in a work of fiction if you're unable to think of one. The idea is to hopefully bring the community a bit closer together and allow fans of certain works to help name something if there is a need for it. Or just a place if you have a lot of excess names you thought of but never had a use for.

    Myself, I'm looking for a surname. I'm looking for something that can describe a family who's extremely wealthy, but at the same time oppresses the people around them. Any ideas?

    This is a great idea for a thread! I'll probably find myself using it all the time. Don't have a name I need suggestions with yet, but you can bet I'll be back here when I have one!

    What about Kaiser? Means Emperor in German, and I don't think it's too strange of a surname. I've met two individuals that weren't related that had this last name, so it's common enough. Just my suggestion, though.

    Hmm, Roger Kaiser, Tiffany Kaiser and August Kaiser don't have quite the ring I'm looking for. I probably should have specified some first names.

    There's Eric and Elsa, the mother and father of the family. Their children are Tiffany, Roger, Ashley, Summer, August and Forrest. They're just a typical tight knit wealthy family and most of them happen to be snobs.

    Hmm... Right, I think I can of a fictional name that fits the first criteria, but not sure about the second: "Vanidoré"

    *Looks at the name*
    I'm not certain, what about you, @Caitlin;?

    Makes me think of either family in the Romeo and Juliet story. Montague or Capulet would fit just fine, imo. xP

    Anyway, I'm not having trouble looking for names right now, but I might in the future.

    I like where it's going. Perhaps "Vanidy", a corruption of vanity, or Vannedy, to put them in line with the Kennedy family.

    Hmm, I think I have my name. Thanks guys.

    I need some suggestions for ordnance names (small arms, crew served weapons and heavier things like missiles and bombs), arms manufacturers and ships for Life of the Legendaries and Poké Wars.

    So far I have these:

    Companies
    Veekun Arms - small arms

    Munitions
    AA-122 "Altaria" - Gravity seeking (locks onto gravity fluctuations caused by antigrav engines) SAM missile. 176 pound HE warhead. Speed of ~ Mach 3. Maximum range of ~90,000 feet.
    AGM-82 "Onidrill" - Semi-active radar homing air to surface missile with a 270 pound blast-frag warhead. Maximum Range of ~27 miles. Speed of ~ Mach 1.01
    AIM-12 Spearow - Radar guided air-to-air missile with annular blast-frag warhead.
    RIM-453 Koaruhie - Short range surface-to-air radar guided homing missile.
    Kamex 20 mm CIWS - automated 20 mm gatling guns with integrated radar designed to shoot down close in threats like missiles, low-flying aircraft and small boats.

    Small Arms
    Veekun Arms 151 - 12 gauge shotgun
    Veekun Arms Close Combat - .45 caliber pistol
    Veekun Arms Thunderwave - battery powered ranged pokémon stunner.

    ----------------

    Note that the "Pokémon World" exists on Earth but some places do have an indigenous arms industry.

    I'm looking for names for the Pokémon world's version of these:

    AIM-54_Phoenix
    AGM-88_HARM
    AIM-9_Sidewinder

    Any other suggestions are welcome.

    Sidewinder? Serperior, Arbok, or Seviper.

    Thanks! AIM-62 Sacred Fire sounds perfect! Though I did play with the idea of AIM-62 Rayquaza (In Life of the Legendaries Rayquaza has a lot of flight hours and he's accomplished pilot; he had a hand in its design).

    AIM-04 Seviper sounds great!

    Glad this exists, I have too many name ideas for my own good. Plus I don't get around to writing much, probably why I haven't posted here before (Hey, all!).
