    I'm making a coustom mando, but I need a good name. Obviousely it needs to be original, but I can't come up with one. Any ideas? If so, do you mind if I use one that I like?

    so in that case you avoid Atin and Ordo at all. XD

    The "creativst" names for a Mando are imho those that didnt sound like "generic boring mando name"

    Just a klick a bit threw the Star-Wars-Name-Generator The Star Wars Random Name Generator
    and i guess the one you looking for ist in the first 5 tries XD

    I don't know much about the expanded universe (I've only watched the movies and the animated series of those 15 minute shorts :P), but I guess one way to first determine what name your mando should have is based on his/her story; where where they born? What possible mando clan did he/she stem from? establishing history for the character and researching name patterns around their origin would not only make it fit within the universe of star wars, but also give the name an authentic feel, y'know?

    Anyway that's what I got. Hope this helps!

    i took the lastname Krieg cause i used it alot in other RPGs and due Ganner Krieg its already swarzy enough.

    the Firstname i looked for the trait or attitude that fits me or better said my charackter and endet up with Jaro. Later i've found out jaro is actualy a Name in ancient Gaelic (old irish) and aswell many eastern-Europe names start with it like Jaroslaw, jaromir, jarolew.
    Eventually if you look up Goran Beevin -> Goran is actually a common Name eastern and south-eastern Europe. So you might wanna check just for Foreign Names ;-)

    Thanks, this is the kind of stuff I need. Archaster777, thats a good idea I'll have to look into that. Here are some names that I've gotten from the site that Jaro Krieg linked: Renn Kelen and Cal Jecht . Renn Jecht and Kal Narjansi came from mixing the two different names that I got from the link. Kal Narjansi is a name that I mostly made, Kal came from Kal Skirata. Narjansi came from mixing the names mixing the planet names of Aargonar and Virajansi. I like all these names, but I can't decide between them which do you guys like?

    I know this is almost 2 years later, but if anyone else want to look up names for custom mandos etc I found a great page. Here is a Mando'a dictionary.
    I got my swtor legacy name from here. I chose "Adenn" which means Merciless, and just switched the E to another A. So my legacy name is "Adann" and I really think it suits a mandalorian hunter
    Hopefully this might help others in need of their own alias

    Well for SWTOR I rp a Mandalorian who took the name Li'ariea Kebiin which is pretty boring I know.maybe translate your armor colours and what they represent then take sounds from each of them and mash them together.
