Day 5 – The meaning behind your mains name?

I fear this will be a reasonably short post today. I don’t think I have much to say or any images to back it up. Let’s see.

I have written a post previously about how I choose my characters names. In which, I quote:

One way to name a character is to just throw a jumble of letters together and see if they sound okay. This is how I named a lot of my characters, including Jaedia and Seithir. You have to be fairly sensible with this one because you could end up with a character name that sounds ridiculous, however, there is less likelihood of any name you decide on being taken.

See, originally, Seithir was a name I had chosen for my Troll Shaman. I threw the letters together, pronounced them in my head as “Sigh-thar” (you would be surprised how many people have said they can’t pronounce my name) though really, it’s not entirely important, and from there decided it was a good name. There is no more meaning behind it than that. I got the Shaman to level 7 and gave up. I didn’t like the Troll race much, and I really struggled with the Shaman class until very, very recently. So, when I chose to make a Blood Elf Priest instead of the Undead one I had levelled to 22 already, I thought Seithir suited her a lot better than the Troll Shaman. Thus, my main became known as Seithir.

Oh and what do you know, an image of my Priest from around level 20ish! That’s an old one 🙂
