Naming Etymology

My early days of gaming I wasn’t very creative. That hasn’t changed. In the year 2000 I fell in love with Gav Thorpe’s army creation for Warhammer 40K called the Tau. A very futuristic combination of Star Wars Episode I Droid Tanks mixed with very Anime Japanese based crisis teams. In the Codex, the book referenced 3 play styles for Tau armies. And the one that most appealed to me was the slowly fall back while pulling the enemy apart style of Kauyon. And in Tau naming conventions, your General’s name not only started with the rank, but commonly took a military style in the name. So most of my early gaming used Kauyon (Pronounced COW-YON) in the name.

When I joined Warhammer Online everything changed. Even though my first character, a White Lion was named Kauyon, I ended up liking the Role Play servers better and found my self on a Warrior Priest named Nicholaes. I would later join for a long time a Celtic Irish Guild, Roisin Dubh and from there I started making alts and using celtic Mythology for my naming. Here I found Laeg which I really tend to stir towards these days. Láeg was companion warrior on a chariot that accompanied Chulainn in the Ulster Tales.

I ended up playing Nicholaes the most in my WAR days. And I got used to people referring to me as Nick in comms. When I went to play on Gorfang, I decided to make Nick into as much Elvish as I could. The best I liked was Nikh/Nihk.
