Choosing a baby name can be a grueling process. You don’t want to pick a name that everybody else’s kid has, but you don’t want to have one of those creepy, celebrity baby names, like Nectarine. We’re going to shake things like a baby for this week’s round of Nerd Wars! We mean, shake things up… yeah, that’s it. We’re going to choose a selection of fantastic baby names, inspired by our favorite video game characters and we need your help choosing the best ones. You can vote for your favorites (up to three) or come up with your own. (If you choose your own, make sure to enter the name into the comment section below.)
Zelda, Crash and Kirby are the best baby names ever. Cloud and Marth are a close second.
Bam! Good call. Those are definitely some of my faves. I think Kirby could be a really cute name for a little girl.
So do I. 🙂
No matter how cool a name sounds in a game, it sounds crappy once you have to shout it to get your kid to the dinner table.
Nonetheless, whoever has the balls to call his daughter “Kirby” deserves a medal for courage and a very, very tolerant spouse.
One of the main female characters in Scream 4 was name Kirby and it seemed to work pretty well. I thought it was a little strange at first, but it grew on me.
I don’t really know that the average spouse would go for it at all, but who know, maybe you could sneak it in there.
My daughter’s nickname is Linkie. And the male version of her name (Ives) means ‘little archer’.
That’s a pretty cute name. It has a nice ring to it.
Naming your kid Tifa or Ezio would be pretty darn awesome.
I think both of these could be legitimate name for children. They are unique, buy they aren’t overly ridiculous.
Exactly. No way are they in the celebrity baby name category.
Nectarine could be pretty sweet though…. Actually, no it wouldn’t.
Ugh, and ApplePeachBanana Jones!
Oh APB? That’s what Kim and Kayne are naming there baby.
Haha! Those two are special…
I’m sure it will be even worse..
I’m trying to convince my girlfriend to accept Garrus as a possible name for a yet unconvinced child. Admittedly its an uphill task.
Hahaha good luck sir! That sounds like a battle indeed.
Convince her by saying that you could shorten it to Garry. Problem solved.
I like your style!
Just remember to stick with the Paragon route.
Cloud, Marth, and Zelda! Though I think Cloud is the only one that’s even slightly out there…
Yeah Cloud could be a little farfetched, but that might make it cool. It seems like it could be a celebrity baby name.
We gotta point out the fact that comedian Robin Williams named his daughter Zelda after the games. It’s a great name. I’m waiting to see girls named Aerith, Tifa, Yuna or Rikku start popping up in the U.S. next.
When I first heard about Robin Williams naming his daughter Zelda, I was pretty impressed. That was a really cool and unique gesture.
So glad you put Aya in the polls! Parasite Eve is one of my favorite video games ever!
I’ve always loved Parasite Eve. It’s just one of those games that will always stay with me.
The names of my choice
Miaciah ( fire emblem)
That’s all I can think of right now 🙂
Not a bad list all! Thanks for sharing!
