So, after watching some clips of BioShock Infinite, I've decided that Booker DeWitt is the best character name I've heard. That being said, a lot of other games have some pretty great names for characters, (Travis Touchdown, Frank Fontaine, and many, many others) which are some of your favorites? I'm not talking about actual characters here, by the way. Solely their names.

Uh no. Alec Mason is the best name ever.

Seriously it would probably be I dunno... Solid Snake?

Edit: Sparky Whitmore.

This, obviously. The only other one that even comes close is "Marauder Shields, Attourney-at-Law".

Travis Touchdown is both the best and worst name... for pretty much the same reasons.

I feel like Marauder Shields shouldn't count because his name changes after a couple hits.

So his marriage certificate was approved halfway through you shooting him to death, that's not his fault! That relationship wouldn't have lasted anyway, Elcor are notoriously hard to please. He would've been a Shields again soon enough.

I think *Insert all the names in a game I like* has the best name.

Not because it's clever or or funny or anything but because I'm a big fan of the game(s) and have grown overly attached to them.

Did I miss anyone?

I can't believe no one mentioned The Nameless One. Also, The King of All Cosmos.
