In the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, a player can choose various races and cultures to create their own character. One of these is Humans, which come in many different shapes and sizes.
One such race are Halflings – short humanoids that live mostly on farms or deep within forests. They tend to be kind-hearted and easygoing but they also have hearty appetites! We’ve compiled six things only diehard fans know about Halfling names:
What do you get when your a Die-Hard fan? Well for one thing you end up knowing that some families name all their children after food items like Apple Pie or Chocolate Mousse. Others may want something more traditional so they might go with Sherlock Holmes or the much more traditional Mary.
It’s not like the entire race of Halflings names themselves after children’s fairy tales, movies, or songs. Some opt for something a little less common such as Daphne Moon from “Frasier” while others might choose something that will stand out in their community like Geraldine Granger from “Harry Potter.”
There are many ways to take your search when it comes to finding just the right name and some people may even find inspiration during a vacation! For example if you were thinking about naming your child Cookie Dough then maybe you should visit the Magnolia Bakery in New York City?
No matter what kind of game player you are there is an NPC named Pathfinder that you can find and greet. So if you’re ever feeling down just know that there is always someone to talk to in this fandom no matter what their name!
This gem from “Rizzoli & Isles” would be perfect for a Halfling boy who wants his mother’s maiden name as his middle or last name.
No one will judge your child based on the way they look, how much he weighed at birth, or the color of their skin. All they’ll care about are whether or not you picked out a good Pathfinder name!
Unlike many other games like World of Warcraft where players might choose an Orc first and then try to work backwards through different races until they get something that sounds cool with it, Pathfinder gives you the freedom of choice.
Not only is it cool to see how many different possible combinations and outcomes there are, but if they’re really not into their name for whatever reason I think we can all agree that Pathfinder has got some pretty clever people working on this game because those possibilities just might make them like their name more!
n As a fan of both video games and tabletop RPGs I find myself wanting to give my child an original case which lets him separate himself from others while still holding onto his inherent uniqueness. The great thing about Pathfinder though, is that no matter what species or race your character decides to be-whether Elf, Goblin, Dragonborn-, he will always have one common thread: his name. And I know that I’m not the only one who has struggled on picking a name for their future child or game character.
ou can use my list of suggestions to inspire you in your search for an appropriate, original name! If you’re still struggling after reading this article then fear not, because Pathfinder is also home to some really great people and they’ve created ato see how many different possible combinations and outcomes there are, but if they’re really not into their name for whatever reason I think we can all agree that Pathfinder has got some pretty clever people working on this game because those possibilities just might make them like their name more!
elves have so many potential names based off of traditional fantasy races: Elvira (for the
A lot of people don’t know that there’s a whole list of what you can name your Halfling, and it goes from A to Z.
The first letter (not the last) is always an H for “Halfling”.
Any other letter is just part of the person’s name.
For instance: Harold Elgar Hewitt would be called HarrHEElGar because E is in between the two halflings which makes him/her not fully one or the other. That also means his parents were both outsiders! And so are we who read this blog post about Pathfinder Halflish names! 🙂
Honestly I think my favorite Pathfinder HaliFolk name was Iantha Ruth Eliabeth because it’s so long and weird.
And of course you can always make up your own name if you want, just like the elves do.
This is a big tip for Pathfinder Halfling Names: avoid P names! Because that makes people think of “P” as meaning “halfling”. I know some kids who don’t even realize that they have to spell out words with their fingers when playing Zork in order to get past an obstacle-because they only understand English letters (which are all capitalized). And we all need those extra brain cells for remembering the next letter after H! 😉
The last thing I wanted to mention about Pathfinder Halflings is how awesome their naming conventions are:
There are a lot of Halfling names for Pathfinder fans to choose from.
Some fan favorites include Haggis, Hamish, Humphrey, Iva and Angus.
However some less common halfling names may be more difficult for English speakers due to their use of Welsh or Gaelic words like Bronwen (pronounced “bronnuh”) or Eilidh (pronounced “AYL – ee”).
Fans can often find meanings by looking at the name’s origin country; Bronwen is a female name meaning white brow while Eilidh means radiant in Irish Gaelic.
The appropriate way to pronounce these unusual long tongue twisting names? With pride! It’s often difficult for English speakers to pronounce these names, but it’s not impossible.
You can’t go wrong with a classic like Humphrey!
Or you could try something more unique and fun like Iva or Angus.
# The one thing that all Halfling fans have in common is their love of Pathfinder; here are some things only die hard halflings get about the game:
*Mostly they just want me to say this post would be better if there was an animated gif of a dog at the end.* Well then no pressure! There will be one soon enough. 😉 Stay tuned :)” “Coming Soon!”
What other characters do people really enjoy playing? If your favorite class isn’t there, don’t worry. You can always make your own!
“One of the most popular classes is probably Druid. Druids are able to cast healing spells but have a limited number that they can cast each day.”
Pathfinder has an expansive list of races and classes for characters to choose from when making their first character. Just because one isn’t available doesn’t mean there aren’t any others worth looking at!”
The Pathfinder program offers more than just game play; it’s also very big on sharing knowledge with fans about what goes into creating this amazing world we all love so much!
“I’ve been playing since I was in middle school after my mom introduced me to the original Dungeons & Dragons cartoon show. It was a lot of fun to watch back then but I fell in love with the characters and wanted to know more about them.” –Fans can find all sorts of information on Pathfinder’s web page, including meetups happening all over the world! Either way you enjoy playing with your friends or by yourself at home, there is something for everyone who loves this game!” *”Kobolds are one race that has been unique from the others because they have an innate ability called “wyrmspeaker”. This allows them to learn spells like any other class but also give their allies temporary bonuses when casting these same spells (e.g., healing).” *”The Ranger class has always had a special
