Default Names for sims (first and last)!
What are your favourite names that you tend to use a lot in your game? What are the names of your favourite families, and your legacy family? Do you have any cute themes that you use?

I try to combine the names of the mother and father in the child's first name. As an example, the son of Adam and Eve might be Ava, and their son might be Ed. I end up with some strange names that way, but it helps me keep track of who's related to whom when I run into great-great-grand uncles on community lots and don't recognize them. When I create a sim from scratch, I generally have their name mean something, like "A. Lazy Slacker" when I create a totally unmotivated slug, etc. When pairing sims off, I make sure the one with the better surname does the proposing/marrying, so their surname is handed down to the next generation.

I try to have unique names in my game, but nothing that's just completely odd or impossible to even imagine pronouncing. I get names from online random generators, books, TV, anywhere I can. Some of my favorite names..:

Britanne Anagene
Bridgette Madoc Bill
Alice Montebeliard
Amadeo Montebeliard
Olecranon Talus (Anatomy book is a fun place to get names, )
Burke Caprice

There's a lot more, but, yeah. ^^

I can get really random with my names. Sometimes if it's something specific, I'll look up names in a baby book, or online.

For Example, I named my Black Widow Challenge sim Lucrezia Borgia. She has had three daughters so far, Leonara, Isabelle and Giovanna, who are all name after other members of the Borgia family.

For my Legacy family, I did The odyssey/iliad names.
Founder was Helen.
She had two kids, son Paris and daughter Andromache.
Andromache has one son named hector and is pregnant again.
Paris had two daughters, Cassandra and Briseas.
Briseas has three children so far, daughter Thetis, and twin sons Agamemnon and Menelaus.

Other names I just like are:

Girls:
Illona
Elizabeth
Annabelle
Li-Mei
Alexandria

Boys:
Alexander
Cale
Ryuuen

You can call me Robyn, tis my name after all

Cute Names
  • The Honey Family - I made a family when I purchased OFB called "Honey" with father Shane and mother Gracie. Shane Honey opened up a Toy Store home business appropriately named "Honey Pot Toys." I think thats the cutest thing Ive ever come up with.
  • The Samsung Family - Its not THAT cute, but I named a male Sim of mine Sam Samsung who owned a tech store (Samsung is a cell phone brand). I thought it was clever in a non-clever sort of way. Get it? Yeah me either...
  • The Kilo Family - Khai Kilo (male)was the founder of my first ever Poverty Challenge. I just think its a cute name.
  • Hawaiian Names - Among others, I use Khai, Kamalei and Lilo for Sims of a Hawaiian culture.

I try to pick names that aren't overly common, because I can only handle so many Mikes and Matts and it sort of unnerves me to have too many Sims that share the names of people I know well. That isn't to say that I don't use common names, but that I try not to overuse them. In other words, I'm just rambling pointlessly right now and telling you in a roundabout way that I pick whatever names I darn well please. :D

I currently have a Diamanda in my game, and I think I have a Tobias somewhere too. I also have a line of sims that I always name Roxanne Goldberry, in honor of a my favorite Sim from my TS1 days. I also like the names Nate and Keith, because they're normal sounding without being generic.

As far as last names go... I try to use variety, but I'm kind of partial to expensive sounding names. I have both a Van Helsing family and a Van Heusen family. I also like to make up last names that describe the Sim that I'm making... I have a permanent bachelor, for example, whose last name is Freebird.

*sigh* I'm so redundant sometimes.

Most of my Sims (my favorite Sims) are based on role-play characters of mine or of my friends, so yes, the names are slightly...odd?

Some last names
Stoneheart
Valcross
Lieb
DeLuc
Sonata

Female Names
Takryn
Tyria
Katlah
Sophia
Caranfin
Amara
Sheris
Celasia
Solari
Kato
Ursula
Ara
...and so on.

Male Names
Tatic
Dante
Xarius
Drake
Lucian
Kristof
Hadyn
Hadrian
Lyall
Tyrant
...and so on again.

With some families I go with themes, for example, my couple Dante and Sheris, name their children after angels (Gabriel, Michael, etc). My alien children are named after planets, stars or constellations (Orion, Saturn, etc) and the children who are the by-product of Grimmy are named after gods of death, figures and even places in the Underworld(s) (Charon, Hades, Styx, etc).

The family I'm playing right now are the Monroes. The parents are Cameron and Angela and they have two teenage daughters named Laura and Faith. I don't use the same names over, I mostly just create new ones everytime.

I have two ways of naming sims. The serious way is to look at the telephone book on my desk and find a nice name that suits their looks and personality. My favorite serious names are Peter, David, Tom, Will...old fashioned names for the boys. I like naming girls more unusual things, like Adele, Claudia, Aasima, Stevie, etc.
The other method is to put together random verbs. For instance, I'm playing a black widow right now named Doormat Hallelujah, and her daughters are named Pepperpot and Cable. My favorite family with stupid names is the X family. The mother and father are Exultation and Rumination, and their son and daughter are Clarification and Tribulation.

I'm trying my hand at a legacy at the moment, so I'm naming my sims in alphabetical order to keep track of the generations.

Legacy Founder Ava Legacy, married to Manuel (townie)
Three daughters named Blossom, Brianna and Bryony, Blossom has twin boys with Darren Cho who she met at uni, Caleb and Connor.

I know i'm only up to gen 3 but I have lots of names in store for future generations i.e Daisy, Damon, Elen, Ethan, Fern, Freddy, Grace, Garret, Harriet, Henry, Isaac, Isabel, Jason and Jodi.

Yarr!

My favorite family is the SUNG family.
The dad is Jeremy Sung. The mom is Carii Sung. The kids are Daria and Ivey. Ivey`s a boy. Daria and Ivey are both kids at the moment. They have an older sister named Sharie. She got married to Orlando Centowski [[they met at college. Ha]] and they have one child : Lisette! She`s a toddler.
Fortunately Sharie`s little family live separate. Jeremy hates Orlando.


Umm... my favorite names are usually Continents/Countries, since my name is one! [[India]]. The ones I use the most are Africa, Asia, India, && Aussie. If its a big family I just use the Family Creator from MikeInside.
