I'm sure we're all keeping our most hoped for name close to our chests for fear of sniping (unless you're just going with your username), but what are some of the coolest or most inventive ideas for Keep names you've had?

Of course, we've got all the traditional ones from stories and legends - Camelot, Caerleon, JoyousGard, Hogwarts, Hyrule, Castlevania... And real life; Windsor, Balmoral, Edinburgh, Leeds, Neuschwanstein...

And then ones that sound cool when you add a "Champion of...", some of which make sense as names too. (Legend of Zelda? Robin of Sherwood? Secret of Mana? Death of A_Salesman?)

Anyway, what are some of the ideas you've had?

I'll be honest, I want to post in this so bad, but I have to hold back my suggestion.

Its not like super obvious but I seriously SERIOUSLY want to be first to get to this one.


I'll post a second suggestion.

Name: Can of Worms.

Name: Lots of Love

Name: King of Hill

Name: Bowl of Soup

Name: All of Ahh

Considering the Keep Name is going to be the username then most "place" names aren't gonna sound right.

Well, I'm thinking I'll want to try and dominate the Keep Defense/Raid Boss rankings, so I'm trying to think of something that I'd be happy to see showing up at the top of the charts.

Right now I'm split between Kitkat, Cocacola, and Volkswagen.

I wouldn't go CocaCola as they have bad press right now and won't pay as well

I'm considering a Welsh name. I find their aversion to vowels vastly entertaining.

Have you ever tried to give verbal directions to places in Whales?

"Oh, Penmynydd is just past Llanfairpwllgwyngyll."

Don't forget, w and y are (often) both vowels in Welsh.

As far as toponyms go, Llanfairpwllgwyngyll's got nothing on Rhosllanerchrugog. They have better microbreweries, too.

Volkswagen would be pretty hilarious. I'm going to go with whatever company pays me most though. Right now I'm in talks with Barry and Sons Plumbing and Kurt's Kars.

I live a few 100 KM's from the longest place name in the world, so I'll be hoping no one steals this one.

Taumata*whakatangihanga*koauau*o*tamatea*turi*puka kapiki*maunga*horo*nuku*pokai*whenua*kitanatahu. It sounds exactly as it is spelt and it kind of rolls off the tongue.

Also, it has been the 8th for 13 hours now... I can't wait any more!

I'm going to go with the same username I've been using for years. May not sound "cool" but it's my identity.

I still haven't made my mind up and time is indeed running short.. Should I go with my good old name or something that sounds like a keepname? It is kind of cool when someone from times past see my name in some game and goes: "Hey, are you Kardh from <insert some old game>? Nice to see you again", but I can think of a few cooler names for a keep. I wish I had picked up an extra low level KS pledge so I could make two accounts and decide later which one to use.

Kardh is an awesome keepname. You could consider it the family name of your ruling house. Or I could see is as the name of some craggy outpost, overlooking a deep mysterious loch. Kardh is just fine. My handle has numbers, so there's no way I'm using that. Flavor over function for me. You could have both!

Just so long as you name one of your champions "House." That's nice and meta, plus then he'll be House of Kardh. :)

I'm aware. But it's a valid point regardless.

I don't think they'd take lightly to users impersonating staff members. It was a huge issue on Steam at one point, as an example.

I'm trying to think of a good keep name still. Curious if anyone knows if you can have multiple capital letters in the name? So you could do something like "AdjectiveNoun" or would it be "Adjectivenoun"?

Well, in the stream Cory's name showed up as cryptozoic (all small caps) and Colin's as Colin (capitalised), so it looks like the names will retain the cases you enter them with. So, CamelCaps should be fine! (Just a guess, though.)

I am clueless as to what I want for my keep name. the first idea to pop into my mind was Magrathea but then i thought if i am going to do that i might as well do Gallifrey. but none of these idea really scream "This is who I am!"

Anybody else having issues?
