    I can't think of a name for my dragon warrior character in the video game I'm currently playing. Let me know what you think!

    He turns into a full-blown dragon later on in the game as well.

    hmm sapient is a word - http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=define:sapient&meta=
    loosly it means wise - but on its own its missing something.....

    Deamon (spelt like that) makes me think of Deamons from The Nothern Lights, not the right image for a character

    any of the other three though would do

    Zohar sounded a bit stupid to me, Daemon reminded me too much of the 'His Dark Materials' novels. Hadrian and Hadrius were very similar, but I thought Hadrius sounded cooler. And Sapient reminded me too much of Homo-Sapient lol

    I would pick Hadrian maybe for a hero, but this seems more like an anti-hero, no?

    Daemon is pronouced demon. so its more cliche than anything.

    and its probally supposed to be a hero considering its, as far as i know, their character in a video game.

    I picked Hadrian, because like Anakin said it sounds the best overall. Daemon is a cliche and sounds more like a b-villain, Sapient is a nice reptile like name, but it seems like a race of nasty critters. Zohar is okay, but something about it is just lacking. Hadrius is close but it doesn't quite pop. Hadrian is overall the best one

    Hadrian is one of the few philosopher-kings in history

    Hadrius is my version of Hadrian

    Sapient is my tag. It means "thinking being."

    Ah, so many different answers.

    If that's the case, Hadrian could be an ironic name :D

    Yeah, luckily I found WoW to be very boring with the endless running around to do tedious quests. I love the lore and avoided playing the game for a year until I gave in...but it's SO BORING and the PvP sux :'(

    Rohan is awesome, and it's free :D
