I get it from people i meet and transform them (when i want to make a sim that's close to a person i want to have in my game), or i get them out of my brain. If you don't have inspiration, let me know: i'll give you lists! :razz:

I rip out the page in magazine where it says who the editor is and such and use those names.

Or I flip open the dictionary and use variations of words. (For example- popinjay is babgho)

Uhm, Depends. If I'm creating an extremely ugly and sloppy Sim, which I do off and on, it will probably go by a - lets say - four letter name. If the creation is rather pretty, I'm looking for something a little more fancy.

Usually something strange. I find names online or make them up as I go.

I just use whatever comes to mind normally, unless it's a special sim and I want to give it a special name, I go online or something.

With the two Sims I created and uploaded, I just made their names up. On the ones I download, I keep their names. With other ones I created, I have a name generator from my Sims 1 days and use that.

I know it's really sad but I usually get my Sims names from a baby name book thats on my computer desk.
It's really helpful if your stuck on a name. Also the names in the book I have are a little weird and they give the meaning and origin of the name.

Great idea for a thread! It's interesting to see how everyone comes up with their sim names.

I have a notebook that i keep by my computer that has surnames and first names that i have compiled over the years from real life, movies, internet etc.
When i make a sim i leave the naming till last and normally something from my book will stand out. I don't double up on names very often, unless by mistake. :happy8:

I make up my names, I google alot of names for sims, and look at pics of real people and make them, my best female sim name is Kelly Anderson, she's a very popular sim in my game, she's the first female I created being popular.

I very good at naming my sims.

From books.
Not Baby Name books or anything, but classics, bestsellers, barely known sellers.
E.g. I have a sim called Anne, pretty obvious where she got her name from.
The three Annes - Anne of Green Gables, Anne Frank & Anne Rice. xD

Also from a list I compiled.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a source from which I DON'T get a Sim name.

I downloaded a family creator that if made for sims2 and helps think up names, surnames and names, and also full familes, you put in the age and gender, and it brings up a surname and names for all your sims in that family...PM me if you want it, I'll find the link....
