I really appreciate the humor of the game designers. I've got a very dry sense of humor and I rarely name my Sims normal names. The new names in Twinbrook gave me a real chuckle. Just a few of the names my Sims have been christened with are, Del Linkquint, Mae and Will Dye, Max Power and Ima Looney, just to name a few.

Nope, and I spelled Abel wrong.  ;) Still, he's a cutie, I really like his design. Very dark skin, but whitish blonde hair with red streaks and a punk rocker shirt with dog collar. Helga, my punk rocker who married Leighton, would love to meet him.

Hey, Amok, have you tried Ima and Hesa Pigg? Ima Pigg was actually a important part of Texas history...Though I don't remember why. I know she has a bit of a fan base though. What do other people name their sims, I'm just curious?

Been playing for hours now, but I decided to pop in here for a quick break. I've made 65-75 Sims (most are in My Studio under Sims and the others are still in CAS) but I've done very few unusual, at least to me, names. For the Wishmaster challenge, I made each couple's last name relate to the word random: Chance and Vagary. The second one I had to hunt for. One of my Randoms is named Rochelle, which I keep thinking is a candy I've seen an ad for on TV way too many times. The other unusual ones were a gray bald guy named Grey Mann and a klepto with an LTW to be a Master Thief named Faith Amie, which if you rearrange the letters produces 'I'm a thief'.  :D Oh yeah, I just remembered the family I started out with had the father's name as Marcus Twain.

Off to try to squeeze another half hour in, at least!

She didn't start out that way but Ima Looney married Harry Hogg.

I thought it had to do with her father naming her Ima, and his last name being Pigg...I guess I read wrong, though.

I have someone called Star Dye which sounded a bit '...' to me... and for anyone reading my Character blog she will soon become a 'Star Character' Tedious I know!  ;D

Probably means it's a little odd...Which, that name is odd...At least it wasn't Tie Dye. ;D Yay, Character story updates soon!

I just read the latest. I like reading people's stories.  ;D Anyway, I do unusual names as well. I try to think from the perspective of the characters I'm playing. So, for Leighton Sekemoto and his wife Helga, I went with Isamu, Vincent, and Yumi and Yuki for the twin girls, since I figured Yumi was going to die soon. I thought from Leighton's perspective, and he probably would have named Vincent and Yumi. Helga would be attracted to his heritage, and name Isamu and Yuki.

Can we change this Topic to include 'Weird and Wonderful Sim names'?  ;)

That's up to Leto since he started this thread.  He can either modify the original post to change the title or tell me and I'll do it.  :)

Good idea Samoth04. But a better idea is maybe splitting this topic in two. One with the original name I came up with and one with 'Weird and Wonderful Sim names', as an example.

That would require me to go through 7 pages of posts and decide which belongs in which thread.  Not happening.  :D

It's a joke on the clothing style, "Gothic Lolita".

Hey all! I've actually been participating in a thread on the main Sims 3 forums about the mysteries of Twinbrook, and names have come into the conversation a fair bit. It's a REALLY long thread, but I think the references start around here:

http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/480/212002.page

Check MercyLeigh's post. Keep in mind though that most of the speculation on the thread is about why the ghosts in Twinbrook all have green skin, who's related to who and how the dead sims died, with the funny names in Twinbrook coming into it a bit later. The whole thing's a pretty good read.

Well, Sims Wikia said they might be doing that too. And oddly enough, she's got no relation to the Goth family, even though she's got the same last name, and is buried in their lot.
