I play a PC game where one assumes the identity of a character and goes around the world stomping out evil, acquiring new items, and gaining experience. In this particular world my character is a "Bard" which means that he sings songs that are beneficial to him and his friends and detrimental to his enemies. He also hacks at the baddies with his two swords (because one is never enough.)

Now, the question. Way back when I created my character I named him Malische. I have no idea where I came up with that, so don't ask :) Now Malische has advanced to the level where I get to choose a surname for him. It should sound good and it can be humorus or intimidating. Can you all give suggestions? I would love something musical or storyish (read: Bardic) but that is not a requirement. The only real rules are that the name cannot reference any real world people/places/things and cannot already be taken by someone else.

Here are a couple to get you started:

Malische Malefic
Malische Lachrymose
Malische Tunebender

Thanks for your help!

Personally, to help with this, I would like to know the meaning or derivation of Malische. Can you give us a little to go on?

OK. Time to brainstorm.

Malishe Marcato
Malishe Mysterioso
Malishe Piccolo
Malishe Furioso
Malishe Celeste (don't ask me why)
Malishe Moderato
Malishe Concertino
Malishe Allegretto
Malishe Al Fine (I really like this one best.)

I can come up with a whole lot more, but this is a start to get others thinking.

Beat regards,
WW

JW - can you tell me how you pronounce Malishe. I think that may influence what people will come up with.

I read it as Mal (al like in Allen) ish as in fish BUT I realize some people might say it as Mal - eesh

Malefic sounds too much like the French maléfique which means evil. If you are stomping out evil I wouldn't think you'd want to call yourself that.

Malische Mellifluoso, howzabout. After all, he's a Bard, yes?

Thanks all for the help- no decision yet made.

Mal as in California
ische as in Fish

It has no derivation. Just a couple of syllables thrown together.

Keep them coming- something will strike me like lightning soon enough.
