Hiya everyone,

We're about to start a new campaign in Cormyr (in and around Wheloon) circa 1380DR, and I'm going to play a female Bard (Court Bard to be precise), using the Pathfinder RPG rules.

Any suggestions for a good name for a Bard, with a Court/Suzail background. She is going to be 6th Level and is used to performing in Court/noble circles, using comedy, drama or pantomime for her "Bardic Performances", so it's possible that she has picked up some sort of "stage" name as well like "laughing lass" or something similar (e.g. Tessara "Laughing Lass" Blaebur).

Any suggestions?

What Dennis said!

Here's a bard-ish sort of name I thought up for a novel but don't think I'll ever actually use: Rin Aszalee

Cheers

I like the suggestions offered so far.

I'll also offer the name of one of my own homebrew bardic creations, since it draws from existing Realmslore -- Lyresti Majarra. She's currently travelling/playing courts around Cormyr, and running works composed by herself, and her more famous brother, Rhiist Majarra [canon, from 2e's City of Splendors], of Waterdeep.

I like Lyresti. But Majarra and my Faljara, I realized, sound like Ed's Myrjala. Still nice, though.

I'll just note that the Majarra bit is canon. The Lyresti half is my own personal creation.
