One issue I’ve noticed both as a player and DM is that names of non-player characters get lost in the mix, sometimes because they are too banal or otherwise forgettable. If you as a DM want your players to remember that important NPC’s name, I’m here to help you pick one!
You probably won’t recognize some of these names as cars, but I assure you, I’ve done my research, all the way back to 1889. This is one part of a larger series. Note: if you run a serious campaign where jokes are frowned upon, this list is not for you!
|Acura – maybe put the emphasis on the second syllable
|Ajax – also a figure in Greek mythology
|Argo – also the ship from Jason and the Argonauts!
|Astra -literally means a star
|Borgward – possibly an orc name?
|Buckeye – also a tree!
|Bugatti – some people told me to not include this one but it just sounds too great.
|Cayenne – also a spice!
|Edge – probably a rogue or some guy who thinks he’s cool.
|Elgin – sounds like a scholar to me
|Gutbrod – another orc name? Or a dwarf?
|LeRoy (accent on the second syllable, HATES being called LEE-roy)
|Pieper – pronounced ‘peeper’ if you like
|Piggins – a plump halfling?
|Primus Priamus Prius
|Sienna / Sierra
|Sirocco – also a Mediterranean wind!
|Solterra (literally ‘sun earth’)
