Strange and sad as i seen some uncommon names...
Out of curiosity, i checked demo videos in other languages and names seem to be linked to localisation (i've checked german and french and names are definitely different for most)
I would say that maybe you could find your name changing localisation but i assume it's not that simple and i doubt you could find it elsewhere (and in anyway, i doubt you could keep in changing back to your localisation as they are linked to audio localisation...

Isn't Jace just short for Jason (which is included)?

What I found odd is that the nickname section includes Clark AND Clarke, with both pronounced exactly the same.

Some pronounciation analogues (like the aforementioned Clark and Clarke) are present, but Clyde is missing from the game. Oh, well... Guess I'll go by my real name (which is present in two linguistic variations and THREE different shorthands! Again, PG shows how much they care about me!).

I wonder if your resident Betty will have her vocabulary extended during FH3's lifetime? Kinda like how in Fallout 4 Codsworth-the-robot-butler had a slew of new names added to its name-reckognition feature added via a patch.

It's also written as text when you switch on subtitles so that's probably why.

My real name (Ivan) is in the list as well, I'm happy. :) I only played 1 other game before where there were a lot of spoken names but mine wasn't in there. I think it was an RPG, Oblivion or Skyrim or something.

'Ashley' is listed under 'Female' names.

This must be why the guys at customs in Australia laughed at my passport when I was there!

At least two of my friends list have found their names in the female section when they are male. lol. Lots of names are for either so if you can't find your name it pays to look in both sections.
My fave nickname is probably Bantasaurus Rex, but only because it reminds me of the idiot headmaster in Bad Education! lol

Change your birth name to El Pollo Diablo, and then you're sorted.

My name is Dante and it's not common at all where I live so I was very happy/surprised when I found out it was in Horizon 3 because I can never find my name anywhere whether it's in games or on those mugs or keychains with people's names on them, But I know exactly how the people who don't have their name in the game feel, hopefully, there's more in the final game or a patch/update that add more in.

I really, really wish there was an option for blank, ie no name. I really don't like this personalization. Not necessary for me. I really shouldn't be that big of a deal to add the name - as a choice.

btw, I really hate Warren and all his friend's constant banter and their constant pestering of me. We can turn off the GPS lady, why can't we turn off the others?

And yes, this was almost a deal breaker for me when I ran into this in the demo.

Something like "boss" would be an acceptable substitute for being nameless, seeing that you're the boss and all.

I also suspect Wozza will become less intrusive once we get up and running, introductory phases are usually the talkiest.

What are you talking about, pestering? There is almost nothing but fun jokes, none being rude or offensive, Warren, when he isn't shouting in the beginning of the Demo, seems very laid back and friendly, and Keira is MUCH BETTER, A MILLION TIMES BETTER than Ben. The name personalization is just an added feature to cement that this game is about US.

You can choose "Boss." That's what they call you half the time anyway, so it's sort of like not picking a name at all.

Hey guys,
this game is great but i have a little problem. The German version of "Keira" always calls me "Thiago" instead of "Marvin". It's the same with "Leon".
I hope it is only in the demo.

My name isn't available, as I'm somewhat used to, so I'm probably just going to use 'Mate' or something generic like that

So you don't like the option to change how NPCs refer to you?

You can't just choose something generic like "boss" and be done with it? This is hardly deal breaker material as nothing is taken away or forced here rather than the fact that you have to choose something. There's like a zillion different generic terms for them to call you, I'm highly surprised to see this even be a criticism.

It's no different than before, as much as your pessimism doesn't want to admit it. Pretty sure Horizon 2 did the same thing, giving you a generic title, except you didn't have a say in it.

And the pestering is hardly there, let alone bad. A thousand times better than Ben and his smug face.

I can only hit like once. As I said earlier, Keira and Warren are EONS better than Ben and Ashley.
