what did you name your characters in D/P?

My guy is Lucas
My Girl is Dawn
My Rival is Cyrus

I was going to name my guy Brandon, but my best friend said he thought it was Cyrus. So I would have named my rival Brandon or Barry. But it doesnt matter since he has no certified name, and I only cared about getting Lucas and Dawn's right.

Me: Spencer (my real name)
Rival: Barry.
Girl: Dawn

I usually name my rival Nick, after my stepbrother, who used to be my real life rival... and still kinda is. The whole "He's your best friend" thing in D/P for the rival just didnt really fit me and Nick, so yea. If I'm a girl, I either call myself the official name, or Briana or Katrina (I really like those names, especially Katrina)

I named my character Dawn and my rival Barry. I don't want to name my character my real name because I'm not English or American so the name doesn't suit.

Diamond:
Me = CODY
Rival = SHENG

Pearl:
Me = KODY
Rival = DIAMOND

Penquin
21st June 2008, 8:27 PM
Why did everyone pick Barry for the rival? Just because it was the first option for naming the character? And then we all knew it Dawn and Lucas for the main characters.

Called my rival "Matt".

My Diamond name is Nicole & my rival's name is Riley.
It confused me when another character in the game came out as Riley though..

Pikawho?

My character: Pikawho (so original. <3)
Rival: Drew (Looks like a guy I know by that name)
Girlfriend: Dawn (You don't name her.....I don't think......)

It's probably going to be the same in Platinum. <3

I named the guy Walter because he has looks like a Walter. The rival I named Max, mainly because he looks like a Max and the name reminded me of this dog I knew a long time ago. Dawn was named Dawn since I don't know if you can name her.

Penguin please don't double post.

'Twas unintentional, by the looks of it.

My name is Aqua in-game. That was before Dimentio took shape...My rival's name is Jasper, and I named him that without realizing his dad's name was Palmer. Would've been worse if I named my rival Palmer...>.>

I use different names all the time. I've used Todd, Barry, Finnigan, Damion, Ernie, Dylan, Gustavus, Giuseppe, Ector, and many, many other ones. I usually name them after my many, many, RPG characters lol. My rival is always another RPG character I've created, but sometimes when I don't feel like thinking [ : p ] I'll name him ??? after what I named my rival in G/S/C. I really thought that was his name... ^^;;

I named my Rival Hunter on Pearl...

Dude, me too. that's weird. I named mine Hunter after Thomas Hunter (you're automatically awesome if you know who he is). I named myself JOSEPH (my real name) until I found out that character's names are no longer all-caps. And this is the first game I all-capped my name, too...

Does anybody give their characters totally fictitious names? I was going to buy Diamond and restart my Pearl, and be the boy and the girl (to find differences in text, and stuff. I am not a confused transvestite! (feel free to quote this for a signature)). Since a girl named Joseph is kinda weird, I was going to make them have totally made-up names, probably no human named these before... Kind of like the first generation. Who names their kid BLUE, all-caps.

I usually call myself Luke in Pokemon games, because I get bored of my name if it's not my own. It was kind of amusing when I found out his actual name was Lucas. :P

I've called my rival many things. Some serious, some... not so.

Currently, he is called "A freak". I was dismayed when this didn't work like it did in some of the older games.

"A freak wants to battle!"
"A freak sends out VENUSAUR."
"You defeated A Freak!"

etc etc

in diamond i named my character Cassie, and in pearl i named her Skye. just because i liked those names, and i didn't want to name them after me. in a lack of inspiration i just chose 1 of the default names for my rival. X/
kinda wish i'd come up with something funnier though...

For my very first Blue game, I named my character Ash and my rival Gary, because that's how the show goes, and I wanted to follow it. I think I did that way until Ruby/Sapphire, where you could finally be a female character. Since then all my characters have been my name, Heidi. The rivals could keep their names (Brendan/Lucas)

I used their default names, yes their OFFICIAL names: Lucas and Dawn for the main characters. Cedric for the rival (Huh!? I thought "Pearl" was the default name for the rival?).

Regarding the name "Cedric", this name was based from the Trainer data extracted from the game itself found here... (http://upokecenter.com/games/dp/guides/trainers.html)

All the Pokemon used by the "PkMn trainer Cedric [[1]]" from that page were all used by the rival whom we know was called "Pearl" by default. Unless I am mistaken.
