[Question] Does names really matter?

General
Hey people!

So as title says i have a question for you all. Does names really matter?
Well by that i mean when you play a game or example streaming or whatever it possible could be, do u care about the names a lot or do you just pick something and hardly bother with it?

I ask it because i pretty never can decide what to use and i'd like to start streaming a several games but it's hard to start when you don't know if u wanna stick with a name.
Nope
For me personally, they do. I'm the type to make the appearance in 2mins, then spend the next week deliberating over a name.
I pick random words, I think I have a toon called brains and one called spoon.
I certainly hope not...
I chose names carefully cause I RP.
Me too man
Well for me i have 2 names that is on my mind right now.

McHogger - Because hogger is my man
Jaizzer - because that's what my main is called in wow on Another account.

I feel that McHogger sounds pretty funny and for those who knows hogger it could be a bit fun as well :) ?
I have to pick a name that is somewhat in character, even if it takes me hours to come up with it!
The few times Ive named a character something funny or dumb Ive either deleted them or renamed them.
(heck, even my hunter pets and battle pets all have to have thought out names!)

You would vouche for Jaizzer?
The first name I picked, yes because that is now the name I answer to in WoW and also the name I chose to be my battlenet tag. It was a name I fell in love with after reading Silmarillion (okey the correct writing is Yavanna, but it was taken, hence the remake with an i in my case).

With all other chars I name I can't really be bothered to care that much but I have certain criterias. I will under no circumstances ever use weird symbols such as ´^¨, I won't name it something stupid like supergirl, blondiegirl or similiar. Okey I have a belf named manlybelf but... I draw my limit there!

Excuse me? I think atleast 3 people know Hogger.

On a more serious note: McHogger sounds like a cool name. Probably already taken though.

Name them whatever you like, so long as its within the wow naming guidelines.
I (Rohkala) have to have 'sensible' names but I couldnt give a monkeys fudge nugget what others name their alts! :D

Yeh that's what i thought as well but i already reserved it for most websites and game platforms already so it's free for me to use it :)

But still stuck with if i should stick with Jaizzer as that is my main character for wow on Another account or use this new name.

I just feel like they're both cool because they have a meaning. i picked jaizzer because i liked that name and Went well to my title Justicar and since that i loved it.

McHogger is just because hogger is awesome and it came on my mind :)
I've timed out of the character creation process way too many times while trying to decide on a name... :)
Yes, they matter. They can give me a hint of the player behind the name.
For me they do matter. Because i always think my char as it would be real. Would it be nice to hear other people call you Swagyolo or Dkarthasxd? Certainly not !

I try to use appealing names which sound nice, and look nice at the same time. Because i feel like im part of the WoW Lore, and when the NPCs mention me, i want them to call me a "nice" name not some rubbish, like "Behold, the power of Nipplecrusher"
