    Default good village names

    i am stuck on having a good village name instead of just the boring old 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc.

    any ideas?

    Find a theme, whatever suits your taste. I use places that are hard to get to.

    actually, that happened to me just before! someone sent me 10k wheat on a x3 route, then soon after i get a message:

    "gimme my resources back or i'll kill you"

    hmm, i was half thinking to keep all of it, but i was in a good mood so i gave him back 70% of it

    pick your favorite anything, and just keep listing off the characters and if you run out start with the cast in the same order.

    Lol ive done that except copied another players village names to get raids sent to them. Doesnt work so well with the new farm list but I know that I started an alliances downfall because the two players were in the same alliance.

    thanks for all of your ideas so far, i appreciate it. but so far i sort of like my own idea about planets/galaxies. but if you can think of a better one (that has nothing to do with just a's or b's or 1's and 2's or a1's and b2's, please post it here)

    the thing that's good with the 1A etc is if you have a cluster it's easier to track once you get large numbers of villages as it will cluster them in the list and you could do the same with the alphabet do one cluster as a letter so it's clustered on the list and easier to remember for merchant transfers etc....

    for me anyways lol

    Perfect Name:
    New Village

    Either that or you can name villages after small cute things so people feel bad attacking them.
    Just imagine the reports:

    I've seen people use anything from Monty Python characters to references to obscure movies. Some I have personally used are names draw from a list of phobias, cookies, cats, computer processors, and Russian cities.

    Find a list of something you like on Wikipedia, maybe that is somehow related to your name, and copy-paste.
    Remember, this is an online forum. I have just as much poo to fling as you do.

    You can also use characters, such as *, and even spaces (after an initial letter or character) to regroup your villages.

    Topics: favorite books, authors, music, songs, tv shows or movies.... have something of interest in your profile and village names... doing so will make you more knowable as a person, anything for conversation starters instead of looking like a bot with no personality.

    I have done favorite musical artist/bands' songs and then posted the lyrics of each new song named village as they spawned. Its actually pretty fun and you'll see your villages develop character beyond what I think naming them A, B, C could do.
    Your idea of planets/spacial stuff is a sweet one. Long as you enjoy it and you break no rules, who cares?

    I listed them based on which villa gets the most raids on it. I intentionally simed all the fields and left it with no defenses to make it a popular place for noobs to send raids. I thought it would be the best of your character, kinda like a charitable cause.

    One thing I love to do is swap the names of some of my villages around. People might remember that my hammer flew at them from a certain village name, but if the name changes it can lead to some confusion. I like confusion.

    I'm not sure if your username is comic book related or not, but in the past I have used comic book character names and that was pretty fun. I usually add numbers in front of the names as well. This way you can still organize clusters and have your fun names at the same time.

    I would pick a new theme every time I got a new village. My village names changed often but I typically stopped at 30-40 villages anyways.

    Past themes:
    AC/DC songs
    Guns N Roses songs
    Jay and Silent Bob movies
    Types of cakes
    Types of cookies

    I would make my profile match then. Include song lyrics (I think when I did She Got the Jack was my favorite), movie quotes, and sometimes my favorite recipes.

    I have a set list of names I go through. And then each server I get a little better and need a new name for the new village...

    I have used several themes, I find it handy to have a different set of names for croppers---that makes it easier to know which village is a cropper. Say you are using books, you might use one author's books for all the croppers. I used to show dogs, and I have named villages for dog breeds, but certain groups were used for the different type of villages---all +clay were named for terriers, +wood for hounds, etc

    I prefer to make 'real' names, not just Poodle, I remember having a Foxhound Bay, a Poodle Puddle and a Basinji Bight. Yep I like puns
