Zelda... that name seems... somehow familiar.
Princess Zelda in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, when Link first meets her while named "Zelda"

"My latest XCOM 2 changelog: - "Hot Load" is no longer a viable nickname for soldiers. I'm an important person doing noble work."

You know, I no longer care what her name is! To me she is just "A Whore". [...] The best part of all of this, is that you get to name A Whore's dog too. And here is where you can really have some endless fun. Someone once told me about another guy who named the dog "Vaginal", but when I play for it, I went for "Anal". As you can see: "A Whore's Limit Break uses Anal", and "You can learn many tricks with Anal". There are a lot, but you start with "Anal Rush", "Anal Recover", and "Anal Cannon". The dog gets more powers from the "Pet Pal Magazines", like "Anal Search", "Anal Strike" and "Anal Reverse". Ewww!

"Ah," the gatekeeper says, "so you're a newb yourself. Right, let's get you sorted out. What name do you want to go by?"
You think. There's no reason to give your real name - judging from the show, nobody else did. This is an opportunity to reinvent yourself. You could call yourself "Sam" or "Flurtlebomp Norkington the Third" or "Slimy Pat Sneaksworthy" or something appropriate to the weird and exotic environment you find yourself in.
You could also call yourself xXx420bLaZeIt69XxX, or thiccboi2000, or myh41ry4rse, but some inner voice tells you that the operator would change your name to something less stupid, or if you chuck a slur or two in there, just ban you entirely.
You also get the weird feeling that a good name would be somewhere between four and twenty-five characters, and consist of letters and/or spaces and/or hyphens.

So. What's your name?
