A Rune of Enlightenment lvl 20 //// Spiritual Pressure
I really like bleach :) and i think it would be cool to have my ROE named so i get even more exp
The backstory of spiritual pressure is how strong the soul reaver is...
It only makes sence that an item that would generate you more exp would increase a soul reavers soul pressure :)

I'd like to name my SoD. Oddly enough, I'd like to name it Sling or maybe Slingblade. For good or bad, the guys at my station refer to me as Sling/Slingblade. They say I look/sound like the main character from the movie Slingblade. I gather it isn't the most flattering nickname (most firehouse names aren't), but the funniest part is that I've never seen the movie. I have no idea what they are talking about. They've tried to explain some of it. If you've never seen the movie, it kinda sounds cool. So, there is the back story for ya.
Ok I want my Bone named either Ernie because my TSA is called Bert. Or " The YeeHaw whimmydiddle of death". Because Its an old time hand made toy/puzzle and it sounds dumb , Bonus !If I win you can pick either.

Well, I'm a bit of an Elvis fan (that's all the back story I need, the King Lives!) so I'd name my ELS "Takin' Care of Business!"
Tulkas' Gauntlets... Fists of Fury. Bruce Lee is the MAN (yep, he's still alive too!)
If I ever get a set of DB's (of EB's for that matter) they'll be my Blue Suede Shoes, but since I don't see that happening in the near future someone else can use that as long as they give a big shout out to the j'bob!

A Steel Familiar lvl 656,071 14,243,100
It's no surprise that I'm naming the Familiar after myself (Mitt), but the Iron comes from a childhood love of Iron Man. I saw the trailer to his new movie and it looks really really awesome.
And the name fits... Iron Man's gloves? gauntlets? Well whatever goes over his hands can shoot awesome stuff like energy blasts. And what better than a Iron Mitts to be able to shoot energy blasts (or Magic Missile, for that matter :P)

I'd like to name my Amulet of Might the following:
Nauglamir 'The Dwarven Necklace'
The reason I'd want to name it this way is to make it fit perfectly in my lord of the rings theme.
The theme I follow is that of Turin, the son of Hurin from the latest book of Tolkien. Almost all of the items I am using are authentical and mentioned in the book though finding an amulet if very hard. This one is a bit pre dated, though fits in nicely because of the Dwarven backgrounds already present then...
Slash had me with the Bert and Ernie for a second there, until I realized his user image reminded me of a flash comic that will haunt me forever...
Shade's naming schemes are always my favorite...
elven long bow---> Really Long Bow of Elvenness
i like names which are like 'duh.....!' very obvious =P
September 20 2007 6:28 AM EDT
My all time favorite was a TSA named by Freed - "The Troll was not amused"
Elven Long Bow->style.
minion shot [com-E]novice with style. 
I want to name my Corn to Dark Smoldering Halo soon (for my minion HellAngel) :P

I'd like to name my Cloak of Istari: Silver Flame Tattoo
Why? Because everyone tells me to put a ToE on my mage. So maybe if they saw a tattoo, they'd leave me alone and realize that a CoI on a mage isn't a wacky and crazy idea. And silver flames are the least used kind and by far the best.
*throws silver fire at everyone*
Besides, I always iamgined the CoI as a silvery cloak, so it matches, neh?
September 20 2007 3:32 PM EDT
I would name my EB's "A Cloak of Displacement" because I will be wearing a tattoo on my mage, I will not be able to wear a cloak. Plus I'm a HUGE D&D fan and I think would just be cool! Maybe "A Cloak of Displacement +1" even though I'm pretty sure there is no sure thing exists... it would just be a funny reference.
If I could get hold of another Adam I'd name it Abraxas Scales as I did in CB1. I liked using a dragonskin for my armour, especially a notoriously tough one and think it fits well if I change back to my dragon_rider theme :)
September 20 2007 6:24 PM EDT
mourgal hammer/sledgehammer/A Dagger
I would name my Blacksword of Nan Elmoth to "Psionic Blade" because that's what Zealots use in StarCraft. o.0

Katana => Zangetsu
I have a bleach theme for my minions and it is only fitting if Ichigo's Katana is named Zangetsu
In Bleach anime/manga most characters carry "soul slayers" or Zanpakuto, and as the character becomes more familiar with his/her weapon it will allow them to learn its name, and the bond between weapon and user is greatly increased. After knowing the name they can manifest Zanpakuto and learn more about it. Ichigo (the main character) has a Zanpakuto named Zangetsu.

I have uploaded my profile picture to that of Zangetsu, to give a visual aid.
September 20 2007 10:46 PM EDT

-I want to name my noldor gloves "AMF THIS"
Based on a quote me and my friends use called "Generate This" when we brought a $600 to the top of an abandoned power plant in my home town of NO. While the generator was present on the roof we play a musical performance up on the roof with various musical tools. After it was all done we were too tired to carry it all the way back down 6 flights of rusty stairs so we left it in a dry place on the roof to collect at a later time. After about 2 months of the generator sitting on the roof Voodoo Fest came around so we decided to go claim our prize. When we got to the roof we used 4 ropes to swing the generator down each flight of stairs and eventually to the back of the plant. We were so overjoyed that we actually got it down that we decided we could leave it and it would be safe, locked up of course. After the second night of Voodoo we went back to the plant to discover that our lock was burned and our generator was missing. We all assumed that the workers trying to restore the plant had taken it, but then we heard the distinct sounds of a generator inside of the building. When we went around to the front of the building we had found some "doormen" at the entrance who were charging money for a "book club" party. We told them what had happened they let us in and then we tried to compare generators to no avail. In the end we just had to spend $600 for another generator to replace the one we had lost. All in all this gives very little reason for the naming but I did get to tell a story : ).

my exbow, Crazy Ex Girlfriend
cause even from a distance she was a damaging individual. 0.0
Nice names folks...I actually now wish I'd named my NSs ...AMF THIS.
September 21 2007 11:38 AM EDT
I intend to eventually name my Displacement Boots 'Flash Step'.
Like Hyrule and Duredhel up there, I like the Bleach show - it makes a good theme for a single tank. I already named my weapon Zanpakuto, and naming the DBs after the move that allows Captains to move faster than can visibly be seen would fit perfectly.
By my first statement, I mean that I'll name them that eventually even if I don't win the contest. =)
How about naming my Beleg's, rubber gloves because I named my bow "A Loogy" ?Bye the bye how does this mug suite you !
September 21 2007 6:18 PM EDT
LOL well sorry its my name I'll copyright it just you wait! :P but feel free to use if I don't win.
My Rune of Enlightenment could always use the name "Vibing Up the Senile Man." :-)
September 21 2007 9:32 PM EDT
A Vorpal Blade --> Dance of Death (i believe Sword of Truth is already taken)
MCM --> White Mother Confessors Dress
BG's --> A Grace
I'm a sword of truth (goodkind) fan.
a cloak of istari; the favorite robe of The AoD
September 22 2007 9:56 AM EDT
Devastation - My massive MH, why? Because my character's name is Annihilator and I'm still paying the hammer off :P
I know it's so creative eh?
September 22 2007 1:58 PM EDT
I would name my MS
The Walls of Jerusalem
NINAbuser, September 21 12:22 AM EDT
-I want to name my noldor gloves "AMF THIS"
Thanks to everyone, but he got me when he offered to let me use the name...
CM me when you're available to loan them over and I'll name them.

An Elven Long Bow [6x113] (+30) into Reborn Wraith
because that name is just awesome
if you dont know what wraith is here is the definition
A ghost that comes back to avenge its own death. Considered an omen spirit.
an undead spirit raised to serve its master. Unlike a zombie, wraiths have very little physical form. Their heads are usually nothing but a dense mass of air or black smoke. Wraiths are very quick and strong, but they are very vulnerable to sharp weapons, unlike their zombie and skeleton counterparts.
