BRAINSTORM: Electric Hero Names

OK, You are making a lightning based hero. either melee or ranged, the key here is electric based attacks.
I have always been challenged with Lightning Guy kinds of names.

So lets brainstorm, toss out everything even if its been used before. Good or bad, toss out every name you can think of.
In a brainstorm, for every 10 bad ideas one really good idea will come out!

Supercharged
Haywire
Powerpunch
ThunderBird
Electroplate
Powersurge
Circuit
Surge
Overload

I made an electricity hero in

I made an electricity hero in DCUO called Tess LaCage. One of my favorites.

Electromotive (EMF on his chest)
The Capacitor (he shouts out "Resistance is Fusile")
The Rectifier (I level the field)
Arclight
Gigawatt (with a 1.21 on his chest)
Mister Personality (he's electric)
Zeus, Raijin or any of the thunder gods of mythology
Skywrath
Blue Dragon (thank you Gary Gygax)


I like to take your ideas and supersize them. This isn't criticism, it is flattery. I come with nothing but good will and a spirit of team-building. If you take what I write any other way, that is probably just because I wasn't very clear.

Well... um... the first thing

Well... um... the first thing that comes to mind is “Brainstorm”, funnily enough.

Brainstorm
Circuit Breaker
AC/DC
Ignition
For a superhero duo, one with lightning and the other with super strength: Diode and Aeneas.

Name: Safehouse
Ranger: Gunner
Primary: Force Blast
Secondary: Atrophic Aura
Tertiary: Kinetic Melee
Travel Power: Parkour
Status: Traveling. Following rumors of a huge city in Massachusetts that is teeming with supers.

My first electrokinetic in CO

My first electrokinetic in CO was Stormrider, who considered herself a lucky Grondling that had no brain damage, had her extra limbs grow in as feathered wings, and her electric attacks were "beta radiation", i.e.: electrons. This was before they announced the science flight power crafting project: Storm Rider...

Other ideas I don't see above:
Coil
Alternator
Generator
Lightning Rod (Easily modifiable to names similar in sound to "Rod")
Ion
Cathode

Also, most pantheons have a storm god or goddess; real-world examples should be Public Domain as long as you avoid existing published imaginings like Marvel's version of everyone's favorite hammer-wielding Æsir.

I don't really have any

I don't really have any suggestions, but I'll detail how I generally create character names, maybe it'll prove useful to someone.

When it comes to on-theme names, I generally made use of dictionary.com and thesaurus.com to find something related to the general field, and then use any synonyms if the name I put together was already taken.

I'd use on-theme words as a starting point:
Ohm
Joules
Tesla
Arc
Watts
Volt
etc..

Then typically add in a word that related to the character's role/class(AT)/alignment/personality:
A support character might use words like Shield, Guardian, Protector, etc
A blaster might use Bolt, Blast, Strike, etc

I think the only electric user that I had with an on-theme name was Arctech; a cyborg/robotic Cold/Electric defender paired with a friend's cyborg/robotic Cold/Electric defender Antarctecha.

I used this for many other characters though; Twilight Rampart a FF/Dark defender; Starbolter, my Peacebringer; Arctic Black a Dark/Ice defender; etc.

So for an electric blaster... Bolt Bolt.

Sounds like something a random name generator spat out. Speaking of which...

Thanks! I had this idea for an Elf with very little magic, who became fascinated by Ben Franklin and subsequent parents of Electro-sciences. Shortly, she figured out how to use her small magics to manipulate high voltages. So she came from Underhill to Paragon City to conduct experiments on Hellions and the rest is alternate history.

/shrug

That is essentially the process, since CoX didn't have a random name generator, and CoT is unlikely to either (Understandably, given that superhero themes are so diverse).

Given how many comic book characters have names that sound as if they were spit of of an RNG, I don't see how it could be implied as a negative.

I mean, this thread and threads like it in and of themselves are a quasi-random name generator, aren't they?

A poster asks for name ideas and a host of other random posters provide a list of options for them. They just pick one that sounds good to them, same as if they just hit "Random" until they found something they liked.

It'd be neat if CoT had a random name generator built in. Especially if it's set up like the one I linked. Though it'd probably be tough to set it up as to not produce any copywritten names.

I have always been challenged with Lightning Guy kinds of names.

SUBSTRATE - for a character that is a vessel / conduit for the electricity, especially if the aesthetic draws power from another source (ground, the air, other people) and it flows over them in the process of the attack.
MAGIC HELMET - the Elmer Fudd character as inspiration

COULOMB - or variations with GIGA- or MEGA- or JIGA- etc (might be neat if your powers needed to "charge" up...).
HADRON - (based on the Hadron Collider) if you venture into a high energy concept
PIEZO - (pi ez oh) for vibration or oscillation as a basis of your electrical powers. You could also use Resonance or Frequency themes as a basis (MEGAHURTS / Megahertz).
SURGE PROJECTOR - as a play on surge protector
Ball/chain/grease/smokestack Lightning - easy bases to cover
Direct Current - more of the AC/DC

I'm not a huge fan of using

I'm not a huge fan of using directly-related terms within the names, for one the single word names like "Storm" and "Static" are almost surely going to be taken by existing Big Two properties (as these two examples were), and even compound names like "Power Surge" feel a bit too on the nose to me. When I do go down this path I'll try to use rhyming or alliteration to give it a bit more zing, I seem to recall having an elec/elec brute named Flux Armstrong for example. The wifey had an elec character named "Sultana Surge"

I prefer indirect associations if possible. Always liked my patriotic-themed inv/ss tanker Indivisible, the name took on the double connotation of the patriot theme and of durability, stability, strength in teamwork.

What are some electric associations? One of the first things that popped into my mind was Frankenstein, I keep seeing him as an elec brute from the powers given him in the Darkstalkers fighting game. I could see me rolling up a CoH elec/elec PvP stalker named Gankenstein :)

Other associations? Ben Franklin popped to mind next with his kite and keys. Hrm, interesting name similarities there, scientist and elec connotations.... make a big hulking elec/elec brute named Ben Franklinstein. Give him old-timey clothes, maybe that tri-corner hat, with zombie skin and the neck bolts.

I made him JUST before Electric Armor and Electric Melee came out as powersets, so I wound up making him as an Energy Melee/Energy Aura Brute, and just kept trucking along until years later, when I saw Electric Armor and Electric Melee and went "What the-!?
