I named my snipers, Garrus Vakarian and Thane Krios. All my squad are ME2 themed so far. Too bad Legion has no last name....
Made by the Quarians so take a page from their books.

Hurricane Of 87's Gamercard



Yeah, Vorsprung Durch Techdick isn't really a famous dildo, but options I was getting from Amazon's best-selling dildo list were running thin (Ready Ryan? LAME) so I just tried to think of things/phrases tied to nationality and insert (~!) a dick or vag pun into them.

Andy Farrant (Of all the fucking people) and Lusty Leo Tolstoy were the only 2 left standing by the end of my first play session. When I fired it back up I realised a game released in 2012 didn't have Auto-Save as a default. Oh Well. RIP Wave 1.

Ooooh, the INSPIRATION from this thread. Next time I'll name them after other super-suited shooter dudes from already established franchises. That's genius.

I did the same thing with my second playthrough, naming everyone after someone in Gears of War (1st playthrough was people I know, including my kids... which was weird having my daughter killing aliens with a Plasma Rifle). I nicknamed Baird "Blondie" though, like Bernie Mataki was always calling him. Too funny!

Not so funny is that Damon and Jake Stratton ended up being my Psionic warriors... look out world, you do not want Baird wielding that kind of power :-)

EDIT (1/22): ...And for my Impossible run I am using characters from Mario Bros (though strange enough, Mario and Luigi have not made the cut so far) ...because of the insistence of my children :-). Don't worry the kids are not watching or playing, just naming. Having Princess Peach face-shot a Muton Berserker with her Alloy Cannon is just odd.

The origin of mine will be pretty obvious.

Assault
John-117 "Chief"
Kelly-087
Adriana-111
William-043

Heavy
Fred-104
Samuel-035
Jai-006
Alice-130

Sniper
Linda-058
Jerome-092
Victor-101
Cal-141

Support
Kurt-051
Fhajad-084
Mike-120
Maria-062

And three guesses as to who was "lucky" enough to be the first one to be psionically gifted... Of course it was JOHN!

I actually have more Spartans assigned to each role, but these are just in my current game.
