Most Common Character Letters

Post by Svenrick » Sun Oct 18, 2015 5:34 am

Alright, so this is just a light-hearted data collection thread.

If you're like me (Able to discern the immediately obvious) then when you're standing around Aishe, Aneira, Aurore, and all my other friends whose named begin with "A" you begin to spot a pattern.

It has led me to wonder.. What is the most common beginning letter for our character names?

I read somewhere long ago that "S" words are the most abundant in the English language, but I'm not too sure how true that actually is.

Currently I play Caethan, Tokala, and Trogomar. So I've got two that begin with "T" and one with a "C".

The data below will obviously only apply to those who are on the forums and that contribute to this thread so it isn't real science, but it will give us a general feel for things. Besides, its fun!

First Place: A with 40.

Second Place: S with 21.

Third Place: C with 16.

Code: Select all

A = 40
B = 7
C = 16
D = 9
E = 13
F = 2
G = 11
H = 4
I = 6
J = 3
K = 10
L = 14
M = 15
N =  9
O = 2
P = 2
Q = 1
R = 12
S = 21
T = 11
U = 1
V = 13
W = 3
X = 2
Y = 6
Z = 13

I've got an A, D, H, two Ls, an N, two Ts, a U, and a Z.

...This also makes me realize I have far too many chars.

Just imagine the nightmare of people targetting when Arael, Arariss and Aramil are combined in one room ;)

dort, wo zwischen Grabkreuzen Mohnblumen blühn,
da flüstern die Gräser und wiegen sich leicht
im Wind, der sanft über das Gräberfeld streicht.

So long as this is a no judgement zone...

A- 1
D - 3
G - 1
I - 2
J - 1
K - 1
L - 1 (1 made for another person and never played, not counted into this list)
M - 3
N - 1
Q - 1
R - 4
S - 4
T - 1
V - 3
Z - 3


...I have a problem. But many of these have been name-holding chars or chars I started and had little interest in furthering after a short time.

HAHAHA! IT WAS A RUSE TO JUDGE YOU ALL ALONG!

Just kidding, glad to see folks posting in this thread. Also glad to know that I wasn't going overboard by considering a fourth or fifth character :P

I at least want to experience every role in the game.

Indubitably smug.

No, but seriously, Lylena. Thank you for giving me the courage to make more characters.

Lylena has inspired all of us to make way more alts than strictly necessary.

Nothing will stop me from beating your score.

Surely there's someone out there who can beat my score..

Anyone?

Does it help that I don't play that many chars at any given moment and in 4 years I haven't deleted a character without remaking the name? u ppl, ruthless :)

In the same way I wonder what Drizzt would be like as a wizard. You make me wonder what Harroughty would be like as a Warwizard.

Here goes....
L 1
M 3
S 1
X 1
Y 1
I trained up double-edged bananas because the uber-plantain of doom I scored from the beehive quest was the best weapon in the game. Now it's being treated like a bug and they have gimped its damage! That's not fair! My character is ruined!

Thinking that isn't quite full disclosure ;)
Wasn't there an M last year?

I am not counting PCs I've used for stories (I don't keep those around). I do not believe I've ever had an M though - even for a story.

As Mele well knows, L wins by a way for me. I also have C, D, F that are regulars. I don't have any letter after L which is a bit weird.
