Can’t find an epic Sith name to suite your SWTOR Sith Warrior or Sith Inquisitor? Try these simple formulas to create a personalized Sith first name and Legacy name containing your own name, dark emotions and ambitions.
Formulas to create Jedi names by combining letters from your name, your mother’s maiden name and letters from the town or place where you were born have been around for quite a while. With Sith names it’s been different. There really has not been a formula to create a personalized Sith name. The established standard is to take the name of something bad, change it around ever so slightly and then slap the title Darth or Lord in front of it; Darth Tyranus, Darth Sidious, etc.
The Sith and the Dark Side of the Force often is mistaken for being evil. Then Dark side is not about being evil or doing bad things, but about emotions and being guided by emotions. The Sith are not “bad”, they are true to themselves.
There are a few formulas to emulate names like Exar Kun and Naga Sadow using letters in your name with letters and syllables of emotion, weaknesses and ambitions.
For your Sith first name, take the first TWO or THREE letters or first syllable of your first name and combine it with the first or last TWO or THREE letters or syllable of an emotion, weakness or fear. For your Sith last name (SWTOR Legacy Name) take the last TWO letters or last syllable in your first name and merge them with the first THREE letters or first syllable of an emotion, strength or weakness.
If your homebrewed letter combo turns into unpronounceable gibberish, use hyphens or apostrophes to separate or replace conflicting consonants and vowels.
Sith Name – Alternative 1

Sith Name – Alternative 2
