So, my Level 15 Spirit companions haven't reached their first promotion, but I have a second pirate with the same set of companions at Level 52, and upon entering a Tavern Cellar, I discovered that two of them have all been assigned horrible randomized names.

Spirit of Giving - Smart Snipe
Spirit of Receiving - Tall Bert Boxer (this one is actually okay)
Spirit of Returning - Soggy Bart Drake

Now, this has been a pet peeve of mine since receiving Faithful Hair, the Bison Scout, on one of my pirates. I would seriously pay many Crowns in order to choose names I like for members of my crew.

@Ratbeard? @Falmea?

Yar, and allow me to get a true Santo Pollo name for my Toreador instead of those CR "outlaw" names.

Can't stop chuckling at "Faithful Hair."

One of my pirates recruited a Bison Archer named "Laughing Chaser", now I have an image of him chasing me & giggling madly.

I got pretty good names maybe it's just tough luck Willowydream
But I would like to rename some of my companions.

My bison scout has a nice name (his name is Shadow Wolf)

I got a Bison Scout named Sky Heart... I won't say it isn't good, but it's nothing compared to Lightning Crow the Black Storm Elder! Sky Heart doesn't want a new name, but he seconds this motion.

I’m pretty sure two of my companions from Cooper’s Roost have “Stinky” in their names so I wouldn’t mind this change.

awesome idea but considering that we have officially named companions such as ratbeard or bat masterson (etc, etc..), i honestly don't see how it could be implemented.

Why specifically "Dai Shi"? Is it a movie reference or something?

I'm only talking about renaming those that get assigned random names -- Just like when we buy a new ship, we can go to Louis Couleur and have him change the name.

Not the companions who have already got names from their story/quests.

I can understand your point. I wish that we could name the companions that have random names. One of my companions on my privateer has the name of "Lightning Hair" and I think that is very odd.

I don't know why, but that thought is so stupid that it's the funniest comment I've seen today.

Mine is literally called "Stinky Mad Chaser". I'm not even sure how.

Seems like a sensible idea to me. We can change randomized names we don't like, and KI has another way to squeeze Crowns out of us. Sounds like a win/win to me.

Sneaky Fallon: "One of my companions on my privateer has the name of "Lightning Hair" and I think that is very odd."

Not to mention seriously unsafe. Where were the OSHA gendarmes when that name was handed out, I wonder?

It would also be nice if WDs could get a name for the Batacuda, Skysnake & Crokagator. The only ones with names are Scorpius, El Tiburon, Nikeeta, & Madclaw.
