How to Create Your Own Thieves Guild Names
Create your own thieves guild names using the following tips:
- Use famous thieves as inspiration. Look up stories about famous thieves, and you’ll likely find a treasure trove of thieves guild names options. We used this tip to create Ma Barker’s Bunch and Dillinger’s Derelicts. Look for lesser-known stories to create a more unique guild name.
- Look up words that are associated with thieves and thievery. Think about words that are typically used to describe theft, such as deceit. From just that one word, you could create several names, such as “Web of Deceit” or “Deceitful Derelicts.” You can also check out synonyms to find a host of other possibilities like Duplicity, Money Business, and Stratagem. Get creative!
- Be sure to check for naming rules and guidelines. Before you spend time creating the perfect thieves guild name, see if the game you’re playing has any restrictions for the number of characters your guild name can be or what it can include. Some games have very specific rules for naming. Create a name that’s acceptable and appropriate for your game.
