    Default Naming scheme for 30 accounts etc?

    So im about to create a new team and i could use some new inspiration on how to name the characters, so i instantly know which toon it is.

    1-9
    Antona (any name that starts with a "a" basically), Antonb, Antonc etc

    10-19
    Bratta, Brattb, Brattc etc

    20-30
    Chana, Chanb, Chanc etc


    Hm... Antonone...Antontwo....to Antonten might work aswell.

    And..

    Hunteraa, hunterab etc 1-9
    Hunterba, hunterbb etc 10-19
    Hunterca huntercb etc 20-30


    Maybe someone else got any handy tips.

    My personal favorite method is to use IsBoxer to rename the window's title. You can name your toons absolutely anything, just pick the first random name, and in IsBoxer you change the title to One or Two or whatever.

    For the way you describe I would choose names that begin with A for first toon, B for second, etc. That takes care of 26 toons so just Aa, Bb, etc for last four. That would make it so they don't look like they are connected, but you can tell which is which. It would be easy to create, you could google a list of baby names and just pick one from each letter.

    For sure try the A through Z method, or like how your thinking. It's easiest I feel like if the first letter or two of the name identifies who it is, helps the mind process it much faster than having to decipher the entire name.
    Naming schemes have already been the hardest obstacle for me when at the end of the day it's not too big of a deal, at least I try to remind myself of that.
    I've done my 5 box team now is the days of the week. Monday-Friday, makes it super easy to know which screen to switch to.

    Lol I had that in Cata! Alas once I started swapping around toons suddenly I was not so excited about my Days of the week toons.

    There isn't much joy or beauty in naming your characters Magetwentyone or whatever, and it makes you feel really disconnected from them if you play them outside the initial boxing context.
