I got one, forgot it by now but it was something along the lines of "Lovessocks" or something.  "Sockloved" maybe.

Sudden thought: what if the dwarven love of socks is a reference to Dobby the Elf, who only ever wears socks!?

The Ripe Perplexing Furs of the Bear of Oblivion.

Sounds like something out of Ragnarok.

I have no clue what I am doing here.


I have no idea where anything is. I have no idea what anything does. This is not merely a madhouse designed by a madman, but a madhouse designed by many madmen, each with an intense hatred for the previous madman's unique flavour of madness.

Maybe they spent a very long time on this quest: http://uesp.net/wiki/Oblivion:Bear_Season
(The quest items for that one are the teeth, unfortunately. The Skyrim one has you collecting pelts.)

Reading his name would trigger it. Thinking of him would trigger it. No other circumstances would trigger it- it was strictly related to the concept of Bill Clinton entering the conscious mind.

A wizard has turned you into a wagon. Was this inevitable (Y/y)?

This might be the most brilliantly named engraving I've ever seen.

From a lil' place called Horrorfailed. I also like how even the goblin has a dwarfy name.

Ah, yes, I thought something was amiss. Now I see. There's not enough terrible things in the lakes.

After a little catacomb exploration, I looked at some of the artwork written on the pillars.

Among them:

"THE MUFFIN OF BOARDING"
A picture of a leaf.

"THE DEEP MUSCLE"
A picture of a strawberry.

"THE RIDER OF NETS"
A picture of some dude named Kixi Playclocks eating a donkey. It's probably supposed to be a dead one, but it's much funnier if you picture him/her eating a live donkey.

Also, that temple's artist had some kind of people-eating-animals obsession-- there's a picture of someone eating a horse and a picture of someone eating a peacock.

After slaughtering an entire Kobold cave my adventurer got the name of Arkur Modestsword the special organ, dunno how that makes me feel.

Beware that looking into cross breed babies tend to be hella glitchy and crash the game if you save and reload the game as DF doesn't know how to reproduce what ever the god living hell you made.

It should make you feel special!  At least you didn't get something like "the Holes of Fertility" or something...

The civs also pick nice names for their deities, such as:
Ral the Wealth of Gilding, associated with... take a guess... wealth.

I'm pretty certain that deity names actually _try_ to be thematic, so you were just seeing the expected results.

Cacame Hotsister.
She became an elven princess in year 14 after her two predecessors got killed by respectively a troll and a cyclops. Her reign of 14 years was quite productive: she tamed bobcats, giant weasels, giant ospreys, and even giant snowy owls from the Blizzards of Dimming, and led her then-modestly sized civilization into two wars against goblins. Surprisingly, under her leadership the elves have managed to win even when they were outnumbered by their enemies, who had full use of giant toads and a panda devil leading them. Her life was tragicomedically ended in year 28 by a rampaging hydra.
As far as elves go, I dare say that Hotsister was badass enough to make her namesake proud.

Not necessarily funny, but I just made a Fallen adventurer (Genesis Reborn, Fallen are more or less zombies), and her first name was Phantasma.  Honest to God.  A zombie called "ghost."

A goblin civilization called "The Least Monster". So scary. Another one was "The Enjoyable Seductions". I guess this puts their child snatching into very questionable light.

I made an adventurer once whose sole purpose was apparently to kill night creatures and giant lions. Seriously, bandits were the least of these people's concerns, they just really needed to get those night creatures and feral felines out of the way. Anyway, I manged to kill off so many that I earned the name Zurko Suntick the Weak Dusk. I must say, it was the first time that a given title was slightly appropriate, even though they could've done better.

I found a book simply titled "Hamlet". The writing hopelessly meanders.
