Did you just make an account for this? Anyway, since you didn't provide a link - I've already included a number of name combiners (see the "Other" part at the bottom), so your site might already be on the list. :D

Super interesting work!
Her beauty did not fade
her humanity did not survive.
The Abulafia link is dead, Alysma.
Dear Diary,
I've never really looked at any of these (though I deeply respect the effort that goes into helping others with their character nomenclature for a game that refuses to let go of unique character names) but that one caught my eye because Abulafia the Kabbalah scholar is such a fascinating character himself. Umberto Eco's usage of his name for a primitive computer which the main characters use to calculate the Names of God (and eventually entire prophecies based on random junk input) in Foucault's Pendulum stuck with me pretty hard. :)
Why am I always right about the wrong things? I knew PoE 2 had to be a new game and mocked anyone claiming otherwise.

I love Diablo IV. Best writing Blizzard has ever done. That's all I really wanted. But I don't play it that much. I don't have to. I love that too.
