So hopefully everyone is enjoying Pandemic Legacy as much as me and my group! What have people been calling their diseases and characters? Any particular clever or funny ones out there?

(Please be careful not to include spoilers in your post, or to use the spoiler box. Thanks!)

There is a thread on disease names. I haven't seen anything on character names though...

Our scientist is called Marie C.
She's been awesome so far, but is clearly destined to die from her research...

We also named our Scientist "Marie". We left out her last name, but we definitely had the same inspiration.

We called ours Marie Tarragon, instead of Marie Curry. So hilarious, I know. We're not actually 7, I swear!

The Medic is named Eric Foreman, after that player's favorite Dr. House character.

The others have milder names.

Aside from some overly philosophical names (and an inside joke or two), the two characters that come to mind are "Juicy Jui" and "La-a".

The only disease that is repeatable in polite company (and not an inside joke) is something about "Getting the black lung, pop"

In light of my favorite movie (Ghostbusters), my character will be named Dr. Venkman. Not the same type of doctor... or perhaps maybe they are?

Walter Peck: Are you Peter Venkman?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yes, I'm *Doctor* Venkman!
Walter Peck: Exactly what are you a doctor of, Mr. Venkman?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, I have a PhD in parapsychology and psychology.
Walter Peck: And now, you catch ghosts?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah, you could say that.

We have L. Tetsuo (Dispatcher) and Light Kaneda.

Natural double rivalry from Death Note and Akira.

We also have Roadblock (Medic) and Lady J from GI Joe.

An Aliens theme started from our very first game, with the Medic Hudson, Scientist Dr. Bishop, and then off-themed Dispatcher David Lo-Pan (Big Trouble in Little China!).

Our first eradicated disease was black, which we beat in the Middle-east, so named it ISIS-LV426.

A new character joined us
Spoiler (click to reveal)
the Quarantine Expert
and with her hairstyle we could only call her Ripley! She is Hudson's co-worker and I'm a bit jealous how many diseases they get cured.

I don't remember which roles they were, but our first three characters were Drs. Hunter, Kimball, and Kaminsky.

Incidentally, "Hunter, Kimball, and Kaminsky" will also be the name of my prog-rock cover band if I ever have one.

It has got me in the mood to keep watching The Strain - maybe get some inspiration for character names. Ephraim Goodweather, Vasiliy Fet, and Dutch Velders!

Scientist : Professeur Ingue (Seringue is french for syringe)
Repartitor : Henri Talinn (Ritaline, a drug given to children with ADHD)
Researcher: Angelique Drwal-Kolik (sounds like Gel Hydro-alcoolique, hand sanitizer)
Quarantine Expert : Salima Laria (self explanatory)
Immunologist :Eugene Kolik (half-Brother of Angélique. In French his name sounds like "J'ai une Colique" I've got diarhea)

The names we've used so far are : Mr T, Bon Qui Qui, Chuck Norris, Helen Keller, and Wilhemina. The other characters either haven't been named yet, or have been used only once (and thus I've forgotten their name).
