    Watching the videos I wanted to suggest a nice score or so of names that would be found in Medieval Germany, some of non-Germanic origin but that would still be present. This is also to diversify even further:

    1) Alardus
    2) Olbrecht
    3) Bertolf
    4) Wilreich
    5) Boleslav
    6) Zenobius
    7) Wigelois
    8) Konrad
    9) Thibault
    10) Veit
    11) Trutwin
    12) Zigismund
    13) Segehart
    14) Ruprecht
    15) Ruland
    16) Balthasar
    17) Janderke
    18) Bernhardus
    19) Brughard
    20) Gawin

    Medieval French Names:

    1) GEOFFROI
    2) GUISCARD
    3) CLODOVECH
    4) GODEFROY
    5) RAIMBAUT
    6) SABASTIEN
    7) AIMERIC
    8) CYRILLE
    9) CLOVIS
    10) BARNABÉ

    Medieval Slavic Names:

    1) MIKULAS
    2) VACLAV
    3) KRESIMIR
    4) RATIMIR
    5) DOMAGOJ
    6) BORIC
    7) MIHAJLO
    8) STJEPAN
    9) JURAJ
    10) BERNARDIN
    11) LEMBERT
    12) OTWARD
    13) ZYGMUNT
    14) BRATUMIL
    15) GNIEWOMIR
    16) BORZYSLAW
    17) ZENON
    18) TARAS
    19) SYLWAN
    20) KLEMENS

    I can include much more if this is useful!

    I’ve been mailing something similar with the devs in the past, as I too strongly support the variation and name diversity.

    My reasoning was that if units look like generic north-central european ones, therefore using gear that was worn from Scotland to Poland, from Sweden to Slovenia, then the names of the brothers should reflect that.

    Although it’s a question which variation of the name should be used, since most languages had their own variation of the same name, such a Mícheál, Michael, Michel, Mihál, Mihael, Mihajlo, etc. or Stiofán, Stephen, Steffen, Štefan, Stefan, Stjepan, etc.

    Here’s the list I suggested, which is a balanced mix of Scandinavic, Germanic, French, Norman, Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Welsh, Romanic, Slavic and Christian/Biblical names:
        “Sigurd”     “Siegfried”    “Benedict”    “Teoderic”    “Harald”    “Ludovic”    “Sigbold”    “Gregor”   “Cedric”    “Gunther”    “Egon”    “Friedrich”    “Boris”    “Olafur”    “Knut”    “Baldric”    “Aldric”    “Arthur”    “Agnar”    “Ulfberht”    “Tostig”    “Bertram”    “Albrecht”    “Baldomar”    “Brian”    “Erwin”    “Arnold”    “Edmund”    “Arnulf”    “Vladimir”    “Bjarni”    “Henri”    “Alrik”    “Hubert”    “Berengar”    “Ernust”    “Robin”    “Horik”    “Gerhard”    “Lutobor”    “Bogdan”    “Alexander”    “Iulius”    “Gottfried”    “Peter”    “Martin”    “Ferdinand”    Dominic”    “Gerold”    “Gerulf”    “Patrick”    “Karl”    “Bjorn”    “Dagobert”    “Erik”    “Philip”    “Hakon”    “Fergus”    “Randolf”    “Rollo”    “Leif”    “Torstein”    “Radomir”    “Ivan”    “Reynhart”    “Baldur”    “Olaf”    “Egil”    “Magnus”    “Gunnar”    “Georg”    “Jan”    Torvald”    “Bernhard”    “Einar”    “Ragnar”    “Dimitri”    “Eberold”    “Bertwin”    “Reimund”    “Wolf”    “Eberhardt”    “Hugo”    “Johannes”    “William”    “Haribert”    “Engelbert”    “Francis”    “Gawain”    “Torkel”    “Dunstan”    “Torleif”    “Erhard”    “Valdemar”    “Ulf”    “Otto”    “Hermann”    “Heinrich”    “Halsten”    “Edward”    “Eadwulf”    “Aldemar”    “Hrothgar”    “Leofric”    “Lothar”    “Manfred”    “Dietrich”    “Wulfric”    “Sigmund”    “Kurt”    “Volkun”    “Ulrich”    “Grimald”    “Berthold”    “Alberic”    “Bertolf”    “Walter”    “Humbert”    “Adelmar”    “Konrad”    “Radulf”    “Rudolf”    “Adalbert”    “Hjalmar”    “Reiner”    “Roland”    “Alfred”    “Tristan”    “Robert”    “Wolfram”    “Andreas”    “Reynhold”    “Raimund”    “Dylan”    “Roderic”    “Jakob”    “Llewelyn”    “Richard”    “Geoffrey”    “Leonard”    “Gabriel”    “Michael”    “Augustus”    “Frederick”    “Edgar”    “Stephen”    “Victor”    “Conan”    “Maximillian”    “Leopold”    “Nicholas”    “Urban”    “Clement”    “Sebastian”    “Anton”    “Christopher”    “Gustav”    “Thomas”    “Oswald”    “Marcus”    “Abelard”

    Thanks for the suggestions! We’re continually expanding the list of names and also removing the odd one here and there that turns out not to fit with the concept of our world as we flesh it out more. The Let’s Play series is on an older build from April 2nd and so, unfortunately, doesn’t quite reflect the recent state of names in the game.

    @ Rap! But please tell me that you don’t like some of the names I posted :D – I tried to very much go with the Battle Brothers theme… if a name didn’t sound good as pronounced by Jaysen I didn’t include it ;p

    I hope there will still be a Hugo in the final game xD http://www.allmystery.de/i/t922b36_game-hugo.jpg

    "I am a Paladin!"
    >OMG, Malthus, there are no damn paladins in Battle Brothers...<
    "OK, OK! Then I´m a wrecked down minstrel drunkard pretending to be a paladin, singing so wrong in the midst of battle that even the undead run in fear... Better?!"

    I Have to agree that the Hugo-ratio is not really satisfying in the current build ;)

    What’s a Hugo without a Trutwin, Bahltasar, or Bertolf? (I do like my list)

    Too many or too few? Generally, nothing wrong with the name Hugo. Very international.

    Hugo is still in, of course :)

    I do like your suggestions, Asterix. In fact, some of those names already are in the game.
