Are These Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning Names Or Complete Nonsense?

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a very good game. It's also a very silly game.

Following in the fine tradition of countless fantasy worlds before it, Amalur is stuffed to the brim with Weird Names and Proper Nouns You Can't Pronounce.

In order to highlight the ridiculousness at play here, we've drawn up a pop quiz. Each entry on the following list of names is either a person, place, or thing from Kingdoms of Amalur or it is entirely made up. Can you guess which is which? It might be harder than you think. (Answers are linked below.)

1. Haxhi 2. Spaladastria 3. Lord Akagrafik'll 4. Glendara 5. Klurikon 6. Figglehorn 7. Frat Lorenze 8. Meyetyre 9. Tala-Rane 10. Dokkalfar 11. K'lara Loschachtii 12. King Wencen 13. Flah'tah'rah 14. Arf Thundercrusher 15. Fomorous Hugues 16. O'gar the Bold 17. Tine Delfric 18. Flan Flannedy 19. Lord Khamazandu 20. The Gardens of Ysa

Here are the answers.

    From my time playing the game, I can recognise Haxhi (a zonde), Dokkalfar (a race), King Wencen (a Fae), Fomorous Hughes (a gnome), and The Gardens of Ysa (a place).

    But yes. Exceedingly silly names everywhere throughout the game.

    It's not just the names within the game, but the name of the game itself. A blander, more uninspired name for a game I don't think I've seen in a long, long time.

      What are you talking about????

      The setting is in a bunch of kingdoms. Those kingdoms collectively are in the world of Amalur. So far, the name is entirely factual. AND they've then added a word! RECKONING! What game is not improved by adding 'reckoning' to the title?

      So you see, it's a far better title than 'Skyrim' - what the hell's a skyrim anyway?

        Not the same Sam as below. Great name btw Sam. :-)

    Meh, if wierd = uncommon I suppose so, but either way I'd prefer that to
    helping Bob from bendigo with his rabbit problem....

    I suppose Australia is any different? Langwarrin, Kuranjung, Kilsyth, Mordiallic, Nunawading, Sassasafras, Tarniet..

    My god Australia must be Amalur.

    Well, at least they're not all gibberish ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%B6kk%C3%A1lfar_and_Lj%C3%B3s%C3%A1lfar
