You're Klingon name is up to you. Some people just make something up from scratch, some use tlhIngan Hol words (like me) and some modify names from the show. It's totally up to you! Cheesy

Welcome to the forums, and thank you for your service. There are several threads here about Klingon names, all of which contain opinions of and suggestions by other members on how to and not to select your name.

That which does not kill me, must have missed me.

“Kester” has promise as the basis for a Klingon-sounding name, and your forename Franklin already includes a concept on which our languages and culture are based. Tinker with both and see if anything resonates. (Caveat: “khest” is a klingonaase word root incorporated into a wide range of profanities and slang. Be careful how you use it, and run it by a Klingon elder before committing yourself to it, or it to you.)

quoth qoSagh:  There are several threads here about Klingon names, all of which contain opinions of and suggestions by other members on how to and not to select your name.

Here is one to get you started. In an extensive thread on Klingon Names, several Klinfolk offer suggestions and tell the tales of how their own names came to be. Read through it and see if you find inspiration on naming your own Klingon persona.

Based on Kehlan’s experience, I offer you the cautionary advice of running prospective names through a search engine. You may find that the name carries connotations (read: baggage) with some because of historical or political figures who beat you to the name. Only you can decide whether a name is worth being beaten over. }}: P

Hello.. and welcome....

Yeah, Kesvirit, that was funny.  In my defence at the time I came up with my Klingon name I didnt have internet access, it was quite a long time ago, over 15 years.  I also did not change my name when I found out... (too stubborn)

Actually, bearing in mind the meaning of Khest... Kester does make a pretty cool Klingon name
