Couple from North Carolina decided to name their daughter Tali’Zorah for their love of the Mass Effect game series. Baby’s father Adam posted on January 4 how his wife fell in love with the name while they were playing Mass Effect 1 several years ago. They had so much fun explaining their friends and family the origin of this unusual name, saying "we wanted a nice Quarian name". You can imagine the look on their faces after hearing a word Quarian.
People in their lives were not the only ones that were confused, some accounts got the message out about baby’s name being “Mass Effect”. Even fans of the game agree how controversial the name is. Naming your child simply Tali would be better, some said thinking how it could bring stalkers into daughter’s life. Others are worried it would set her up for the mockery. I don’t think her generation would mock someone named after the popular video game character. The world has changed and video games are seen as a good thing.
When asked why they don’t give Tali as first name and Zorah as a middle one, Adam said they promised his wife’s grandmother to name baby after her, thus middle name has to be Rose. Grandma is over the moon for it. In fact their families like the name so much that parents were surprised by the response on the Internet.
Fictional Tali’Zorah is a member of player’s squad. Still very young, but already a mechanical genius. I can’t see why naming a baby after a fictional genius would be a bad idea. Furthermore Tali is devoted to work for the greater good. Today’s parents come from a generation of gamers, it is only normal to name their kids after favourite characters. Our parents were giving names based on film characters and that was ok. I would rather name my daughter Tali’Zorah than give her some common name just to blend in.
RPG video games brought many players together, at least they can say to have something in common. Do not mistake multiplayer games for online dating. Gamers play for fun and they meet others on a way, but they do not play games to find a potential partner. These things just happen spontaneously, same as you would meet an interesting person in a pub or on holiday, or wherever you go.
