Bioware Reveals Most Popular Mass Effect Player Names
Bioware has revealed what the top five names players chose for their Commander Shepard’s in Mass Effect 3.
Writing in a post on the company’s official blog, Bioware staffer Conal Pierse released a list of the most popular first names for Commander Shepard. On the FemShep side of things, the five most prominent names were Sarah, Kate, Alice, Jessica and Alex. Among male Shepard’s the names Jack, James, Chris, Alex and Michael were most popular.
That being said, Pierse revealed that these custom names were vastly outnumbered by players who opted to just go with the game’s default names of John and Jane. The blog post, unfortunately, didn’t offer any numbers to help demonstrate just how wide the margin between default name users and “players who ventured off the beaten path” really is. It did, however, include information as to what the most popular names were for a variety of different languages. Russian-playing Mass Effect fans, for instance, were more partial to the names Alex and Kate while French fans liked David and Sarah.
