Def Shepard

The most common given names people chose for Commander Shepard in the Mass Effect series were pretty spectacularly boring. I named mine Leppard Shepard, which may explain why I never even finished the first game: I need to take my universe-saving a little more seriously (which is pretty much what my highschool teachers always told me back in the day, come to think of it). Were you one of the Jacks, Jameses or Jessicas?

  1. Pretty sure I have the only Porkchop Shepard in the world. (The name carries over from Skyrim, for sentimental reasons.)

    If you ever want to try playing again, try a female Shepard. The voice acting by Jennifer Hale is incredible, so much better than dude Shepard. Dude Shepard is kinda boring and bland.

  2. How the heck does ‘Alan’ for males not even rank? It is a game about (if you pick male), a space dude. How many space dudes come to mind with the last name Shepard?

  3. I had also considered ‘German Shepard’ and playing as a Stereotypical Bad Guy, but I pretty much always take the Good Guy Path when possible in my RPGing.
