I'll be honest: I prefer good guys to bad guys.

...but, if I were to go Sith, my name would so totally be 'Darth Sunder'.
It just plain sounds badass. Smiley
If I turn evil, I will become Darth Zod.

That way, I can say in a menacing voice, "Kneel before Zod."

Like was said  Latin is a good go to...or any other language than English.  Take mine  Tepes is Romanian for "Impaler".   When coming up with a Sith Name you should think about your character.  What's a defining trait or ideal of the character.  Example:  Lets say the Sith likes to hunt his/her prey.  Hunter is too on the nose so to speak so you go to a thesaurus.  Hmm  Stalker....Darth Stalker sounds menacing but still on the nose.  On to google Translator.  Hunter in Romanian is Vanator (3 syllables)  Darth Vanator....Darth Hunter but not as "on the nose" to anyone who doesn't speak Romanian.
Expanding on this I like to continually tweak a name until it becomes its own thing. For instance a few posts up you see me saying how i was considering something along the lines of "Insanis" obviously taken from the root "insane". Well the finished version of that name is Darth Vansi. It doesnt sound anything like the root because of that tweaking.

Insane -> German -> Wahnsinnig
Removed some syllables we get
"Wahnsi"
German pronounces this "Vahn-see" which can easily transcribe to Darth Vansi
I want to reiterate that all of these are all effective (and creative  Smiley) methods in coming up with Sith names.  And sometimes, it behooves you to do a little bit of word searching on your own to find the name that has that right feel to it  Wink

One of the underlying themes that I use in naming the characters in my stories is to choose a particular culture for them so as to differentiate from one another.  For instance: for several, I chose Old Norse names & descriptions e.g. for my main character, his lightsaber is called "Zearic's Aldrnari" which means "fire"  Then for others, I use Hindi (like for when they address each other, such as "daughter"=betee).  My Sith I tend to stick with latin; I feel that it gives weight to the character (again: Darth Mendax).  Others still I just...make it up (e.g. for other characters I use a masculine/feminine term of endearment: K'ompo/Kanp'a).  Still others: I try to use established languages for nicknames (in this case, the Hapan language: Ereneda (meaning "She who has no equal") for D'Aylanna and Shakal (meaning "worthy") for Zearic.

I took this to hear and came up with a name that now send so obvious: Darth Emrys. It's a druid word for 'Immortal'. It's a sith goal and also a fear (death). Plus it fits my own fear/desire.

Bonus: Merlin is an amazingly underrated show.

I usually use the name Darth Raze. It was actually my screen-name here for a while. Just something random I thought of, and my Sith character is an aspiring warlord(lady), so I think it fits well and is menacing.

I have this headcanon that when a person gives themselves over to the Dark side, it kind of acts the way that Vampire personalities act in the Buffy-verse. In other words, the memories remain, but the "moral compass" is gone.

Character flaws get magnified and virtuous traits are twisted into evil.

Pretty much what happens.  Anakin craved the power to change destiny...As Vader he does the same thing just with  much more ruthlessness.

But the truth is that Anakin was always seduced by more power.

Panda is part of the reason it came about.  I very much am like a panda in many ways, and there are people who call me Panda.  So, a dear friend who is also a lightsaber practitioner I duel with, coined it, and I liked it. 

It is also a play on "pandemic", which I was referred to as after I chewed through about a half dozen Jedi as a Sith in a particular scenario.

This was the funniest/most wholesome thing I think ive seen today. I saw the art and choked laughing. Not only funny but adorable and yet somehow as menacing as a Sith should be! Point to you sir!
