    I can't say that I ever noticed any. Haven't played in months though.

    Somebody had Captain Kirk when playing the Scots once.


    Reinvent the British and you get a global finance center, edible food and better service. Reinvent the French and you may just get more Germans.

    I always wanted to tinker around with the text files to make up goofy names instead of the names given. Would be kinda funny to have say, Smitty Weberjagermanjensen as the leader of my faction. But I lack the technical skill to make such adjustments.

    Started my first French campaign and got this lad pretty early on. In Skċnska his name means "funny port" (as in the wine.) I wouldn't mind a bottle of that just about now ;)

    In vanilla MTW2, England occasionally gets a merchant named Rodney Dangerfyeld quite early on. Too bad he can't get a diplomat (or special Knight ancillary) named Ted Knight to travel with.

    At one point in my Egypt campaign my faction leader was Sultan Mubarak too

    But other than that I haven't had any funny family member names in any of my campaigns.

    A heretic arrived at Antioch from nowhere so I sent an assassin to take care of him. Lo and behold my assassin discovered that he parted the red sea to get at Antioch.
