Default What's a good Dwarf name and how do Dwarves act?

I haven't played any of the Warcraft games so I don't have much exposure to Warcraft Dwarves. I want to at least try to act like a Dwarf and most of all, I want to have a dwarf name (or close to one). Do any of you nice people want to help a roleplayer out? From what little I have gathered they love battle, beer/ale, and mining to give you a general idea of what I know.

Make a dwarf name like Dwibble Orcsmasher, or Boon Goblinbane or maybe just a Twip Ironforge. Just a few dwarf names I came up with

What about Delin Redbeard (sounds a bit too... pirate-like)?

lol dwarves are like all. They dont have gay name like this. Its a nickname called by others dwarves. Exemple: if the dwarves killed 3-4 orcs at the same time ill call him his name and orcsmasher. If the dwarves like to kill undead and hate them ill call him undersmasher or something other. U understand guys ?

Got it, like I said, new to Warcraft Dwarves (dwarves in general, really). I need to know these thing BEFORE I make a fool of myself.

Well, PM me if you've got any specific questions and you're afraid of making a fool out of yourself.

About the names, indeed it's usually a title, given to them by others. However, you've got to remember that the character you created won't be in it's youth. You will have to create background, names, some minor things he's done in his past. His likes, his dislikes. Those kinda things.
If I were you, I'd start out with those things, and create a name and title afterwards. However, you don't have to give him a title like Ogreslayer or Goblinsbane. To be all Tolkien'ish, you could name him Underhill. That's a pretty normal name.

Ofcourse, this is for the roleplayers, a lot of people don't care about this.

Names are easy to come up with, just customice your char first, and then form the name after the apperance of the char like if u have a hard look and grey beard, name him Hardie Greybeard or something :P

I have an easy way to come up with a cool dwarf name.

Come up with a first name that sounds neat. Ordin is mine, however off the top of my head I can think of a few really quickly. Addel, for example.

Then think up two words that sound good together. You may want to include a body part in the name. Bronzethumb, Ironfinger, Shadowbeard, Goldnose, Oaksword, etc.
