    I'll update this as the need arises but right now I am having issues naming the creature below:

    A snowman. Is an elemental of ice. Has an wicked side. Turns those he kills into smaller snowman, trapping their souls within minions it controls.

    This isn't a support question, so

    I've moved this thread to Game Ideas & Prototypes. Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.

    "Frost Ripper" could be a cool name for him. (And what real-life name goes with both "Frost" and "Ripper"? ;))

    Snowdrifter, Cold Eater, Snow Scarecrow, also you could call his little minions Howling Echoes or something like that or you could go the other direction and just call him a simple name like Buford , yeah have you heard the legend of the serial killer Buford and his snowmen, yeah that would be cool to hear :) .

    Snow Mage, Howler, Blizzark, Demon Frost, Snowdrifter, Ice Eater, and Frozen Soul are all good names.

    Is the rest of your game and the creatures in it based on a particular style?
    If the rest of your monsters have lore-like, fantasy, or a realistic name, that one should too.
    Or you could create a name. Take a few words that describe it and mash them together.
    Like snow and soul could be "Snoul".
    Ice-Snare Snoul
    Snoul and the frozen damned
    Those are a couple with just that word mashup. I use this method all the time to create random names that sound like what they are naming.

    I have no naming convention at this time although some are indeed plays on words.

    Do you mean a literal snowman? If not it kind of sounds like a Wendigo that steals souls instead of possessing individuals.

    Yes, it is a literal snowman that kills people and turns the souls of those killed into little snowman that it controls.

    Names I was considering were Firn and Neve.

    I like Firn.

    Never knew what a Wendigo was, but I know I've heard of it before. That would be enough to settle it for me. I love to learn new things. Adding a Wendigo in my game would be almost educational fore me. I think I'll do that.
