Probably, if it were a really honorable or interesting character.

I voted for "Probably not, I can't imagine naming a kid for someone in a game". Though I wouldn't worry about naming them one by coincidence too much - I imagine any given name probably has some video-game character named after it anyway.

Probably not, I can't imagine naming a kid for someone in a game

For shows/anime however I might be more convinced

Maybe but I would reach a compromise with my future wife.

Something like if its a boy, name him Marcus but if its a girl name her Lara lol

I most likely will/would or else an anime or tv character. Assuming I could convince my future wife.
Roy is, and always has been, my boy!

Naming them after the character because i thought said character was so great? Never. Naming them based off a name i love that i happened to first/only ever hear from a video game character? Absolutely.

Not that i expect ill ever have kids.

They have definitely asked this question before in poll of the day, like even the wording is exactly the same. LAZY!
I wouldn't consider having children.
No locked doors, no windows barred. No more things to make my brain seem SKARD.
