Vampyric names are given to players during The Branches of Darkmeyer. Before venturing into the middle tier of Darkmeyer, players must choose a vampyric name. Players can choose any combination of first and last names. This will be used by vampyres to refer to them in Darkmeyer. Since 11 April 2012 it is possible to change a player's vampyric name once the quest is complete by speaking to Vanescula Drakan.
