Sarah and Jack are among the most common names chosen for Commander Shepard based on player data analyzed from Mass Effect 3, BioWare revealed.
While the most common name choices were the game's defaults, John and Jane, the top five player-dictated female Shephard names include Sarah, Kate, Alice, Jessica and Alex. The top five male Shephard names, on the other hand, are Jack, James, Chris, Alex and Michael.
BioWare's data pull reveals that Italian, Spanish and Russian players were more likely to choose Alex as the name for their male Shephard. German and French gamers were more likely to choose Sarah as the name of their female Shephard, while Kate was the name of choice in Russia and Poland.
