    @MichelAyres a dwarf is not a fortress. – kotekzot Dec 2 '12 at 15:53
  • LOL @antony.trupe 1. You can ask why someone down-vote your question if you have intention on modify it. 2. The down-voters doesn't have the obligation on post a comment saying why (but it's polite and helpful) 3. No, I usually don't donw-vote without leaving a comment or up-voting a comment that fit's what I think. 4. No I didn't down-vote you. 5. I believe that you receive down-votes because your question doesn't show very enforce to be created. – Michel Dec 5 '12 at 19:05

    @MichelAyres "doesn't show very enforce"? what does that mean? – antony.trupe Dec 6 '12 at 4:34
  • Hmm, how can I put this... That was an example ¬.¬" ... I can't know why someone down-voted you, your question was probably in the "Low quality posts" in the review session. where it says "This question was automatically flagged as low-quality because of its length and content." This is why I use that as example. (NOTE, I'M NOT SAYING THAT YOU WERE THERE OR IT'S BECAUSE OF THIS!) Just an example ... nothing more, your make a comment like I did something that I didn't then you deleted it. Sorry dude, not answering your comments again =/ Go to the chat if you want it. – Michel Dec 6 '12 at 11:34

According to the Dwarf Fortress wiki:

You can choose the name of your own fortress during the Embark process. When you reach the stage where you are deciding on your founder's skills and starting items, press Shift+F to choose your fortress name. You will be given a semi-random name automatically. Fortress names are always compounds of two dwarven words. If you choose to pick your own name, you can craft a fortress name that would otherwise be rejected by the name generator.

    To add: I don't think there's a way to change the name of a fortress after embark, though you might be able to during reclaim. – JavadocMD Jul 15 '10 at 0:24
  • I don't believe you can change the name during reclaim. I've never seen the option on my play throughs. Once a player embarks to a fortress, the name is set in cotton candy. In the future, renaming a site may be added as feature, but I wouldn't bet my neck beard on that. – StarPilot Dec 3 '12 at 0:29
