Haragalan and other East Isles people names


Recommended Posts

Where do you draw your inspiration for the Haragalan people names. More from Polynesian tradition or Japanese... Looking for a large body of names to use - so real world similarities for names would be useful...

Looking at the names we have (the island god, place names), the language seems to prefer names with lots of short, often open syllables. The Polynesian names I am aware of seem to fit that bill. Aztec names have more closed syllables, but still are quite polysyllabic, and might provide some inspiration for more closed syllables.

It is a pity that the river names for Haragala are illegible in the pdfs - the map in AAA has a slightly better resolution, but e.g. the river passing Nemalipaya doesn't get legible at 400% magnification (where pixellation really begins).


Telling how it is excessive verbis
