Hi! I have idea for cool evil half-elf bounty huntress as villian for two of mine PCs. Only the logicial for her would be some female Suel name, as her mother is/was(???) Scarlet Brotherhood citizen that had romance with wrong elf in years before. So where to looks for name specific for human "subraces" of Flaeness?
The Scarlet Brotherhood supplement has a guide of English to Suel (and vice versa) words that may be of interest, if you can get a hold of it.
Otherwise, I have often flipped through our old Baby Book (yes, you read that correctly! ) for names, regardless of human subrace. I find that names from the Scandinavian group tend to make good Suel (barbarian especially) names.
Find a word translator on the internet. Pick a language and type in the word in your language that you want. See what word it gives back. German sounds barbaric, to me. I like to use Old English (same Germanic source), too. Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Italian sound magical, since they are derivatives of Latin (Romance Languages). Latin, itself, is great for magical place/item/spell names. Celtic, Scandinavian (Baltic), and Slavic each have distinct language roots.
Some very talented mad made a deep research on the language and sound of Greyhawk languages and came up with an astonishing software called EbON. Look for it on the Internet, I bought the paid version, it's just too great.
It also has regional name generation for all the states of the Flanaess.
I gotta say the Everchanging Book of Names is a really cool little program. Thanks, Smillian for linking it directly. I'll admit to being a little confused as to what "EBoN" was, but, when I saw the name spelled out, I knew it sounded like a pretty cool idea.
Even just getting the free version that has a few annoying limitations, it's a great little program, especially if you DL all the addon files for different places and nationalities and whatnot. I especially like the fact that the Greyhawk set of generator chapters isn't one that is limited.
Pretty keen, man.
4 1/2 stars, at least. _________________ Owner and Lead Admin: https://greyhawkonline.com
