Symbiont Names

Post by Joshawott » Wed Jul 24, 2013 5:09 pm

Please please PLEASE someone help me with created a better name for the Saleer symbiont. It has to have three letters, and just for characterization, make it flow with one or more of these names:

Eclaera
Kealdra
Elythia
Vexaea
(Or make up a Trill sounding name)

Please, I am very unhappy with my captains name... And I can't seem to create a good one.

Going with "Eclaera" as the first name, some of the names I come up with off the top of my head are:

Vel
Tal
Toral
Daran
Zenn

Just as a key... normally if you want to stick two names together realistically, a good rule is this - if one name has several syllables then the other should have fewer. (or the reverse)

Example: If the character's last name is Kent, Bethany is generally a much better first name than Beth...unless you're really looking for someone to sound very tough (hence we have Clark Kent rather than Bartholomew Kent *s*)

Fic ahoy!

Well, damn....what should I write next? Hmmmmmmmm......

Just four off the top of my head. Enjoy! And keep up the great work with your writing, Joshawott.

(CaptainUniverse and I use "Sloe" - pronounced "slow" - for a guest character in CITADEL. And yes, he is "played" by James May.)
