(Fritz88: Is Atzcapotzalco a local place-name, Jame?) Yes, it is. An Aztec city, in Mexico.


Another regional name: Snowdonia, which is the region in Wales that Edward Longshanks built a lot of forts in.

Figure robject to come up with a great list of Serbo-Croatian words. [img]graemlins/file_28.gif[/img]
Edit: Oh, robject, are those placed according to the star chart? IOW, did you pick those words based on density/location/shapes? end edit

Thanks, Jame. Hmmm, should a small bit be Arthurian/Celtic style names? Maybe the X's in the corner of D4/D5/E4/E5? Maybe the Arthurian names in the X's and some Celtic names in the Y's just coreward? May be a cliche, but that's not always a bad thing. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Plank, that's perfect. Why don't we make that a system (maybe a capital) somewhere.

Jame, I would have to know the story on that one - 'cause you know someone would ask.

One more refinement: How about one bit (I'm thinking the "K"s in B2/B3) is Sumerian/Babylonian/Assyrian? Any archeaologists out there?

And, let's not use "Gozer".... [img]graemlins/file_28.gif[/img]
Edit: Added the Sumerians/Assyrians/Babylonians to the grid in the coreward/spinward corner. end edit

You mean about Fremickeymantle? No story. I bought a book with a girl named Freemark, thought up Fremantle, changed to Fremickeymantle and thought it was funny.

OK, because someone will ask why Mickey Mantle needs to be freed. OK, only old folks will ask that, but I'm old. I will find a place to use that name - probably a system name, one where they play this bizarre game involving sticks and balls.... [img]graemlins/file_22.gif[/img]

How about "Kinunir"?

Many of the Imperial world and outpost names from the "Imperium" game are from Sumerian sources.
