Naming is one of the least developed parts of all my conlangs, because this is concultural. Rubaga names will probably evolve out of Roman names, while Vallés and Lethino will use typical romance names. One peculiarity of Vallés is that there's an academy that attempts to apply sound changes to classical borrowings, which may or may not apply to personal names. I haven't attempted any lists yet. MNCL5 might not have any native personal naming system, using only foreign names adapted to the phonology and preceded by a particle when necessary. There may be suffixes identifying different kinds of place names (city, lake, etc.) Jeff
