Naming in Sasxsek is probably a bit on the boring side because names
are simply taken from their native language. This means geographic
names, and names of people. The one thing that's a bit different is
that names in S:S: require particles to identify them as names.
"li" is used to simply mark a name.
li amerika = America
li jan = John
"lu" is used to link a noun or pronoun to its name.
kivo lu Comolaqma = Mount Everest (lit: "mound named
mo lu deinx ... = I, Dana ...
sapife lu smit = Dr. Smith (health+CAUSE+er named Smith)
