In Uinlitska (uínlitska /wi:nlitSka/) -- formerly known as Finlaesk (fínlǣsk /vi:nla~Sk/) -- names from the two cultures invloved (Norse and Native American) seem to have collided rather happily. Names (translating back to English) like Bear Armstrong, Harald Runningdeer, and so on, seem to fit the patterns of both cultures fairly well. I haven't quite done all the sound changes yet, or deciding which (types of) elements to borrow from which language, but I think I'll be able to follow my gut without creating any logical inconsistencies.
