>how do you g*s do names in your langs? example:
Each of the Six Loquent Peoples uses a simple form for naming. Each of the Ethrans and the Xylans, all of which Peoples were created all at once, bears a single name decided upon at the time of creation. There is no need for a lineal name since there was no procreation. The other four Peoples use a given name plus a patronymic (Lithans) or matrinymic (Pyrans, Humans, and Hydorans), the patronymic preceding the given name. The patronymic is formed with the prefix "ßoon-," child of. [ß = dz)] The Pyrans precede these two names with a "clan" name, actually the name of their settlement: "of the ____ settlement, child of ____, N." Charlie
