> how do you g*s do names in your langs? example:
I boringly decided to have [family name] [given name(s)]. My name would be _Tebamaya Krisyān_ in Ayeri, 'Baker Chris'. Its Tarsyanian reflex would be _Tebangchi Karisykhangh_ /tEbA~Ci cAris\XA~:/ [1] according to my sound changes file. Daléian has even more boringly plain old [given name(s)] [family name], and my name would accordingly render as _Pišankristidi Šafan_. Other than that, names are usually fitted into the phonology of the language. Carsten [1] Gotta love that crappy orthography ;-) -- "Miranayam kepauarạ naranoaris."
