There aren't any native Minza names, actually (a consequence of the fact that there aren't any native speakers). With the Azirian languages, I haven't often gone beyond personal names. I know there must be some way to more uniquely identify individuals (there can't be enough unique names for every speaker of the language, unless it's a language with very few speakers), but I haven't figured out the details of how that works. Some of my older languages had a two name system with the family name last like in English.
