Nation Renaming Guide: feedback

Postby Aquinas » Wed Aug 26, 2015 12:07 pm

As explained in the Explanation of the new rules, the Nation Renaming Guide is mainly designed to limit the use of English nation names in non-English nations. Players are encouraged to use this thread to communicate their ideas about the languages which should be authorised for the naming of each nation in the Nation Renaming Guide. At the time of writing, feedback is most especially welcome because the Nation Renaming Guide has only just been launched and has not yet been subject to the full scrutiny of the community. However, given that the cultural and political situations of the nations can change over time, we anticipate this process of consultation will be an ongoing one. Players are particularly encouraged to advise us about whether the Nation Renaming Guide ought to be amended whenever new Cultural Protocols are approved.

I'm not sure, but I always had the impression of that Telamon was based on Sweden, thus Swedish names would be logic, but then we would have to rename all of the provinces and most of the cities. But I'm not sure I have the 2/3 of the votes to do that in a bill.

You're right, Telamon has a Swedish theme. You can see its Cultural Protocols here: http://classic.particracy.net/viewbill. ... lid=411001

You're welcome to change the province and city names, but at the moment we are specifically asking Telamon's players to give Telamon a Swedish nation name. I encourage you to talk to the other players there and see if you can agree on something.

There's really no need, as Telamon have a rather natural sound to it, in Swedish.

What if you Swedify it? That's now a word by the way.

Telamun is perhaps more Swedish? But I don't know jackshit about Swedish.

I'm not entirely sure about Vanuku either, it sounds very foreign in Dutch.

You don't have to "Swedify" Telamon, there's already a place called "Ankarmon" in Sweden. Tele could easily if we recieve some fictional linguistical freedom be "communicate". MON is a definite singular of mo, which means "sandy soil, a sandy field, a moor or a heath" in Swedish. Telamon could easily be derived from Tele and Mo from when the colonists first landed on the shores of Telamon, would also make a good Etymology.

They are not Swedish names, more Norwegian/Dutch?

We are not requiring the Telamon players to adapt their nation's basic name (ie. "Telamon"). Although you are welcome to adapt it if you like, of course. What we're asking is for the nation's formal name to be in Swedish. At the moment the name is "Republic of Telamon". According to Google Translate, a Swedish translation of that would read "Republiken Telamon". The name currently being proposed, "Folkrepubliken Telamon", would be fine as well.
