Anyone know a good name generator for Germanic Characters (Not German). The one I've been using only has first names.

Not a generator, but two lists of surnames:
https://surnames.behindthename.com/name ... igh-german
https://surnames.behindthename.com/subm ... t-germanic
Permanently gone.

Is this translation accurate? (Arabic):

Dawlat Alshurta al-Qalb (Police State of Kafuristan)
Krasnoye Dvizheniye (Red Movement) - Trigunia

Can anyone with experience with French advise me on what the best French translation would be for "Canrillaise National Party"?

Could someone help me with the most appropriate Jelbic word – or more specifically the Wrnukaék word, if possible – for “faction“ , as in a faction within a political party.

The closest I can find is Grsho meaning group.

Any thoughts?

Code: Select all
Drsmojad - n., "Chapter, section, division." From drsmo "to divide."

might work, thought it's been used (by me) to literally mean a chapter in a book, so... probably not ideal.

I've created

Code: Select all
Tjarjo - v., "to split, to cut."
Tjarziprta - n., "Faction (of a political party or group)". From tjarjo "to split" + Prta "party". Literally "split party".


Both are now on the wiki.
