Bill: OOC: Jelbek Names (DO NOT DELETE)


Submitted by[?]: Knstatak Grundnyr Prta

Status[?]: debate

Votes: This bill is a resolution. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.


Since the current version of the Jelbic dictionary ( has a small number of names and does not include surnames, Jelbania now uses a more elaborate naming system. In keeping with the Jelbek steppe culture, Jelbek now uses a combination of patronymics and clan names instead of family names. The name list has also been expanded by adding Jelbekized versions of Christian or Islamic names, to give the language a more authentic feel.

So the naming system work as follows: <First Name> <Father's First Name + -srmko (if male) or -drsme (if female)> <Clan Name>. For example, a full Jelbek name under this system would be Kezkai Intrsmorsrmko Jeztri (male) or Jlemai Intrsmordrsme Jeztri (female). When referring to a person, except for the most formal settings (such as for members of a cabinet) or when it is necessary to avoid ambiguity, it is common to drop the patronymic and just use the First Name and Clan Name. In cases where the father is not known, a matronymic is used instead of a patronymic.

Since clans don't necessarily imply kinship, I doubt they would fall under the rules of character transfer and character use, so the following clan names can be used by anyone.

MessageI like it. Is it possible to get translation for naughty beaver as a clan name? That is how Opaki Dabar translates from Croatian.. :)

MessageHmmm, for beaver I would suggest "kndz" from Arabic qundus and Turkish kunduz. For "naughty", one could use "Nubaé", from "nuba" = zero (so basically "naught"-ish, the same logic as for the English word). So naughty beaver would be Nubaékndz, as the clan name.

FromHosianisch-Demokratisches Verbund
ToDebating the OOC: Jelbek Names (DO NOT DELETE)
MessageSorry to butt in, but aren't Christian and derivatives of it rather odd as Hosian names? I invented the replacement names "Hosianus" and "Hosianne" for these. Perhaps you could adapt these two in the Jelbic language as well, instead of "Christian" and "Christine"?

From Knstatak Grundnyr Prta
ToDebating the OOC: Jelbek Names (DO NOT DELETE)
MessageI see your point, and it does make sense, but the names Christian and Christine are unlikely to be replaced by other names by the vast majority of players. With the Hosian names I attempted to introduce an air of familiarity in an otherwise alien-sounding language. I can introduce Jelbek versions of "Hosianus" and "Hosianne" though.

FromGolden Keshik/Grno Keshik
ToDebating the OOC: Jelbek Names (DO NOT DELETE)
Messagefor standard Pntek names I suggest using Jelbicised Hosian names.
for Standard Pntek surnames I suggest adding -srimko (son) and -drisme (daughter) to Hosian names, or optionally to traditional Jelbek names.

for standard Nrktek names I suggest using either Pntek ones, or traditional Jelbek names.
for standard Nrktek surnames I suggest poethic combination of two Jelbek language words, i.e.
in my cabinet I used
Srwefluz - beer river
Krnatrk - time tree
Ornataghe - orange fields
Frjdnu - fire dog

ToDebating the OOC: Jelbek Names (DO NOT DELETE)
MessageFor Brmek muslims I suggest following names/surnames structure.
Name = <Ahmadi Jelbek first name>
Surname = <Ahmadi Jelbek first name> + "-ek" (which is possessive particle).

For example:
Ali Mhetek
Reshd Omrek
Mustav Mustavek
Mubak Amadek
