Alpha 5 Name Suggestion

Recommended Posts

I suggest... Eacus - Romano-Iberian weather god, equivalent to Jupiter. Rah! A good candidate considering that it's an Iberian related deity.

Not easy to find a well known (celt)-iberian word.

My suggestion would be EBRO (the river) from the Greek Ἑβρος.

No decision will be made until the last few days before Alpha 5, that could be weeks from now.

More suggestions are welcome.

A cool name would be "Epona", which is a Celtic warrior goddess, though I'm not sure how that would relate to the Iberians.

A shame you won't put off the Iberians to Alpha 6, 'cause then you could name the child "Falcata".:P

why not that, then? "epona" sounds like a much better idea since its a recognizeable name, even if it IS more associated with a nintendo game than celtic mythology :P

Didn't know about the game, until I googled "Epona" just now.:P Don't know it relates to Iberia in any ways either, though.

"Emporion" is a mindblowingly generic name for a settlement, similiar as if some British colonists in the New World would've called their colony "Market".:P

They called practically every other town "Newton" (< "New Town" < "New Towne").

Seriously, couldn't they think of something more descriptive for a place other than that it's new and it's a town?

I would suggest the word "efippos" that comes from the ancient Greek word "έφιππος" that means "man on a horse"

Jubalbarca, I thought about that too but I wasn't sure if it was a good suggestion.

The Romans named this river Iber (Iberus Flumen)' date=' hence its current name (but it probably derives from the Greek Hèvros, Ἑβρος). Arguably the whole peninsula and some of the peoples living there were named after the river[/quote'].
