Description

This namebase includes over 400 (491 as of now) languages, being a blend of ancient, medieval and modern ones. It includes languages from all around the world (Tetun from East Timor, Yoruba from Africa, Tlingit from North America and the list goes on). This namebase works the best for place names, but you can use it however you like, for example as a name generator or word generator.

Some examples of the bases included are:

Sacred (Religious) Languages – Classical Arabic, Hebrew, Aramaic, Syriac, Pali, Old Church Slavonic, Koine Greek, Sanskrit

Ancient – Dacian, Phrygian, Thracian, Ancient Greek, Akkadian, Latin, Etruscan, Proto-Norse, Proto-Germanic among many others

Common Languages – French, Polish, Czech, Russian, Swedish, Norwegian Nynorsk, Norwegian Bokmål, English, Irish, Scottish, Manx, Cornish, Scots, Greek, Slovak, Montenegrin, Serbian, Bosnian, Croatian, Macedonian, Finnish, Estonian etc

Medieval – Middle High German, Middle Low German, Livonian, Anglo-Saxon/Old English, Byzantine Greek, Old Czech, Old Polish, Middle Polish

There’s a total of 491 name bases. The first 200-300 languages are taken from the Europa Universalis 4 and Crusader Kings III cultures, then extracted from Wiktionary’s language lemma lists. After that ChatGPT is asked to put the names in the correct format (horizontal order with words separated by commas) and then copy pasted into Azgaar’s Namebase list. Sometimes the names have to be romanized, if that’s the case I paste them into a romanizer/transliterator like the ones listed in the sources. If that doesn’t work I ask ChatGPT to do it for me.

The namebase will occasionally be updated, I don’t know when.

I would really appreciate it if you give me a suggestion on what I could add to either this namebase or the Middle Earth one.

This namebase is inspired by the works of Linguistics Inc, Dardamuth, Croborn, Lunii Maps, FishBugs, AS Mapping, NewMar, Kyo, EP, Wormfodder Delivery Service, Something, Manji and pretty much every other namebase creator. Although none of their works were used to make this, I still want to thank them for being a great inspiration.
