Narsilium’s 200+ Languages Namebase

Free

Namebase including 200+ languages made up of mostly medieval but also modern and ancient cultures. The namebase mostly focuses on languages spoken during the 9th and 15th-16th centuries. Some of the many included are Occitan, Old Prussian, Livonian, Sámi, Aboriginal, Ottoman Turkish, Old Norse etc. This namebase works best for place names, but you can use it however you like. Inspired by the works of Linguistics Inc, Dardamuth, Croborn, Lunii Maps, FishBugs, AS Mapping, NewMar, Kyo, EP, Wormfodder Dlivery Service, Something, Manji and pretty much every other namebase creator.

Description

This namebase includes over 200 languages, mostly of which are medieval but also ancient & modern languages (modern counterparts of the medieval ones or languages which weren’t spoken until a certain time period). A majority of the languages are from the 9th and 15th-16th centuries. They range from Aboriginal to Inuktikut to Old Irish. 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. I will release another namebase similar to this one but with mostly modern languages which was made exclusively for first and last names, which will be included in my upcoming collection.

Languages are sorted by language groups first, so for example if you want a language like Uzbek you need to search for the Altaic ones.

Almost all names 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,

Keep in mind that some languages aren’t included, either because there wasn’t enough samples or because they were too similar to the already included language.

As this work is pretty much finished, I won’t be updating this unless I find any new languages to add or if I get suggestions. In fact, 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. I am planning to release a collection of my namebases (this one, the Middle Earth one + an extra namebase I haven’t released yet but which was finished around a month ago).

This namebase is inspired by the works of Linguistics Inc, Dardamuth, Croborn, Lunii Maps, FishBugs, AS Mapping, NewMar, Kyo, EP, Wormfodder Dlivery Service, Something, Manji and pretty much every other namebase creator. Although none of their works were used to make this (some of the languages are the same as theirs, for example the Coptic one and some others), I still want to thank them.

Sorry if my english and articulation suck, it’s not my native language.
