I thought I'd spin this out of the other thread since it's a worthwhile question on its own.

I've been trying to think of a name for the region that our current game is set in. I've been playing around with something like Fondent, etc. This would tie in ( a) all the cities being named after wedding anniversary gifts (and fondant being a type of icing found mostly in wedding cakes) and (b) the vaguely religious theme of the Cathedral (The Fundament being a name for the heavens).

Brainstorming -
Ancient names of the Nile: Fiaro, Iteru, Neilo, Shihor
Chinese-inspired: Jingdi, Jingsho, Jangjo, Tiensha (I can explain the meanings, if you like)
Anagrams of “libre”: Lerbi, Lirbe, Berli, Birle

Personally I like Fiaro, Iteru, Lirbe and Berli.

Taba, the starting town, is the only one officially named yet, and it is an Egyptian city. I think we should focus on making the city names before the region name.

It should be a pleasing sound. As in the Pokémon games, every region and city sounds nice.

Hi Qiangong,

We do have names for the towns and cities - they're outlined in the draft plot.

Well, it would have been nice to know that. Sorry. Everything I have been going off of has been from the Github wiki.

Ohh! yikes
Well we have 2 Wikis running kinda. The Github wiki you've looked at and then this one: https://wiki.tuxemon.org/index.php?title=Main_Page
I think the second one is more up to date but it might be missing some stuff that is included in the github wiki probably.

Sorry about that. I've gone through the Github wiki and put links to the main wiki on all the redundant pages (there's still some that haven't been transferred as they have Markdown formatting that I couldn't figure out how to replicate in wiki syntax).

Thanks. Not to hijack this thread, but you broke a lot of stuff in your latest commit.
