[PRE-POLL] - Name Heidi's Town!

Postby Servant of the King » Thu Aug 24, 2017 8:09 am

Hi everyone!

Heidi's town is just beginning to flourish in the new world, but we don't have a name for it yet. That's where you come in! We want any ideas you have for a name for Heidi's town, which we'll then put in a poll and vote on.

In case it helps you think of a good name, here are a few things to know about the town:
- The town is located next to (and inside of at some points) a stone arch in a small mountain.
- The area is bordered by a huge jungle, a taiga, a forest and a river.
- The town stands at a higher elevation than normal; the mountain is capped with snow.
- There is a stand of huge spruce trees that was planted just north of the town square.
- There is a small crevasse running alongside the town square.
- The centerpiece of the town is an altar to God with a cross behind it.
- The town itself is located southeast of spawn.
- The town was previously named "Trinity."


Below is a picture of the town taken from the dynmap. Have fun!

I guess I'll start the ball rolling with the name "Stonespur," which I like because of the rocky outcroppings all over the place.

There are some other cool names I found on http://www.behindthename.com, too!

"Adalsteinn," from Old Norse "noble stone"
"Brynmor," from Welsh "great hill"
"Silvanus," from Biblical/Roman "of the forest"
"Adeodatus," from Latin "given by God"

It's a really cool site; check it out sometime!

Deadhill. When I was there last night, there were a bunch of zombies. ;)

Although I got a bit of a Swiss / Austria vibe while I was there, too. So something that sounds vaguely Germanic might be appropriate. What about Schaffhausen?

Salus --

According to Google Translate (XD), this means "salvation, safety, greeting, salutation, welfare, haven" in Latin.

I think this is appropriate because we are surrounded by harsh jungle and forest, and we're surrounded by a river/lake in most places, so it's like we're in our own little safe haven :D

Ooh I like that idea!! We could do "Salūs in Silvā", which means "The Safety in (the/a) Forest". Don't forget your macrons, Amber!! :lol:

No worries, we'll wait a few days for more suggestions to come in, then there will be a new post with all the suggestions in it. People can vote on them there.
