    Adoption Game (Namebanks)

    I thought it would be fun to have a game with a bunch of names that are less familiar to berries, and a game based on adoptions seemed like a nice way to go about that. The game is naming baby girls adopted from each of these countries with more familiar first name namebanks and less familiar middle name namebanks, whether they were historical figures, places, common names, etc. from the countries.

    If you have corrections or insights, I’d love to hear about them. I’m not an expert in these countries’ names in any stretch, so they may not be typical choices. I just had a website pick random countries of Asia for me, and then tried to search up some names that would pay tribute to those countries for the middle name choices. This is just for fun, as some of these places don’t even have adoption relations with other countries. Hope you liked the concept!
