    7. Town/City names

    Genre of Story: Sci-Fi, Adventure

    Time Period/Location: Not set exactly, but somewhere around 7500

    Brief Plot: A young girl and her sister leave their desert hometown to find their mother in faraway city all the while being chased by pirates and a mercenary

    Thing Description: I need a name for the MC's hometown as well as some other cities/towns. Town isn't that big, more like a large village, set out in what used to be the North Atlantic Ocean

    Anything else?: I was thinking of using different mythological God/dess names for places, but I'm worried it would sound too much like the show Firefly, which used Greek God and Goddess names for all the planets. Also, the majority of character names are made up, or are at least not very well used, so its okay to suggest made up names as well

    Hmm...

    Ok. Some questions.

    What happened to the countries? (Who blended together, who disappeared?)
    What language became dominant?
    What group of people founded the village?

    @renrose, there was a large meteor shower that hit 5000-6000 years (haven't got all the details yet), so there was mass flooding, earthquakes and other natural disasters. I know that the majority of eastern North America and west Europe/Africa have been leveled, Antarctica is water, etc. Pretty much nothing is the same. As for language, people just kept the language they had and did their best to rebuild their home unless the place was completely uninhabitable, in which case they moved (nomads, gypsies).

    So which group of people founded the village? Where they... South African? Brazilian? I'm trying to think who would be close enough to build a village in what was the Atlantic.

    I was thinking that a large band of travelers founded the place back when there was a still a river. So I guess mainly Americans, but there would most likely be other folks of different races in the group as well. Hope this helps.
