    The Language of Strangers

    Genre of Story: Fantasy Adventure

    Time Period/Location: Two countries: Vineland, a dominant nation divided in half by a mountain range, rainforest on one side and desert on the other; and Fulsur, a mountainous and slightly volcanic peninsula currently occupied by Vineland. Fulsur is on the verge of a revolution against Vineland.
    Technology is pre-industrial revolution. Like, there's guns and printing presses, but they're still kind of old-fashioned.

    Brief Plot: Here's my vague summary blurb:
    "She set out across the ocean for the adventure of a lifetime and got exactly what she wanted — but in a way she never expected.
    On their first day on a new continent, their own having been isolated for five hundred years, Sonam and her friend Nelia meet a princess and are kidnapped. It's not the arrival anyone expected, but they soon discover that this is only the start of a deep conspiracy surrounding a rebel liberation movement, and with the princess and the son of a rebel leader as new friends in this foreign land, their involvement is inevitable. Sonam narrowly missed war once, but this time, she finds herself at the very center."
    This is a sequel/spin-off for a previous story.

    What are the naming laws: I have no idea! I had a good system in place where Sonam and Nelia came from, but with this one, I'm just winging it so far. I guess these two nations are kind of European-esque in their naming traditions. Here are the three main characters I've named so far:
    Amalie (Vineland, f)
    Kellan (Fulsur, m)
    Corala (Vineland, f)

    What I Need: I need some names for family members and minor characters from both nations, so this is really just a request for brainstorming help based on what I already have. Naming styles are pretty similar due to the two areas' political and cultural ties. Feel free to make stuff up. I just need inspiration. Let me see what you can come up with! Go!

    Hmm, I like this limited form. I've been trying to simplify it for a while so we can have a basic one and in depth ones.

    @nooshi Oo thank you that's perfect! I can already see a few I like and a few I can tweak. Thanks so much!
    @renrose Glad to be of help? Haha I just picked and chose what I thought was needed since my request wasn't one of the presets.
