Hey, I wanted to write that this is a Warcraft name, Silfer, but somehow forgot that;)  Yeah, Warcraft name it is.

Also think the Celeron computer guys might have liked such a name as well... Trying another short adjustment, which sounds very good I think:

Caeltheron

This link is not so centered on christianity, more on astrology

Caeltheron sounds good, but maybe the name should somehow be linked to "Tharia", after all it is given in the Tharian tongue. It should not necessarily contain a 'San', since that part of 'Santharia' came from king Santhros, and it's only the name of one kingdom.

How about switching the ae around?

Calthaeron? Or Caltharon?
Caelthaeron doesn't look good for some reason.
The ending could of course be -ia instead of -on.

Any name starting with Ch looks good but most visitors and readers would be tempted to pronounce it like the ch in church. And that would sound *really* wrong.

Edit: I just noticed that 'Caltharia' would sound like a mere modification of Santharia. Maybe Calthaeria, Calthaerion or Calthaeron would be less obviously connected to the name.
(And of course we would need a translation of 'cal' and why the humans would use it as a prefix before their name for the world.)

Second edit: Calthaeron and all other combinations don't exist on the web, at least I didn't find them with google, so I guess it's not used anywhere else. Caeleron is used in another RP-like fantasy site.

And a third edit: Just saw that cál is Styrash for land, so Caltharon or Calthaeria would be something like 'lands of Tharia'. But would the humans adopt the elven 'cál'? And the elves would not call it the 'Tharian lands'...

Ok, guys and girls, we need to decide this till Sunday. That's why we need to hold a vote asap. Propose the following: As voting in the Voting section isn't ideal because of the fact that we would have to decide on 4 options in advance and that is hardly possible with such a huge amount of proposals. Therefore I'd say:

a) I'll make a new thread tomorrow called "World Name Voting" here in the General Discussions.
b) Until then you still have time to make proposals in this thread here.
c) Only Santharian members are allowed to vote (people listed in the team section).
d) Voting looks like this: Everybody decides on a ranking of 3 names he/she picks from this thread: the first one gets 4 points, the second one 2 and the third one 1. At the end we sum it up with as many people as have voted till approx. Sunday evening.
e) In order to prevent that people only vote for their own proposed names I'd say you should only be allowed to vote for one name you proposed yourself.

Does that sound workable? Any problems with that concept? If note, take the time to got through this thread and see what fits you best, ok? I'll also mail members which aren not that regularly at the Forum like Quellion or Faugar so that they can give their vote as well, okeydokey?

I will be back not before Sunday evening, about  8pm CET. I hope I have a chance to vote - if the decision between two is difficult!

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
