Ok, here we go with the Santharian world name voting... Rules have already been described in the other thread, so here's only a short summary:

a) Only Santharian members are allowed to vote (people listed in the team section).
b) Voting looks like this: Everybody decides on a ranking of 3 names he/she picks from the proposals thread - please go through the thread in detail and make your decision, at least you may have to deal with this name as long as Santharia exists... The first name you vote for receives 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.
c) In order to prevent that people only vote for their own proposed names you should only be allowed to vote for one name you proposed yourself.

Note: Should there be a high amount of votes for the more or less same name with only small variations we'll probably decide in another vote on the specific variation. But let's see for now how the vote turns out...

Note 2: Don't bother about what the name means for now in which language, we can always decide that later or adjust existing vocabulary to make it fit.

I start with my 3 names:

HUMAN WORLD NAME VOTE

1. Caeltheron (4)
2. Calereth (2)
3. Caldain (1)


(concerning 2: would favour the Caelereth adjustment though)

Oh, and we have a bonus question as well: Currently the name "Aér'ái'chán" is used for the Styrásh (elvish) name of the world. As I have to upload the whole web anyway in order to change the name, we may also decide if we can make the elvish form more readable/pronounceable by shortening it a bit (e.g. to Aerchan, Aeyrchan etc.) The old form would then still exist as an archaic from, but would only be used in texts like the Cárp'dosía and other old tomes. Please give your opinion here as well: yes, no, indifferent, and if yes, please let us know which variation of such a short version you'd prefer.

So here's my personal opinion on this matter:

ELVEN WORLD NAME VOTE

Indifferent


Thanx in advance for your votes!

Personally, I’d rather see it NOT changed, but if a change must be made I like :
Aeyrchan

Human Name:
1 Santharia
2. Aerichan
3. Brownieland? Just kidding. Any of the options based on Aer'i'chan.

Elven Name:
Yes. Get rid of the quote marks, so those of us in Asia can read the name :)

Long time no see :)  Much of what I've been doing recently uses the same part of the brain that Santharia does, so it's hard to deal with Santharia on top of everything else. I'll pop into a different forum soon and let you all know my recent news........good to see all of you again :)

Well, I'm in favour of Aerichan or something similar..

Note that we already have a province called Caael'heroth, sounds too much like Caelereth

1) Aerichan
2) Santharia
3) Tealpelow (or similar scrabbling with tolkien/lewis/peake)
Maybe Loteawael

Yaay!
A democracy!
Or something.
*shakes head*

1.Caelereth
2.Aerichan (lack of them funky marks, I don't really understand them)
3.Mod ( just cause it's so steenkin' cool!)

Elven
Uhm. Classic spelling with tha marks is fine. Elves know the language, so why change it? Though if a Human was to say it, they'd probably maul it to the degenerate Aerichan.
