Hello Alysse! Thankyou for replying to my post!

Yes, my person will be spending a lot of time in Naurooth, and she does indeed get involved with a kuglimz.  grin

I’ve been having a difficult time figuring out a believable and authentic history for my character though, and I’ve changed it about ten times already. Here’s my plot-outline so far:

She lives with the melad’rhim, marries and has her first child. Their tribe comes across the arthyron a few years later, and she, her husband and son leave with them in search of adventure and safer lands, hoping to later migrate south. When they land in Naurooth, her husband is killed. She raises her son in the town with a kuglimz man who she has fallen in love with. 10 years later she has a child with him. When he dies 40 years later, and her two children have moved on, she decides explore the rest of the world.

Do you see any major problems before I elaborate on it?  And does the name still work?

Thankyou so much for your input and support. Its greatly appreciated. ^^

I would like the character i'm making to adopt a name that combines words from both styrash and kuglimz'seitre. (firstly, is this even allowed?)

I've had a look at the basic principles for each language and browsed through the dictionaries, and these are the words i want to use:
helvíl (wanderer, in styrash)
firot (to leave, in kuglimz)
ak (loyal/true, in kuglimz)
The concept behind her name is kinda contradictory; she left her tribe, the melad'rhim, to seek a safer life for her children. She did not, however, forsake the tribe and still holds loyal to her home even though she is currently wandering around... if that makes sense...
Is it a good premise for a name?

When i combined the words i followed the principles for Kuglimz-seitre, putting the noun before the adjectives and came up with Helvil'firot'ak, which i roughly translate to 'wanderer (who) left (in) loyalty'
please tell me if i've broken some rules or if i've completely missed the language and what the actual translation would be.

thank you :)
