Yes, well, I'm just giving all the names that I find. Whether you put them in or not is a totally different question ;)

Niccoli has a good point about names having regional variations.

Also with sir names since they often had something to do with the occupation we should incllude these sir names

Smith
Amanter
Dragonamanter
Dragonslayer
Mage
Wizard

Those are just some suggestions off the top of my head they don't necessarily have to describe the person who has the name now for example if their was an Andrus Wizard he wouldn't have to have any magical abilities but an ancestor of his would have had.

Similar to the way in which we have people with names like 'tanner' and 'green'....

Art - that IS what I was trying to say, by the way....

The 'o' endings are very far from 'nordic' sounding - but we already have some Avennorians with 'o'-ending names.  So for now those should not be incorporated into the Avennorian syllable system - but rather than just ignoring them, we can begin to say 'names that sound like THIS are probably from the XXX tribe' and group the more italianate, latinate syllables/sounds/names under a second tribe.   We don't need to go back and change the existing 'Terlano' - nor do we need to put a footnote by his name saying "*Terlano's name is influenced by the XXX tribe's linguistic heritage..." - but we should avoid using 'o' endings for Avennorian characters from here on in.

And we should probably get a general feel for the other tribes already, to manually define their sound...
