also I gotta think of a name for the good people hummm.
Good scifi names usually have a bit of history to them...
For instance, what sort of things would the good guys say about them, and how might that have become a name? Sometimes descriptive names can be good.
On the other hand, what sort of things do they think about themselves? If they have their own language, what sort of sounds would it have, and why? What would they want to call themselves? If they called themselves the head-splitters, and they used alot of very gutteral sounds in their language, how would head splitters be translated? how would that name be shortened?
Maybe the names have something to do with where they come from? Just as an example, I heard Greenland got it's name, because the people who named it didn't want settlers to think that it was too cold there. And that's all the name is- green and land. Sometimes simple things like that can be effective.
I might be able to give you more specific ideas if i knew more about the people, but I hope that helps.
Yes, I'm a geek. So what.
