  • Better Names

    I just completed a sci-fi action script. Some of my friends told me that the alien's names sound too funny . Does anyone have a better idea about the names?
    Tkanks in advance.

    Princess of Planet Gom, Ishtar.
    King of Gom, ANDROM
    King of Bleak, VOLKER
    King of Shadow, GORGEOUS and his counsels LIMEN, SPAGHETTI, and GUCCI

    www.kabalarians.com - Great place for character names.

    www.babycenter.com/babyna...ings.jhtml - A better place that gives you names when you give it meanings.

    Also, you don't need really weird names. Think of:
    - Spock
    - Han and Chewi
    - Ripley

    This is my ear's take on your names:
    Princess of Planet Gom, Ishtar. [Gom seems fine. Ishtar sounds like a guy even if it's not in it's original language. I suggest Isha (eesha)].
    King of Gom, ANDROM [sounds like a robot. I'd like Ander].
    King of Bleak, VOLKER [sounds good]
    King of Shadow, GORGEOUS and his counsels LIMEN, SPAGHETTI, and GUCCI [unless you're going for a humorous angle, forget "Gorgeous". "Gorgose" would be better. "Limen/lemon taste of sprite?" "Milen" would be better, as would "Spag" and "Gooch" rather than the handbag.

      BTW, if you get it fixed by the 13th, send it to the Slamdance/Sci-Fi contest. www.slamdance.com

        Those sound pretty wierd to me...just not as.

        Whatever you do, dont name ANYONE Jack because it's a boring as hell, unoriginal as toast, overused, newbie, @#%$ name.

        Good luck

        Thanks for the heads up on the sci fi contest too.

          Thank you all. Those names help me out.

          There's a Jack in my script. I should get rid of his name.

          Thanks again.
