The Central Continent Storr Skogr ( means great forrest )
The Southern Tropical Atolls - Heitr Eyland ( hot island )
The Central Highlands Island - Elding Fyst ( means dawn desire )
The Volanic Forests Island - Vandliga Frami / Blakkr Frami ( means completely courage/ Dark courage )
The Frozen Northern Continent - Ofraer Hamarr ( means barren cliff )


#3
  1. Ituna
  2. Glynil
  3. Eloa
  4. Volcos
  5. Ilisia

I am dibsing Kaveh as the name for the island chain. Jsyk.


#5
  1. Ragenia
  2. Kalimdar
  3. Grimbalta
  4. Searing Isle
  5. Nordren

#6

I dibs Beloklavia, Belklav, Belarctic or Mrazovya for the ice continent. It would just mean white land in most Slavic languages. I’m also down for naming the tropical region Kaveha


#7

Shat… totally not wow xD

Okay, here’s mine:

  1. The Central Continent = Icheleya (inspired by Icalave)
  2. The Southern Tropical Atolls = Kaveya/Kavehya (because Kaveh)
  3. The Central Highlands Island = Kallaron
  4. The Volanic Forests Island = Acheron
  5. The Frozen Northern Continent = Vallanore

#8

If we’re going with a theme:

  1. Essos/Westeros
  2. The Summer Isles
  3. Isle of Faces
  4. Valyria
  5. Thenn

If we’re going originals only, then:

  1. Panagea
  2. Akua
  3. Lerwick
  4. Maranya/Kamatayan
  5. Futharcia/Futhartica

#9

Kaveh is in the savanna between Ebon jungle and the mesa


#10

Because that’s where the faction will start off at, not where it originated from in lore.


#11
  1. Mittiga - From the german word for middle
  2. Südya - From the german word for south
  3. Calledia - From Caledonia
  4. Antinesi
  5. Morro

#12

Just a suggestion guys, maybe no “special” characters, they are cool, but they can make things a bit more complicated, and make them harder to spell and write, and pronounce. :slight_smile:


#13

Also, please don’t lift anything directly from another source. Somewhat original stuff. :slight_smile:


#14

Another suggestion for the northern continent: Severnia or Severnya. “Sever” is Russian for North


#15

define special characters


#16

You’re a special character.


#17

Some continent naming inspiration and backstory for our own world’s continents:


#18

And Zealandia, the new sub-continent they’ve decided exists, is named after New Zealand, which is named after Zeeland, a province of the Netherlands, which means low-lands as most of the country is below sea level. I have no clue where Zeeland came from.


#19

Zeeland quite literally comes from the Dutch word for sea, which is zee. Appropriate, since it’s a province made up entirely of peninsulas and river estuaries.


#20

Also, might I propose, a totally not France-inspired set:

  1. Galison
  2. Esperance
  3. Terramedié
  4. Feumontagne
  5. Froidon
