Since Im working on my generators for the Forbidden Lands (found here) I often look at the names in the material by Fria Ligan. I dont want to generate names that I have invented but rather names I have invented that sound, look and feel like the names in the books.
So looking at the names of the rost brothers. The names (in swedish) that I have found so far are: Zygofer, Zytera, Pyronax, Kartorda, Feroxa and Teramalda. These are the only names in the books that have the letters z and x. I think Kartorda and Teramalda sounds like the generic nordic fantasy names you find throughout the books. These two names could have been names of dwarves or whatever. The other names hold some clues though as to how I want to generate rost brother names that are unique yet sound like the names in the books.
I think the names have a slight roman sound. Maybe it is the letter x that does it. Im not sure but I think that rost brother names that are inspired by roman names could work. What do you think? And lots of letters z and x of course.
Then there is the name Feroxa. Fer as in Ferrum which is latin for iron. Not a coincidence I think. So names should often have the syllable fer or ferr as a nod to this. Or other syllables that sound like iron, rust or the colors of iron and rust: grey and red.
Then there is the name Heme which I think comes from Hemoglobin, the protein inside red blood cells. So names could definatley have parts that are connected to this: hem hemo, heme
Thoughts? Soon there will be Rust brother names available in the generator! And Rust brother village names too.
