Name of Sim4

Post by Jamie Palisades »

We have an approved plan for Sim4. It's an extension to Colonia Nova, to the west.
So far we are referring to it as "CN-West."
When CDS buys the sim island from LL, we must request the official name.
This is going to happen soon.
What should it be?
"Nyah Nyah Des" probably wouldn't look good in the sales brochures.

Guild members pointed out to me that the RA probably should act to approve the name. Or maybe it's Alexicon's job? In any case, let's hear some suggestions. If there are several good ideas, presumably we can hold a poll, or talk about it in a meeting. And we should have backups: sometimes sim names are rejected. In any case, we need to act -- this decision literally is an obstacle to ordering the sim.

Oooh, can I help name it?

Pick me, pick me!!

I was thinking: Fountain Head, with a sim placard emblazoned with its official animal, the Unicorn!

All silliness and quixotic, CDS-political Randian inferences implied and intended...

Jamie sighs, slowly, pushes a few buttons, and trains the giant, Swiss-manufactured antiaircraft guns secreted away in the Alpes bavaroises, away from Plush Alpha, and back to the NW, towards Caledon, in case Des the Despot sends Zoe Connolly overhead to our peaceful skies with a bunch of leaflet drops or some damn thing. Peace is SO fragile.

Let's have some fun with this!
1. Let's stay with Latin words.
2. I know a lot of Latin words but never took the class, so would someone who knows how the language works play with these combinations and put them in proper tense?
3. Let's go for poetic and symbolic.

I put a few interesting words in a free translator and see some potential... anyone want to play with them?

Not bad Jamie... though thematically/geographically... Halle Westphalia perhaps? or Louvain-la-Neuve to introduce new elements of confusion, or Bayreuth which fits more the NFS theme/era but at least is German.... only planned city wikipedia returns for ancient rome is that little town of Constantinople... and i'm not sure that fits with any of the master plans!

i like Locus Amoenus... it describes the feel the sim will have, i think.

Eudaimonia now!
