Na'vi Names
« on: July 16, 2020, 03:56:13 am »
Hi there!

I'm super new to learning Na'vi and I wanted to create some characters for a fanfiction story. Does anyone have any advice for coming up with names for them? Any tips on how to come up with 'correct' Na'vi names?

Thanks all! :)

Hello and welcome!

Kaltxì ma MalllladeImaginaire ulte zola'u nìprrte'!

We have a generator of Na'vi names:
https://tirea.learnnavi.org/index.php?p=generator

I was going to suggest this generator as well :)

The structure of a full Na'vi name is

If female:
    {First name} te {Family name} {Mother's first name}'ite

If male:
    {First name} te {Family name} {Father's first name}'itan

And that's the format the generator creates too

The other way of creating names requires knowing the sounds of Na'vi and how sounds are allowed to come together in syllables.

Wow, thanks guys!! That's super helpful, thank you! :)

Do the names generated have a meaning or anything? Is it possible to create 'grammatically correct' names with meanings or is that too complicated for a beginner?

OH! Right, the links in the first post of that thread. This is indeed what it was.

I have fixed the links in that post. :)
