Translation of my name
« on: February 06, 2017, 06:44:36 am »
kaltxì you all!

I kinda need help with translation of my name to Na'vi, my andromedan name is Ni Vhéari which means green meadow. I'm not sure if my real name would even translate into Na'vi since it's not based on english at all but it's origin is from Karelia

I posted this on Tree Of Souls too to get the best answer possible

My attempt:

Eana txayo or Txayo aean

Rìkeana txayo or Txayo arìkean

txayo mean plain (we have not word for meadow exactly)
ean means green or also blue
rìkean mean leaf green

As said on Discord before, you could simply transcribe your name from
Ni Vhéari to Ni Veari.

Translation attempt by me would be similar to Toliman's, but I wouldn't use rikean (leaf green), since leaf colors on Pandora can vary from a more blue-ish to a bright green-ish tint.
So zeswaean* or to be on the safe side zeswana ean (grass-like green) would be maybe more close to a meadow-green imho.

For randomly but valid generated names, try Tirea Aean's awesome name generator: http://tirea.learnnavi.org/material/generate.php

Either these two, but other options still exist. What is meadows? Grassy plain or place, so we can say:
txayo lezeswa / lezeswa txayo
tseng lezeswa / lezeswa tseng

First option looks better, IMO, as tseng is quite generic term.
As meadows are green by default, I didn't add color to my translation, but if you want it exactly written: rìkeana txayo lezeswa.
