I don't like having "Olo" in the name. We know we're a clan and others know we're a clan. I think it just adds too much IMO.

I personally think that we should be mentioning the fact that we are from Terra. The reason that I suggested the two I did (Not to mention the fact that as Shaman I'm a bit of a Gaian spiritualist myself XD).

I think that Olo' should be in there, just so that the word Clan can actually be in the name of the Tribe. Just a thought.

Usually when I use the word "of," it is in the context of ownership. Like, this is Gaia's tribe, or the Tribe of Gaia. The actual word for of is... I don't have a clue XD ^_^;;;;

Can't ya just use the -yä suffix as it shows ownership?

so clan of dreamhunters would be Olo'Ayuniltayronuyä

not sure if the -yä would mutate or not though correct me if it does :)

Woah! That is a mouth full! I guess you could say it with or without the Olo. And if you said it w/o the olo then you wouldn't need the yä. So we have a long and a short for that name!

Tute Eywayä

I don't know, I'm just thinking of names.

This was ironic- we have a foreign exchange student at our school. His name is literally 'Eywa.' Sound, spelling and all. Just not the deitie part.

I think it would be either "aysute" or "sute" for people.

Oh yeah, I forgot.

Aysute Eywayä

I'm keeping a hold of some of the language now, about 15 actual words that I know now. I'm trying to do the simple stuff on memory, thus I made my mistake.

Yeah, I constantly make grammatical mistakes mainly because I haven't even tried to learn any grammar besides how to make a word plural. I've been focusing 100% on vocab (200 words memorized both ways!!)

I have the ASG. It just doesn't go in depth with the language.

[Txon, aysute]

And it's sorted the Na'vi way, not the english way.

How about we shorten it to "Txon, sute"? Unless I'm greatly mistaken, that is also grammatically correct and it's shorter.

Olo'Gaiayä

How do you even pronounce that? I haven't had trouble with ANY other words, just this one :P. Heck, I can even do Frommers favorite word w/o problem.
