OK, so I'm six years late to this party. I made some names, and looked at the monstrosities others posted, and noticed that names with ll or rr are not appearing. Just happens that I'm rather partial to those "vowels". Looked at the PHP code provided, and see that they are not listed. The function getNucleus does have question marks instead of ll and rr at the 80 and 85 tests, so I'm wondering if someone could fix those? If that's too hard at this late date, let me know, and I'll redo the PHP generator into Python for my own use. Would be nice to fix the public generator, though.

Thanks,

Wrrtll

It requires extra coding because ll and rr can't start syllables and be on their own unlike vowels.

Could you or someone else point me to the rules so I can complete this generator?

Irayo,

  Hey Wrrtll, thanks for jumping on the name generator!  For more language info, check the syllable structure details in section 2.1.4 of the grammar document at  https://files.learnnavi.org/docs/horen-lenavi.pdf.  This document by Wm Annis is pretty much a complete and detailed description of the phonetics, grammar and structure of Na'vi.

Thanks for the replies. Found the rules just where you said, they were very helpful. Kind of went nuts and put together a bunch of Na'vi language tools in Python, my favorite for this sort of programming fun. Also made all 8,698 possible syllables, just for grins. I'm putting together a PHP environment to update the name generator, got Eclipse downloaded and up, just have to get an HTML server with PHP running securely. Should have a more complete name generator in a couple of weeks, if life doesn't interfere.

Irayo,

Wrrtll
