Question [Hell]Hell needs you ;]

Copied from the Hellband forum :

So,

the reason that my muse left me for Hellband ( it's all coming back as
I fire back the editor )is that on the second floor of the mage shop
there is now a mage guild. There are ranks to progress in ( just rank
I to VI in roman numerals ). The ranks are just gimmicks to get to
your spell books. Because there are so many spell realms I've had
several feedbacks that people are just scumming the lowest dungeon
floors for weeks until they find the last book for their realm. This
is of course unacceptable, so I devised the mage guild where other
guild members might offer to trade their spellbooks ( which you want )
for your spell books ( which because the RNG hates you are off the
wrong realm ).

It all started innocently, I generated for each wizard a race and
spell casting class that is likely to have the offered book ( with
proper derived sub class name for that spellbook ) and saw how
horribly horrible the name generator was.
Basically all silly Middle Earth names.

So I decided to create a name generator for each race, and the
'research' and dulness of it all just got me brain dead.
Still, I want to finish it and I refuse to have the crap name
generator, so I need a tiny push ( or shove ) in the right direction.

/* Thomas, Peter, Paul , James , John , George , Matteus ,Marc ,
filip , Luke*/
static char *italian_male_firstnames[] = { "Tommaso" , "Pietro" ,
"Paolo" , "Giacomo" , "Giovanni" , "Giorgio" , "Matteo" , "Marco" ,
"Filippo" , "Lucas" , "Dante" , "Arcolana"};
static char *italian_female_firstnames[] = { "Beatrice" , "Deianira" ,
"Lucia" , "Penelope" , "Piccarda" , "Rachel" , "Carlotta" , "Carla"};
static char *italian_last_names[] = { "da Casalodi" , "dei
Bonacolsi" , "da Siena" , "Aldobrandi" , "dei Malavolti" , "Andalo" ,
"d'Arezzo" , "de'Mozzi" , "di Carignano" , "Argenti" , "da
Sant'Andrea" , "Berti" , "Brunelleschi" , "Donati" , "Bruni" };

These are the Italian ones, all the last names are from Dante's work,
except for Carla Bruni
If anybody knows of nice/famous Italian names ( pre 1550 ) that were
in vogue in those days, please tell me.

I need the same for Gipsy ??? ( I have like 0 knowledge on gipsy
names )
Nordic names ( that should be reasonable, I'll steal from norseband )
Atlantian I think I will still Egyptian names, needs research as well
Dwarven I will keep
Elven I will keep
Ogre should be french or gernan names
Troll should be same generator as nordic
Giant should be either a generator based on biblical giants ( are
there enough ? ) or greek mythos giants
Titans obviously from greek mythos
Nephilim I have ( Judaic, I quite like the results )
Vampires would have Karpatian names ( I dont know where to start )
Werewolf would have german names
Skeletons would have British names I presume, maybe I can borrow from
steamband
Mummies would have Egyptian names
Spectres could be any human race generator

Seelie Fae I should steal from Steam
Gnomes I dont know at all
Leprechauns should share with Seelie Fae
Kobolds should be german or something unique

All devil spawns should follow angelic names, which are ok

Elders are Cthulhu like, which is fine. A last hidden remnant of it's
roots.
The Guardians have dwarf names now, I wonder what Steam uses for its
mecha's.
Horros obviously have the same names as Elders.

So, if any one feels inspired with feedback or urls with good lists or
anything, lemme know.

Cheers,
T.
