New EAP name suggestions (IDEA 5)

Hello,

Here some name suggestions:

Michail Juravlev:
Athena (not related to Delphi and Borland)

Dmitry Kashin, Alexey Efimov:
Valhall
+
In Asgard he had a palace called Valhall (wrongly transliterated in English
in its genetival plural form, Valhalla), where fallen warriors spent the
afterlife in an orgy of feasting and fighting, preparing for the Last Battle
which would spell the Doom of the Gods (Ragnarok).

Thanks!

How about Ragnarok (as in your blurb)?? I've always thought that was pretty cool.

A few suggestions, all of them related to vinkings or viking mithology:

Ran, the name of a mythic viking figure related to sea and navigation. The name of her husband, Aegir, sounds good too: "Ran, a stormy spirit of the sea, reflected the shifting moods of the ocean, sometimes helpful, sometimes harmful. She gathered sailors in her drowning net and dragged them down to the depths of the sea. There, with her husband Aegir, she entertained her victims in her gleaming coral caves, which were lit by the shimmering gold of the sea. Ran loved gold, named the Flame of the Sea, after the fluorescent quality of Nordic waves. Sailor's seeking Ran's favor wisely pocketed some gold for the trip."

Gokstad or Oseberg, the name of two real viking ships discovered in Norway in 1880 and 1903, respectively, and that helped historians to discover how the vikings built their boats. Given the history of EAP using ship names like Aurora, Ariadna and Pallada, these two sounds good to me.

Ah yes, I like Valhall too -

Whether or not it's translated into English correctly, "Valhalla" sounds better to the ear than does Valhall ... whatever the case,

1st Valhall (Vahalla)
2nd Athena
3rd Mjollnir (the name of Thor's hammer)

And just for the sake of it:

"Varyag", the name of the current russian pacific fleet flagship

"Marduk", the name of the race that created the Zentraedi in the Macross anime. The name of the mothership for the race.

"Rama", the name of a habitat ship in Athur C. Clarke "Rendezvous with Rama".

I'll try to find a few more cool ship names later :)

1. Astyanax
2. Andromache

In the spirit of the new Troy movie. And because Astyanax is such a cool name.

Cool!

anime. The name of the mothership for the race.


You got me interested enough to look up the origin. The name belonged
to a Babylonian god originally.

"Marduk, literal meaning "bull calf of the sun," the son of Ea,
apparently a god of magic and incantations from early times."

<http://www.themystica.org/mythical-folk/articles/marduk.html>

"Rama", the name of a habitat ship in Athur C. Clarke "Rendezvous with Rama".


This came from a semi-divine folk hero of India.

"The Ramayana is one of the two great Indian epics. The Ramayana tells
about life in India around 1000 BCE and offers models in dharma. The
hero, Rama, lived his whole life by the rules of dharma; in fact, that
was why Indian consider him heroic. When Rama was a young boy, he was
the perfect son. Later he was an ideal husband to his faithful wife,
Sita, and a responsible ruler of Aydohya. "Be as Rama," young Indians
have been taught for 2,000 years; "Be as Sita."

The best, IMO, come from mythology. Lots of great stuff in the cultural
gold mine.

Genesis:

If the last 'naming' thread with its dozens of bright ideas is any indication, IDEA users are a bunch of dummies who can't name their way out of a wet paper bag.

I'm glad to see that some things don't change, as half the suggestions in this thread already are some of the following:

1) Wrong theme
2) Sound ridiculous
3) Have no concept of continuity
4) Demonstrate a shocking disregard to all existing names

So I guess Tiger is a bad idea then :)

What's the Russian translation for "Eclipse Sucks"? If it's not too long, then that would be my recommendation.

Luckily you're here to raise the bar.

If I've got to stick with the greek goddess thang, then I'd go with Minerva or Hera. If not, I'd suggest Cordelia. It is admittedly Shakespearian rather than Greek, but it is female and sounds vaguely thematic. It's also the middle name of my daughter, who charmed Sergey when he came to visit last weekend, so I've got an edge.

Its also a good Buffy/Angel reference ;) And she did become a
princess/godess/worshipped beauty in Angel....

Now that Pallada has already broken the "A." pattern, we should at least stick with ".a", so my suggestion would be "Emma" (even though it is the name of a famous locomotive rather than a ship).

"Marketka"
...related to Mikhail Bulgakov's book "Mistr a Marketka" (The Master and Margarita)

You need to be more creative. If Eclipse is the blocking of the sun,
something that translates to like "sunrise" would be good.

There are many variants but it's not good name for IDEA :)

Well, we already had 'aurora' :)

OT: if you care, there is a word for 'dawn' common for all slavonic
languages. It's 'Zarya' in Bussian ('Zora' in Bulgarian, Macedonian,
Serbian and Croatian)

Whether or not it's translated into English correctly, "Valhalla" sounds better to the ear than does Valhall ... whatever the case,

1st Valhall (Vahalla)
2nd Athena
3rd Mjollnir (the name of Thor's hammer)

How about Kostchtche, a not so famous semi-divine mythical beast with a
big hammer? (And seven consecutive consonants in his name)
Rule #1: People have to be able to pronounce it and spell it. Mjollnir
is cool, but seriously...

Rob

BTW: Athena all the way. Arguably the best Greek god(dess). Wise,
powerful, intelligent, and generally well-rounded. Just what our next
EAP should be.

Or possibly Homer, which may be confused with the famous poet, but we
all know which Homer it really is. Mmm, donuts....

Do you know that filthy/bad/dirty language is called "argo language" in
Russian? Maybe because argonauts cursed a lot during their journey ;) It is
sad, but "argo" has a bad connotation for me now.

I mean some exclamation in case of your team co-worker commit some not
consistent stuff, that broken all entire build :) In English you just say,
"Why you did that?". But in Russian you just may ask using Hera word :))
