|X||Nickname or familiar term||Sis||Used in place of entire name.|
|Role||the brawler||never with capitals.|
|2/X||Hero title||The Brawler||Written in Lowerspeech kana or with capitals.|
|3||Place of origin||of Fhurai||Not used if there's a hero title|
Thus, given names always come first, followed by the family name or a role, title, or origin. If a felin has a heroic title, they may be identified with just that.
Cier can thus be identified as just "Cier", "Cier Inadel", "Cier Inadel of Fhurai", "Cier the brawler", "Cier the Brawler", "The Brawler"... but rarely "Cier Inadel the Brawler", which is only used to be very specific.
[top]Traditional given names
Traditionally, given names always end in certain gender-specific suffixes. Which suffix specifically is a matter of style and taste. Base names may be nouns, but there's no rule.
Male suffixes: -lir, -rth, -ler, -rith, -lair, -len, -rath, -rthir, -vren, -thin.
Female suffixes: -rae, -ri, -mine, -rthi, -ne, -vra, -aie, -rith, -rthir, -ran.
Blessed suffixes: any of the above.
Given names don't have to use a traditional suffix.
For both given names and family names, traditional or otherwise, nouns may be deformed a bit. For example, "Inadel" is a historical variant of "indel", as its dictionary entry indicates.
