Well, if you play Star Citizen I'm a member of Clan Solus there. other than that I just pulled it out of my shebs lol Took the One from Dark One. One = Solus so it just takes every word in the meaning of your name and mashed it haphazardly into a name and clan Very Happy
Hey there I have another question for you, this time a more grammatical one. So I'm looking for a name for my space ship and I like Avenger (big Marvel fan). So I looked up the Mando word for Avenge and that's Gra'tuar. Now I have this big extensive grammar guide for Mando'a which told me that to change a verb into a noun you need to change the ending of the verb.
The example given was "to run"
which is viinir (VEEN-eer).
To change it into 'runner' you needed to remove the '-eer' sound at the end and replace it with an 'oo/uu' sound. so it becomes 'viinur' (VEEN-oor).
However this rule was only mentioned when you use verbs ending with '-eer' so this makes gra'tuar something of an irregular verb...
How would I apply this rule on 'Avenge?'
Using the rule anyway would make it gra'tuur (grah-TOOOOR) which seems a bit weird (unless it's just pronounced 'grah-TOOR') any help? Very Happy

No need for help, you've got it figured out. Gra'tuur would be the proper replacement though I think it would be (grah-tuur) it may come down to personal preference.
