Thanks, 38.

And, Ruusan, how do you figure out what's your Elvish name?
Title: Names in Mando'a
Post by: Ruusaan on February 02, 2007, 03:56:29 PM
you'd have to know what your name meant then translate it using the vast amounts of Elvish Word documents you have on your computer. at least that's how i did it...i could translate yours if you like.

Timothy>meaning "honor God"> Erutáron  (literally "lofty God")

EDIT: nearly a year later, I close my parentheses. ^_^

Erm...Christian? lol. Actually, in Greek, Christian means "little Christ," but there are some other meanings given in the modern world...
-a Christian
-of the Christian faith
-follower of the Son of God (in Elvish it's a mouthfull: Aphaderuiondur  lol)

...so that's what I've found. Good luck!

I split the names discussion and gave it its own thread.

My Mando'a name is Cyare... it means 'beloved', same as Amy. :)

If you don't know what your name means, you can try a site like this one (http://www.behindthename.com/)!

Dwayne> meaning  "little and dark" also "wagon maker" > since "wagon maker' really wouldn't translate well...i suppose this is what you have to work with...

ca-night
ne'tra-black
'ika-the affectionate "little" suffix
Netika?
Caika?
I guess it's open to interpretation.

Andrew> meaning "manly">so I'm thinking Jagyc, which is "male" in Mando'a.

I've had little luck translating my own name because there are no words for "grace" or "God" in Mando'a, so I'll just stick with Ruusaan. ;)

Thanks Ruusaan. I think Netika is the best name for me (Dwayne> Anglicized form of the Gaelic name Dubhan which means "little and dark", derived from dubh "dark, black" combined with a diminutive suffix.)

I've been looking for someting like that as well since my name means God's grace, but have yet to find anything close. I think the dictionary is going to be updated in March, so maybe there'll be something then.

How about Alexander? (In both Elvish and Mando'a if possible)

Alexander> "defender of men" > Beriadan in Elvish,  ara'novor is (to) "obstruct," "defend," or "blockade," so maybe like, Aranov? If you remove the -or from the root of the verb, you'll generally get some kind of noun. (I think that made sense...)

Darren

The meaning of this name is not known for certain. It was first brought to popular attention by the American actor Darren McGavin (1922-2006). It could be from an Irish surname (which possibly means "great") or it could be a derivation of DARRYL.
another meanign is resourceful??

my name in chinese means little dragon in the sky

the closest I found was Daran>"little great one"> nothing i could come up with in Mando'a made any sense. they were all rather strange-sounding...middle name perhaps? or what you wish your name was? lol

Hey look, I found my spreadsheet!  XD 

I refuse to share my full name with the class, so let's use my nickname:

My nickname, Jai, is a Sanskrit name meaning "victory". 

So my Mando'a name would be Parjai.

...nice!

Well, my mon wanted Gwen for my middle name, so I;d match the "g" middle names of the rest of my family, but my dad won. lol. 

Ethel...I had a bit of a time with this, but I think I got close.

Ethel>meaning "noble"> (I looked for noble, and honorable, but wound up with honor. is that ok?) Ijaat in Mando'a.

Since Timothy means 'honouring God' in Mando'a it should be: Ijaat'ir Manda (Since Mando'ade don't believe in religion I'm substituting belief in race for it.) Perhaps I should lose the verb form... Ijaat Manda, Noble/Honour Man... not bad. :)

Tyler> meaning "tiler of roofs"> didn't find anything in Mando'a on that one...

Robert> meaning "bright fame" > "dral" bright, and I used "kote" for fame. There's reference to fame in a Mando drinking song, but I don't believe we get the word outright. "Kote lo'shebs'ul narit," is where it appears, and that's translated as "You can keep your glory." But  after further research into the translation, we find that you're being told where you can put it...so I'm thinking Dralkote?

Yes...I recently translated that myself, too.  :blush: Apparently there are a few Mando'ade out there with very interesting language.

My name...
Well. "Kathryn" is a form of "Katherine," which translates to "pure" in the modern form and..."each of the two" in the ancient. Closest I could come to pure is something like Adiik. But each of the two would be "solus be t'ad," I believe. So..."Solu'tad"?

EDIT: Apparently the drastic change between the forms is because of a saint with the name.

As for the Mando drinking song, anytime "insert", "into", and "shebs" are in the same line, it can't be too polite.  :blush:  My first response was that I was reading it way wrong...but there aren't too many other ways you can take that.

Something just occured to me. "Kote" is listed as being plural, a la "glories". So would it be Dralkot, then?

Hah. Well, it's not like we've ever seen it used in the singular sense.
If I remember correctly, kot is the singular and it means "strength" in Mando'a. So "glory" is really equivalent to "strengths" or "more than one strength"... which makes a certain amount of sense when you think about Mandalorians. :) (Glory meaning: Great honor, praise, or distinction; Something conferring honor or renown; A height of achievement, enjoyment, or prosperity.)

Forgive me if I'm taking liberties here, but could "misunderstood" be a synonym for esoteric? I could work with that in Mando'a. Or you could choose whatever meaning you like for your real name.

The Quenya is easier if I have your first name. I've got it all alphabetical.  :P Well, I take that back...it is easy if your name's on the list...I can still find it if it's not, but it takes longer.

Mando'a...

Manda-supreme, overarching, guardian-like
Aran-guard
Yaim-home

So...

Yai'manda
Yaim'aran
Manda'yaim
Mand'aim
Aran'yaim
Ara'im

Basically, you can move the beten around and switch the word order. Hope this helps. :)

~*Ruusaan <><

EDIT: Just downloaded the new excel file...there's a word for guardian! So, you can use one of the above listed or

Cabur-guardian/protector

As I said, my name is norwegian, so I'm not so sure you'll find it in a list... Anyways, it's Vegard. And I think Yaim'aran would be the correct, since
Ve=Home
Gard=Defender

Oh, and thanks for the effort, both of you!

Man, it's so rare anymore to meet people with Norwegian names, at least outside of Iowa. My dad was from Iowa, so I got one too. Gotta say 'Vegard' is cooler though... Still, I like my name's meaning, at least... Erik - Ruler of All. Not that I in any way want to rule all, it's just got this huge coolness factor. Of course, if I use a 'c' instead of a 'k', it means 'mighty warrior', but I can't remember in what language. I suppose that would be kotycverd, or dralverd... Still cool.

I'm surprised that "William" or some iteration their of hasn't come up already. It's one of the most common male names in the English language. It's even my name.

The root of William is the Old German 'Wilhem', roughly translates as "Will Helm" (will wear armor). Fairly appropriate for a Mandalorian, no? And ironic since I am a pacifist. Meh.

Well, I've got a question for you, oh wise linguists. Ever since Kal described the concept of "dar'buir" in TZ, the idea of a clone being "dar'vod" has been whacking me upside the head for attention.

My names Aditya....
ADITYA 
Gender: Masculine

Usage: Indian, Hindu Mythology

Other Scripts: आदित्य (Sanskrit)
 
Means "belonging to ADITI" in Sanskrit. This is a name for the seven (or eight) Hindu gods who are the children of Aditi. (Also the name of the Sun God)

Aditi: Means "boundless, entire" or "freedom, security" in Sanskrit. This is the name of the ancient Hindu mother goddess of the sky.

Well. I went looking, and the following words seemed relevant:

belonging to: be(of), or the common "owner'owned" form.

child of: ad be....

freedom: Well, "mav" is free. "not under command" is something along the lines of "nu'chur ke'gyce" (?), "no responsibility" =(?) "nu buirkan"...yeah, I dunno.

security: morut'yc (secure)

entire/whole: oyu'baat? (universe; stick a "yc/la" on and call it "universal" :D)

mother: buir

sky: kebii'tra

Wow Ruusaan you're very good at this. Also I'm sorry if you're in a jiffy because of me. I just wanted to find out my name in Mando'a. (I didn't yet by the way, there's no word for my name... :( *sobs*)

Joseph should be relatively easy, but do you know what Warta means by any chance?

Joseph> God will add> (still no word for "God...")
Majyce> mah.JEE.shay> "something extra"
Majycir> MAH.jee.shir> "to add"

I'll do some searching for Warta.

What about Kyle? It descends from a Celtic word "Caol" meaning a river channel or straight. So far I can relate it to Ocean: sho'cye, Water: pirun, and Choke: Ekur.

Any idea?

Yustapir>water (lit. water road, so I'd think that'd be close to a channel)

Very creative with the "choke," by the way. ;)

Wow!  May I ask what the name "Marina" would sound like in Mando'a?  It is originally old-Greek name means "born by the sea wave" or "off the sea".  I would really appreciate it.
Title: Re: Names in Mando'a
Post by: Kalira on May 10, 2007, 11:10:40 PM
Goten: birth
De: by
Sho'cye: Ocean

As for wave, it's not particularly necessary in "born by the sea wave", but I think this option would be particularly nice to use:
Long before "wave" was used, the main word was "crest", as in the top, the high point, etc. And crest is from the same root/original meeting as crown, "kyr'bes". So, the "crown of the sea", so to speak, is the crest of a wave. So...wave=kyr'bes. So to speak.  :shock: Well, it makes sense to me, and it makes sense etymologically, a word I'm totally going to force to exist.

So..."goten de shoy'ce kyr'bes".

Um...Got'oyce'bes? There's a tounge twister for you. Gote'deyc'kyr? Gote'deyc'bes? G'oyc'kyr? G'oyc'bes? There are more you could do. I like the G'oyc---- possibilities, or the Gote'---- ones.

Is this a good time to suggest nicknames? :D

Here's me trying to explain something...lol. Ask my bff, it's rather hilarious on the phone. If I understand, choke was used for channel in the sense that a channel would force the water into a narrower space, thus "choking" it. Maybe I'm way off in left field, but that's what I got. I could be completely making it up. lol.

Yeah!  How about I will stick with Zomba Fett?  :D

Thank you thou for the info.

Here's an idea...if you just wanted to have the translation of Marina as your name, as opposed to like, your first and last name. Then it'd be (like Kalira said) Goten De'sho'cye or something like that.

Best translation that I can do is 'Partaylir Vhett'. 'Zachary' translates as 'God remembers' or 'renowned by God', and since there's no word for god in Mando'a, I had to leave it out and just go with 'remember'.

Title: Re: Names in Mando'a

My RL name into mando'a. I think Yaimagol would do it.

Icelandic           meaning                                     Mando'a
 
Heimir             A man that's found home          Yaimagol? Yaimol'verd?

Sarim came from my second name, Smari. But ironically, it's similar to "Serim" that's Mando'a. Try looking at it backwards  :|

love - cyare (comes up as kar'taylir darasuum, but taylir means hold and darasuum means eternal)

protector - cabur
rescuer - tegaanalir

Hey Ruusaan, what does Owen translate to?

Ah, you'll like this, ner vod.

Owen (from Old Welsh or Greek)> warrior> Verd

Can yall help me think of a Mandalorian name.  I don't remember much Mando'a right now cause of school.  My old nicknames where Cewydew and Sir Uellium and Slayer(If that helps any at all).  I'm a great sniper, team leader,( I think A and D type personality, born in winter, I think, I forget)(I took that clone test that someone posted).  Help would be awesome!  Thanks!

I used Slayer and looked up the word for killer or assassin (which kind of carried the connnotation of a sniper?)  so Kyramud (killer assassin) or Kyramla (fatal or deadly).

 :)

Oooh, complicated...hrm.  It seems you're in the same boat with me, vod. (God's grace and no word for either) But, taking some liberties...you can come up with several names that carry similar ideas.

Protector - Cabur
Rescuer - Tegaanalir
and...
Guard - Aran
Rock - Ruus
Foundation - Ruusaar
Haven or stronghold - Morut

Hope this helps! We'll have our own some day!! ;)

Well Brett means Breton. Breton means a native or inhabitant of Brittany. Still working on the translation for it.

This is it, vod.

Mandalorian names in the RC books
Kal- Blade
Skirata- from skira, meaning settling scores, revenge, or feud
Atin- stubborn, tenacious, capable of endurance
A'den-  wrath or rage
Darman- no longer mando (I think that's what she was meaning in the books??)

I only included the ones I could find translations for, but there's also Ordo, Mereel, Jaing, Walon Vau, and Rav Bralor.

Oooo, can I join?  I used to know Sindarin and some Quenya, but not anymore...and I know plenty of Mando'a!  I'll agree, this is the closest you can get to a Mando name generator besides KT herself - and she doesn't have the time to do that.

My name, Brandon, means either (interchangable) "light on a hill" or "sword of flame," so technically my name should be either Tracynkad or Bralnau'ul, but I chose a different one: Etyc - filthy.  My SW clan name is Gor'kal, Bladesmith, since my family (in SW) forges swords and knives and whatnot, and armor too.

Hmm, bral...I think that's probably what Rav'ika's name comes from.

If only LotR had become as expansive as SW...

Etyc was chosen for it's...uniqueness, I guess - everyone says their name is "Killer" or "Sword" or similar, so I chose something special, different.  I explain it in SW by saying that he was born a little dirty and bloody, and also never gave a crap when he got dirty after hunting on Dxun.

Hey, sorry to bug you again but what is Theresa and Daniel mean in Mando'a?

To find name meanings go to www.babynames.com

Theresa means harvester
The Mando'a word for harvest is kyr'vhetine.
I don't know what the word for hrvester would be. A close word is farmer which is vhett.

Daniel means God is my Judge
I don't have enough words to make a translation for that.
Title: Re: Names in Mando'a
Post by: Etyc_Gorkal on December 02, 2007, 11:38:59 PM
Harvester would be Harvest-Person - kyr'vhetin'ad, or something similar but shortened.

There's no word for God in Mandalorian....

For God, use A'lor(my preference, leader), Manda(uh...the Mando...spirit...thingy...), or Buir(father), your choice.

Quote
Ordo, Mereel, Jaing, Walon Vau, and Rav Bralor.

Jaing's from the Mando Weaponsmaster named Jaing, Ordo is as I recall "a legendary Mando warrior"(check beginning of TZ for exact line), so it's assumed to be from Canderous Ordo, the KotOR character who became Mand'alor, Mereel is from Jaster Mereel, Jango's mentor and the Mand'alor before Jango(that would be the gorgeous one in purple armor...ooh...), I'll work on Rav Bralor, but there's a KotOR Mando named Bralor, and...would Walon Vau be a Mando name? Wasn't he...not a little kid when/if he was adopted?

And I'll look through the Legacy of the Force books and do the names in there. Oooh! Oooh! *randomly theorizes about "Goran", "Medrit", and "Beviin"

Brett -> Breton -> Person from Brittany -> ...Brittanyc? Britanyc? Brittanla? Britanla? (prefer the second, personally)
I've been using "Englandyc" and "Englandla" for "English".
Or...Brittan'ad? Breton'ad? Son of Brittany/Son of a Breton?

Mm. I like Britanyc and Breton'ad.

Title: Re: Names in Mando'a
Post by: Ruusaan on January 08, 2008, 04:59:38 PM
Hrm...

Renwick
Scottish and northern English (pronounced ‘rennick’): habitational name from a place in Cumbria, so called from the Old English byname Hrćfn (meaning ‘raven’) + wic ‘outlying settlement’. (totally plagarized from ancestry.com)

Ok, so we have the word for bird senaar, and I'm pretty sure most ravens are black ne'tra. But then there's still the outlying settlement. We've got words for haven, stronghold, and citadel, also for far, and if you want to get eloquent...afar. Sorry the raven thing's so generic...*sigh*

Ne'tra'senaar would be your "black bird', and Chaaj'yc'keldab would be far city. From what I gather, it means to incorporate the bird and the city...*crap* Tornado watch. I'll think on this while I'm huddled under a matress if you like, and get back to you soon.

Post by: Gratulor on April 16, 2008, 05:53:35 PM
I'm trying to get my name into Mando'a, but it's actually a bit harder than I thought.

Heimir is my first name. It's origin is a matter of dispute, because it can derive from either the noun "Heima" which means home, or "Heimur" which means world. In any case, it can also mean "Home soil" or "Man at home" and I got the following results.


The words I can use:

Yaim - Home
Yaim'la - Comfortable, familiar. Can mean local.
Uvet - World (Poetic)
Me'suum - Planet
Vheh - Earth, dust, soil

The combinitions:

Yaimet (Combinition of yaim and uvet; Ya-eem-et)
Mevet (Combinition of me'suum and uvet; May-vet)
Vhesum "Fesum" (Combinition of me'suum and vheh; Feh-soom)
Yaivhe "Yaife" (Home soil; Ya-ee-feh)

Yaivhe I think comes next to the meaning, but I'm not sure if it looks and sounds good or not. What do you think? Yaivhe, Mevet, Vhesum or Yaimet?

Ah, what unusual names we have! And I have a couple to add.
I forgot to transliterate or translate my Chinese names! (I'm a 2nd or 7th generation Chinese Malaysian, depending on which side of the family you're looking at.)

Right the first is 郭 guo in the first tone (flat). City wall or just a surname. Transliterated as Quek (mine), Kuek, Kok, Kwok, Kuok, et al. Surname pronounciations usually vary by region. Yes my name is Quek. It's pronounced short so 'kwek' would be right, 'kuack' is not.
Next, 凱 kai in the third tone (down then up). Victory. Transliterated as Kai, as far as I know.
Lastly, 亮 liang in the fourth tone (sharply down). Radiant, bright. It's Liang in my name as well. Comes from my dad's 光 guang, light.

So in Mandalorian... probably Ijaat Parjai Dral Araniik.

I'm getting my meanings from http://www.zhongwen.com (http://www.zhongwen.com).

Su'cuy an!  :)

Lek, I am new to the site. I figured I should finally join up.  :D So I was wondering what the names Emily, Ilse and Katrina are in Mando'a. Here are some of my notes:

Emily=industrious, to strive, to excel, to rival, emulating, equal, eager
Ilse=Elizabeth="God's promise," Consecrated to God, noble
Katrina=Katherine=pure, torture, each of the two, my consecration of your name, clear, genuine

Promise=secure, give your word, swear, assure, pledge, vow, oath, word, contract
Industrious=busy, hard-working, diligent
Striving=determined,  ruthless, motivated, pushy

--secure/morut'yc
--give your word/dinuir gar miit
--contract/koor
--hard-working/muun borarir
--determined/nasreyc
--ruthless/kandosii
--equal/sosol
--genuine/veman
--clean/cinyc
--clear/utrel'a
--each of the two/ solus be te t'ad

I know there isn't a word for God and I don't think their is a word for promise. Yet I was thinking that Manda, since it means heaven, could possibly take place of God.

Erm, sorry vod'kia

Erm...well...your problem is identical to mine. Jessica means "God's grace," "YHWH beholds," or "wealthy." <(ha!) I haven't found any of these words in Mando'a, so I just adopted Ruusaan. lol. Middle name maybe? Don't tell me you got saddled with Marie as well. lol.

Post by: Ruusaan on May 19, 2008, 02:19:47 PM
Lek, I am new to the site. I figured I should finally join up.  :D So I was wondering what the names Emily, Ilse and Katrina are in Mando'a. Here are some of my notes:

Emily=industrious, to strive, to excel, to rival, emulating, equal, eager
Ilse=Elizabeth="God's promise," Consecrated to God, noble
Katrina=Katherine=pure, torture, each of the two, my consecration of your name, clear, genuine

Emily>industrious (used "hard working" idea)>Muun'bora
Ilse>consecrated to God (used an idea of preservation)>Al'tayli
Katrina>white (for pure) Cin>Genuine Veman

I know there isn't a word for God and I don't think their is a word for promise. Yet I was thinking that Manda, since it means heaven, could possibly take place of God.

Kal'ika and I kind of played around with words a while back, and came up with the hybrid Al'ir for God. We used alor and buir for it, so we think it fits pretty well. At the least, we have a word now.

So what is Jessica in Mando'a?

You are in luck, actually! With a lot of twisting and shaping and hammering, Kalira and I came up with Al'ka'dara for the name Jessica. It's not any kind of direct translation. We used a shortened version of kar'taylir darasuum for grace, but we do have a name now! heh...

Ruusaan <><

EDIT: waadas is the word for credits or wealth, so maybe Waadas'la for wealthy?

Actually my middle name is Rachelle....which, and a friend of mine so gleefully informed me, is a type of nut.

Gods grace and wealthy....huh, I wish.  I'm the biggest Klutz you'll ever meet, and currently have a grand total of 4 bucks.

Post by: Ijaat Ka'ra on May 29, 2008, 02:23:44 AM
Frances, eh?
The feminine form of Francis.
Francis, meaning 'a Frenchman'... Dead end there.

Well, from Namespedia (http://www.namespedia.com/index.php/Francis) I got 'The meaning of thrust'. I'm not sure what context to take this in, but since we're all Mando, I thought it would be best to use the sword-fighting term thrust, with the point of a blade. However as yet there is no word for this.
ceratir: point (v.)
ukoror:push, shove; doesn't even come close.

So I looked some more and found here (http://www.zelo.com/firstnames/findresults.asp?name=frances&Submit=Find+It); Frances, Germanic origin, A Free Woman.
Much simpler.
Perhaps solus for A/One
mav: Free
mando: Mandalorian individual.
Solu'mav'la Mando? All for a first name? No clue, maybe Ruusan can help.

PS to Ruussan, thanks for the Chinese naming opportunity but I don't see many people from that part of the world coming here. Thanks!

We've been using Al'ir for God. Kalira and I kinda made it up as a hybrid of the words for leader and father. In my understanding, the Mando'ade don't really have a religion. They believe in the manda which, IIRC is like a collective soul kind of thing. It's in the dictionary somewhere.

You're welcome, Fran!

I'm trying to find the mandalorian equivalent of "Lucky." Jate'kara means luck, destiny. So would it be Jate'karala for lucky? Would there be any way to condense that down?

Title: Re: Names in Mando'a

Jarad = Descendant

The closest word I could find for descendant is child. Child in Mando'a is ad.

So i'd say the Mando'a for Jarad is Ad.

Russan hasn't responded so I think I'll give it a try.

Ogilvie -> using High Ground or Hill Fort -> Bral (brahl)
Or if you want a direct translation... Ogilvie -> Laamyc- high, Vhetin- plain/field -> Laa'vhetin

how  would you say Thomas and Katherine and Nathan in mando?
Thomas means "twin", Katherine means "Pure." I think these were in the thread earlier so I'll spend some time looking...

Nathan means "He(God) has given."
Since they've been using the word "Al'ir" for God, I imagine Nathan is:
He has given, (using God gives) -> Al'ir- God, dinui-gives -> Al'ir'dinui, Al'ir'din, Al'din, and so on...

Ogilvie: excellent translation, Anecdote! I also found "high place," but it probably would have wound up coming out the same.
Thomas>twin (Kalira did this, and I think she used "two brothers")> Ta'vode
Katherine>pure (used "white")> Cin, and ther's also Cinyc which means clean.

Hiya, tried to do "Stephen" which means "the crowned one" in greek. What I came up with was "kyr'besla".

Kyr'bes --> skull but colloquially used as crown
la --> general suffix for adjectives

But as a name would it just be left as "Kyr'bes" as a noun, in the meaning of crown?

Darren

The meaning of this name is not known for certain. It was first brought to popular attention by the American actor Darren McGavin (1922-2006). It could be from an Irish surname (which possibly means "great") or it could be a derivation of DARRYL.
another meanign is resourceful??

my name in chinese means little dragon in the sky

Hi there got an OLD as in Ancient list of baby names and meanings; thanks to my ancestors.
Darren according to this list is of Gaelic origin and means "Great".
Will update as I find more. ;)

Gods grace and wealthy....huh, I wish.  I'm the biggest Klutz you'll ever meet, and currently have a grand total of 4 bucks.

Hmm well from my list Rachelle means Ewe,
I've also checked babynames.com and the link that was posted earlier in the thread as well same results.
not sure which is better at this point though. Ewe or sheep vers being a nut. -shrugs- sorry can't be more help right now.

Well I finally found my name in mando'a

I'll post my kids and hubby's as soon as I finish translating them. ;)

Well, the Behind the Name website only says it's a diminutive form of Maria.  Maria just kind of leads you to Mary, and Mary says it might mean "sea of bitterness", "rebelliousness", "beloved"/"love", or "wished for child".  I'd say the first three kind of suit you, from one time to other, (lol) but they all sound kind of crazy to me and I don't know how you'd turn most of them in Mando'a.

Carasuum'parjai, meaning "eternal victory"
Carasuum, meaning "eternal"

If anyone else has a better translation, feel free to add.

Post by: Kalira on September 21, 2009, 04:31:31 PM
Laam'ika: "God is gracious," except iirc when we shortened it the part that got cut was the first bit, so it pretty much just translates to "high gift" now. I think I also used it as a synonym for sacrifice in a translation project a while back.

Elizabeth.

Elizabeth > "My god is an oath" > Closest to oath would be something like "truth" > Ner Al'ir (we're still using that for God, right Ruu?) haat

Neralihaat, Nerali'haat, Ne'lir'haat, N'alir'haat, etc. I rather like the first.

OK, my name in real life is Anton, which I know means praiseworthy.  What would that be in Mando'a?

Good question. There aren't that many words that would work for "praise". You could do "worthy of glory" or reliable, or you could probably even just use Mandokarla. Reliable would leave you with "ruusaan", so maybe if you go that route you could use "Ruus" or "Ruusaanyc" instead of a feminine name. As for "worthy of glory", closest you'd come to worthy would be trustworthy or some such thing (for example, my middle name means battleworthy, which would translate to Ruu'akaan, "reliable in war").

Ruu'kote? Ruu'kot? Kote'ruu? Ruus'kot?

Home is Yaim. That would be the simplest option, and the most literal. Jate and borarir would combine to "good work" which is pretty darn close in meaning to "industrious".  Mirdala is clever, which vaguely approximates wise, which is as close as I could think of to prudent. Gebi is close, as in near to, which...uh, I guess is similar to tight.

In the welsh, Yaim. In the gaelic, 1) I quite like "Bor'jate". Additionally Jate'bor, Jat'borar, etc. 2) Mirdala 3) Gebi.

Can any of you translate Timothy, which means "Honoring God"?
Ijaat is honor and Al'ir is Ruu'ika's catchall combination of Alor/leader (think "Lord") and Buir/father we use for God. Ijaatir, for instance? Ali'jaat? Alternatively we've also used Manda, Alor, or Buir for God in the past.

Brandon > "From a surname which was derived from a place name meaning "hill covered with broom" in Old English" > Bral is high ground, but "broom"...vorpan'oy is vegetation, and hukaatir is to cover. Vorpan'bral? Vor'bral? Bral'vor? I think the latter is the most natural-sounding of the lot.
Paige > gaa'taylir emuurir would be, vaguely, "to enjoy helping others" > Em'tayli? There's several other possible combinations, too.
Additionally I found a separate definition that said Paige (by way of "servant, helper") was originally from the greek Paidon, meaning little boy. Literally that'd be Jag'ika, but Ad'ika would work better than that for a niece (as opposed to a nephew).

And made ends up being "gotal"
There also really isn't a word for "to" or "for"... So I'll skip that.

And I'll use that mangled zombie-word for god.. "al'ir"

So I am going to make a guess.

Gotal al'ir Cabur"...?

Anyone has any corrections?

Late response, but try kyr'bes + goten. Christ literally means "anointed one", if I recall correctly, and the closest I think we ever got to that was "crowned". And goten means birth.

Gotekyr? Kyr'goten?

Post by: Kalira on July 30, 2010, 11:54:37 PM
The normal way to form adjectives are with -la or -yc, depending on which sounds better, so if you wanted to go for a literal translation, it'd be Akaanyc. But the good thing about language is it naturally evolves based on common casual usage (for example, ain't is now in most dictionaries). And like it's been said repeatedly, who's going to correct a Mandalorian's grammar?

Quinton is from the roman name Quintus, which means fifth, so in Mando'a it'd be...Rayshela? Rayshe'a is five, la or yc are the adjective suffixes.

James is a form of Jacob, which means "holder of the heel." Foot is taab, hold is taylir. I translated Jamie, which is just the feminine form of James, to Taa'tayli. It'd be the same thing for James, or Taa'taylir if you wanted a more masculine-sounding name.

Kalira is just writing down everyones names in a little note book and one day is going to be the creepy old man who visits your house......    :D

When I'm not being lazy, I try to keep track of names I've already done, but other than that, my legal counsel advises me to not respond to that statement.  ;)

For example...
John means "God is gracious". Ruusaan came up with Al'ir to mean God, and the closest we have at the moment to gracious is taking dinuir to mean giving or generous. Jean, John, and Jack are all the same root name, so I usually translate them to Alir'dinu (or for Jack, Alir'dinu'ika).

McKenna is "son of Kenneth" and Kenneth means "born of fire." Son is ad, of course. Birth is goten, fire is tracyn. Ad'tracyn, Ad'gotra, Gotracyn...?

Title: Re: Names in Mando'a
Post by: Noldorin Mando on September 07, 2010, 10:10:32 PM
'Ad' is gender neutral, so the name could translate to 'son' or 'daughter' within the context of the name. And Surnames/Clan Names are usually patrilineal in any case, so I wouldn't worry about it in that case. Like a woman having a Mac______ surname. It means 'son of ______', but women associate with it, bear it and proudly call themselves clanswomen.

Title: Re: Names in Mando'a
Post by: Vlet Hansen on September 07, 2010, 10:21:08 PM
"Mesh" means "beautiful" I think, not gem, but it might have more meanings than I was aware of...

and at least in Gaelic, the feminine version of "mac" is "nic".
Title: Re: Names in Mando'a
Post by: Kalira on September 07, 2010, 10:40:02 PM
It'd probably be more accurate to translate "ad" as offspring, yes, rather than either son or daughter exclusively. Gender in Mando'a is either implied by context or specifically stated by the words for "male" and "female."

Vlet, Meshurok is gemstone (approximately, "pretty stone") and vorpan is green. So the Mando'a word "mesh'pan" would be something similar to an emerald.

That's an english grammar rule, the apostrophe thing, not a Mando'a one, but I do recall reading that in Mando'a it was supposed to represent a "breath" or some such thing.

Ahh, yes:
Quote
Sometimes an apostrophe separates the terminal vowel, to indicate the slight glottal stop of some Mandalorian accents. This apostrophe, known as a beten, or sigh-as in Mando'a-can also indicate breathing, pronunciation, or dropped letters.

We can manage without Kalira, it will be a tad bit more rough though lol.

Well Laney, if your name means 'dove', and there is no Mando word for dove, we need to dig deeper.  You could use Galaar for hawk, like Rune said.

Or, you can look at it this way. Dove's are usually meant to represent Peace.  The Mando'a word for peace is Naak.  So, you could do something like Naak Galaar/Galaar Naak, which could mean 'Peace Hawk' or 'Hawk of Peace'. A deeper meaning of the name could also be interpreted as 'A Hawk that watches to maintain peace'.

Hope that helped and made sense.
Title: Re: Names in Mando'a
Post by: Laney97 on April 14, 2011, 02:07:37 PM
It made sense. SO I should start going around saying I'm Galaar Naak. Cool. Sounds weird like me.

Ganar Mesh'la is 'To have beauty', or 'my beautiful'. I can't find a word for rose or flower, so if anyone has the official Mando'a dictionary, help would be appreciated.

EDIT:  I downloaded the Mando'a dictionary, and found the word for 'vegitation' without even looking. I'll look harder for 'flower' specifically, if you want, but 'vegitation' is vorpan'oy

Put 'em all together, and it might come out something like Ganar'Mesh vorpan'oy. I'm still VERY fuzzy on the Mando'a grammar details, so the exact order and pronuncation is up for change according to personal taste :P

Well Kando and kandosii are forms of "noble," and ad means "man," but you might want alor for "leader" instead.

You could try: Kand'alor, or Kando'ad.

Also, be strongly encouraged to drop by the intro thread and put down your name, age, and social security number, or the mods will beat you with hammers!

(Well, they probably won't, but you should post your social security number anyway, just to be, um . . . safe.)

Well Tanner means "one who tans hide"
pel'gam means "skin"
ulik means "animal", since I can't find a word for hide or leather in mando'a
borarir means "work"
So those three can be melded together to get the rough approximation of your name
Pel'ik'rir
Pel'uli'r
Ulik'gam'ir

Anyone figure a descent translation for ancestor or ghost or spirits ( not fighting spirit or drinking spirits)?

Chris>bearing Christ inside>Manda'jorir (MAN-da-JAW-reer)
There you go Grox!

Fettishit:
Well there's manda, but that's closer to heaven I suppose. Other than that I can't seem to find any word for an ancestor. The closest I can think of is to mix the word old ruug'la with grandfather ba'buir. So maybe ruu'ba'buir?

Hello Ruusaan, do you know the name "Chris", or "Christopher" in mando'a?

Thanks, Grox

Christopher>bearing Christ inside>Manda'jorir

EDIT: Oh, hey! Look. It was up there. Hah.  :upsidedown:

Can someone please tell me how to translate your name in Manda'a

Find out what your name means, then use the Mando'a dictionary. I'll see about the link to it later.

Well, our ever-reliable friend Wikipedia says it means channel or strait, so my approximation would be shiib'yustapir...

Or simply Yustapir.

Hello !
I see it's been a while since anyone asked help here but I will still have a try. So can anyone give me hand with names. My names mean: constant, steadfast, durable, stable, thriving :). Thanks

Well, I'd go with Ruusaan. Traditional name, pretty much the same meaning. "Reliable One".

Thank you ! I know the gender is not really important ... but when it comes to names i guess it might be. And i think Ruusaan is more like a female name :D. Maybe ickx doesn't say much, but I am a male.

Yes, Ruusaan is usually a female name. Not always, but usually. Mando'a doesn't always care about gender, lots of the terms are applicable to both sexes.

Another option that doesn't have the female connection would be "Ruusaar". Generally the same meaning: Foundation. And obviously born out of the same root concepts as Ruusaan is. :)

Does anyone have any good Mandalorian names that start with a "D", preferably one word? I'm trying to think of a really good name for my Bounty Hunter player character that I'm making for Star Wars: The Old Republic. His backstory that I came up with for him in my head is that he's a Mandalorian.

Demagol :D

but for real, there's not too many that would be positive that I can think of

there's Dha'ward, but other than that you have fun words like late, scorn, stinky... D is apparently not a very friendly letter

Davaab?
