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?
