Thread: Can someone help me with naming conventions

    Question Can someone help me with naming conventions

    Ive seen that tribes often are used for the lands name

    Vasconia for the Vascones,

    [A]Media for the Medes

    Sannica for the Sanni?

    does this hold true, and is it just for tribes who end in Latin -I? What about Ae or A?

    I've also seen as with the Sinti of the Maeotian sea they've been called the "Siraces" - any tips there?

    If it's Latin, then {district} {genitive form of the local tribe} should be enough.

    It's for a game, right?

    A map, actually. So it's all genitive - I should look into that.
