Naming Continents Convention

Post  Great Eurussia on Sun Jul 28, 2013 1:27 am



WA CONVENTION ON NAMING CONTINENTS
Eurussia, as a responsible member of the World Alliance, plans to propose to the Security Council a regional law that aims to formalize and divide the World Alliance (Map/Region) in terms of grouping the landmasses into continents/regions/sections/areas/zones (or whatever term is applicable) for easier reference on roleplays, improvement of forming geographical alliances, formal (RP speaking) inter-continental organizations, regional blocs, trade routes, warfares, treaties, and so an and so forth.
Eurussia invites everyone's participation to see if this move is necessary or not, and what names can we agree to apply to our very unique, dynamic and great region of WA! Or should the boundaries be adjusted! Speak for yourself! :-)

Sincerely, no XD
I think fantasy name are preferable then real name.
For example, the violet continent ... what do you think about Leseria?

No cause it would mess things up. For example in a news statement : "Europe and Asia, a nation in Africa, has declared war against Korya, a nation in Europe."


Get how messed up that sounds?

Yeah, no one nation can name it after themselves, and Caucasia sounds kinda...unequal.

I agree with the Antanares, also on the name of the violet continent. Leseria seems kinda right, for me.

LOL How about something sounds as Greek and make sure that word is related to the continent it is assigned? Such as one of the continents be named as Atlantes (suppose that I know a lot about those Greek terms lol)

What do you think to call continents like the titans of Greek mythology?

Like Hyperion, Mnemosyne, Cronus, Themis, Helios and Selene?

I think that would be a really good idea! I think if we can get the rest of our continent to agree on one of those names, we should name ours after one, at least.

So I presume this is a battle between the Greek World and the Game World! So bring out those names and let's see! :-)

In my opinion I think is better the name are similar, with the same linguistic base. For example Greek or Latin base. Names too different are not .... good. In my opinion of course ^^

Still the endings are all the same, don't really like it. I think that countries in each continent should choose their own continents name.
