View Full Version : Curious about Tau names

08-06-2006, 07:42
I was wondering if there was a Tau name generator or something. I've got the 'translation' of what I'd like (Cmdr. Stonewrought...or something like that; still poking about) but if there was a place that can do that I'd love to know about it. Otherwise I'll just make something up.

On a slightly different note, if anyone has any suggestions on a name for a commander I'd be appreciative. Preferably something that has to do with stone, rock, or another immovable object (reason being is my Tau won't break; no matter how hard the Etheral's yell at them, they won't break even if it would save their lives...darn them for yelling "for the greater good!" and staying in melee with berserkers...*sigh*). Anywho, thanks if you can help.

Other than that, as long as it sounds right, you're pretty much free to make up anything you want. One of my Shas'ui is named Pep'si (as a joke, but it still works), I have an 'el named Ly'and (nothing to do with UT >.>) and a Shas'o named R'ly (*cough*).

The "book nerd" in me wants that to be a Cthulhu reference.

...but the computer nerd in me weeps.

The computer nerd in you is correct. It was thrown out as a pisstake, so I just had to adopt it to **** people off. :lol:
