Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Actually Abishai is kind of a nice name. Means 'giver of a gift'.

    Exotic names tend to be pretty. It's too bad people will be douches about them.

    Exotic names are still regular names, made up names are still regular names.

    Meanwhile "Pilot Inspektor Lee" is just a joke that nutty parents decided to leave their son with until he can legally change his name at 18.

    Screw it.

    I would name my daughter, as an example, Phoebe Victoria (surname surname)

    potential name-based nicknames include Phee, Beebee, Vicky, Tori

    or we could just call her Kitty for the heck of it.

    But on the birth record it will not be a contraction of a nickname

    It will be Phoebe Victoria (surname surname)

    They tend to be one of those cultural things that people make a big deal out of, especially children. If it's not 'normal', then it's bad.

    One of the kids at the Islamic School of Seattle is named John. For most Americans that's a normal name. In a sea of Aishas and Abdrahmans, however, he tends to stand out.

    Elldren's kids will all be named after biblical characters.

    Yep. Cute little Zippora and Gershom.

    Barak is a kickass biblical name.
    1) It's from the oldest portion of the Old Testament (at least, the oldest bit that runs for more than a sentance) the Song of Deborah (Judges 5)
    2) The story. Some bitchy old king and his general Siserah are starting some shit with their nine thousand iron chariots. Deborah tells Barak to get his ass in gear and fix this nonsense. Once he gets Deborah to agree to come along to make things legitimate, Barak gets together ten thousand dirty crazy ass hill people and they go dig in on a mountain. Siserah rolls up with his chariots and come nightfall the dirty ass hill people come swarming down off the mountain and butcher them to the last man.

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson

    Probably doesn't work with the current version. Though if you are learning you should play the older 40d version for a while (more stable).
