I'm not a proper linguist or anything, but over the years I've created a fairly basic language for a magic people that I use in my D&D games. So far I've got by with them being ancient and long gone, so I've never really needed to give them any meaningful names. That said, in my recent game and the one I'm developing to run next, I wanted them to be more prominent and even still be alive possibly.
Currently, the naming convention I have is 2 or 3 words slapped together and either "i" or "ia" added to the end to specify male or female. Which I find very lazy and partly cliche.
What I want to do is create names that are separate of the language, but still clearly from it. I've tried to look up how names came about and the like, but I can't seem to find anyone asking this question. That all said, anyone know ways or have any tips how I could add a naming convention or even a list of names to my language?
Any help or direction is appreciated!
