We were thinking 'Gondor' because that is such a beautiful city, but does it sound too masculine? Also, does it sound too much like Goneril? She was awful, so that would be a horrible name to saddle a girl with.

Going by your user name, I thought you might be interested in this elvish names site.

Wardrobe.

RustyBear Sat 18-Jun-11 07:53:47

Calormen?

Susan

Sorry - realised I didn't answer what you actually asked. I didn't think "Goneril" - I thought Condor. I don't like it as a name at all, sorry.

Are you definitely after a place name?

ElfDiasphora Sat 18-Jun-11 07:59:28

Yes, placename ideally. But not Wardrobe which seems a bit odd.

Spareoom?

GwendolineMaryLacey Sat 18-Jun-11 08:03:48

Shouldn't that be Spare-Oom. It'll have to hyphenated.

ElfDiasphora Sat 18-Jun-11 08:04:35

Calormen would be ok (though she would probalby argue with Narnia!), but sounds a bit like Calor Gas so might mean she was teased.

Spare-Oom! Lol.

Lamppost?

jimswifein1964 Sat 18-Jun-11 08:10:48

Ah, but I thought the hyphen made it sound a bit pretenious!

Aslanna grin

Well there's always Archenland. The sort of Switzerland of the planet-that-appears-to-have-no-name-or-also-be-called-Narnia. Or the Lone Islands.

How about Buruna?

RustyBear Sat 18-Jun-11 08:13:10

Narnian place names:

Avra
Felimath
Alambil
Tarva
Felinda
Galma
Mezreel
Terebinthia
Zalindreh

My iPad autocorrect went nuts with that list! Is that something we'll have to consider with baby names in future - what they are going to turn into when somebody texts them?
Not to mention emails - I once got an email from someone called Lee Rather - turned into leerather@xxxx.com

Banania!

EdithWeston Sat 18-Jun-11 08:17:02

Calormen us far too masculine sounding (and made me think of this who deliver bottled gas).

How about Emerald (City), Mandalay, Utopia, Arcadia, Perucia, Ischia, Florence, Parthenope, Shirley, Xanadu?

sassyTHEFIRST Sat 18-Jun-11 08:19:29

You have a child called Narnia?

<boggle>

EdithWeston Sat 18-Jun-11 08:22:30

Sphinx? Riva? Ruatha? Nerat? Lorien? Tyrsis? Ista? R'shael? Irrylyn? Rillanon?

GollyHolightly Sat 18-Jun-11 08:25:02

Insania. You get the celeb reference in there too!

No need to thank me.

Tarva is a star, not a place. Sister of Alambil IIRC

ElfDiasphora Sat 18-Jun-11 08:59:52

Actually, I thought Calormen sounded a bit masculine too, but I didn't want to be negative about it in case I got flamed for racism because CSLewis was very racist about it and didn't make it sound like a nice place.

It shouldn't sound masculine just because it has 'men' in it. After all, 'Amanda' doesn't sound masculine I think.

Aslanna is a lovely idea, thankyou. But ds1 is Aslan so that wouldn't work.

Lots of good suggestions here. I will think on.

Oh get lost! grin

You had me going there for a minute! Well done.
