Your name in Pandunia

What kinds of names are acceptable?

Proper names belong to the category of nouns, so ideally they should be identifiable as nouns by their ending in Pandunia. Also the adjective ending can work, because adjective can occupy the same position as nouns in phrases. For example, one can say mono viri helpa debili (Only the brave help the weak).

So, proper names can end in:

Names that end in -a, -u and -o could be misunderstood as verbs (-a and -u) or adverbs (-o). So you should be careful with them. But don't worry, common names like "amanda", "sara" and "fatima" are normally recognized as names because they don't sound like any Pandunia word.
