Castle project naming thread

Bruce N H wrote:One thing you guys should do first is come up with a name for the project, so we stop calling it generic names like 'the group project that is similar in some ways to the GoH project on Eurobricks'. You should try to come up with something that will have a 3 or so letter acronym that people can use in post subject lines. E.g if you called the whole project (and I'm not suggesting this) Classic-Castle Group World, people would title posts something like CCGW MOC - Desert Outpost.


Personally I like the idea of having a made-up name instead of a description, like Middle Earth (LotR), or Westeros (A Song of Ice and Fire).

To get the acronym the project could be called "World of ..." or something like that.

Suggestions?

Guilds of Classic Castle, GCC

That was my idea.

I've got one,

Factions of Bricktainia.

I'd like to stay away from the word "guilds" as my concept for a cross-kingdom secondary membership relies on that term.

I'd go with something like Mark's or "Lands of Classic Castle", "World of Classic Kingdoms", etc.

I like Factions of Bricktania a lot, but we should try to include the word "classic" in it. I somehow feel like I owe it to CC. :wink:

I really like AK_Brickster's idea "Lands of Classic Castle". I'd vote for that right now.

I agree with that - I'd say a Guild was a cross-kingdom entity (e.g. merchants guild, assassins guild etc), a faction is a geopolitical unit. "Lands of Classic Castle" is as good a name as any, I think wobnam was actually suggesting we create a name (e.g. Bricktania). I'm not very good at creating names like that, so I'd suggest others have a go!

Lands of Classic Castle has an easy acronym. I say we call the "Game" that, and builds can be tagged "LCC - Northtopia - Town Center", for example.

A name for the actual land is up to someone else. I stink at coming up with those also :)

Lands of Classic Castle, sounds nice! :) But as to individual faction names, I'm not that great at coming up with new ones too. :? So... Who's going to name our factons?!?!?

We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. First we need a name for the land and a map. After that, we can assign regions with names, and decide which factions will inhabit them.

Lands of Classic castle sound pretty good but so does Factions of Bricktania :D . When and who is going to decide what name shall be use for the land and the diffrent territoriums?

I'd say LCC is the winner in my book. As for naming the different factions, I think that we definitely need to flesh out the landscape of each faction(i.e. what makes it unique), then we can name appropriately.

How about we leave this thread open for suggestions for a few days, and then have a vote?

Is that a vote on the name or on factions, or both?

My first naming thought was CCM - Classic Castle Mundi.
That binds it unmistakenly to classic-castle. It sounds after CCC, which was the thing that drove me here. And it's all Roman ciphers.
Now that I read all your suggestions I see it's no better than LCC.

About the name of the map, I thought of the Marks of Minimen. I like the ancient word mark, it brings the mind back to mocs for minifigs without literally mentioning minifigs, and it alliterates.

As to whom will be naming the individual marks: isn't that up to those who conquer that area, who plant their flag, I mean, to those who take the initiative (together with the comoc'ers that are interested in the same area) to start the main threads? I'm interested in the mystic realm, and wouldn't want to push a name for a mountain area.
