Default Ok guys i need help!

I'm writing a fan fic which will soon be posted on this forum and I'm at a loss for male Na'vi names. I want it to be manly, yet easy to say. Any help would be appreciated! I kinda suck at Na'vi names >.<

This might help, Random Navi Name generator:
The Name Generator Generator | Rum and Monkey
The words you type in the box are the seed value.

Just a note about names:
Tsu'tey's full name was Tsu’tey te Rongloa Ateyitan.
"Ateyo" was Tsu'tey's father, "Rongloa" was the tribe he was from, "te" is a participle only used full names. (I think "-tan" or "-itan" means "son" or "son of". I am not sure of this).

Naytiri's full name is Neytiri te Tskaha Mo'at’ite.
Again, her name includes "te". -'ite" means "daughter of" (I know this for a fact). I'm not sure what Tskaha means but it may have to do with her future role as a Tsahik (I'm only guessing here).

Hmm...

Use your imagination. the Na'vi, having only been used in one movie so far, are pretty open to a name of your choosing.
And remember, as a fanfiction, luckilly you may only need the first name.

I'd suggest heading on over to the Na'vi dictionary and then looking around for words that would best describe your character's personality.

That, or as others have suggested, use your imagination and just make it sound authentic...

Ah, yes, always the hardest part.........

I usually ask the people at learnnavi.org when I need something, or at least use their resources to get somewhere.

I am writing a fanfic as well.......so many projects I want to do, so little time....

Mine should be done (or at least have a majority of the chapters completed) by late October.

I'll go check yours out.

The Na'vi dictionary has a few. Other than that, you could use specific words as well, I guess, if their meaning might fit as a name.

Not quite. te Rongloa / Tskaha is kind of like a family name - while the Na'vi are part of one clan, this is more a 'family' thing than a specific clan (otherwise, Neytiri's name would include Omatikaya, not to mention how Tsu'tey was not in his clan otherwise).

Well, as a little boost, here's some names I could think of:

Atan.
Ni'kal. (guess where I got the inspiration from)
I'taka.
Likae.
Ve'tal.
Hiraan.
Be'tul.
Ma'nil.

Most names I can imagine at this such time.
