    Be aware I might change the suffixes a little (and sometimes the actual word is modified also), just to make the street names flow better.

    Heh, be aware people will have to live in these streets :3

    Should be some awesome roleplay scenarios afforded by living at some of these street names.

    Also, a street should be named after whomever was the first Kickstarter backer (assuming they know who that is).

    Still looking for anyone who is able to contribute interesting names (drawing from Ultima lore is great) - I can populate this myself using a whole bunch of things, but really would like this to be a community effort...every person here is unique and able to contribute things the next person might not think of.

    Yep, although if they do something like that, I hope its also reflected somehow in the environment still, like some street corner having an orange tree, and there's some way to connect to the lore in the game. There are two purposes I think to giving descriptive street names: 1. Lore, but 2. Making it easier for players to find their way around. If the streets are descriptive of what's there at the street, its easier to find your way around.

    Another street title I was thinking of, but where I don't remember any real world examples is "Court", like meaning courtyard, similar to Square or Plaza. So "Honor Court", could be a street around a plaza somewhere.

    In addition to names of virtues, there could also be latinized/semi-latinzed versions like is common in Ultima games; vertas, valorian ,etc.

    Yes, that's why I have organised the street names into categories, to make it easier for the devs to find the right name for the area.

    Some names are just more appropriate for certain areas (industry names by industry areas, nature/farm names in country areas, tree names in treed streets, water names by bodies of water, etc).

    I love your street naming initiative, Lollie! It would be cool to have an alphabetical list of the names already suggested to make it easier to see if an idea has already been proposed. The categories help a lot.

    Anything with Starr, e.g. Starry Heights
    Anything with Avatar, e.g. Avatar Row
    Desert themed names for desert biome, e.g. Desert View Road, Scorpion Circle, Sandy Way
    Mountain themed names for hilly biome, e.g. Eyrie Road, Shrouded Peak Road

    I wouldn't like to live on a street that has an unpleasant name.

    I'm keeping track of the names, and adjusting them where necessary, putting them in the right category etc. Right now it isn't like this thread is getting snowed under with suggestions. Just try to think up anything, I'll organise it in the lists.

    I hope some of the more unpleasant names just get used for NPC areas to create atmosphere, and they give the player towns appropriate names (like trees and nature and water etc) :3
