I am starting this thread for those of you who need some inspiration with town names. The rules and agreements are as follows.

1. You may submit names with the full knowledge that any of them may be used by others.

2. No inappropriate or insulting names

3. No blatently plagaristic names (like Hyrule or Tatooine)
(Obscure names may be used though)

4. No stupid names (Meaning no Bunny-roasting-on-a-spitville)

5. Keep in mind that this is only for those who cannot think of a town name, you do not have to use this.

Haha trouble, you certainly used a lot of Latin. However your declensions are despicable.

yeah google translate is utter crap. Want proof? ok. Do this:
Make up a funny phrase in english.
Translate it into swahili
translate that into arabic
translate that into polenesian
translate that into chinese
translate that into russian
translate that into german
translate that into aramaic
translate it back into english.

Youll see. I got from "The duck swims on the lake" to "Ducky in the wide river spinning around with splash"
Apparently in swahili swimming is considered "Splash spinning"

Dauntless!

Geburtstag means 'Birthday' in German.
So if it was a German - themed town then it'd be OK. But Bustenhalter or Wirtschaftwissenschaften is better.

(Bustenhalter - German for bra) (Wirtschaftwissenschaften - Economics)

That's not proof it's garbage, get any group of professional translaters together and pass the sentence around like that and it'll come out meaning next to nothing at the end. The same goes for telling people a joke, 8 people later it's morphed at random.
