I still have the survey open, But i've stopped adding new names, as the ones currently there are gaining ground faster than any of the new suggestions.

Hello everyone, not sure if this is still relevant but I would still like to post my opinion regarding faction naming.

First of all, I agree with other saying that the names should not be taken from existing or relate directly to fictions. Movies, series, other games... IMHO it would be best to try and find unique names.

Secondly, I imagine each factions as different species.

Also, I do not think that common words should be used: Farmers, Gnats, Flies, Red, Bee... Not very original. :? Spiky plants is the worst of them all!

So far, I like the names suggested by some members and I think they are appropriate: Terrans, Huntis, Tinkrell... among other are good names.

So here are some ideas.

F1/F8 = Terran. Very good. The starting faction. We relate to them.
F2 = Avian. I imagine them as bird like agricultural beings.
F3 = Huntis. Good one.
F4 = Tinkrell. Again, nice one.
F6 = Cyberian. I see them as a machine/robotic super consciousness.
F7 = Insectoid. I imagine them as ugly, small insectoid sentient being. Vyrus is also a good name IMO.
F10 = Outcast is nice and I imagine them as an heterogeneous faction of many different races.
F11 = Crystalline/Crystallite. Nice one. I see them as half biological half crystal like beings.
F12 = Reptilian. Because of their fast ships, I envision them as "reptoid" beings with quick reflexes and thinking.
F13 = Chlorophyllian. Tall plant like humanoid. Peaceful but dangerous if provoked...
F15 = Sentinel is not bad... But I think something more in the line of "The ancient ones" would be best. They are very powerful and have been in the technological era for a long time compared to the other factions. To avoid common words: Primordian.

Those are my thoughts on the subject. :D

Faction 3: Rapations (see rapacious)
Faction 6: Orthogons (from the word orthogonal meaning four sided)
Faction 7: Drovus

i'll see what else I can come up with.
