I have a bad case of writer's block, and I need some realistic-sounding country names for my story. Nothing too "exotic" or hard to pronounce, please. Thank you!

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • Hi, and welcome to Writers! In its current state, your question will likely be closed due to a lack of details. If you can edit your question to better explain what kind of names you are looking for and in what specific area you are having trouble (coming up with bad names, or coming up with no names at all, etc.) we might be able to help you. – Thomas Myron May 9 '17 at 20:44

    I would refer you to this question: writers.stackexchange.com/q/23957/10394 It also has helpful links to other similar questions which should prove helpful. – Thomas Myron May 9 '17 at 20:48

    Hi Wurrie and welcome to Writers. Asking us to generate names for you isn't a good fit for this site. Asking how to generate good names is on-topic if you describe what makes a name "good" -- are you looking for certain linguistic properties, something that takes your world's mythology into account (you'd have to explain that), something with particular imagery, etc? See the question that Thomas linked for an example. If by "good" you meant realistic then that question should help; if you meant something else, please edit to explain and we can look at taking this off hold. Thanks. – Monica Cellio May 10 '17 at 2:53

    I second @ThomasMyron's suggestion. Short of actually providing a list (which is obviously "what to write", and off topic), the answers to that question seem to cover everything the poster could need for coming up with realistic-sounding names. – TheTermiteSociety May 10 '17 at 8:32
