So there's an author who I really like, cause he's a good egg and frankly epic in every single way, and we talked for ages about reinactment and swords (cause why not?!). I may have fanboyed a little.
At this point I already had his books, but after this, I decided to give them all a re-read, and one of the cities in the books is called Harndon (and is entirely unrelated to the wierd hybrid culture I strapped my nation with), and that name just came up when I was struggling for a name when the site asked me for one, so I put it down.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
Ohhhh me lads! You should've seen us gannin'; Passing the folks along the road, an' all of them were starin' An' all the lads and lasses there, all with smiling faces Gannin' along the Scotswood Rooooooad: To see the Blaydon Races!

I didn't really understand how naming worked on the site, so I'm really "North America"-inspired (minus Central America) country with a continent-wide republican governance. It was too late to change my name once I got the hang of the game and liked it, so I rolled with it. I'd probably change my name if I could, but alas, we're where we're at.
Former: Speaker of the Union, Minister of Domestic Affairs, Deputy Minister of Domestic Affairs, Recruiter, Ambassador and Chairperson of the Union Reserve.
I'll speak to both my current name and the Odd Republic.
Odd Republic: I make up fantastical stories in my head. I like the word odd. For a long time, there was a nation I thought about entitled the Odd Empire (with a ridiculously long full name). When I first joined NS, I made both an Odd Empire and (more fittingly to my beliefs) an Odd Republic. One survived, and I ran with it until the nation died.
Ramelia: In a major shift for my personal canon, I decided to come up with a new capital for what had become the Odd Republic or Odd Union (which is a little ambiguous). I like coming up with names that, to me, are new, so I ended up with Ramelium. Long story short, my name for a country of Ramelium is Ramelia. I liked the name, so that's what I used when naming myself.
