I am in the process of setting up a new part of my world and I know that I lack some knowledge, but I think that some people here might be very good at providing some extra information...
In total I have seventeen clans and I would like to have "eastern" sounding names for the different clans. In general I am going to use the already available english names, but for the sake of being complete, I would like to find the eastern names as well.
The elves have seven clans named after their totem animal:
Bear, Dolphin, Dragon, Eagle, Parrot, Unicorn and Wolf
The dwarves boast five clans named after the elements of magic:
Air, Earth, Fire, Void, Water
The humans have been divided into five clans named after crystals:
Amethyst, Corundum, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire
(Especialy among humans there are a lot of minor clans, which are also called after minerals, but typicaly after minerals that are less and less expensive. No clan however shall be called after the sacred jade.)
Any help would be appreciated. Oh yes, I was realy looking for japanese names, but if you can provide me with "translations" to korean or Mandarin, I would be most gratefull as well.
