The Naming ritual arose soon after the Silver Intervention, created by the Danasians to honor the original twenty clans as well as promote the unity of the new nation. It is a ritual that persisted throughout the ages, despite the great many conflicts and divisions that plagued the nation since.
Major Human Clans
After each child is born, they are given tri-syllabic names. The first syllable is a personal name and can be unique or, occasionally, randomly chosen from one of the twenty major clans, as tribute to the inclusion of all clans in one nation. The second, they derive from their father's source clan. The third from their mother's.
|Father: Kilowan||Mother: Suchihan||Father: Kaidokim||Mother: Xanbanbo|
|Son: Jolochi||Daughter: Weidoban|
In this way, a Danasian is always aware of his source clan, through his father's line.
Any Danasian that has shamed his nation and banished is stripped of his first name, a sign that he has been removed from his main family line. Being left with only his second and third name signifies that truly, all he has left in this world is his mother's love and himself. Few have faced such banishment, the most notorious of which is Stankim.
