| Almost done with my Chiveagon (Chicago topic) characters! The character's name is Leo Dudek, a Polish-American criminal from Carcer City. Many other characters include two Palestinian gangsters, an Egyptian boss, two corrupt detectives and an officer working on trying to bring down a Chinese gang, a Puerto Rican drug marketer working with a European man cheating on his gang, a Native American homeless man, and more.|
Are these characters unique or what?
I don't like the name you chose, and that's like 75% of selling me the idea of a new city. The name has to sound like something Rockstar would come up with or it brings the whole project down. You know? I haven't seen many successful goes at Chicago or any other cities like it, simply because it's so difficult to come up with a proper name.
You can't just change a few letters of the original city name and send it off like that, because then I don't even know how to pronounce it.
Chiv-e-uhgun? Chive-gun? Chiv-e-ah-gon? F*ck.
I took the "CHIVE" part from the word "CHIVE" meaning the smallest species of edible onions. When the French came to Chicago, they called it Chigagou, meaning "onion field" because many wild onions and garlic grew profusely in the area.
The "AGON" part is just because I didn't think of another thing to add.
It's pronounced SHIVE-AH-GIN, btw.
To me, the name seems like something that'll be so familiar to people, so catchy.
