So, important topic here!

As people quickly discover, you get the option to name some islands. This is worse than having to choose classes I swear!

What naming scheme do you use when naming islands and why?

Currently I'm tempted to use the greek alphabet in order as I discover them. But it seems a bit boring!

In the early days, I chose some sort of fantasy-esque name that obliquely referred to what I found on that island. ("Nexus of Friendship" i think I used for that island where you recruit a xaurip crewmember, as an example)

In the later days, I chose some sort of fantasy-esque progression that corresponded to whatever "theme" my party had. (like if I had a sneaky party, they'd all be named thematically around shadows or darkness or something. A mad-scientist theme would use some sort celestial catalogue-style sequence of letters and numbers.)

In my most recent run, I literally just named them "Point A" "Point B" etc in order of how I found them. So ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Just have gotten lazy. It's hard to keep coming up with new ideas. In my next run I'll probably just resort to "First Island" "Second Island"

I usually use a name that has a connection to stuff that happens there and which could have been a name sounds as if the locals could have given it. Like "Mother's Sharp Rock", "Eccea's Final Rest", "Imposter's Abattoir" and so on.

I named them mostly after lore characters - a few island have something that feels already appropriate (Black Isle, Xaur Tuk Tuk), I used Fulvano, Ryona and Eccea a few times plus other characters from gear stories in 1 (like Vierina or Pefrel). I had a St. Ponamu once until the scallawags pack made him a possible canon crewmember. I named one Sanza to see if he has a reaction to that as your financier for the whole thing. Some make sense, some are totally arbitrary.
