View Full Version : What'd you call the planet?

I really liked the name Novus, it sounds cool and fits with this concept of an entirely new human civilisation ( which frankly eclipsed almost all human civilisations in the pegasus and milkyway galaxies, bar a couple like earth, the Aschen etc. ) but I wondered what I'd call the planet if I were there..

Since I think Novus is a cool name I would change it a tiny bit:

"Terra Novus"

New Earth, or New Land.
I'm a warhammer 40K fan and there Earth is called Terra, so that might be why ;)

What would you call the planet?

New Caprica.

:P

No, seriously, I would probably go with something like "Horizon". But I think that Novus is a brilliant name for a planet.

what did I call the planet...? you mean what would I call it?
Probably Elysium, or Pleroma. Novus is a great name, too; i just wouldn't have thought of it.

What would you call the planet?

But Novus means 'New' so your Terra Novus would mean Earth New, you would have to make it Novus Terra to mean New Earth, which I think sounds cooler anyway :p

Anyone remember what the continents were called again? Something like Futuro and Terra-something? I forget...

I based it off the latin arangement of the words ( in other words; relatively random placement )

Plus I find that "Terra Novus" is nicer to pronounce, it rolls off the tongue. ;)

All planets should be named "Dave". Then the official anthem could be:

Given what little I know about Latin, the grammatically correct name would be Terra Nova.

The Destiny

Yes.

But Novus sounds cooler than Nova ^^

And who knows, Ancient might be different. It's pretty obvious the writers use their dog latin for ancient though.

Whatever is Latin for "The place we ended up". According to Google translator it's "Locus nos evasisse"

"New Morocco", colonel young's country called "the New Moroccan confederacy" since it sounds awesome, and rush's country "totally square font name" simply for the sake of mockery.
