Re: Other Names

Thesaurus is a generally terrible site for finding synonyms, because a lot of the words in this list don't mean what you think they mean. For example, "Sticks" has absolutely nothing to do with towns. If you had bothered to check what "Sticks" means, you wouldn't find anything relating to a town. "Seat" and "Whistle-stop" are also flat out awkward and will likely never be used by a sane person when naming their town. I don't even use suffixes like "town" or "city" in my names of civilization, I just flat out give them names like "Loegres" or "Ainsley".
