“Kester” has promise as the basis for a Klingon-sounding name, and your forename Franklin
already includes a concept on which our languages and culture are based. Tinker with both and see if anything resonates. (Caveat: “khest” is a klingonaase
word root incorporated into a wide range of profanities and slang. Be careful how you use it, and run it by a Klingon elder before committing yourself to it, or it to you.)
quoth qoSagh: There are several threads here about Klingon names, all of which contain opinions of and suggestions by other members on how to and not to select your name.
Here is one to get you started. In an extensive thread on Klingon Names
, several Klinfolk offer suggestions and tell the tales of how their own names came to be. Read through it and see if you find inspiration on naming your own Klingon persona.
Based on Kehlan’s experience
, I offer you the cautionary advice of running prospective names through a search engine. You may find that the name carries connotations (read: baggage) with some because of historical or political figures who beat you to the name. Only you can decide whether a name is worth being beaten over. }}: P
