Matoran Language Generator

Recommended Posts

While we already have a fanmade Matoran dictionary, sometimes it would just be nice to have a way to make Matoran-sounding words that don't mean anything, which is why I made this.

http://www.generatorland.com/usergenerator.aspx?id=6764

 

It's still in a very preliminary phase, and not all the words it makes sound really Matoran. I'm also focusing on just the sounds of the words from 2001, as the language was at its most cohesive then. Any ideas, criticisms, or bug catches are welcome.

I think you did a good job! It's nice to have something like that, and I can really see it being used for things such as the BZPRPG, some fanfiction, etc.

 

The only Issue I have is that it once came up with a word that I would not say is appropriate for the demographics of the site, but it's a minor issue and only those who already know what it is would notice. But that is only over 1 in 350,000 chance to get what I did (If I did the math right...), so I don't see it as a major problem.

Yeah, I think any sufficiently complex random generator can create some things that aren't appropriate. It can also generate some funny stuff too: I've gotten Jake, Nono and Nui-haha (Probably Metru Nui's comedy club). And also Maku, Kio, Huna and Rau.

"Nui-jaja"

 

So close :P

 

That's a neat thing there! Could be very helpful for those of use who can't make up names for whatever reason we may need 'em :) And the interface, while simple, looks pretty. I think changing the font would help it look more finished.

This is great! I gave it some clicks, and it works well. If I need to make some names anytime soon, I'll use this.

Glad people seem to like it. So I made another generator, this one to come up with Matoran characters.

http://www.generatorland.com/usergenerator.aspx?id=6766

It's not really as good as the previous, so suggestions are welcome.

You should change the gender-ratio. I got three female Matoran in a row...

What an awesome thing! I just clicked a few times and immediately came across a few combinations that sound like they were straight from 2001! Gapipi, pasusi, muahku... I will remember this.

I got Nuju on my third click.

 

Other stuff: Mahi, Kotu, Jawa, Nuva, Tohu, Aa, Oo, Kini, Muriga, Hohatu and Kakamo. I must have spent five solid minutes clicking...

LOL Hello, Oo, my name is Aa. XD

fThe gender ratio is 50/50.

You know, only Ga-, Ce-, and Vo-Matoran are female, and they are all female. I also got a Matoran of Vacuum (identified as Ni-Matoran), which couldn't fit in the canon.

 

In the language generator, I've gotten Pope, Rune, Kina (almost Kiina), One, Rama, and Rue. I found most the names I got to be quite Japanese-sounding.

Glad to have all this feedback! I might edit it and see if I can do something to make it a little closer to getting the canon names. Sounding like Japanese is pretty much expected, since Japan is a Pacific island (chain) and Pacific island language were the inspiration for Matoran.

About the Matoran generator, Ni-Matoran was a mistake. It's a fan-made element of mine that I didn't mean to put in the final version. I'll fix that. And I know most elements are male-only or female-only. But I find that silly and think it would make much more sense if any element could have any gender. If you'd like to conform to canon gender rules, you can just ignore the generated gender.

This is a nice little generator you have, Akavakaku. When I'm RPing in the BZPRPG, I typically just recycle names I've been using for the last 10+ years, but otherwise, I could see this being useful for those wanting to create new characters on the fly in the RPG forum. 

 

I also have nothing but praise for the 50/50 gender ratio. Nice work!

This seems quite useful indeed. I often find myself stumped by creating a realistic-sounding Matoran name, so this will be a much better alternative to mashing keys and hoping something Matoran-sounding appears. Bravo!

Well, apparently "poo" is a Matoran word.

Very Nice! And in conjunction with the matoran dictionary, i was able to generate words with actual meanings such as Korae(Ice storm) and Avoran(Eternal Light), which will be used in my upcoming fanfictions.
