Heres some names Dezlaneans, Dethzaes, Dethzealtians, if none of these seem

having only been in existens
for not much more then 100 years when the Father elf Wizard and Mother dwarf
sorceress moved here to escape from the ridicule of thier people for their

Also is it ok Namhas, Yorkaturr, Beregar, Harums, and Mandor if i design
