Naming Tips: Number 4 in a Series

Here are two more approaches to generating unique names.

The first is a method of creating coined names by combining word parts called truncating. Take parts of two words, preferably from words that describe the subject being named, and combine them into one. Webolution, Byerlympics, Champale are examples.
 
Second tip: Spell descriptive words phonically or alternatively:  In this technique, “Names” becomes “Knames”, Gnames”, “Naims”, “Naymes”, Naimz”.  Sigh becomes Psy, Psigh, Sy, Cy.  There is a caution in that some candidates are really homonyms that could become confusing. (Homonyms are words pronounced the same way but spelled differently. (feet, feat, fete).
