So, whilst explaining Empire to a friend I was asked why the Brass Coast is called the Brass Coast. I have to admit, being in Highguard, I am only really familiar with Highborn history. This lead me to wonder: what is the meaning and origin of each nation’s name?
Is the action of marching linked to the Marches? What is Dawn the dawn of? Is the Navarr an Iaith word? Etc.
On a related note, what do you call people from each nation and why?
Are people from the League called Leaguers? Leaguists? What is free about the Freeborn? Is context the only way to distinguish between the people and nation of Imperial Orcs? Etc.
