My name in Yautja is Ghey'Ihn'Mai'Ahz
I won't acknowledge the word "Yautja" or any other retarded "name" for the PRedator other than Wolf, Scar, Chopper, or any other human term we give them. Yautja...what a ******* retarded word...whoever made it up should be shot!
LOL. About the naming thing, I HAVE to name everything. I even name my weapons.first of all, "their human names" is a funny term, since all we can possibly come up with are obviously human names (I'm human...), no matter how many apostrophes you put into them. For all I care, you could call them "S'c'ar", "G'hort" or "Ch'o'Pper", wouldn't change a thing.
Second, I also refuse to name all and everything. As has been said above, I like the mystery that is behind the Preds, and a name like Chopper says: we don't know **** about this thing but we better keep running!
Good stuff.name: i had never thought about it... but i gotta say the ideas shown are pretty freaking awsome.
"yautja": i always have pronounced it 'ya-oo-ta', but i agree in that it still doesnt have a flow to it and that it sounds totally "unfinished",if you will, though at the same time i think it adds a bit of character and spark to the predators because they probably wouldn't call themselves "predators".
clans: i think clans are based on heritage, and where you come from in the world and what you do to make your mark on it. and as far as gaining access to a clan, i think your pred is "born" into a clan and that it is "socially awkward" to try to change to another unless yours is a dieing race or not strong enough
i think that the "yautja" civilization is based on a principle system like ancient sparta... they bread warriors and cast out those who are unworthy of themselves, yet each one has a a governing mind set like the ancient romans, in that they have to see if they can be the greatest and can have the most power and control with the trophies to prove it.
this is just a glympse at what goes on in my mind, and the thoughts i have about the matter...
