ok as sad as this may seem, and sorry if it's in the wrong section of the site, me and my mates are having a discussion about what NASA (or group in
the future) would call there first deep space colony on an earth like planet, as we're thinking about starting a story based on the idea of the first
colony outside of the solar system.
we did some research and came up with a few names, but we didn't like/think they'd be used. All based around Greek god names. Any feedback or fresh
input into ideas/new ideas is welcome,
Aidos (which we'd probably name the ship) - which was the greek god of human justice, giving them a sense of Shame & Respect to keep them right. She
was also the god that led humanity in Earth's darkest hour.
(was that line that made us want to call the ship Aidos)
Elpis - female god of hope. When Pandora opened her box, Elpis was the only spirit to remain behind and give humanity hope. So maybes the control
centre back on Earth could be called Elpis?
at one point we where thinking about calling the planet AidosElpis... but then we realised it sounded like 'Aid us to piss' not very good.
those are side names, but what we really can't decide is what they'd call the Colony? It doesn't even have to be Greek related. We just want
something believable, we where even thinking of calling the planet 'Kepler' as it was found during the Kepler mission.
any help would be appreciated
