inspired by @ANSEL's privateering thread I added names for swedish citizens and ships! now that sweden's a nation anyway might as well make it feel like a fullfledged one some notes; I took the ship names from historical ships from the period. my favorites are probably Bönan(the bean) and Näsvis(impertinent). the citizen names are a bit of a compromise. the -sson names, so very typically swedish, are absent! that's because they werent used as family names until quite long after the relevant periods. you were called Andersson if you were Ander's son, and Andersdotter if you were Ander's daughter, and they were not inherited since your children preferably werent also the children of your father or mother, and neither did it pass to your spouse since they didnt switch parents. family names as such werent really a huge thing among most people in the period; nobility and priests kinda used them and burghers followed suit as their influence grew. so I added noble, burgher and scholar names like Natt och Dag, Wallander, Linnæus, Lindberg, Angermannius etc. nicknames and soldiers names tho were very common, so I added quite a lot of those. theyre adjectives, animals or weapons they thought were cool, professions, where they were from etc, and any combination of those. like Frisk(Healthy), Lantz(Lance), Fjällsvärd(mountain sword), Bagare(Baker), från Skara(from Skara), Mårdaklev(just a place), den Yngre(the Younger) etc. they werent really inherited on a large scale during most of the period either, but mostly you wont meet more than one generation, and it would often be used to tell people apart so they're more historical than -sson. sweden was quite behind when it came to family politics and most things other than war, tbh. hope that sounds like an alright solution EDIT: added globals.c to the rar EDIT2: updated again, now things should Just Work™ hopefully EDIT3: merged @Homo eructus improved ship names with the new swedish ones!
