People

The pronunciation of personal names is notably different from other Jovian language. In particular, the female ending -a is commonly still pronounced as [@] (or even [a] in pretentious register), whereas it has gone mute in Modern Jovian. Similarly, the endings -en, -an, -un may retain their final [n], though [@] alone is becoming more and more popular.

Male names descended from Latin o-stem nouns typically end in -e rather than -u, because they were derived from the vocative form.

Abbreviations made by clipping the unstressed initial syllable of a longer name, such as Neile from Corneile, are so common nowadays that they are often given to children as the official full name. Nicknames are popularly formed with the endings -i for women and -ou for men, e.g. Houstou ['huStu] < Auhuste, Maeri ['majri] < Maera.
