It took a long time for the Crew to realize that Agati is really a girl's name in Gerushuani. Took them longer still to realize that that makes my father a Secret Policeman Named Sue. There are five or so feminine forms of names which are typical, -ti, -ri, -arae, -ni, -anae. The masculine forms include the -vin form that was part of Yrvin's name. It literally means "Black man" because he had the equivalent of black eyes from birth (and got a lot of crap over it until people suddenly realize that Oh shit he's meta let's stop this now). Another masculine ending is -drin, as in Shan-drin, or "Night-male-child" as Shandrin was born in the witching hour.

Shandrin, BTW, is actually a rather common name among the Gerushunai, much as say, John is. Vishori is a rather less common name for girls, akin to naming someone today Leticia.
