Need ideas for country names


#1

I need some help with creating names for nations in a project I’m working on. I’ve been toying around with some ideas for a British-inspired country, but all I could think of was Albion, and that just doesn’t sound good.
Also trying to figure out names for a Austro-Hungarian/German empire, but I’ve got nothing.


Russian-like country name?

You could use a name generator. Some are rather good at providing interesting names, like this one: http://fantasynamegenerators.com/country_names.php

I’ve been searching endlessly through Wikipedia, translate, various name generators, and mashing up works, but I just can’t seem to find a good Russian name that isn’t taken. Can anyone lend me a hand?

Thank you all for your suggestions. Rogar, I’m look for more Tsardom era Russia, since you asked.

Or even earlier like the Kiev Rus?
