I Asked ChatGPT about the meaning of the word Pouchven. After I got a sufficient response that tells me it does indeed know what I am talking about I asked it about the names of the triglavian ships.
Currently there are four triglavian ships players do not have access to.
Koliada - Seems like a triglavian variant of a Venture based on where it’s seen.
Potremba - Seems like a hauler or mining barge. Possibly both.
Stribozha - A Tanker version of the above ship. Similar roles. Possibly even a triglavian version of the Orca.
Xordazh - World ark, speculated to be similar to our current titans.
THEN I went one step further. I asked it what future Triglavian ship names CCP might give to future ships. It gave me three.
Miroslav - This name combines elements of Slavic names. “Miro” means “peace” or “world,” while “slav” is a common element in Slavic names meaning “glory” or “fame.” The combination could represent a ship that brings its own form of influence and impact to the game’s universe, in line with the enigmatic nature of the Triglavians.
This Might possibly be a FAX?
Perunov - This name draws inspiration from the Slavic god Perun, who is associated with thunder, lightning, war, and protection. The suffix “-ov” is a common ending in Slavic surnames, indicating “belonging to” or “descendant of.” The name “Perunov” could evoke a sense of power, protection, and authority, fitting for a ship within the Triglavian Collective’s fleet.
Command ship? This might end up being the name of the T2 Drekavak
Morozhna - This name takes inspiration from the Russian word “мороз” (moroz), which means “frost” or “cold.” The “-na” suffix could indicate association or belonging. “Morozhna” could evoke an icy or chilling presence, in line with the mysterious and otherworldly nature of the Triglavian Collective.
This feels like the name of an Ewar ship. But considering the nature of Triglavian ships already having this capability as their role bonus. I wouldn’t speculate too much into that. I honestly have no idea where this one even could go.
EDIT: Triglavian dictor/HIC.
Also, if these names are for tech 2 versions, they cant be slavic, as empires make them.
Only unmodified by empires trig ships have slavic names.
So any dictor/HIC/command ship would have empire scheme name.
FAX could be slavic name. Together with anything you would introduce as new class of ship, used by trigs. There could be bombers instead of stealth bombers. Or scouts using cloak but having no scan probe bonuses, etc.
Yes and no. Zarmazd - This name appears to draw from Zoroastrianism, as “Zurvan” or “Zarmazd” is a deity in that religion.
Ikitursa - The origin of this name is less clear, but it might be a combination of various linguistic elements.
I informed ChatGPT that these were not developed by the triglavians, it just got stuck and gave me a non-answer.
Persian is satem language, so it could have been chosen as closer to slavic, yet, no slavic, indeed.
Ikitursa is finnish.
About Chat GPT: it will not give you right answers if it doesnt know the answer. It can even fake stories or things. If you ask it the tldr of books that were not given it to “read”, it will make something up. It can make stories. It doesnt always say “I dont know”, but it will give you answer thats completely made up, because it assembles answers, is not trained to become a fack checking machine.
As someone who is familiar with slavic language, these proposed by Chat GPT are too common. They are like names given to common people. Miroslav is a first name already. Perunov would be a surname. Morozhna would be a surname too. If trigs would have names, these would be their first names and surnames. For ships something mythical would be needed.
Take those names I asked you to predict. But instead of names of gods, weather or actions, Make predictions where the names are of mythical slavic creatures.
Certainly, here are hypothetical ship names in the style of mythical Slavic creatures for the Triglavian Collective in EVE Online:
Koliada - Koliada is a mythical figure associated with the winter solstice in Slavic folklore. It could represent a ship that harnesses the power of celestial events or the coldness of space.
Potremba - Potremba might be inspired by the “Potryasayka,” a supernatural being that shakes the earth, causing earthquakes. This ship name could imply a vessel that disrupts and influences the fabric of space.
Stribozha - Stribozha could draw from the “Stribog,” a deity of the winds in Slavic mythology. This ship might be associated with swiftness, maneuverability, and the power of the air.
I will mention that while these ships look like mining/transport ships, during the triglavian invasion they did their mining with deployable mining platforms. Like a mobile tractor unit but it mines out the asteroid belt.
