A Note About Minbari Naming ConventionsMinbari do not normally use their full names when interacting. Out of a population of more than three billion, however, it's a given that there will be more than one 'Delenn' or 'Lennier'. In situations calling for more detailed identification, a Minbari will provide a clan/guild name along with his or her given name - 'Delenn' becomes 'Delenn Mir' or, more formally, 'Delenn ra'Mir' ('ra' means 'of'). When establishing a social hierarchy is required, such as a formal ceremony with many attendees, a Minbari will give their title as well - 'Min'entil Delenn ra'Mir' (Ambassador Delenn of Clan Mir). This naming convention applies to both Worker and Religious Caste. For Warriors, the honorific 'Zhaden' (Warrior) is used instead of a title - for example: 'Zhaden Shakiri ra'Vonilbok'. Unlike human family names, however, shared Minbari clan/guild names do not necessarily mean that the bearers are physically related.unknown
A Note About Name OriginsMinbari names are not bestowed lightly. They have meaning and, in large measure, tell other Minbari something about who a person is beyond mere identity. They are considered 'birth prophecies' bestowed by one's parents and family. Unlike humans, where the family lineage is traced through the father, Minbari geneology follows the mother's line. A child's mother provides him or her a 'base' name, while the father supplies an honorific of choice. 'Delenn', for example, is a compound name with 'Lenn' (Traveler) being the base taken from her mother's name. 'Del' (Grey), the honorific, was her father's contribution. Thus the name 'Delenn' is a mini prophecy that foretells the bearer will be one who walks between the Darkness and the Light...and one who will not always make the correct choice between the two.unknown
