Why this elaborate reference page? For myself, mostly--I used it to build the planet! Gets hard to keep track of every mountain.

Roots of names: rather than creating fictional Capsican tongues to justify placenames, I've decided to trace their real origins; it reveals much about the creative process. Most do have roots in Earth languages, though I recognized some sources only long after coining them. Most refer to hot things, as seemed only right for Capsica. Though the definition of hot is broad indeed. Had to be. Planets are big! Even little planets are big. I needed lots of names.
