In Response to Creating Fantasy Names

The only name I have created for a character is Meriyem, and than I learned it is actually a variant of Mary - I had no idea before! I have created Meriyem from Mer/Meran Persian word for snake since she was a Slytherin - lol, and it was a nod to Shahmeran - queen of serpents/snakes.

I would love to read that book too, I am searching for a new book after all.

The origin name is Çağla so it is Chahlah, ç is ch like in child/chair and ğ has no sound and just lengthens the vowel.

It used to be for soldiers but now the meaning is more general.

You are talking about s with cedilla and dotless I. I don't use ı ğ but i do ise umlauts sometimes. But these names do not contain any hard letters like that. The most challenging will be Ceren/Ceyhun in which c is pronounced as j but it is is the least of my favorites lol. I don't like c names that much myself.

I know the meaning of Attila and Atilla spelling is really popular too. In Turkish we also have variations like Atilay and Itilay. Stress is on the first syllable. Levent doesn't mean warrior but it means marine.

They are mostly Turkish or names that entered the language and now count as Turkish names too. Alina is the ancient Greek name of the city I was born, Mugla but I think Mugla or Mugulili are less appealing than Alina. Ayla is Turkish and Hebrew but they have different in two languages, in Turkish it means halo around moon and it can be used as Aylin too. Ilya is the name of Jerusalem along with Kudüs. Iris is another shared name, in old Turkic she is a goddess. 

For boy names I don't mind the Narnia associations with Aslan since I love the series myself and as a child I enjoyed seeing part of my culture in Western literature, my other favorite is Jules Verne's book about a very stubborn man from Istanbul. But Aslan is a historical name for me. Same goes with Atilla, I love the man. Kutlu and Mutlu arenhard names but they are honoring my late uncles and that's why I am trying combinations with them. 

Ardahan Levent is a honor name, partially, since middle name is my father's name lol. He hates his name but I think it is perfect. Sereday Maral could work too but I am so used to Almila Sereday now I am not sure if I can change that combination. I wrote a really long answer and no need to thank me I love sharing Turkish names because I think they deserve to be appreciated too. Even in Turkey people name their children with Arabic/Persian names and sees Turkish names as hippy. :/

Seve is two syllables Sehv-eh will be the correct pronunciation 

Ehr-an-deez will be more correct 

We put the stress on the last syllable btw. And Ger is like Garry. 

They are unexpected nature names, no one in Turkey names their children with those names - with the exception of Dilek, Erendiz and Aslan - but among those three Aslan is known as a historical name. Çolpan may be an old person name, Masak is not popular but another spelling Bashak -sh is ş- is. Talayhan/Altayhan will be used as Altay/Talay instead.

It is interesting how you like Tanha and Dilek for opposite genders. Masak I can understand because I find pretty harsh sounding too, there are other spellings like Bashak and Mashak but I don't think they are any better. Tilek is from Tilge Han - a mythological God - so I can see it work for boys tbh. Well in Turkish you say as you write but I think I can help you better if you tell me specific names to spell.
