Well, my (short-form) Rokbeigalmki name is Tzíhvi Rish-Darish-Aoledh.
Tzíhvi ['ts)i-:vi] (that should be an I-acute between the Z and the H) is
my personal name, a shortened version of my Hebrew name Tzvi-hersh, and
Rish-Darish-Aoledh is an 'occupational' lastname meaning
Student-Teacher-Creator; the "Creator" of course referring to the conlang
istelf.
My Tierean/Gabwe name is probably just Ur' Bahar'av (R' = R-acute) [u:R
ba:ha:Ra:v] (/R/ = velar approximant), the name of my Live Action
Role-Playing character for whom i developed the language.  If i always
went by that rule, my Rokbeigalmki name would be Stíígiyus Nededh-Yagh (
= Stygius Wanderer-Fisherman), but i guess i have a real Rokbeigalmki
name of my own because i'm more involved in it that i just need to be to
use it as Stygius (my ElendorMUSH character)'s mother tongue.  Gabwe, on
the other hand, was only invented and developed for Ur'.
If i tried to Gabweize my name, it would be something like Teg Ber't-Ki
[tE:g bE:Rt ki:].
"New York" in Rokbeigalmki is just Nihyáúk [ni-'jO:k];  in Standard
Tierean Gabwe it would be something like Du-Yurk [du: ju:rk].
