The Sohlçan appelation customs are very similar.
Raxbændar son of Bonah from Sohlel would be called
Bonhoy Ræxbandar Helçen (since Sohlel is kind of the
default city (_hel_)), and Rahbenggel son of Bohn from
Cidil would be Bohnoy Rahbenggel Cidilçiny, but in each
case only the second word is actually the man's name in
a strict sense. The first word is simply the father's
name in the genitive and the third is simply the name
of the place of origin with a '-person' suffix. As you
may have guessed the two names are the same in
Classical Sohlob and Cidilib respectively, while the
two placenames are different but contain the same
'city' element. The Kijeb form would be
Bunsayu Raxabaŋri (Kita)Siryuxyuni.
