What's your Chiss Name?

There's a thread about Chiss names futher down, I'm curious to know what people who have followed Chiss convention have chosen for their names and why??

My IA Chiss is called: Thosc
Full name is: Jarlat'hos'clien

This name doesnt use any "official" Chiss family or occupation names I'm aware of in SW Lore (decent list found here). Of course I could please any puritans by claiming a full name of Brast'hos'cspalla to match that list.

Why? Well I always use names from a list of about 75 I have from my Neverwinter Nigths days. Each name has a character to me from it's creation and I try to match that name with the character I wish to portray.

Of course the D&D world doesn't have anything close to Chiss naming convention so I took my Dark Elf Warlock, Jarlath Hosclien, and transformed his name. Incidently Hosclien is the name of my WoW Holy Paladin.

If you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about, here's some helpful resources:

My Agent's name is Kit'alo'nuruodo. I gave him that name in game and rp the core name Talon. I mostly solo and my guild is a light duty/for fun group on a RP server so I don't feel too bad with the long full Chiss name.

My Chiss responds pretty much solely as Veldarel, because most of his position in the military making him deal with humans extremely often. So, he's pretty much adopted it both for ease and to signify his dedication to the Empire.

His actual name is Shev'eldare'lith, but he doesn't want to take up too much time correcting pronunciation.

I've been doing some research, for some reason the female characters don't take the last letter of the first name and the first of the last one, they just use the "core name" as normal name. I don't know why though, and I think there's a female character that does as the male ones but I cannot recall her name.

My Chiss BH's full name is Cyn'tion'avi, but she goes by Tiona and almost nobody knows her full name. It was because she wanted the Ascendancy to leave her alone, but then Hoth happened...

They still don't know her full name, and she likes it that way.
