All languages if they are not your own are difficult to learn until you grasp the basics really.

I do my best to pronounce the adopted French and German phrases properly, but I don't try very hard with things like Japanese since I have no intention of actually learning the language.

Actually, English is in fact one of the most difficult languages to learn. A friend who was leaning Japanese once said that actually learning to speak the language aint much more difficult than German or French (because of my couse accent I really struggle with the latter). Actually reading the language however is menat to be difficult. Russian is a nasty one apparently as it's foundations are unique to it.

If you want a brain spasm, try Welsh. It's the oldest spoken language in the world, dating back to pre-roman time and is thus rather unique. There is a place in Wales called 'Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwll-llandysiliogogogoch'.

Don't ask me how it pronounced...

well, its a bit longer because they say "boyo" or "look you" or "see now" at regular intervals. Welsh is based on the old celtic language i think, along with irish and scottish (but also a bit of gaellic). Welsh is the elitist language, as if a stranger comes to your village you all speak welsh and hope they go away. Still, it sounds nice to the ear.

It aint celitic, was the language spoken by the Ancient Britons, the old people that rules England at the same time as the Picts ruled Scotland, at tat time the celts were confined to Ireland.

My fursona name is one of my RL nicknames that was ingeniously drved from my initials which are ED. My furona's second name, Dobhran (Doh-ran) is the gaelic word for otter. :3

I hate my legal name, so I adopted the name Felix Lockhart.  And when I needed a fursona name, I chose Softpaw, but there were already a bunch of people with that name, so I stuck Felix in front of it, and tada!  Felix Softpaw.

Orcish, elvish, and whatever other languages Tolkein created were actually functional. They had grammar rules and such. But people didn't speak them in history or anything.

I knew they where functional, I where just surprised that it was a official language (which I don't know if it is).

Well you could try here, but I don't know if it's correct.

Also, isn't it amazing how a lot of/ some people live up to the meaning of their names?

I know some people with last names that describe their occupations. "Reed" plays the clarinet, "Godfrey" is a minister, etc.

Not me, though. :S

My name can mean either "hero" or "from the hay field", but I don't think I live up to either of those. Perhaps someday I'll be a hero for animal rights :p

Bah, that place only has the less-fun definition of my name, but here it is:

HAYLEY 
Gender: Feminine

Usage: English

Pronounced: HAY-lee   [key]
 
From a surname which was originally derived from the name of a town in England (meaning "hay clearing" from Old English heg "hay" and leah "clearing").


Apparently the way I spell it is the ORIGINAL spelling! HAH! Take that all you Haleys, Haileys, Hailees, Hayleighs, and Haylfjskhfjksebvcns!

I was actually named after an actor, irl. But my fur name is latin. Well, to be more accurate, abbreviated Latin. It used to be "Didelphis Virginiana".. now it's just "Di Virginiana" XD But, yeah, on the topic of Japanese names: definitely far to many floating around :/ I deifnitely say that media has a lot to do with it. If anime weren't in America, think of how many nerdy little children would actually be more original than "Shoju" or "" lol I have seen someone who went by a thirty character name online and I couldn't even pronounce it x.x lol anyway, there's my mini-rant.. Bye *waddles off*

I was named after an actress, one Hayley Mills (that girl in the original Parent Trap movie), and as a result had to sit through her films as a child, which made me dislike her quite a bit. My brother got a better deal, he was named Sebastian after a heavy metal singer.
