RE: Behold, "Tulpanto!" I bring you a new word from Esperanto.

Coming from someone whose studied Esperanto, I like the concept. I have to mirror what others have said though; tulpanto just doesn't have a ring to me.... Doesn't have that connection in English... maybe it's because I'm just used to using "tulpaforcing / forcer", and even "tulpamancer" -- just rolls off the tongue better for me... But maybe I'm just used to the others. Tulpado kind of sounds like torpedo to me.

I think this is a good time to look at new terms though, but I found in these kinds of situations, things that evolve naturally usually end up holding more substance than something we decide we should start using... Even English has unintendedly become that "widely-accepted universal language" that Esperanto was meant to be...

As much as we forced the plural "tulpae" in the early days, I'm probably the only one using that derivative in this thread.

What about dropping the "o" and using the English -ant suffix, like in applicant? Tulpa and tulpant. Pronounced tul-pant, which is more like tul-pint in my accent. Does tulpant have more of an ring? It's also incredibly easy to make plural: tulpant, tulpants.

Tulpanto and two tulpas!

I really like "-mancer" and "-mancy", while really hating the sound and cultural associations of "tulpa", so you're fundamentally coming from the wrong direction to address my concerns. Though, even if the scattered many thousands of tulpas and hosts were willing to come together to seriously discuss a name change, I don't have what I consider a viable replacement.

I think tulpant sounds better than tulpanto.

Tulpant/Tulpas: N, Azure, Damien, Jade, Spark.
Other: Torea, Kaffryn, Zachary

I really don't like tulpanto. In my opinion if there's a new term it should make sense in English or be composed of familiar suffixes used in the English language. Tulpant doesn't mean anything to me either, the tulpa part gets swallowed up by... pant.

Also, I'm fine with the terms tulpamancer/tulpamancy.
