Hmm... I don't really like Aka'virr, because it is quite close to Akavir which is some place in The Elder Scrolls. Other than that, woohoo, more names to remember. Heh. Although I do like the changes.

It does sound neat... Perhaps something slightly different, just a change in some vowels or something. I dunno.

Maybe just change the spelling some more to make it less obvious where the inspiration for the name came from? Like Aka'vyr?

Mmh, Aka'vyr would work better. Perhaps even Aca'vyr.

I suppose that'd work, although I rather like the "vyr" part.

No, "Aca'ji" as is the "Aka'ji". You know, huge nation that had it's capitol on Aka'virr destroyed by a supervolcano and subsequently split into the Aari'ji and Valiero'ji? "Aka'virr" and "Aka'ji" are closely related terms and have the same prefix. Therefor, if Aka'virr becomes "Aca'vyr", Aka'ji must become "Aca'ji". I was asking with you think "Aca'ji" is good.

Mmh. Well, better that than having it look like another name, I guess.

"Fractal Wave Space" was a technical thing. Aside from Slipstream Space being heavily associated with Halo almost exclusively, I also came up with my own theory of inter-dimensional space which I'll probably explain at some point.

Oh, that sounds interesting. Looking forward to hearing it. And distancing the book from Halo stuff is good as well.
