    we could go civ-by-civ or have categories like Indian, Greek etc. I think though that the ones that fit into the big categories will also be the ones with most names.

    please post your suggestions and I will assemble them into lists.

    I will search and post as many names as I can.

    First I need some definitions though..

    For Scientists, we are looking for : Mathematicians, Geometers, Astronomers... anything else in this category?

    For Prophets, we are looking for : Prophets obviously, Saints and Apostles for Christians, Oracles for Greco-Romans (?) what else ?

    For Engineers , we are looking for : Architects I guess, and Engineers that were constructing siege weapons and fortresses during wars.. anything else?

    For Merchants, we are looking for : Merchants (I doubt we will find someone similar to Marco Polo..) and Explorers.

    For Artists, we are looking for : Poets, Philosophers, Historians, Play Writers, Sculptors... anything else?

    Honestly for the most part the categories will be pretty obvious, and IIRC it's possible to have GP names in multiple categories without them repeating ingame.

    You mean that, eg Archimedes could be a great engineer as well as a great scientist too?

    Yes, I think so. I remember Leoreth saying that about DoC, anyway.

    Yeah, I can also confirm it works that way, if my memory serves me well
    If Archimedes had born as a GE, he won't be a GS later in the game, even if he is on both lists

    Alright, I found some great people names for the Hellenistic civs. In my opinion, a pool for each category should be created and then, when a great person is born, pick a name from that pool. Most of the great people of that era were either from Ptolemaic Egypt, or worked in Egypt. Also I merged the scientists with the engineers. My research was based on an encyclopedia.

    That's right, the game only keeps one global list where it checks off whether a name has already been used.

    Do you think that historians fit in the Artist or in Scientist category?

    After all, history is a science ..

    Yeah, my first thought was that they should be in the Artists category, but then I saw I found much more artists than scientists :p

    remember scientists are actually called "Scholars" in the mod so historians would probably be that.
