    Default Looking for a name: Ravenloft Edition

    Hey Playground!

    I'm running Curse of Strahd soon, and I'd like to abduct my hapless PCs from my campaign world into Ravenloft. I have one slight problem though. The land which Strahd rules is called Barovia, and it's people are Barovians. By complete happenstance, my campaign world of the past 3 years has been centered around the Empire of Meroe, whose inhabitants are called Merovians.

    What I'm looking for is a replacement name for Barovia that still maintains the Eastern European/Gothic feel without sounding too similar to my own setting. Real names, fake names, anything works, so long as it fits the theme. My PCs won't know the difference, and it'll make our lives a lot less confused.

    As always, thanks for any and all help!

    Karkovia and Karkovians.

    The hard K sound will separate it more fully from the soft M of Meroe.

    Krakozhia. It's just like Barovia, but all the signs are in Cyrillic.
