I would like some help inventing a name. Do you all know any good synonyms for the following words:


Freedom
Liberty or liberal
Autonomy
Anarchy


Latin or English would work. I have tried google and such places, but sometimes it is easier if other brains come up with something I never thought about myself.

:cool:

I think archetypal synonyms may be more appropriate than linguistic ones...

Such as:

'Enlightened Self-Interest'

'Trans-Personal Sovereignty'

It would be helpful to specify what the word you need is intended for, for the sake of better focus on adequate options.

No, that would color the reply. I want it free of restrictions... LOL!

Thanks for the suggestions.
