Magnum Solaris (magnum means great in Latin, solaris refers to the sun, also in Latin)

Sounds too complicated and hard to understand for my opinion.

Solar Overload. Plain and simple.

Hmm.......

How about.

Solar Embodiment.

Or maybe just some random characters and symbols, and saying that it is in a forgotten language?
Hey you... Yes you... get over here...

Magnum Solaris (magnum means great in Latin, solaris refers to the sun, also in Latin)
Two adjectives next to eachother do not sound good...

And now I can't help but to wonder why you named a lot of stuff after incomprehensible made-up words, yet you can't accept a Latin word because it's 'hard to understand'.

Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

Ha! My language comes from Latin [-)! It's stylish, but I don't know if it's the coolest...

I think Aero wants at least the abilities to have a "normal" name, and if you think about it, all abilities are in pure english, am I wrong?(although a latin word would be cool too)

I've personally liked the megma's idea. I think it's good because it says "solar" that can sound(if you have a good imagination ::)) similar to "soul", which is something obviously related to the ability. And it's very cool :o(for a ability related to the sun to be cool...hahahaha... ... ...).

My personal idea is: Sun Soul or Sun Heart, with the variations Light Heart and Dark Heart.

Everything Sounds More Dignified in Latin?

I think I've used pure English with ability names so I would like to continue with that way.

So far Armageddon Orb is winning.

I actually like Solar Overload. But it's still 4/5 name.
