    Calgatooine just does not have the same ring to it as Edmontooine.
    But along the same lines Calgaron?

    Calrellia?
    From the root Word
    Corellia
    The Corellia star system and its inhabited planets were among the first members of the Old Republic. The system is best know for its fast ships, skilled traders, and pirates that raid the local space lanes.

    Sounds like an old westren town to me.

    I like a lot of the names. We just have to get together for our first meeting to decide a name. We just have to decide when and where to meet.

    At least Calgary is easier to play with than the name Edmonton is. :p

    I my favorites so far are Calgaaron (thanks for fixing the spelling) and Cal Hutta. Calgascant and Calesia. I don't even know how to pronounce Calgshyyyk but it sure looks impresive. It probably would be a good idea to discuss the name at the meeting.

    I like Mon Calgari and Calgaraan, those are funny. :)

    If you find the play on Star Wars names is too cliche for your group, you could also consider using geographical references or natural resources that match up with similar references in Star Wars. Industries such as fuel refining or cattle raising (nerf herding?) might work too.

    Just a thought...

    Calgary Nerf Herders? Calgary Tabanna Gas Mines?

    I liked Mon Calgary or Calgari... it kinda grew on me.

    For some reason, I get the feeling that if it remains as close to the original by adding an extra a and only changing one letter, then Mon Calagari becomes a well-suited play on words. :)
