PaulC's New Town Names

This is the all-new release thread for my various town name projects. I have a few older grfs which I hope to eventually update and post here, but for now they can still be found in the old development thread and I'm mostly going to focus on some new stuff.

All town name sets will use real place names and some will be quite modest in size - no fancy random name generators that give you a billion different combinations! Expect a few quirky and unusual sets with some tongue-twisting town names, some grf's you never knew you needed and possibly some you don't... 8)

Contents
Azerbaijani Town Names v1.0 (22 Jan 2012)
Belgian Town Names v2.0 (24 Jan 2012)
Faroese Town Names v1.0 (2 Feb 2012)
Greenlandic Town Names v1.0 (22 Jan 2012)
Hawai'ian Town Names v1.0 (22 Jan 2012)
Latin Town Names v1.0 (13 Apr 2012) *coded by oberhümer*
Maltese Town Names v1.0 (22 Jan 2012)
Sami Town Names v1.0 (1 Feb 2012)

Compatibility
All town name grfs should work just fine in either OpenTTD or TTDPatch, but see also this next bit...

Font characters
All font characters used in these grfs are included in OpenTTD since 1.2.0 or r23582, and in OpenGFX since 0.4.0. If you're using older versions of these then a few characters will be missing in some grfs. If you're using any other fonts besides those in the base set then you're on your own.

There is currently no support for the extra font characters in TTDPatch, but if anyone needs it then let me know and I'll code something. Or you can try OpenGFX 0.4 for TTDPatch.

Translations
Translations will be most welcome if anyone feels like doing them, and I'll post the english.lng file with each grf just in case. There's not much to translate, just the grf description and the menu name really.

Licence
Unless stated otherwise, all grfs posted in this thread are licensed under a CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 Licence.

Problems, feedback, suggestions, general comments?
Post them in the development thread.

Belgian Town Names v2.0

An update to an old grf that was originally released here... v2.0 is mostly based on a list of Belgian municipalities and contains three seperate sets, so you can choose from a set of 313 place names (in Dutch) from the Flanders Region, 253 place names (in French) from the Wallonia Region, or a combined national set of 593 place names which also includes those municipalities from the Brussels Capital Region and the German-speaking community.

Sami Town Names v1.0

Something a bit different... This set contains 160 place names from Sápmi (or Lapland if you prefer); about half of these places are in Norway, the rest in Sweden, Finland and Russia, and all names are in the Northern Sami language of the indigenous population.

Mind doing some Roman names? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Roman_towns_and_cities_by_country)
I'm sort-of-working on a Latin translation of OpenTTD, which it would suit very well.
