Re: How would you go about creating a Germanic conlang that is Spanish like?

Is this a good noob guess of how names may look like in a such conlang
Haimariks - Henrico, Enrico
Wiljahelmaz - Wilelmo/Wilermo
Harjawaldaz - Harvaldo, Haraldo
Raginaharjaz - Ragnaro, Rainero
Sigiwarduz - Sigvardo, Sivardo(?)

These are without any regular sound changes.

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Do Romanian cases come directly from Vulgar Latin or are adaptations from Slavic?

Re: How would you go about creating a Germanic conlang that is Spanish like?

Something feels strange here ... A germlang that looks like Spanish s like something that has been attempted before, probably derived from Gothic. Also, which romlang is Icelandic-like again?

How would you go about creating a Germanic conlang that is Spanish like?

We have a Romance conlang that is like Polish and one that resembles Icelandic

How about one that is like Spanish? One with open syllabes and fewer consoant clusters,?
