I am doing a science project and i decided to make some alien species but i want to give them names in Sumerian,
I can pronounce the words that i need but have no clue how to spell the in their ancient form. I was wondering if someone knows how to spell some words or at least knows a website that could help thanks

The ancient Sumerian language was a pictographic language, I assume you want an english translation of it.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for but it's a start at least.

This might be more what you're looking for then.

If you need more than what that covers, do a search on the Sumerian language translation or the writing. If you really want to get in depth about the language and or the culture itself, try the library and see what they might have.

:O That sounds pretty cool. This might help a bit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumerian_religion

I know religion mostly disagrees with the existence of aliens, but in science fiction, aliens are the cause of some religions. >:]

You can probably use the names of some Sumerian gods, like the sky god Anu, or the sea god Enki.

Hope this helped. ^_^
