Welcome to the list.  I am DloraH, currently serving as the list's Beginners' 
Grammarian.  It is my job to help the newbies.

Unfortunately, it would be a little hard to learn klingon without at least the 
Klingon Dictionary; and one should also have Klingon For The Galactic Traveler.
Fortunately, these don't cost several dozens of dollars.  (Well, I guess it 
depends on the exchange rate.)  If you can't get the books locally you can 
order them from the KLI.

But we are still happy to help you learn.  This is definitely the right place.

There is a section about this in the FAQ on the KLI website.
Basically your name is up to you.  As far as we know, (most of) the names in 
the shows don't mean anything.  Many fans try to create names that do mean 
something; many just pick a sound that they like; etc.

Introductions are acceptable.  Then, once you're part of our little family, 
there are two rules:  Write about anything using the klingon language, or use 
another language (english) to discuss only the klingon language.

If you have any questions, be sure to ask.

DloraH, BG
