    I need help naming my bookstore.

    I am looking for words in different languages that mean Freedom Fighters, Revoutionaries, Seditionists, Secessionists... Something along those lines.

    Searchers for truth, strugglers for truth...

    People with revolutionary ideas and striving and fighting for liberation and truth.

    Sandinistas is probably too specific and alienating, but I do love the sound of it.

    I am a bit partial to Spanish, but I'd like to hear many different languages.

    Any suggestions?

    I bet there's some ancient Greek word for guerrilla fighters.

    You could mess about with Babelfish Translation and try a few phrases to see what they look/sound like.

    The name Cultural Revolution came to my mind - the Chinese business initiated by Mao.
    Sounds better in Italian, tho' - IMHO - giro culturale
