To keep things brief I have been working on a project since I was 10 (naturally it's been rewritten countless times and vastly altered since then) and have finally come up against one of the last walls before writing a final draft. At some point over the years I opted to have a lot of the locations and character names be written in a Latin style language that was completely made up and just sounded good at the time, but now I'm debating whether I should just simply convert everything to actual Latin. I wanted to know what the opinions of other writers might be on this subject. The main detractor of using my own language is that I'm not Tolkien and didn't spend 30 years crafting a fully functional language and I know that I'm not going to fully commit to something like that anytime soon. However, the idea of having a language that is basically meaningless nonsense floating around the background is starting to bother me. Will converting to Latin possibly muddy the water a little and distract from the overall mood? It's a dark fantasy which loosely reflects ancient historical cultures so yes I was going for a Roman flavor, but I'm worried using actual Latin might be a bit heavy handed and possibly dull.
