Name Translations

     For those of you who have read my recent Aridrim post, you probably have noticed the * beside character names when they first appear.  That is because each of the names mean something in elven (in the case of that post, the human names will be posted when the humans appear).  So, because I was anal enough to go to that detail, I decided that I would also post the meanings for each name.  But in a separate post so they don't interfere with the reading of the story.  So, here they are!

Nulanna = Daughter of Hope – Aridrim’s first born cousin and babysitter


Tahlama = Blade Strider – Aridrim’s mother


Garharath = With Owl’s Wisdom – Aridrim’s father


Baelik = Mighty Guardian – Aridrim’s Great Grandfather’s first name


Theratri = Skydance – Family name of Aridrim’s mother’s side.


Aridrim = Silver flyer – Come on, do I really need to explain this one?  ^_^


Korel = Black Hawk – Aridrim’s surname name and his father’s family name.

Good detail. And even if no one else is willing to say anything, I will...because I know you care about details. You mispelled 'Silver'.

Damn! I knew something was wonky about that word! Thanks! Correcting it now!
