    Does anyone know the names about southern two of the four rivers that go into the Gulf of Coeranys, the one that flows between Aerenwe and Osoerde and the one between Osoerde and Coeranys?

    How about the one between Tuarhievel and Cariele? It is not named in the PS of Tuarhievel.

    The one between Osoerde and Aerenwe is the Berendor River (BoP, p32, left column, middle of page). The one between Osoerde and Coeranys I have occasionally called the Sunken River, but as far as I know there is no official designation.

    As far as I know, there is nothing official about this one, either. How about the River Carel, after the Andu of House Carel?

    Given its position, this one especially ought to have two different names:
    the human one and the Sidhelien one. As a general principle, looking
    around the map (Anuire in particular), what fraction of place names do
    people think are original elven names, and what fraction newer human
    names? We do know at least one place with two sets of names (Mhellivene
    in Cariele, which the elves call something like "fool`s passage") -- what
    other sorts of names do people think might/would have been retained or
    changed over time?

    If you want an elvish name, how about Afon Ymresymiad. I generally use Welsh
    for Elvish in BR; this means "Argument River."

    There are also Old Andu (Caercas = Highcastle) names mixed in with that lot to throw you off. The goblin names seem easy to spot.

    How about the Spirit river (from Spiritsend ?)

    In Sword of Roele, the rivers bordering Chimaeron are named.

    The one on the border to Coeranys is named "Quatil River" and the one on the
    border to Rohrmarch is named "Khurinbyrn River".

    IMC, the river between Coeranys and Osoerde is named variously the Eline
    river or the Siellode - the later name is older, and comes from the time
    when Hope`s Demise was a part of the Sielwode, and the river came out of the
    forest.

    I don`t think there should be many sidhelien-sounding names at all. Look at
    England (excluding Ireland, Scotland and Wales) and France (Excluding
    Brittany) - not many Celtic names survive. The Sidhelien were dire enemies
    and never assimilated.

    This applies to Cerilia in general. Of course, areas of mixed culture ought
    to be different.

    Anyway, what does a Sidhelien name sound like? Andurian has a Celtic feel,
    but what characterizes the few elvish names in the game? To my ears, they
    sound more like conventional fantasy names than anything Celtic.

    Neither in Warlock of the Stonecrowns, despite a nice map of Cariele :-(
    Perhaps just an unimportant side-branch of the Ruide River?
