    Spiritsend

    Discussion thread for Spiritsend.

    Not to sound too picky, but do we really need a character called Brosen? After all, we don't have characters called Taegha, Elin or Boru, so why should there still be the given name Brosen?

    I'm sorry, but you have lost me there. Are you objecting because it is normally a surname, or because it is a place in Germany or what?

    Some of the names are a bit odd, but I normally don't change names without a character reason, because left to my own devices I'd use a disproportionate amount of real names.

    I would avoid heavy use of non-Anglicized Welsh and Celtic names for non elves, because elves draw their names from that source, and its possible to end up with no distinction between elves and humans. Anglicized Celtic names work great because they suggestion cultural transfer.

    So Coinneach would be an elven name, and Kenneth would be a human name.

    Lots of names are derived from famous places and place names, so a character named Brosen isn't implausible.

    My comment was that Brosen was the surname of a great ducal family and it seems very odd to have it as a given name. In my mind, it sounds very American and sticks out as one of the only examples of this tradition.
