Name the Brat Prince of Gondor
April, 30 2006
Several of you who have read Fourth Age have asked me what Tel's full name is. I don't know yet. And as Raksha kindly pointed out, why should I come up with a name, when I have all those willing readers out there?
So, if you're interested, here's your chance to name a character in the Hethverse. Give me the name and a brief explanation of why you think it is appropriate. It doesn't necessarily have to be a Tel name-Tel could be short for Telcontar, his last name. Which begs the question-why doesn't Tel use his first name? Is it truly that hideous? So a tasteful name isn't absolutely necessary, and an explanation of why he doesn't like to be called by his name, humorous or not will be appreciated.
I've just been rediscovering your stories after several years' break, and stumbled across this... and since it seems I'm not *quite* too late to chime in:
I was going to suggest Telemnar, because that's what I named him in my head the first time I read Fourth Age. But, I never thought to actually look it up until I saw this thread... now I think I know why no-one else suggested it, eep. Talk about ill-omened! Scratch that one off the list...
I also like the idea of an embarrassing first name. Fun if it were Elbereth: Tolkien *did* keep trying to give that name to male characters (it was the original name of first Elured, and later Elrohir, heh) and then changing his mind. It fits with the El- pattern established by Elessar and Eldarion, too.
Just my .02 cents. :o)
