Chapter 51 : page 25

They decide to finally give proper names to the two infants and fail miserably.
Who knew making names was that hard? This page kind of reflect our struggle with the matter. In the end Vaelia is the one to name the boy.

Those last four panels are awesome. The last panel reminds me of Steve Carell so much.

I, for one, want to know why Araen is considered as laughable as Faiel. Seriously, Araen sounds great.

I mean maybe if it's pronounced as Aren, but I was thinking like how many believe Faen to be pronounced (Fae-een, so Arah-een which sounds alot like Aireen) although even if Faen is pronounced like Fae but with n, that would make Araen sound like 'a rain' which is still a good name.

Also, with the comma separate name extension that seemingly all drow have I'm beginning to suspect that a name like Ariel'faen or Faen'ariel are how many drow actually are named. It would even make sense if the ones they're named after (biological parents) don't raise them. Assuming nobles still only raise their own first children who will raise their younger siblings... I don't know if that's canon still.

...yup, she definitely inherited that trait from Quain.

Tana isn't that bad of a name really. Though it does remind me of the daydream story where Quain went undercover as "Lady Tana" - boy she hated that. Probably a cursed name.

Not sure what they are implying about Kau and Shala....

Vaelia has the best facial expression in panel 4. She knows...she knows all too well.... *heehee*

That does raise the question of what did Quain look like as a baby? Well, ok babies tend not to look that different, and Quain herself looked pretty different when young....but it is still fun to imagine a huge, permanently grumpy baby.

Pup has some very strong opinions on this. He is even doing a headdesk - I guess no one has taught him the family facepalm technique yet.

Oh boy, in universe ship names....

Lucky kid, not many kids get to name themsevles.
And he managed to end up with a decent name, instead of Lazar-Dinosaurus-King-Raar! or something. :P

I remember the original Mii-family thing had her named Oktaba or something like that, which I can see working fairly well.

Vaelia is Ariel's bodyguard though. ;)

Ariel accepted that she is Quain's granddaughter, and not her daughter. Did she ever acknowledge that before?

Yeah, since the beginning of chapter 50, Ariel's been dropping hints that she knows Quain is her grandma and not mother

And I remember Pelan from a livestream, it's from some fantasy language meaning 'wolf', right?

Reminds me to a colleague when he and his wife got her first child:
After telling some details a few days later when he got back to work, we asked him:
»Boy or girl?« - »Girl«
»And her name?« - »Uh… we had a full excel-sheed with names…«
(He's from the marketing section) XD

Yes, naming a baby is difficult. ;)

Interesting that Faen proposes names in honor of Quain, and Ariel seems really put off by the idea.

Openly said so? I cannot remember any instances of such, outside of a joke page where she said "please don't die grandma!"

Still, from the context of her words and actions, she clearly knew and accepted the truth - in particular I remember she was calling the pups her brothers and sisters before catching herself and saying "nephews and niece" in public.

I think Ariel hasn't been officially inaugurated yet and because she isn't on duty she doesn't need an escort.

Looking it up, apparently it is a real name - shows up in Ireland, France, and Eastern Europe.

Honestly I'm going "baba" Baba Val'Sarghress. that's called a self call back

In all seriousness, Octavia Val'Sarghress is a boss name.

And this is probably one of the first times anyone has asked Pup- Pelan, what he wants. I'm glad that Vaelia helped him figure it out :) :) So cute
