Chapter 51 : page 26

Naming a child is hard and these two struggle with it until Vaelia pipe in with a suggestion : Octarya
I tried to make it a realistic struggle to come up with the name and well it was hard for real to come up with a name too! The other names mentioned were real alternatives.

Sweet how Ariel wanted to name her baby girl after Vaelia. Don't worry, Ariel give it another 30-50 years and Vaelia cannot argue against you naming one of your girls after her name. :D

Naming a child is really a difficult business: I think I still mentioned my colleague with a whole spread-sheet of possible names, didn't I?
And the old Romans ended up to simply count up at some point: …, Quintus, Sextus,… Decimus,… ^^

Octarya Val'Sarghress, love it! May she be adored by her family and allies and feared by her enemies }:3 *heehee*

P.S. no worries Kern, I struggle with naming my OCs too more often than I like (the non-drow ones lol)

So, Vaelia ended up naming both kids.
Well - if you don't have a clue, you better get help from an expert. :D

I didn't think Octarya could be any cuter, until I laid my eyes on the fourth panel... :3

Okay, if anything bad happens afterward, or IRL, I know where to look to have a ray of sunshine. 8)

Well, Ariel will be needing to rely on a lot of more expert people to run the clan.

Yeah that's for sure. She will need Kelnoz for Politics, and Zhor and Vaelia for Guidance on other issues.

How is it that you know what an octopus is Faen, hmmmmm *evileye* Not a lot of drow visit the ocean anymore.

Should be fun explaining to Ariel what it is though.
Vaelia: My people have often used them in our art. Here, look at this *Hands Ariel The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife*
Ariel: Oh my goddess, this what Kiel was talking about! *sweatdrop*

Sounds like Octarya rather likes the name Baani herself. It is cute and badass! She gets overruled though, being a baby.

I have to admit, Octarya makes me think of this -

And thus both are named. Here's to Pelan and Octarya. May they grow up well.

Exotic import. Ash'waren had only the tastiest treats for her party.

Now I kinda want Zhor and Vaelia drinking tea together and just sighing a bit over their children, friends and loved ones.
They still love them but, damn are they hopeless sometimes. :P

I wonder why both Faen and Vaelia herself disliked the idea of naming the baby after her? I suppose they both felt she should have her own name, though perhaps Faen felt the baby would have a hard time later being a drow with a human name "shrugs"
