Its a compound formed of two separate words when Nimue decided to turn them into a single surname. ;)

For that matter, the Martial Art she learned, "moarte subita", translates to "sudden death" in Romanian.

"Instant death" is probably closer, as "sudden" implies an element of surprise or unexpected, whereas "subita" merely implies immediacy.

But, "sudden death" being the usual idiom, the Moldo-Walachian phrase is close enough for government work; they were Marines, after all.

As I previously noted elsewhere, Athrawess is alsoa good Welsh word.

My Welsh is non-existent, but Google translate gives
Chwaer as sister or companion
iau as Thursday (!) or Jupiter

I notice RFC didn't actually give us his translation of the whole name. :)

Using a lower case "i" iau can be an adjective meaning junior or younger.

I would have settled for the other word she combined it with.
