Been doing a bit of combing through the series to identify all the names that the Treecats have given various human characters.

Honor Harrington - Dances on Clouds
Hamish Alexander - Strong Heart
Elizabeth Winton - Soul of Steel
Emily Alexander - Sees Clearly
Alfred Harrington - Deep Roots
Alison Chou Harrington - Laugh Dancer
Eloise Pritchard - Truth Seeker
Thomas Theisman - Dreams of Peace
Adelina Arif - Speaks from Silence

If anyone knows any I have missed, please shout out.

Also does anyone have any ideas for treecat names for charcters who so far have not been given one. With the new "anti nano-tech"/bodyguard role the cats are playing we are likely to see them becoming more widespread and we may learn what the cats are calling their new people. Top 5 characters i would like to see named are listed below, but if anyone has thought of one for any others feel free: -

Victor Cachat
Abigael Heurns
Estelle Matsuko
Lester Tourville
Shannon Foracker

I think we've done this before, but you are right, I expect RFC will have to come up with some more treecat names for the characters in the near future.

As for my guesses:

Cachat: Thinks Like People (for who is closer to a treecat mind-glow than Victor?)

Hearns: Fearless Youth (see her history)

Estelle Matsuko: Clever Tale Weaver (Diplomat)

Lester Tourville: Buried Thoughts (Lester's a 'cowboy', but also very smart)

Shannon Foraker: Forgets but Remembers (forgetful of small things, but remembers the important things--like those that lead to blowing up 20 SD's...)


as for others,

Mike Henke
Protector Benjamin
Oversteegen
Khumalo
Jeremy X

Anders Whitakers name was Bleached Fur and Karl had his name changed to Shining Sunlight.

Jessica Pharris - Windswept
Marjory Harrington - Plant Minder

The only idea I've had for one not already given is "Star Dancer" for Abigail, but this isn't really an area I'm good at. (As opposed to figuring out who needs to marry who. :mrgreen: )

...erm, I know you love Javier and all, but given that he's dead and never met a treecat while he was alive, that would be a bit tricky ...

Perhaps this is just wishful thinking about one of my very favorite characters, but I have a feeling we're going to find out precisely what Shannon Foraker's treecat name is...because I'm thinking she's going to be adopted. I think she'd come across just a bit like a memory singer (albeit a sort of distracted, loopy one!), with that complex, long-ranging mind of hers.

"Not exactly living in the here and now, your two-legs..."

"No...she's not. But here, taste deeper."

"Oh...OH! That's a really bad two-legs to have view you as a threat, isn't she?"

"Yep..."

Hi Festival,

I love it!

I don't think "Oops" translates all that well in treecat, but how about "Accidentally deadly, on purpose" sound? 8-)

Any snippet or post from RFC is good if not great!
