The Character of Names
By Zoraida Cordova
Tristan Hart (merdude) - I picked it out during an Arthurian Lit class in college. Tristan and Isolde is one of my favorite stories and the name just hit a cord in me.
Layla Santos (human chick) - I happened to be listening to that song while looking for the right girl's name. The last name is Spanish, and it means Saint. She isn't a saint, but in some ways, she is there to save a part of Tristan.
Kurtomathetis (court merman) - It's severe, much like Kurt. And in some mythology text, a turtle god.
Gwen (mermaid princess) - Yes, famous Arthurian name, but this one was an accident. She has the tendency to be a bitch, and that's the first name that came to mind.
