Vermin names?

Just take the first several first letters of the first several words that you see.

After you pick them, you put them into an anagram machine and see which one sounds good.

Example:

maswosg

becomes

Wagmoss

That sounds like a ratty name.

Maybe...

It could be a culture thing... We don't mention allot of things like the fact that we take the sir name from the husband. it is just natural and we don't even think about it. (Don't now go off on a tangent saying that people don't always do that It was just an example) Perhaps the vermin change their name when they get older like a coming of age thing. A way to say that they are independent and no longer need their parents or any connection to them.


Remember in Taggerung the stoat named Gruven? Antigra (his mother) was going to name him Zann, but Sawney Rath made her change his name to his father's. Gruven kept his name his whole life. Even when he earned the title of Zann, he was called Gruven Zann Juskazann.

Hmm...Interesting...

Maybe every tribe has different naming customs.

Yes, and in some cases they add on a name that they got from circumstances or battle wounds like Reynard Chopsnout (The Legend of Luke), Plugg Firetail (Triss) and Vizka Longtooth (Eulalia!). Their first name seems to be given them by their parents while their second is something they gave them selves later.

And all though less common, it is also true with some Redwallers, like Corksnout Spikkle (Doomwyte), in which case it's his first name that got added on when he was older.

And sorry for the confusion between Chopsnout and Corksnout....

through this whole thread the discussion has never touched on wildcats. Some, like Gingivere and Julian were good, but most, including Riggu Felis and Tsarmina, were evil.

True.
But I guess that comes back to nurture versus nature, and why they turn out the way they do.
