It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

Nickname Help!
comment 17 Written by on October 22, 2008 – 11:12 am

I’m trying to find a good nickname for Aelflaed (pronounced ALE-flayed), whose name is a bit of a mouthful.  Other than Ale-wench (which is what her brother called her when he was mad), the only suggestion I’ve had so far is Elly.

Anyone have any ideas?

  1. Aelly or Aelli. It’s how I’ve always said it in my head whenever you spell it out since annunciation was never my strongsuit.

  2. Same as Arrens, thought of Allie or some sort of version of that.

  3. I’ve had Aella suggested as well, by a friend who can’t get to the website from work. I like all of those 😀

  4. I was also going to suggest Aelly. My husband had an alt named that when I met him so it hit me right away. 🙂

  5. Unfortunately all I see when I see ‘Aelflaed’ is ‘Elf Lad’. I’m no help whatsoever!

  6. @Stop:

    If she weren’t over six feet tall and fiery redheaded, she could get away as Elfy. But there’s not much Elfy about her. The name is an anglo saxon one meaning Elf Flower (Aelf Fleod). So you’re not far off 🙂

  7. Given her history of less-than-graceful accidents, there is a lot of potential for another nickname there.

  8. I think I’d probably end up calling someone with that mouthful of a monicker “Flay”.

    “Flay, come take a look at this?”

    “What do you think, Flay, should we kill the orc or the troll first?”

    “FLAY! How many times have I told you to stir the soup, don’t just stare at it?”

  9. Aely is what’s I’d do.

    [“A”-lee] is short and sweet, and can be said quick over Vent.

  10. How about “Fonzy” since the initial phonetic is Aay?

  11. I like Flay as well … granted, since Alianna quickly became Ally or Ah-lee it’s already taken in my mind. =)

  12. I think I’m going to stick with Aely for the time being – which is something of a combination of about four suggestions… though I’m told that if she earns herself the nickname “Lucky”, she gets to keep it.

  15. I would call her Alf. At least once.

  16. I, a bit too late it seems, throw my support behind Flay.

  17. In my mind, Aelflaed shortens easily into Ally. I think that’s what I’d call her if she were a friend or something. 🙂
