<g> really? I hadn't realised. Surprisingly enough, PQ arame, had it occured in Dweinasen (Rhendrin's parent language) would have produced Araw. I've always liked the name, so I thought I'd thieve it. I didn't know about it meaning "sun" in Tagalog. How is it pronounced? I would guess /a 'rau/. "Ondra" is Rhendrin for "day", BTW. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ E souvein-te della veritát que se ja dissó, And remember the truth that once was spoken, Amer un autre es veder le visaic de Deu.
