Stormlight Archives Character Names

14 posts in this topic

I thought it would be fun to start a topic for everyone here to write the names they've seen spelled wrongly :)

Especially if the wrong spelling is fun!

 

So here I am the first:

 

* Sly

 

* Shallon

 

* Seth

Autocorrect always changes Kaladin to paladin.

Tvlakv is a interesting one and Rock's real name, Hundusnsjsdjdnssjdjdj

I always write Hoid as Hoed, and then laugh, though I wouldn't be surprised if there was a grain of truth in the mispronunciation.

Elokar, I do also.

not gonna lie every time I type Gavilar it comes out Galivar and I have to go back and correct it.  :unsure:

Yes!  And Jasnah can write about Galivar's travels. 

 

At least it doesn't change it to Gilligan, lest we never get anywhere.

Is a native of Roshar a Rosharan or a Rosharian?  Because I've been using both to hedge my bets.  Whatever it is I've been spelling it wrong half of the time.

It's Rosharan.

 

Also there's Scadrian, Selish and Nalthian.

I only learned yesterday that Elokhar is not the correct spelling.

Our ill-fated, jam-loving ardent always comes out "Kasbal" in my mind. The most egregious of mine was in Mistborn, "Tidwyndle." But Taravangian? Nailed it.

That's why I prefer to write Mr. T :) Don't have to check if I spelled it right...

Wow, it is surprising how many names I actually got right for how fast I breezed over them. I breezed over Taravangian a little too fast though and I never really decided how I thought it sounded until I actually read the name and payed attention to it. it was always T*****v*****g*****=old king who hires assasins
