One Specific Aon

Recommended Posts

It's a coincidence and the words aren't even pronounced the same. Aon Ati only exists because Brandon based the character of Matisse on a real person, Aonic names require an Aon somewhere in them and 'ati' was the only part of the name that fit the rules for Aon naming. This was well after Brandon had already decided on Ati as the name for Ruin's Vessel. We don't have a citable WoB on the subject but site admins have stated that Brandon has told them it's a coincidence in conversation. One example here.

There are other examples of linguistic similarity in the Cosmere that are also coincidences, such as a word Nalthis and Roshar have in common.
