So. Tiffany Aching's (Discworld) name means "Land Under Wave" in the old Feegle speech. And the land under the wave is the Chalk, right?
I think not.
Or at least, not only.
So, I was rereading Lord of Shadows last night (great book, I want to hug Mark and Kieran, and then I want them to hug each other), and it turns out that another name for Elfland (Faerieland, whatever) is . . .
The Land Beneath The Wave.
There's no way Pterry didn't know about this.
Coincidence? I think not.
(Heheh, I've always wanted to say that.)
