Character Names Derived from Readers' Names



By Linda

Rather than copy Robert Jordan’s method of creating character names from mythology, history or real world personal names or place names, Brandon Sanderson derived many names for Towers of Midnight, from a list of “people who participated in the WoT charity drive a few years back” (Brandon Sanderson on Twitter) and for A Memory of Light from the JordanCon charity fundraiser.

This post contains the names of those people whose names were used for characters in the books and the chapters where the character that I think is their namesake first appeared. Some readers’ names were used for place names and these are in the Origin of Place Names article. The character names that Robert Jordan created which have interesting parallels are collected here.

Brandon Sanderson posted on Twitter “the names of people who got into TofM”. He went on to explain:

Now, know that I may adapt the name, and may use either the first or the last, depending on what strikes me.

I took note of these, and like Verin, I think I got most of them. I can be very thorough. :P

Below are two alphabetical lists linking the character names and the reader names from which they were derived. The first list is ordered by character name, the second by reader name. The affiliation of the character and the chapter of the book in which they first appeared is in both lists. The character name entry also contains the tweet in which the reader's name was mentioned.

Tweeted Names in Deleted A Memory of Light Scenes

These were confirmed to me by Peter Ahlstrom.

Caitlin Sullivan, you're in the White Ajah.
Need a name for a sister from the Green Ajah. And...the name chosen was David Emery, who entered the name of his late sister, Filis
Laura Hepburn, I have chosen your name for AMoL.
Michael Gonzalez, your name came up next.
Michael Sarcone, you asked to be a darkfriend for some reason, and I obliged.
Sally Rankin, your name came up too.

But all are in the book:

Brandon Sanderson: Remember, there is a special group of Dragonsworn in the Last Battle representing all who donated, so even if you aren't named, you're there.

Tim said...

I think a friend of mine, Edward Givens was in there as well (at least Brandon tweeted he was). Ed suspects "Edder the Redarm. Very near the beginning of chapter 19."

Good job tracking down (and figuring out) all the others though!

Linda said...

Thanks for this Tim. I had Edder marked as a reader's name, but had no matching tweet.

Jonathan Hamm said...

Jonneth here, confirming that to be the character named after me. Good job with this list. Very impressive work.

Aziz said...

Sweet, I was looking for something like this. Just one small correction, my last name is spelled "Aziz" :P

Also, there's a couple others I'm not seeing that I'm pretty sure are named after other people. Are you strictly going by tweets?

Linda said...

Thanks Anthony. No I'm not; I knew of a few others plus I worked outa few more.

Steve said...

It was a personal highlight of this book for me seeing my name in the book! Stephen 'Antail' Antill

Jon Lem said...

I just wanted to point out that Glenn Bergevin (Bergevin) and Melissa Bergevin (Raemassa) are husband and wife IRL, two very awesome people, HUGE WoT fans, and all-around awesome people.

Neth said...

I would like to think that 'Kendral' refers to me, though I have no confirmation of that one way or another.

Anonymous said...

You need to add Eleyan al'Landerin in there. ;) She's not really a character so much as a statue of a long dead historical entity...but still very much named after a reader. ^_^

Lanndon Blackmon said...

Wow. I saw my name in aMoL, but a quick search showed a "Landon Williams" as having been selected, so I figured it was his name. I had no idea I had actually been selected until this list came out. How did you get confirmation for the names that had no tweets associated with them when they were chosen?

And Eleyan al'Landerin is Melissa Craib. The above comment is correct. You could just add that entry to the existing one if you liked, Linda. Thanks for your hard work!

Deanna Kolesar said...

Actually, I donated to JordanCon for A Memory of Light and even though Brandon didn't announce my husband's name, I saw "the Battle of Kolesar" on page 549 of A Memory of Light. I am assuming that it is for my husband Daniel Kolesar, who's name I submitted in the drawing.

Deanna Kolesar

Linda said...

Kolesar is a place, and, as explained in the intro above, readers' names who were used in deriving place names are/will be posted there.

I have not yet updated the place names article for AMOL.

There are some 'iffy' names that don't fit in categories easily and Melissa's statue is one of them.

Peter Ahlstrom kindly gave me the lists when he saw the first update I made with tweeted names and a few other fan names only.

Travis Hall said...

Misspelled my name. Deoan, not Douan, page 710, half way down. ;)

Tracie said...

I'm Kitan, and my name is now Tracie Parry rather than Tracie McFarlin (I got married). I'm Aes Sedai of the White Ajah at TarValon.net :)

Also, you missed Niere. She's named after Niere, Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah, at TarValon.net (I can't remember her RL name off the top of my head). Nynaeve mentions in ToM that Niere has been very nice to her.

-Slamel- said...

You're missing both Steve Diamond and myself, Nick Dianatkhah. We are both in ToM.

Gavin Mitchell said...

Gavin Mitchell here. I was told that Gavid was named after me, but BS could have done a 2 birds with one stone move. idk...

Anonymous said...

Tina Wagner here. I'm actually in "A Memory of Light" as Lady Tinna, the leader of the Dragonsworn. I won a contest a couple of years back. I didn't know about the Towers of Midnight one actually. I saw the FB comment, and then I commented back and told Brandon Sanderson that I was already slated to be in the books. So I thought that one was scrubbed!

Linda said...

Gavin Mitchell and Steve Diamond are not on the official lists from Brandon.

Gavin Mitchell said...

That's disappointing... heartbreaking might be more appropriate. I'll have to ask him about it at the AMoL signing.

Jerm said...

I think "Jerum Mus" should be "Jerum Nus". Anyway, THANK YOU for the great work :-)

Jeremy

naath said...

It gave me such a happy to see my name in aMoL.

Incidentally "Naath" is my name-of-choice whilst "Helen" is the name on my credit card; BS didn't just randomly change "Helen" to "Naath" which would have been *silly*. (No connection whatsoever to GRRM)

Nicholas Alexander said...

Linda, I've been really wanting to know if Mika the Damane survived that attack or not. One damane there, at least, did; but oddly, Mika's fate is never made clear that I can tell, which I would have expected considering her... ethnic heritage, and who she belonged (belongs?) to. Do you happen to know?

Linda said...

Nicholas, I've just re-read that scene again, and I think that she did not survive. Only one damane lived through the first wave of atatck, and she could do nothing without her sul'dam. So she was probably Seanchan. Anway, that damane probably did not survive the second wave of attack.

Gokhan Ipek said...

Linda, misspelled my character name, it is Gokhan, not Golchan. Page 552.

Linda said...

Gokhan: Fixed it thanks.
