I'm not sure if this has been noticed before either, but I ask simply to see if anyone knows what the deal is.

Did Sunder and Hollian purposely name their son after Covenant's daughter? I'm not sure if SRD named Anele after Elena for no apparent reason (because he was out of names? No way!), or because Sunder and Hollian loved Covenant, the redeemer of the Land they so absolutely loved, that they felt his actions must be honored in some way?

What's the deal? Anyone know?

SRD was asked about this just after Runes of the Earth came out, and he apparently hadn't even noticed it himself.

Convenient that that had happened, I think.
Me thinks he has something bigger planned for Anele.

Bring back Sunder and Hollian for a little R&R with their son in the remaining stories, maybe?

SRD said that it was a simple coincidence.

Yep.

But I also agree there's something big planned for Anele. He IS the hope of the Land, after all Wink

Anele's ultimate role has always been clear to me, perhaps as soon as I read his name.
Quote:
Annealing, in metallurgy and materials science, is a heat treatment wherein a material is altered, causing changes in its properties such as strength and hardness. It is a process that produces conditions by heating and maintaining a suitable temperature, and then cooling. Annealing is used to induce softness, relieve internal stresses, refine the structure and improve cold working properties.

This from Encarta, which may be more relevant, unless Anele is going to forge a new white gold ring (and thereby become Sauron Twisted Evil ):
Quote:
make something more resolute: to make something, especially an opinion, a feeling, or an intention, stronger, firmer, or more resolute

Sounds like a it relates to a character we've grown to love or hate...

I always thought there was another meaning, similar to healing, but I don't see it anywhere... must've been mistaken about that.

Yeah, the healing thing sounded familiar to me too. A quick search found this on dictionary.com:

a·nele
–verb (used with object), a·neled, a·nel·ing. Archaic. to administer extreme unction to.

That's hilarious! And interesting because you looked up the spelling that SRD used for his name.

There's actually a term "extreme unction" which in some way relates to healing:
The catholic sacrament of Anointing of the Sick

That has some interesting implications...

If you think administering extreme unction is 'healing the sick,' remind me to come to you for my future resurrections. Razz

Only if you bring the woman in your Av with you Wink
Who is she? (I know, I should probably recognize her)

I know extreme unction doesn't mean 'healing' as in recovering from being sick... but death can be a spiritual healing.

If I could convince Tricia Helfer to go someplace with me, even if I was dying, it wouldn't be to you Razz

'tho, I suppose asking her to moan 'Gaius' during, uh, activities, would be somewhat of a turn off for her.

Tricia Helfer, that's right. In that case I sure won't be expecting you... Wink

Heck, I think Tricia Helfer would be the reason I'm dying.

Oh my sweet various fornicating Pagan gods.

'scuse me.

I'm having a Lindengasm.

Relayer, you jerk! You got Triciagasm in my Lindengasm!

Or is it Lindengasm in my Triciagasm?

Interesting..... I never even considered to try to spell Anele backwards....

My studies into neuroscience have brought the thoughts of Anele from me pertaining to discussions of Allele's, which are related to genes and chromosomes, specifically referring to "alternative" genes (not mutated, but inherently different, not of the norm)....

Every variation of the Anele that I've heard thus far holds some serious amount of water....

No. There is another.
