Is "Kerr" a real name (other than in Blake's 7 that is LOL)
30th-May-2008 01:41 pm (UTC)
=) It is in my universe.

Actually it is a Scandinavian name and means "from the marshland" and is most usually seen as a last name but can be used as a first name.
30th-May-2008 01:42 pm (UTC) - I googled-- yes, it is.
Originally it was a surname, but it's a first name, now, too.

It was Sir Lawrence Olivier's middle name.

Nice. I didn't know that.

Kerr is a celtic name - for the record it means "spear"
So Kerr Avon would be "Spear River"

A lot of Terry Nation's name choices have celtic roots.
Bran, Bryce,Cally,Jenna.
If Kerr had been spelt Keir it would have meant "dark"
Dana (no y)is also Celtic.
Del is actually Welsh and means "pretty"!
Travis is French it means "toll collector"
Vila means "home"

That's interesting. I didn't realize that.
31st-May-2008 12:33 am (UTC)
I love word origins, especially names.
Del also is a god of the Romany their god of the sun or "bright one" depending on your source.

I didn't know there was a Kally with a "K" out there too.
31st-May-2008 12:06 am (UTC)
Yes. Like Kerr, it is a rare first name.

Kally is an Irish Gaelic name which has various possible meanings.
Strife, war, bellicose or even church-goer.

In that vein...Cally also seems to be a rare first name which means "one with a beautiful voice."

So Kally with a "K" sounds rather more like "Kali"
Interesting for ethnologists.
Vilas in Sanskrit also means "Charming!"
