Default Re: Elizabeth Moon - Trader Kylara Vatta series

On another note, I wonder if one could make a productive drinking game (ie - one that could get you drunk) out of noting every time a name of Pernese origin is mentioned in the Vatta books. Maybe it's just Kylara and Sharra that she's used, but they stand out given Moon's known association with Anne.

Certainly it was daring for her to name her heroine after a notable Pern villian, and I'm curious to the backstory there -- why Moon decided to use it and what (if any) conversation she might have had with Anne about it.
