Default Acorna's name

Acorna is what the Miners called their little foundling, She had to be old enough for a name when her parents were killed but I don't remember her original name ever mentioned in any of the books. Anyone else?

It's mentioned in ACORNA'S PEOPLE, I believe...but I don't remember what it actually IS.

Nope. Khornya is just her people's attempt to pronounce Acorna. Notice the similarity. I don't think her original name is ever mentioned at all, just her parents'.

is her daughter's name a blend of the two, then?

Khornya + Aliliiya = Khoriilya

Possible...can't see it being a coincidence.

(Yes,) she answered. (my foster fathers named me acorna because of my horn--no one else has one where we...they...come from. But when neeva and the balakiire crew found me, it seemed impossible for them to say acorna so our people call me Khornya)
(I was going to name you Aliliiya,after your grandam,but khornya suits you.)
this is on page 169 in Acorna's Triumph
