This is kind of interesting...It's funny how some of these are wildly inaccurate. But I like Aden's o3o

Aden - Variant of Adin: Attractive; handsome; pleasure given. Adin was a biblical exile who returned to Israel from Babylon.
Alistair - Variant of Alexander: Defender of men; ruler. Also means avenger.
Eliot - Variant of Elliot: God on high; my God is Jehovah. From a surname derived from a medieval abbreviation of the Greek Elias. Variant of Elijah.
Simeon - That hears or obeys, that is heard
Miquel - Form of Michael 'Who is like God'.
Cyril - Master; lord
Vivien - lively
Basil - Royal; kingly.
Phillip - Fond of horses. One of the biblical 12 apostles.
Thierry - French given name from an older Germanic name meaning 'powerful; ruler of the people.'.
Ian - Gift from God.
Gabriel - God is my strength
Oliver - The olive tree, symbolizing fruitfulness and beauty and dignity, sign of peace.

Unsurprisngly, Woolfardisworthy could not be found. XD

Miquel/Simeon's design isn't final. Still don't know the color of their hair/eyes...

Rather insufficient, but I'll do some full-body sketches later for the characters I'm assigned. ;A;

HOLY SHIT. HOOOOLLLY SHIIIITLKASDJFdflksl;dfk;lsdkfjldklf; KEEP MIQUEL THE WAY HE IS, HE'S SO FUCKING HOT IT'S NOT EVEN FUNNY D: D: D: *converts to Catholicism just for him* he's so beautiful and I love his eyes @w@ *mesmerized* and his lips are like SMOKING hot, they're just so gorgeous. I would molest him in a dark alleyway, yes I would T^Tb I'm also thoroughly charmed by his lovely nose~ and Eliot is freaking rapable as always, I just want to eat him up ;A; oh Maddybooboo, your sketches are like magical beanstalks that transport me to heaven Dx

Haha, some of those names are sooooo incongruous with the characters, but some are also creepily accurate or ironic :D Aden's is awesome, and Alistair's is pretty good too *3* Ian's and Miquel's somehow seem to fit, too :D and lololol I totally misread Eliot's as 'high on God' at first 8D;

XD O-okay, if jiejie likes Miquel, we'll keep him like that :D Should we change the color of his eyes/hair? I've got it sort of sandy-blond with light green eyes right now, looks like...*squints* I can't wait to see your sketches, my strawberry crepe T^T//

I like Alie's too XD though he's kind of failing at the avenging his father thing...8D But isn't Aden's like, SO GREAT. Poor little exile ;;____;; *rubs his angry tummy* lolol Simeon's is probably the worst. XD
