In a certain rather good fantasy novel{*} that I have just finished reading, I am somewhat amused by the name of one character: Seolfor.

Which is the Anglo-Saxon word from which the modern word 'silver' is derived.

Said character is specifically described as having silver hair.

{*} mizkit/C E Murphy's The Pretender's Crown. Strongly recommended, though do read its predecessor first.
