Quetchs? Grobos? Proxima? Hamalayi?

Hasn't anyone ever wondered what names of places and species mean?
Adeline must have very creative people there to think of such strange names .

Hamalayi is a link to the real mountains...

Lots of names are also French names and are pretty fun when translated.

No! The french for rabbit is lapin, not lupin.
However Lupin is the name of an hero of the french literature (Arsene LUPIN is an adventurous burglar, a sort of modern Robin Hood). I don't know if Adeline thought of that when calling this town Lupin-Bourg.

And Jerome Baldino comes from Jerome Bonaldi (a guy who has presented a lot of TV programmes in France about science and technology) but I've already told that.

Yep lapin is the correct translation....

Well you can guess names like Prinipal Island, Funfrock's fortress is there as well....

What about Port-Belooga? Or Tippet Island?

Well, appearently not enough French to know that it's lapin instead of lupin

But thinking about names is not that hard
At least.... that's what I've experienced.

Celebration island - where they celebrate the coming of Dark Monk.

Spheros - They have the shape of a sphere.

There are many places called "Citadelle". A "Citadelle" is a fortress inside a town.

That's because a citadel is a kind of fortress (can't remember the difference between them)

Franco in french :
You can look at it like the french money
But Franco is also an adjective:
Without having to pay post/mail fee (didn't know which one to use...)

About Proxima Island:
Proximite in french is:
Like in english, nearness, In the vicinity

Sups:
I Think that sups comes from Superb, because they are the most inteligant and most considered species from them all on Zeelich.

They still did use White Leaf Desert in LBA2. Desert Island is the name for the whole island, White Leaf Desert is the name for the area where the temple of bu well was....
