I'm afraid there's a misinterpretation here. Berethon is nicknamed "The Lord Peregrine," but that doesn't make him "Peregrine Berethon," does it? Unless it is I who am misinterpreting. --LelalMekha (talk) 22:05, February 11, 2014 (UTC)

  • Hmm I could definitely be wrong to be honest, is there another source that says he's nicknamed the Lord Peregrine? To be honest I'm quite fond of it being his name but it makes sense in context as either as far as I can tell. Ayrehead02 (talk) 22:20, February 11, 2014 (UTC)
  • Yeah, reading the SW Blog, it's unclear on how they mean it; as a title or a first name. I supposed you could leave a comment at the end of the blog or reach out to the authors. <-Omicron(Leave a message at the BEEP!) 22:22, February 11, 2014 (UTC)
    • I had this conversation with Paul R. Urquhart on Twitter. It seems that Berethon was a common first name among the Corellian royalty. --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 10:21, February 14, 2014 (UTC)
      • So he could be called Berethon Peregrine? Or is it definatly just Berethon? Ayrehead02 (talk) 10:36, February 14, 2014 (UTC)
        • Hi. My intention was that his first, and only canonically specified, name is Berethon. "Lord Peregrine" is a sort of title or nickname, an echo of the Corellian legend of the Peregrine, the man who can't go home again (which gave me shivers first time I read it in DFR), and also a nod to the fact that peregrini was the usual medieval name for the crusaders, one of the major inspirations for the Jedi Lords (in Latin, it literally means "foreigner" or "traveler", but as well as becoming the name of a type of bird, it's the source of our word "pilgrim", too). It refers to the fact that Berethon had to leave whatever responsibilities he had on Corellia to go off and fight the Sith. Author's intent, which may not matter for much, is also that Bardiche is a reference to wikipedia:bardiche, a style of blade, not a material. No idea how much of that entered the holocron - it's more about giving the story resonance than anything else, hinting rather than defining. Paul Urquhart (talk) 00:01, February 28, 2014 (UTC)
          • Just as I suspected, then. Thank you for the clarification. And you just provided a good chunk of relevant "behind the scenes" information! --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 00:05, February 28, 2014 (UTC)
