    • In the German version it is Atréju. Might differ in translated versions. In the story it is a male name, but I guess with a name like that it doesn’t matter at all :-).

    • Oh I stumbled over some names on other blogs today that made me go „Oh right, I forgot that one!“. I am not good at remembering names so often I had just a vague feeling that there was a unique or weird name in a certain book and went to research ;-).
