Default Name that Name

Hey guys this is a thread that I thought could be interesting, but I could also just be a loser and it will die by tomorrow but lets giver a go haha

I was looking through the Vs thread and noticed that sooooo many people have names that I have no idea what they mean, so I figured lets make it trivia, everyone that thinks they can stump someone just post saying "hey wheres my name from"

Derfel, name that name

Here's an easy one.

Who is the brother to the eldest son of Denethor?

Doesn't belong here? Least I'm sure that that wasn't the idea of the thread...

But hey...what's wrong with name trivia?...

Alright, I'll stop.

I was trying to answer "the brother to the son of the king" question, unless that was a Jeopardy question-form-answer to the Derfel question.

Oh. I was talking about Faramir. If I do remember correctly, he is the younger brother to Boromir, who is the eldest son of Lord Denethor, Steward of Gondor.

I was going to ask a question about Aragorn, but he's too damn easy to identify. Same thing as with Gandalf.

Er...yeah.

If you thought that, then you missed the point of this thread. Its about your forum name (how you got it, what it means), not general name trivia.

Derfel, name that name
I did google, this is the first result

St. Derfel Gadarn
(Born c.AD 566)
(Welsh: Derfyl; Latin: Terbillius; English: Turville)
Prince Derfel the Mighty was a son of King Hoel II Fychan (the Small) and grandson of Hoel I Mawr (the Great). As a young man, he apparently joined the Court of the ageing High-King Arthur and fought for him at the fateful Battle of Camlann. He was one of the few survivors. The bloodshed he had seen made him turn to religion. He became a hermit at Llandderfel in Gwynedd, but was later persuaded to become Abbot of Ynys Enlli (Bardsey). He died and was buried there on 6th April 660. Derfel is best known for his miraculous mounted wooden statue which once stood in Llandderfel Church. It was burnt at the dissolution on the pyre of the Blessed John Forest, Queen Catherine's Confessor. Thus the old Welsh prophecy that the statue would one day "set a whole forest on fire" came true!
