I've discovered the manga God Child
by Kaori Yuki
and like it a lot, but get a bit irritated at some anachronisms. There are, for example, a girl called Drew
. And the story is set in England in the end of the 19th century. So, I have some questions about the names in the manga.
One character is called Riffael (nn Riff). Is this a "real" name?
Another character is called Mikaila. Is this spelling ever used in England?
A French maid is called Siobhan
. I know the name is Irish, but has it ever been used in France
, historically? I doubt it.
Could a man in the 19th century spell his name Dominique
or only Dominic
used in England?
Is Grifford a "real" first name?
And were these names used in England before the 20th century:KarenEmileSuzetteNeilAlexisMarjorieArinaClydeAllen
