Reply to: The name Atreyu by Alaric
It wasn't created for the movie because the movie was based on the childrens' books by the German author Michael Ende. In the original German the name was spelled Atreju. It is possible that Ende created the name by modifying Atreya, a Sanskrit name meaning “son of Atri” or “receptacle of glory,” but I have so far been unable to confirm that.
