This name seems very "ethnic" sounding to me.

The name sounds okay, but it is a little awkward for me to say.

Kudos to the makers of "GoldenEye" for giving its villain an ethnically English surname that sounds Armenian/Eastern European (since his parents were supposed to have been Cossacks). Not sure I'd ever use this name, though.

Trevelyan is a noble house in the world of Dragon Age. If the player character in Dragon Age: Inquisition is human, he/she will have the surname Trevelyan.

This name sounds like a name that would be given to someone that lives in a ghetto or ratchet place.

The family name originates from St Veep, Cornwall as per Doomsday book entry. Meaning of the name is "Homestead of Elian".

The heraldic achievements of the Trevelyan family reflect claims that they were descended from the only survivor of the destruction of Lyonesse who escaped on the back of a white horse. The Trevelyan's have a white horse rising out of the waves for their arms.

Family motto "Tyme Tryeth Troth".

Proud to have the surname and live in Cornwall (1 of the 6 Celtic nations)!
