Comments for the name Valkyrie

Comments for VALKYRIE:

Personally, I think that listing Valkyrie here is erroneous, as it is NOT a name of a person in Norse mythology. It's like saying that Gorgon (from Greek mythology) was a name of a person as well, but that was not the case. Brunhilde was a Valkyrie, Medusa was a Gorgon - those were their *functions*, or 'jobs' even. As far as I know, functions or jobs are no beings and as such, their names do not belong in this database. I mean, do you see 'writer', 'director' and similar things in this database? ;-)
