Lady Ariake:
"I'm not sure that the naming process for FK was quite
as pointed as Rowlings's, though....  And an FK
question for the better informed: where the
heck did he get the surname 'La Croix?'"

actually,  i think the naming of nick's master was as
deliberate as any of the names in rowling's books.
Lucius Lacroix = Bringer of Light; the Cross.  very
few names one could give the character more ironic
than that.

Besides "unlucky"?

I don't remember where I got these translations from, but I made sure that I
copied them for further reference:
Lucius = Light
Lucien= Man of light
Also, ironically, Nigel= Dark!

Subject: Re: The name LaCroix and more!

I have always suspected that there was a definite
attempt to use names that have Christian derivations.

   LaCroix = the cross. Lucien (Lucifer?)

   Natalie = (Italian for Nativity) as in Bono Natale
[I'm not sure of the actual spelling but it means
Merry Christmas)

   Nicholas = possibly from St. Nicholas? But it is a
fact he was a "Knight" in the Christian Crusades.

   There are probably other instances too.

    We'll back to lurking!

Hey Victor,

The name Natalie according to the translation that I have means 'born on
Christmas day' and Nicholas means -'victory of the people' !!

Yes, I'm sure that there had to be some thought and true intention behind
the naming of the characters in FK.
btw, the name Divia translates as 'Little Goddess' !

hoops!  my bad.  I had--i think--in my last little
post put down LC's full name as Lucius Lacroix, when
of course in the time of the show it was LuciEN.
which is what i meant.  Duh.  i thought it best to
apologise right away so as to minimize my incurrence
of the Cousins' wrath.

Subject: General Apology & "Stuff"

Good Morning all,

Soooooooooooo very sorry to take up band width with this, but it seemed like
time to let folks (other than my "private" cc list) know what is going on.

I want to tell all of my beloved Forever Knight, Highlander and Tracker
Friends that I am terribly sorry about being so behind on dubs for you all.
I do have all the tapes and all the eps of Tracker, as well as that "Mega
List" of my collection that I posted to all three Lists (FK, HL, Tracker) a
while back...but a lot of stuff is packed.  Lots of folks already know this
stuff (below), but just in case:

Mark (my SO) PACKED all my FK, HL and Tracker Tapes without me knowing it.  I
thought I could get to them, but the boxes 'o' tapes are sorta mixed up in
the utility room and I am having some trouble getting to them.  We did indeed
move (into a house with a REAL ROOF <g>, it no longer **rains indoors**), but
many things are in disarray.

The Hospice Organization that was so hot to hire me **fired** me just days
after they publicly fired the RN General Manager who had hired me in the
first place--no worries, though.......I have **plenty** of other offers.

I fell and injured my back and left hip last Thursday, so I cannot lift boxes
of tapes just yet, and Mark, Jim and I are all on different schedules.

My roommate and long-time-friend Jim's (all black) cat, "Nikki" joined our
cat (whom most of you will remember) D'Jah at The Rainbow Bridge on
Monday.......so things are a bit sad around here right now.  Nikki **waited**
for me.  I was in another county, and I was able to get to our Vet Hospital,
hold him and say good-bye.....then he died peacefully, with no pain, on his

Soooooooooooooooo, as usual, things are wild and wacky at Billie-Lee's house.
 I am terribly sorry for the delays.  I think I have most everyone's "wish
lists" as far as FK, HL, alumni of both and Tracker, etc.  If you are in any
doubt **at all,** though, PLEASE send me your wish list, what I may owe you,
your mailing address and such to:


Yup, my e-addy is the same.  I am happy to share my new mailing addy and
phone number(s) off list should anyone want/need them.

Thanks to you all for your patience and understanding.  I thought I was ready
to start dubbing again, but it looks like it will be this coming weekend
before I can do it.  PLEASE let me know if you are at all concerned that I
may not have your wish list or other info.  I promise to save all such info
to my hard drive this time, to keep from losing it!!

My love and hugs to all, with many thanks for all prayers, warm thoughts, and
good wishes that have come our way from such a wonderful bunch of people.  I
wish all of you a most Blessed Holiday Season.

BTW, as a way of saying thanks (waves at LD for stealing her idea <g>) I will
be making a yahoo photo album of Nikki and our other fur babies.  It will
take me a bit, but if you are interested in seeing it, please write to me off
list and I will be **happy** to share the URL once it is finished.

Forever Yours,
Forever Peace,
Forever Hugs,
