Oh, I’m so sorry!
I didn’t know you hated humor!!!
Jk, jk. I really didn’t mean for my juvenile humor to ruin a name for you. Now I feel like Homer Simpson.
That said, I believe Tangriel is the superior name, and here’s why:
It sounds vaguely similar to the chief deity of the Central Asian steppe people, Tengri. While he is the primary creator deity, he also functions as a death god, because he created humans to die, which I haven’t found any explanations for, but Vivek mentions that Vartageth did not accept weakness, and life in the steppes were harsh…
Just my thoughts. All the names you suggested are acceptable and more importantly, easy to read, so any of them would be a good choice.
Tengri was imagined as a goose.
I’m not saying this was mean to be—actually, that’s exactly what I’m saying.
What if all these geese that make it into the compound are really just emissaries of the-archmage-formerly-known-as-Vartageth trying to help but they keep getting killed???
