(I was forgetting what the word for 'son' was in Ercunian/Ercunic, I thought it was sun or son and derived from the same root that hwatting's word comes from, but it's actually a different root)

I see, m'lady. Gaforde is a word of old and means "reddish-brown colored".

I am the Knight of Chestnuts because such a noble fruit is the epitome of riotous merriment. Of course, of course.
