    Now, we know that all the Forsaken were named by those they betrayed, well, except Lanfear, but what do they all mean ?

    We know that :

    Ishamael = Betrayer Of Hope
    Sammael = Destroyer Of Hope
    Lanfear = Daughter Of The Night
    Cyndane = Last Chance
    Moridin = Death

    and Osan'gar and Aran'gar are the right and left handed daggers (poisen tipped no less) used in a form of duellng in another Age.

    But what are the rest ? What does Semirhage mean ? What about Moghedian ? Be'lal ?

    Does anyone know ?

    Doesn't Mog. mean Spider? I thought I read that somewhere, but perhaps Spider is just another nickname given to her.

    Hmm, The Spider is what they call her, and they call Be'lal the Netweaver but i don't think that's what their names mean in the Old Tongue. But who knows, maybe they do ?

    A mogheiden is a spider that slowly builds its web up, to capture its pray, etc. etc.
    Its in one of the books, can't remember which one though

    There is a few websites around with rough Old Tongue translations, i cant think of any off the top of my head, go to www.dragonmount.com and look at their links page. Should be something.
