Derek writes...

I've just starting reading a book called Strange and Secret People by a woman called Carole Silver. The book details the various origins and theories behind fairies. In the introduction she mentions a changeling called Fenella in a story called Peveril of the Peak by Sir Walter Scott. Where you aware of Fenella? Is it a coincidence that her name is so similar to Finella?

Greg responds...

Passingly familiar.

The name "Finella" is historical. So I'm not the one to ask if it's a coincidence.
