Okay, finally caught up on Ask Greg.

Greg writes: ""Anton" sounds Germanic?"

Anton was, at one time, an extremely popular boy's name in the Netherlands, in part because collaborators wanted to gain favor from their Nazi overlord, whose first name was Anton. Since the Dutch are a Germanic people, Anton could be considered quite Germanic. Admittedly, Sevarius doesn't *look* that old, except perhaps in his first appearance, but something to think about nevertheless.

Greg responds...

Hmmm. Okay. But of course, there are plenty of people named Anton without any justification beyond "My parents just liked the name."
