And it occurs to me that Welsh does not have a "th", it uses "ll" for that sound. Not that anyone I know pronouces Kallyr's name that way.

I'm not convinced this serves RR's purpose, though. We wanted an NPC created specifically to "be" his Kathy, only this time not being a complete wally, not a retro-fit of someone entirely different. Unless of course his boss is anything like Kallyr...?
