    in the style of kootenstoopits (cute & stupid), perhaps pickensrooters means big & ruder... just a thought

    Has anyone found reference to the word/names pickensrooter or kootenstoopit outside ATT? Are they totally made up by MS?

    Default pickensrooters

    I looked up the various names in "World Guide to Gnomes, Fairies Elves and Other Little People" written by Thomas Keightley and the only one that was listed was urchin.

    Default pickensrooters

    I've been mulling this around for awhile. This fairy sounds like a play on words. Pic - kens - roo- te -rs.

    Maybe pic (picture), kens (knows), arrows, tea or tee, arrows.
    The things that come to those that wait may be the things left by those who got there first.

    The first time I saw this book, I immediately thought that the pickensrooters in Ye Nom... looks like Brian Frouds type of fairies (especially they eyes, these are originally characteristic of Froud's fairies (He made a book called "Fairies" with alan lee and also one called "Good Fairies/Bad Fairies")

    Also, according to Froud's book "Fairies", the pooka is a shapeshifter that can sometimes change into a dog (as well as other animals, but is often known as a meaner type of fairie). Pook (anglo-saxon) or Peck is suppose to be another name of Pooka.

    I know this thread is old but I just noticed the last post...
    I too noticed the similarities to Frouds "Fairies" as soon as I saw the Ye Nom... pages. In fact I went and pulled out my copy of "Fairies" to compare. I immediately saw something but I didn't want to share because if I was wrong, I didn't want to seem foolish - if I was right, well maybe that would give me an edge...

    As this is not helping me at all, I'll throw it out here & see if anyone else can do anything with it ---If so you do have to "share"!!

    The red-headed pickensrooter that appears numerous times in the book is clearly NOT a purebred -- he has characteristics of both a pickensrooter AND a flower fairy -- he is a halfling --Just like Pook and Ana.

    I have thought all along that he can help with finding Pook. And if you look at him on page 101, he clearly knows something.
