Koroks named after Trees?
Similar to how most Kokiri had theme names, the first sylable being a musical note. Mido, Fado, etc... I'm thinking that the Koroks are for the most part named after various types of Trees.
Such as Rown/Rowan, Oakin/Oak, Hollo/Holly, Olivo/Olive, Linder/Linden, Irch/Birch, Elma/Elm, Aldo/Alder...
The only two that don't really fit are Makar and Drona... though, honestly I'm no expert on Tree names and Makar being different would be expected, seeing as Saria didn't fit the mold of the Kokiri names either.
Do you think this is worth mentioning? 22.214.171.124 05:37, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Koroks = Hyrule's Answer to Kodama?
Anyone else ever notice the similarity between the Koroks and the Japanese mythological tree spirits, the Kodama - at least in their incarnation in Princess Mononoke? Both are small, involve/resemble trees, wear masks or have faces resembling masks, and make a wooden rattling sound when moving. Their names are also similar. I wonder if it may have been an inspiration for them, considering both are Japanese in origin? - Somarinoa (talk) 11:49, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
- Well it seems possible. Maybe an etymology section or something? Not sure. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 17:17, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
