One of by players asked me this, and I have no idea... He wanted to know why there's a 'y' in Tytalus since there's not 'y' in Latin.
Without digging into obscure sources for the canon answer, I'd guess that it's because it's a guy's name, and not a Latin one.
Maybe it was originally spelled differently, and the first English translator spelled it with a "Y" because he is a bad scribe.
Because "Titalus" makes Tremeres snicker.
As does Tootalus
haha, hahaha, HAHAHA!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL, ROTFL, LMFAO,
That is funny stuff.
Because Mark Ryan-Hagan didn't actually know Latin.
Y ask Y? This is Mythic Europe! It is not an "Y GrÃ¦ca", but an "Y Mythica".
I always tought he had Greek roots. 'Y' is used to write the vowel 'Ã¼' like in Olympos, Dionysos.
If the writer really was thinking about it, maybe it's just a tweak from a similar latin name. Pliny and Mark Antony were from Rome, but the original spellings didn't have y's.
