How do you pronounce Eulalia? I think BJ said that it was you-la-LAY-lee-a but I'm not sure.

Nope. Urthwyte in Salamandastron says it as E-u-la-li-a, and Brian Jacques confirmed it at some point.

Would it be very scary if a whole army came upon your army yelling "Fair of face!!"? :lol: I don't think so.

Maybe one of them (meaning the characters) were mistaken? After all, in a battle cry, who cares how you pronounce it as long as you scare the offending force ;)

In Ask BJ, he said that Eulalia was Celtic for VICTORY!!!I alway;s thought it was Norse. Celtic makes more sense, though.

If I remember correctly, Brian said that it was used by both the Celts and the Norse.
