Corvidae Says:


Vala (VAH-la, according to old Welsh) is one of those names that mean different things in many languages. In German is means "Singled out", but in Welsh in means "Chosen", in Old Norse "Fortune Teller, Prophet" and in Farsi "Superior". Names with multiple meanings, as amazing as they are, often need more care because you never know their true origin.
