Foaly's last name?

Post by 017350 » Fri 11th Jan 2008

I think that this is the proper category to post this in. Does anyone know Foaly's last name? I'm writing a story on FanFiction, and I came to a part where I needed Foaly's last name. Did Colfer mention it in the book? Does anyone know?

No, it's never metioned. But they are like less then 100 centaurs left, im pretty sure it's not to hard to look one up in the phone book ;)

No.
Maybe someone could write to Mr. Colfer and ask him. It could be that since centaurs go way back in time to before last names were developed the centaurs never got last names. :tinfoilhat:

I came to that same question a while ago...so far the only answer I've come up with is "The Centaur".

I don't think writing to Colfer will help. I heard he doesn't answer a lot of his fanmail
You could make up something creative on your own. Its a fanfic, so it doesnt have to be all af book fact :D

I don't think he has a last name... since he's called 'Foaly the Centaur' when it's extended, there probably just isn't a second name to add to the first one. It's probably because, as gothiclollipop said, there are too few centaurs left for you to mix up one with another even without last names.

After all, humans didn't have last names for a very long part of our history... they would just be (for example) "Bob from somewhere" or "Bob the tailor". So since centaurs don't have last names, Foaly is just "Foaly, LEP technical consultant" or "Foaly the centaur".

I like your reasoning MMK. That makes sense now. I might change his e-mail name to "Foaly the Centaur" instead of just "Foaly" in my FanFiction, "Artemis and the World of Snow". :D
