A Murder Most Foul

Post by MichaelM » Mon 18th Feb 2008

I just had an interesting email.

Hi. Regarding the origin and meaning of the name "Artemis Fowl":

If pronounce the name with a bit of a slur, I think it sounds like "a murder most foul." Does anyone else interpret it thusly?

I'd never thought of that, and I kinda see it. Have any of you ever said the name like that? :)

Hmmm. I never really thought of that. But I always pronounce the name clearly anyway :P But it is interesting.

I don't think most people would generally say it like that, but cool. :razz:

No. I never thought of it like that. I really don't think that they sound anything alike.

Come then all of you, come closer, form a circle,
Join hands and make believe that joined
Hands will keep away the wolves of water
Who howl along our coast. And be it assumed
That no one hears them among the talk and laughter.

They sound somewhat alike, but i never thought of that. And Artemis Fowl doesn't like to murder people, and he especially doesn't like to get murdered.
