So while I was looking up potential names for other characters, I made a nice discovery. I found the name Edisa (which translates to shine along with other meanings) and decided that would be Ed the hyenas true name. It always bothered me that they gave English name to a African character when the rest of the movie cast had names that were african in origin. So now he has proper african name in my verse, one that would work for the nickname Ed, which I imagine that's what his closest associates dubbed him, I can let that little irk rest.
After I found this name (along with a few others), I decided to try to find the name meaning for Banagi and Baasho. For those who don't know, these two were hyenas created in the first drafts of the Lion King Script but were cut later on. I have plans for revamping and including them in my verse, but would like to find the translations for there name before I proceed. Thus far I haven't found anything and its really bugging me. So I'm wondering if any of you know what the meaning behind the names are. Note, I am looking for a african based meaning so unless the language is in or near africa, I won't count to meaning. Unless I get desperate.
Any help is wanted so thank you.
