Hello Cagey, I skimmed through the story but I couldn't find any specific duty of that character. She is the protector of a very colorful land, that's all. I think that's why her name includes the word "colour" :/ But she doesn't do any special thing with colours. So, what is your opinion?Hello endirella.
What does this fairy do? Why might her name refer to colours?
A little more information might help us decide what we prefer.
I'm not too sure about whether the Lilac Fairy (Sleeping Beauty?) is related to the color, the flower, or both. The Blue Fairy (Pinocchio) is actually blue, the Sugar-plum Fairy (The Nutcracker) is in charge of sweets, the Tooth Fairy is in charge of teeth.Some of the better-known fairies are noun + noun: the Lilac Fairy, the Sugar-plum Fairy, the Tooth Fairy.
I would look for a physical attribute of this fairy. If 'colo(u)r' doesn't necessarily relate to the fairy or her duties, perhaps you can come up with your own name?Hello everyone,
In a book I'm trying to translate, there is a character and I don't know how to translate her name. "Fairy of Colours" or "Colour Fairy". Which one would you prefer?
Thanks in advance
But... we only have a suggestion that the land is colorful, not that it's called "Colours" or "the Coloured Land."If she is the protector of the land I would think the Fairy of Colours could be a good alternative, compare it with the king/queen of X-land or Gilda, the Good Witch of the North in the books of Oz.
Thanks, Myridon!If her hair is like a rainbow and none of the other fairies have rainbow hair, you might call her the Rainbow Fairy (or perhaps the Multicolored Fairy or the Particolored Fairy if it's not exactly a rainbow). "Color" would not really describe something that has lots of colors.
Thank, irinet. Since it is a translation work, I didn't think of a new name that comes from my mind but translation doesn't mean that I can't be creativeA good fairy is always a soft, delicate creature. I would choose a name that indicates these qualities and other more disclosed in the story. A fairy's name should be gentle as a touch and enchanting like soft whispers to the ears as their stories always are. For instance, 'Hue', 'Mellowness' , Vivid' or 'Tint', even 'Rainbowee' (you are allowed to be inventive) are sonorous names and likeable to our hearing. I would advise you to think of these ideas when picking up a name. You may even think of a Picture Snapshot Name if you can be allusive. Make it beautiful for this is the place you can freely create; close your eyes and imagine the land which is colourful because of happiness and much joy all around, then think of your fairy's role in such a fantastic world. Be free and Paint the name!
