[SPEC] Sarah MIGHT be in danger!!! Some of you know I live in Sweden and that I am interested in mythology and ancient religion.
I KNEW I had read the name Lorelei before. I researched my books on the subject and found out that my suspicion were right.
Lorelei - Sarah's sister - is named after a beautiful siren who sat on a cliff above the river Rhine (Germany) and lured boatments and ships to their death with her wonderful songs.
That doesn't ring to well with Sarah going away to stay with her, or what do you think?
I might add that both Sarah and Gregory are names from european mythology too...don't quite remember which one though. I'll do some more research...
Over and out.

I dont think that has anything to do with this.

However - it wouldn't be the first time an ARG has used name-symbology in order to convey messages to the players.
And Lorelei isn't quite a usual name.
But you may have a point. Just striked me as odd though.

Uh, no. Sarah is from the Hebrew and means "lady" or (sleeping) "princess". Gregory is from the Greek Gregorios, meaning "alert" or "watchful", which is perhaps an appropriate name for someone whose three subpersonalities are Hiding, Searching and Hunting.
Viva la Revolution d'Elevage.

They have figured in mythology from northern europe too.
IIRC there is Sarah in Le Chanson de Roland and a famous Gregory in the myths of the druids.
But you are probably right though. Just made the connection from Lorelei (which is definitly german mtyhology!).
