    Default Correct Spelling of Drizzt's Cat?

    Hi. I'm writing a comparative essay for my English class on Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms and I was wondering if someone had a copy of one of R.A. Salvatore's books lying around and could give me the correct spelling of his magical cat. It's something like Gwynhyvar or Gwenhyvar. I don't know, but I can't continue with my essay until I find out.

    Thanks!

    Guenhwyvar.

    It's an alternate spelling of Guinevere, which is an alternate spelling of Jennifer. They all mean "white phantom."

    Cheers,

    Nope. Old English was the language of the Germanic invaders we refer to as the Saxons, Angles, and Jutes. Guenhwyvar is a Celtic word, Welsh if I am not mistaken. R.A. Salvatore played fast and loose with names, of course, since the Realms are a fantasy setting.
