how about the names of the Volturi?
Comment by Serena on November 24, 2009 at 11:37am
Good idea. Right now I can start with Félix which means : happy in latin.
And Jane from the Hebrew : Yehohanan. (Jeanne in French, Gianna: in Italian) who is full of Grace.

Alec comes from Alexander meaning "warrior" or "defender".
Demetri of Greek origin : "Follower of the Goddess Demeter".
Aro from the Spanish : "belligerent"
Marcus (latin) "dedicated to the God Mars"
Caius "rejoice" (latin)

I don't find that it underlines any character features in the Volturi.
Caius doesn't particularly manifests joy and "warrior" would fit better to Felix.
