“Um, Actually…” #9: Hint

I warned you this one might be hard. I’ll cut to the chase.

You have identified the part of the statement that’s wrong. Technically, your correction is right, so I’m willing to count it. I knew it would be the first answer one of you would give.

But I had a different correction in mind. I’ll say this: you’re on the right track, but you have the wrong guy. Also, the answer isn’t straightforward.

Here’s the statement again:

Some of the Specialists’ (and Paladins’) names relate to the names of their Winx girlfriends. “Nex” is a Latin noun meaning “death”, and the Arabic name “Aisha” means “life” or “alive”. The Old English name “Brandon” means “a hill covered in broom”. Together with Stella’s power source, the sun, it might paint a picture of the sun rising and setting over a hill. “Brandon” can also mean “prince”, and Stella is a princess. Finally, “Helia”, the only feminine name among the guys, is derived from Helios, the name of the ancient Greek god of the sun. Flora’s name refers to flowers, which need sunlight to survive.

Um, actually… Brandon doesn’t mean prince, Stella doesn’t mean princess aswell. Brandon was pretending to be a prince in Season 1 to protect Sky. But Stella is the princess of Solaria.

Um, actually, Nex and Riven could be used as feminine names as well. They’re both just words (one from Latin, one from English) with no inherent gender attatched. Theoretically, someone could name their daughter Nex or Riven, if they wanted to.

Um, actually… “Flora” can also refer to all plant life in general (as in “flora and fauna”).
