    As a linguist, I noticed that the name Tuomonen is Finnish: outside the usual Barrayaran source-ethnicity set of English, Russian, French, and Greek. The character's ancestry / name-origin doesn't bear on the story at all, but since it's in-universe it's not exactly "Behind the Scenes" either, so I created the Talk page and put it there. Do we have any standard for placing such items?

    While I'm at it, do we have anything like Wikimedia's Village pump / Help desk / Information Desk / Tea room forums for asking questions like this one these?

    It's covered by posting "Behind the scenes" in the relevent page, even if it's in-universe as speculation.  JAF1970 (talk) 22:26, February 8, 2014 (UTC)
