Speaking of Prince Caspian, the book contains one of the most memorable of all the series’s peripheral characters: Reepicheep the Mouse, short in stature but long on bravery. To me he was the Narnia equivalent of Scappy-Doo, Scooby-Doo’s more eloquent little nephew: annoying. He does introduce, however, the Narnian way of naming mice: three-syllable names based on the noises they make.
The other talking animals of Narnia have distinctive names as well, often related to what they do, filtered through a pastoral English wonderland. Moles are named Clodsley Shovel and Lilygloves. A squirrel is named Pattertwig, a badger Trufflehunter. And on and on.
