THE ISLE OF CHURICAN
Churican, also called "the Isle of
Churican" or "Churicán" (in Styrásh), rests just off the west coast of Sarvonia
in Northern Santharia. Some believe its name to be a derivation of the Styrásh
"Chró'uricán" for "Island (that is) to wave," or, more simply "Wave Land".
Others argue that the first syllable might in fact derive from "chó", meaning
"great". This would suggest that Churican's name actually derives from
"chó'uricán", meaning "to undulate greatly". Located in the province of Vardýnn,
it is an island blessed with both hills and plains across its fertile span,
which measures approximately nine furlays from north to south and eight from
east to west at its widest point.
