Talk:Book of Mudora
I believe those symbols are a form of gibberish Hylian, the same that's being used in several parts of aLttP.
Ancient Greek translation of Mudora/Medora
Is there a source that confirms that Mudora/Medora in Ancient Greek means holder of knowledge because I've been checking on it throughout the internet & haven't been able to confirm it. I'm interested in the breakdown of the name Mudora and which part means holder and which part means knowledge. Thanks. Wtc4ever (talk) 20:04, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
- It's fake, because the Zelda fandom is rife with fans making fan theories based on absolute nonsense that they are trying to pass off as fact. "Tutor" is Greek: προγυμναστής (el) m (progymnastís), not "Mudora". I'm fairly certain that "Mudora"/"Medora" isn't even a word that fits Greek conjugation or word-construction. Given that the book's use is to allow Link to obtain two spells and magically open a temple door, I have an inkling that the intended meaning is Mudra, which are the basis of the magic hand-signs in stuff like Naruto. Basically, Link was a magic ninja before it was cool.KrytenKoro (talk) 20:11, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
- I definitely found websites giving the meaning of a Greek female name of Medora but it wasn't anything like holder of knowledge. If it was true I was hoping to fit it into a theory I was starting to put together. But thanks for letting me know. Wtc4ever (talk) 20:26, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
- The book is consistently named "Mudora" across the versions of the game, but in any case, the various sites I've found giving meanings for Medora are far from impressive -- they differ in suggested meanings, and the kicker is that none of them actually list the greek spelling; I'd guess that they are confusing it with the Greek sorceress, Medea. In reality, the name appear to have been invented by Lord Byron in his poem The Corsair.KrytenKoro (talk) 21:26, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
