Thank you very much :)
I just want to double check that it is okay to take the name Hyzenthlay as I know it is a main character name and I don't want to step on any toes (paws)

Taking names of Watership Down characters is fine with us or at least we don't have a policy of sending hired guns to people doing it. As far as I know. ;)

Ah, welcome, I see you have met some of the others. I am Rake, you may call me...Rake.
I've missed this place.
Check out my Deviant Art page. But only if you feel like it.

Hmm, why does everybody love that name? I was under the impression it was rather silly.
And I have my reasons for the sugar high... ;)
YAY! :D

It's because it seems to sound very Watership Down-like. :)

I never thought of that, but I suppose it rather does. :D

Welcome Hyzenthlay. :)  Its not a big deal at all to use a rabbit name from the story; most of us have done so because we like the characters.  Nothing wrong with it.
