Hi Melusine et al.,

Arestrup looks like a Danish name to me.

Regarding the name Nils Runeberg, there was a Finnish national poet named Runeberg, though his family was Swedish.

I haven't read the book in question, but am intrigued enough by what people have had to say to add Borges to my reading list (which gets longer daily.)

As far as constructing a name for a character who's discussing biblical matters, I'd add to the things others have mentioned, that -bergs are often Jewish - would that make any sense?

John
