Reply to: Ryvers? by Eliz

Don't quite get the poem ...checked out the site briefly, but maybe I'm a bit age challenged ...

Anyway, ...Ryvers seems an obvious transliteration of "Rivers", but seemingly a rare one. I couldn't find it on several of the sites I normally find alternate spellings of common names. I may be way off base, but my bet is that a creative ancestor threw a 'y' in for an 'i' to add "flavor" or “prestige” or whatever …
