Do we have any canon etymology or hints as to where the name "Tzimisce" comes from? I came across a reference to a (real) "John 1 Tzimiskes" recently, but don't see much relation betwee the two. Just curious. [[Special:Contributions/50.30.49.11|50.30.49.11]] 20:53, February 5, 2013 (UTC)

[Tzimisce] vs. Tzimisce

As noted on the Antediluvian page, it's standard practice to refer to an Antediluvian as [Name] so as not to confuse it with the clan; especially when the real name of the Antediluvian is not known.

The Toreador Antediluvian, for example, may be referred to as Arikel or as [Toreador]. Since we don't have another name for the Tzimisce Antediluvian, we must refer to it as [Tzimisce].

So please don't "correct" these instances. They are not malformed links, they're intentional references to the Tzimisce Antediluvian rather than the Tzimisce clan. --IanWatson 23:33, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC)
