*** Personally I always felt they misshandle the part of the names, I would've go for the route of "You Can't Pronounce My Name" and then having the nicknames Eliza gave them for her comfort. But in any case we shouldn't judge a non-human culture by human standers, we do know that other intelligent animals use names; dolphines and crows use special sounds to refer to individuals of their own species, but apes don't (as far as we know) so maybe naming individuals is not something all intelligent species do.

*** This might be the Spanish dub but they do refer to it as "the tallest building in New York" in one episode, thus it is taller than the WTC in this universe.

*** Yup, and there are lots of hereditary medical conditions that cause infertility in humans and still manage to be carried into new generarions, I think the term is "dormant" genes. A good example is how people with Autism and Down Syndrome normally do not reproduce and yet their conditions are genetical and run in families.

*** Indeed, and other gargoyle clans that we meet during the Avalon world tour like the one from London, Guatemala and Japan also seem to handle leadership that way, especially in the case of Japan were the rogue gargoyle Yama find it easy to betray the clan than to fight for leadership and enforce his will. Of course, this are very civilized clans living among humans for centuries, most likely things in the Middle Ages were less polite.
