Runes of Magic: What’s that name? “Borrofar”

Already half-way through my 44 Oz. of caffiene, and most of my most visited MMO sites, I remembered I wanted to look up some of the crazy World Boss, and Elite’s names found in Runes of Magic.

Runes of Magic, linguistically, is interesting.  It’s developed by the Korean Company Runewaker, and published by the German Company Frogster for English speaking reading players in the States.

I started with everybodies favorite Elite- Borrofar.  Oh that crazy cat-err-bear.  He loves to use his multiple spawn points and huge walk path to pull his ninja-bear moves on you before you even know what’s attacking.

I did a search in english first which actually led me right away to the family name “Borror” which is taken from the German name “Bohrer” meaning:

  1. occupational name from Middle High German born ‘to bore or drill’.
  2. German: topographic name from Slavic bor ‘pine forest’, ‘conifer’.

The area where he is found, in Aslan, is a wooded forest.  Could there be meaning behind his name?  Could it be Borrofar “bores”(or drills) “far”?  He does have a long path he takes where he sometimes breaks into a run.

Could this be it? or do you have the real answer?
