Old Tongue Translations/Meanings of the Forsaken Names

These translations and meanings were taken from The Wheel of Time Companion. There are more than 13 names because some of the Forsaken were brought back after death, by the Dark One, and given new names. However, I have simply listed the names in alphabetical order, as to minimize spoilers.
