When "Tuon" reached 6 years old she reached her "True name" date and she received the name Tuon.

After she became the Empress, her named evolved into Fortuona.

Can we assume the same evolution happened on her True name date. If so then when she was born was her name Uo, On, Un?

If something else significant happens in her life will her name evolve again? If so what is waiting for her next?

O'Fortunavelut'luna?

Perhaps she didn't have a name before then, or she had a pet or baby name that didn't contain any elements of her true name.

As for further ascension, presumably she'd have to rise to a rank higher than Empress. That isn't possible unless she embraces channelling and becomes Amyrlin, and it's debatable whether that is a rank higher than Empress.

I imagine her name as an ever evolving creature. The baby stage of it was a baby-like sound like I mentioned earlier.

Later in life, if she does great things, like conquer new lands, expand the Empire in any way, she would get a better and better name.

Her being Amyrlin is not impossible, you don't have to even CHANNEL to hold this position. I imagine when Egwene dies at the hands of Galad (since he IS a whitecloak, it was forshadowed in Book 9) they will need a new leader and what better person than Fortuona? She has great leadership experience, and she can rectify the chasm between the Aes Sedai and the Seanchen.

Of course, she will probably become Amrylin automatically after she holds the 9 rods of dominion which will be reestablished after Perrin the Dragon Reborn's death.

I wouldn't be surprised if we saw an element of this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortuna) concerning her.

We already have - she's lady luck, wedded to the biggest and best gambler the world has ever known.

Its obviously this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_Fortuna)



this will be her named in full before she dies after she accomplishes everything she needs to.

Or maybe she'll have two kids with Mat - Plango and Vulnera, as prophesized here (http://www.tylatin.org/extras/cb2.html) :D

I hope her mother's name was Rad when she was a baby.

Hopefully her mother watched this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xblh12XgQ4o) before naming her.

Actually this makes me think of her like a pokemon, so she has no more evolutions. And honestly, her name sounds like something out of a pokemon game.

hah. Lady luck with Mat. That's good stuff right there I don't care who you are.

Just passed a part in the beginning of CoT that talks about her names and had the exact same question. Wonder if that's in the notes.
