And there's the Torquil in Georgette Heyer's uncharacteristic _Cousin Kate_.
(That's where I first met the name.) All he has in common with Archer's
brother is beauty, bad temper and English as [an apparent] first language,
fortunately.

(Who knows what Torquil's first language is? :D )

>Torquil is a Scottish name, via Norse (as in Thor - Thork(et)ill) & Gaelic
>(Torcail). It's a beautiful name; it also happens to be my brother's name.


Yes, I like it too - bot then I rather liked Torquil in A-G - he was the one
who called Howard "limpet boy".
