So i was writing a story of my own and trying to come up with a good dragon name and so i was writing various names backwards. One of these names was River, which backwards is Revir which to me could only be pronounced as Reaver. And So i was just wondering to myself if Joss did that on purpose, like that reavers were the worst thing the alliance ever made and river was the best... yes late night musing

I remember reading a post like this a good long while ago. I agree that it is very interesting.

It could have been a happy accident, but then again Joss is a genious, and he couldv'e come up with it too.

If you watch the movie enough, lots of fun little ditties come up. My friend and I came up with this one (from memory a while ago too, so it's a mite vague):

In Macbeth, when one of the armies (I think the good guys) go to attack Macbeth's castle, they have to go through the Burnam Forest. They go through this forest in diguise however, by carrying tree branches.
In Serenity, Mal dresses up the ship like a reaver in order to get to Miranda. The quadrant they go through is called the Burnam quadrant (though I think it is spelled differently.)

We were so proud of ourselves for that one...

Yeah, Joss really mulls over names, they are important to him and he throws in alot of Shakespeare references. The name Miranda for the planet, from the Tempest. A "brave new world", also from the Tempest and Aldous Huxley's novel about the future which is seperated by classes and uses drugs to subdue the population and keep them in line. I think that's why Joss's stuff connects to people, they are familiar stories but presented in a way that is fresh and new.
