No it is not Son Godin, Wildflowergirl :( and no Romanera it is not Hippotragus :( . Very well done Renier :D the alias is roaneric :thumbs_up: :clap: :clap: :clap:

This is how I thought about the clues:


The Chevaline Project - The roan antelope (Hippotragus equinus) is the namesake of the Chevaline project, whose name was taken from the French Antilope Chevaline.

Old Norse or differently in Old Norse due to Monophthongization - The given name Eric, Erik, or Erick is derived from the Old Norse name Eiríkr (or Eríkr in Eastern Old Norse due to monophthongization).

A very Light Beard and Red Nostrils – A characteristic/appearance of Roan Antelope.

She married a Disney Prince whom she rescued from a Shipwreck - Prince Eric is the love interest of Princess Ariel in the Disney movie The Little Mermaid.

Little by Little in 1891 - Title page from the 1891 edition of the book Eric or Little by Little.

Long Legs supported by something Large and False – Roan antelope has long legs that are supported by large hooves and false hooves.

Derived from the Old French and itself derived from Medieval Latin which in turns comes from the Byzantine Greek word - The English word "antelope" first appeared in 1417 and is derived from the Old French antelop, itself derived from Medieval Latin ant(h)alopus, which in turn comes from the Byzantine Greek word anthólops, first attested in Eustathius of Antioch

= Roaneric which is the alias of the forum member

Thank you Wildflowergirl, Mischief, Renier and Romanera for participating :thumbs_up:
