Buckskin Alicorn

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

A quick Elfwood search reveals that on every picture identified as an 'alicorn', at least seven people have left a comment to this effect: 'Nice pic, but the name is wrong. An alicorn is the horn of a unicorn.' So to hopefully forestall that sort of thing, let me point out that the name of the alicorn pictured here is from 'aille' or 'ali' (wing) and '-corn' (horn). See? Wing-horn, a flying unicorn. I can understand how it could go both ways, of course, with a derivation of 'licorne' or even 'a li corne', but as far as I'm concerned, in this particular case, an alicorn is a unicorn with wings. Anyone who feels the urge to comment with ''scuse please 'alicorn' is a unicorn horn this is clearly a unisus/pegacorn/griffin/cerapter' can save himself or herself the trouble.
