What name does Fray go by? (Fray comics)  
Wikis - it's been a while since I've read the comics - give her name as Melaka "Mel" Fray. I tend to think of her as Fray but if I were writing a story should I use "Mel" instead?

I have a book titled "Fray" that I assumed was put together from the comics. Is that not the case? It's been so long since I read it I don't remember any other name for her, but it makes sense that she would have one, I guess. I think I'd call her "Fray" in a story though.

Yeah, that's what I decided to go with. Thanks.

She introduces herself to Buffy in TOYL as 'Melaka'.

Most people who have dealings with her call her Melaka too. Her sister calls her 'Mel'; so do Loo and Harth. As far as I can tell, nobody in any of the comics ever called her 'Fray'.

Which suggests she thinks of herself as Melaka or that she's being formal with Buffy and giving her full name. Thanks.

I borrowed the comics from the library when I originally read them and hence don't have them available for a quick check.
