    Why is it called Highlander The Raven?

    Amanda is not from the Highlands, thought she was from France.

    I know Wikipedia is not always accurate, but the info sounds right:

    "The character Alexa Raven [played by Dara Tomanovich]was originally to star as The Raven herself, a woman version of Duncan MacLeod, hence the title of the series"

    Hope it helps

    It is true that the spin-off character could have been Alex Raven, but when they used Amanda, they dug up an old legend in which the Raven stole the sun and the moon and they sent a wolf (Nick) to bring her back.

    It was originally supposed to be named Raven and the Wolf, but one of the financial backers (French or German) said the Wolf was a reviled animal in their country, so the second part of the name was dropped.
