Naming Characters -The Real Reason I’ve Had Baby-Name Books for Years.

The Lee-ky Pen

So, I’ve had concept ideas of various characters for yonks now. The major ones have names (first names at least): Lachlan, Eilidh, Fionnlagh, Colin, Aggie, Mags, Malcolm, Reinhardt, Aonghas.

Annoyingly, I found a name that really suited a character, but didn’t note it down – smart, right? (Oh, I’ll remember it – my rear end, I will). Well, I’ve found a name I think it might have been, but I can’t remember.

My choices? Stick with this name or go on what could be a goose chase and later realise, “Oh, yeah, that was the name.”

So, if anyone has any thoughts on the name “Arlin” for this mystical being, shoot. Means Oath, apparently.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
