I love names of a variety of origins. I've been interested in etymology since about 1998. I also love reading, writing, history, dress making, music, and movies. I have written a short story and I'm working on a novel right now. I love to travel, though I haven't done much of it lately. I've been to 24 of the 50 United States, Canada, Jamaica, England, Belgium, Monaco, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, and France. My goal is to see all 50 states and visit every continent.
