I too pulled my name from a Marion Zimmer Bradley book... Senara is the name of one of the young sisters of the lead character in The Forest House.

Senara is just a name in passing and not much is mentioned about her in the book, but I liked the name and thought I'd use it.

Mine is simply my name. I'm not creative enough to think of a really cool name like everyone else has...

Mine is a shortening of a name given to me by my native american re-enacting friends... The full name is Walks In Shadows!

I earned this name during winter war games many winters ago!

Those of you that play in the 18th century will have a grasp of it.

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

Mine is from one of the vocalists in the 80's band Quarterflash-Rindy Ross. She also is known for playing the saxaphone. Anyhow I heard that name and thought it was very different. Good thread jime307 thumbs_up.gif

I just used my own first name and added Phoenix after it. I use Phoenix because of all the diffuculties and troubles that seem to come my way. I've perservered through so many so I chose the Phoenix because it keeps coming back to life after what one would think it was dead and gone.
Its also my ren faire name.

Very simple indeed, I live in connecticut and I am currently studying the bardic grade. I should have come up with something more exciting I guess. And my badger avatar is one of my guides.
