    My love of names came from writing, you have to name your characters right? So I started researching names, usually by meaning, now I just go by whether or not the name fits the character's personality. Sometimes when I'm at a road block, I go back to meaning, or maybe particular sound.

    I wouldn't say I'm obsessed since I don't have a major list of names, nor do I know the meanings of every single name, but I definitely know of a lot more names than "normal" people might not have heard.

    For me, it started around sixth grade, when I was interested in the meanings of names of friends and people I knew. I kept a list, writing their names backwards, their firsts, their middles.
    In 7th grade, I really became a namenerd, Nameberry addicted!

    I found one of mums baby name books and loved it. It only had one page of boys names and girls names my name wasn't in it and it said adele meant shining bright. But I have made lists since I was seven.

    Everyone I've told has found it strange.

    I have been nuts about stories since as long as I can remember. When I was younger, my friends and I played imaginary games - you know the kind. We'd make up a story and act it out. And of course I was going after names to use. I remember how one of my earliest name crushes was 'Marian' after I saw on a board outside my older brother's school - Marian Peterson Middle School. Other crushes, mostly which I heard in books or on TV shows were Vanessa, Veronica, and Periwinkle (no, I am not kidding). Then I started writing my stories, and looking for more names. And somehow I stumbled on to nameberry.

    My mother does not approve.
