“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet...”
Well, no offense, Mr. Shakespeare, but I’m not so sure.
Lately on my Twitter feed I’ve seen a lot of folks put out calls for name suggestions. Sometimes the suggestions are loved. Other times the tweeter needs to elaborate on their character’s traits, because honestly, Rosie is probably not the right fit for an evil demon overlord who sucks the souls out of little children. Just like Balthazar doesn’t seem to quite capture the essence of an 8 year-old boy who collects bugs and comic books. You know? Or maybe you don’t? Maybe you disagree? I’m curious what you think, which is why I’m writing this.
