Winners Of the Name the Girl Contest…
Again a bunch of great ideas, and it always feels like someone (or a few of you) are in my head. I noted why below…
Janette Forman – Siofra (Irish name, pronounced She-fra)
I’d had the idea of calling my heroine “Shee” because the books are “The Girl Who…” and Janette, you gave me the perfect way to explain her nickname! AND IT’S IRISH! Double win! AND it means fairy or changeling, and she is often changing names, personas, etc in her job… TRIPLE WIN!
