My head has been recently in the clouds because of summer, so it seemed fitting.

Simply put - I love baked goods; eating and baking them!

A few of you may be familiar with the books of Jacqueline Carey, set in Terre D'Ange. If so, you'll recognize the name as one of the provinces founded by the gentlest and most artistic of the Companions.

Haha, mine's pretty funny - my name is Bethany, but when I was little I couldn't pronounce it, so I called myself Neenee. Doesn't matter that I'm not little anymore, I still get called Neenee ;D and then my middle name's Pearl, so put the two together, and you've got NeeneePearl!

NeeNee, you and my little sister will get along just fine... She still does the baby talk thing, and names all her cats accordingly... I dread to think what she'd if she had the Pets expansion! Our home language is afrikaans, so it won't mean much to you, but I'll translate the necessary: her first cat was Po-Soey-Soey (emulating the sound), the next was Issa-my-one-way. Her last was Didi until he became Goue Balletjies, which in translation is "Tiny golden ..." I was in shock. My own cat though was called Hoender ("Chicken").

Ok mine comes from AQ worlds.If anyone doesn't know what that is it's just another MMORPG.The whole game is about chaos so I named my character chaosmaster j.And I've used it ever since.

I tried to think of something clever or creative but unfortunately I don't have either trait so when it comes to screen or character names I choose names I've come across in books or video games. I almost went with Toadstool.

Swanwhite was a queen briefly mentioned in Chronicles of Narnia and I'm quite pale in real life so it works. :)

 In John Kennedy Toole's tragicomedy A Confederacy of Dunces (my favourite novel), there is an extravagant and bawdy character by the name of Dorian Greene, who is of course, a tip of the hat to the titular character of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Grey (which I believe was the first use of Dorian as a given name). Blahblaah, anyhow that book and Dorian had me howling with laughter, and I remember them fondly.

Edward Kelley was a 14th century occultist who made up some very silly things such as Enochian which is dismissed by sceptics, theologians and grammaticians alike. Also known as the second fiddle to the brighter but no less mentally unhinged mathematician, navigator, astronomer and adviser to Queen Elizabeth I, John Dee.

Mostly, however, I thought the name was darn catchy. 8)

That's some worthy blood behind your name man. I love the depth it holds. And I especially love the nutcases of world history. They are the colour between the lines drawn by history.

Joanne isn't my real name ;) The first sim I've created in sims3 was Joanne, so I have a soft spot for it.
I use it frequently for my female sims.

Haha, my user name comes from combining my favorite animal, food and color.
Cat, Sushi & Green.
I have the shortest memory ever, but I believe I added the O to make sense more.
And, then my favorite number.
It was either this or AbsentMinded05.
