I love everyone's creativity in selecting names! Especially the Persian mythological names. I don't know that much about Persian myths. Love to hear more! I chose my first name to sound lion-like because of my favorite scene from WoT. My heart melted when Lan called Nynaeve a lioness. Sigh... Also Leonie is the protagonist from Kate Mosse's book Sepulchre. And, I am a Francophile. The last name I decide to make it sound like a Manetheren/ Two Rivers name. It is a play off of Adorno, a philosopher, I did my Masters work on.
