  1. I really like these.

    I'm a bit behind on commenting, but your blog looks absolutely gorgeous!

    Have a lovely day!

  2. I do, too, Morgan! For awhile I used it as an alias =]

    Thanks, Jameson! I love getting comments!

    Blessings to you both ^__^

  3. arwen-undomiel.com! I LOVE that site. I go there all the time!

    Love these names! What's funny is I have a character named Donovan.

    Speaking of my character named Donovan, were you still interested in critiquing my story, Secrets of Camelot? You had offered on my blog but I don't know your email address so was unsure how to contact you about it. I COMPLETELY understand if you don't want to take on such a project, I know it's a lot of work. But if you were still interested in it I'd love to send it your way! My email address is Lauriloth@gmail.com if you want to contact me or let me know your address or whatever. Man...I feel pushy or something. It's not that AT ALL. Trust me, I understand if you don't have time to do this or whatever. PLEASE tell me if you don't want to. I just wasn't sure how to get back to you about it so I thought I'd mention it.

  4. My fave is Aranel - lovely post, Sarah - so nice to be able to come to your blog and learn some new names. :)

  5. Aww, thank you, Lady Tane! You make me happy ^__^


To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
