What’s in a name, anyway?


Dear Dad & Mom,

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you oh-so-very-frickin-much for naming me after a bean sídhe who married a giant.  The only credit that I feel is due to you is that “Oona” is at least somewhat consistent with my heritage in that according to the legend, she is from Northern Ireland.

Just remember– names mean something, and you get what you ask for.  Bean sídhes have big mouths, and so do I.


Your daughter
