There’s great power in a name. Yesterday, I was reading Science Daily which — if you aren’t subscribed to this website — I strongly recommend you do.
The first terrestrial discovery of ringwoodite confirms the presence of massive amounts of water 400 to 700 kilometers beneath Earth’s surface. Ringwoodite is a form of the mineral peridot, believed to exist in large quantities under high pressures in the transition zone. — SOURCE: Water-rich gem points to vast ‘oceans’ beneath Earth’s surface, study suggests
Ringwoodite? REALLY?!?!?! What’s that unusual stone you’re wearing? Oh, my pendant? It’s fluorite mixed with ringwormite… Er… Ringwoodite. Sounds entish.
Obviously, I’m being very silly about this… But there are names I can’t stand, awful character names that sound like nails on a chalkboard to me, and locations that just make me giggle. Lizard Lick. No Name.
This, of course, brings me to my other pet peeve — more than three names for the same character! Even then, there had better be a good reason why I have to keep track of multiple names.
Ugh. Just ugh.
