A post in a community on Livejournal got me thinking about names and what is in one. How a name can so perfectly label something that it just IS, no further explanation needed. That's how i feel about the name "Lilikka." It perfectly describes me; the sounds of the syllables, the images it brings up in my head, the way it tastes in my mouth.
It took me quite a while to find my true name. The name my parents gave me at birth certainly wasn't it. It never felt quite right, especially when there were so many other girls with the same name. As i grew older, friends gave me various nicknames, each sticking for a while, but also never truly feeling right.
Until the day i created my own model naming language. i use it to name various characters in writings that i do, to give them a more exotic flare without being an actual name. And that's how "Lilikka" was born. It conjures images of fire and justice; the name itself means "weilding fire for justice's sake" in my model language. But the name so perfectly fits who and what i am; as Master's pet, as a succubus, and as a woman.
i know i've been lax about replying to comments and i promise that will be done first thing in the morning!
