Q&A: How did you come up with the name Fia?
Q: How did you come up with the name Fia? :)
A: I can't really say how I come up with any of my names. I try to keep them short, and easy; so sometimes I'll pick a letter and experiment with attaching syllables... see how it sounds. Other times a name will pop up out of the blue; and other times I'll get a great name, and realize later that it's a version or a twist of some other name from somewhere else.
With Fia, I think it sort of came out whole, and in a longer version; that was a close imitation of a name from a rather famous work. At first I was going to have a shortened form, to flip from long to short in a sort of formal/informal manner.
After a while, we decided to leave it short, instead.
Sometimes simple is best.
I love names! I can't help it.
How do you like to come up with names? Are there certain tricks that work well for you?
