|07:58 am - A lead on a last name|
Sitting here in Chicago, I get this email from my bro, red_sput, regarding our last name:
Following is an excerpt from : No, it can't be that. No way. No one here would ever think that this is the derivation of my name, right?
n. 1. One who dangles about or after others, especially after women; a trifler.
There's been a lot of speculation regarding what our last name actually means. I think my bro may have just hit the nail on the head, at least with me *grins*
The more I think about it, the more my name is the perfect, most descriptive name ever. I have what is quite possibly one of the top five most powerful names for a ceremonial magician to take when working with angels, demons, and assorted other spirits (Michael, "he who is like god" and leader of the Host), and now my last name appears to mean something that many people might perceive as a primary descriptor of my actions on this realm.
For such a run of the mill name, I have a freakin' good one.
And there's no excuse for me to ever choose a "magical name", thank you very much. . .

Holy PERFECT NAME, Batman!!
Now get your ass over here and take off my clothes.
Damnit, why am I even further than usual from you? *winks*
For some reason, when I first heard that definition it made complete sense to me as well:-p
That is really cool. I have always loved the name Michael, it always seemed very powerful. Probably because of my Catholic background.
My full name means "Noble beloved one who dwells near mountains," so I've never felt a need for a "Magical" name either.
Sorry, names are an obsession of mine. :)
You're sure "Dangler" doesn't have something to do with... errr, "bits"... as well? ;D
*mind wanders off to its happy place...*
A hot tub at Desert Magic is where you're most likely to find out for yourself. . .

Linda means beautiful, and I *think* that Costello means castle, so I am either a beautiful woman in a castle or just a beautiful castle. I like both.
