Ten Non-Standard (To Me) Names Used in Two Books On My Reading Pile At The Same Time.
1. Hiro: Japanese in origin, it usually means something along the lines of large, abundant or generous. Protagonist in Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash; the little thief king on the island in Elizabeth Gilbert's The Signature of All Things.
Me? I like Pina Colada (but mainly if its made from white rum and strawberries) and getting caught in the rain (yeah, I just like that). I like lists, Scrabble and puppies, and semi-colons are my favourite punctuation (em dashes are a close second). You? I guess you just need to like hearing me waffle on!
