|This is me taken by my husband, Mark aka Tamirisc|
Initially, I started using the name for spiritual reasons...I suppose you could equate it to a baptism when you take on a name. At that time it was important for me to move forward spiritually and it still is.
The name also lends itself to parts of my heritage. I am part Cherokee and proud of that fact. As I never had a Cherokee naming ceremony as a child (which is supposed to be given and done by ones Grandmother), my husband chose the name "of the Grey Wolf" for me. Such that I am of the Grey Wolf clan.
Therefore, my whole name is Naila Moon of the Grey Wolf.
As some more time progressed, I began using it for my writings and photography. I suppose you could say it is now a pen name so to speak. In fact many people only know me by this name and no other.
This is a name that honors me, part of my heritage, my spirit life, as well as my regular life all wrapped up in a nice big bow. I kind of like it that way.
What does your name mean? Do you go by a pen name? Tell me about it.
