    It fascinates me how authors come up with names for the characters in their books, especially those foreign sounding. So thank you for sharing yours.
    Congrats and all the best with the new book, GB. So keen on reading this soon!

    It’s kind of cool that patronymics are built-in world-building…

    I think how we ‘feel’ about names is fascinating. I know when I named my children I took into account the names of students I’d had in the past! Even now when reading a book I find myself calling them to mind. I’m glad you choose wisely!

    Congrats, G.B., and thanks for the naming lesson – maybe more than I’d ever want to know? – nah. That’s exactly why I like to read things that take me to a different culture and trust the author with authenticity. – Purple Reader,

    I can see where naming conventions would turn into a rabbit hole. Thanks for the post.
