I must admit that I'm a very sentimental person, so both parts of my name come from two different friends of mine that I've made over the years. The first part of my name, Vanessa, comes from the first friend that I ever made, and the last name, Hewitt, is the last name of another dear friend of mine. I thought that the names sounded pretty together, and ta-da! Name acquired.

How I got my name is pretty boring really. My first name is Aidan anyway, so for a lack of confusion during classes i decided to stick with it. For my last name , i really like baking and baker has always been a name i go to when writing characters so, baker it was.

I have a few go-to aliases but I decided I'd mix it up this time. Arfæstne is actually a mangled form of an old English abstract noun? And Mowbray's my mother's maiden name.

Astra means star, so that is a name with a magical aura.
Carling means a hill where witches gather, so it seemed quite appropriate.
I love creating names!

My name was originally something I came up with for my bff. She's always been a huge Ravenclaw (even though Pottermore sorted her into Gryffindor at first). I wanted to come up with a name for her to use online so I chose Rowan. She didn't have any interest in roleplaying so I ended up using it on here instead. Wildsmith just sounded very...magical.
