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.

My name is rather easy. Austin is my real first name. As for the middle and last I wanted a very strong magical name with ties to a magical family bloodline (also one I could make a back history to) So my middle name is Ollivander after the greatest family of wand makers. My last name for one of my favorite wizards Serius Black who is my cousin.

With my first name I wanted to honor my friend who inrtoduced me to HOL, her real name is Shadow (she often complains about it). As for my last name I was just reading Deathly Hallows and I looked at my bookmark and I saw Gaunt. I said the name out loud "Shadow Gaunt" and I quite liked it.
