1. Why Sana? Is it related to the Latin, or something else?

It's a from "Strands of Starlight" and "Spires of Spirit", two of the "Starlight" series by Gael Boudino. It's the name given by the elves to Roxanne, a human witch. In their language, it means the glint of moonlight on the edge of a blade.

I was given a pre-release copy of "Strands of Starlight" by someone I respect greatly because they thought it would help me with a situation I was having a hard time dealing with. It did.

I chose "Sana" when I had to pick a "name to be known by" early in my training because Roxanne was the kind of witch I wanted to be someday. Originally it was kinda private, only used with the group I trained with and a few close friends. Then it was a "public" craft name. For the last couple of decades it's been more my name than my legal one. One of these days I'll get around to making it legal...

I still don't think I'm like Roxanne. But I'm still working on it.

#s 2-7 to follow.

Oh, wow. That's a wonderful name origin story, and completely not what I expected :-)

I've thought about using "Wykla" as an online alias. Same author, different series ("Dragonsword" Trilogy).

Wykla is the person I wanted to be when I was 18 and terribly depressed about my body.
