Christened

Thank you all for your help with naming my character! ย I decided what to call her last night, so without further ado, allow me to introduce you to…

(Drum-roll please!)

Allison Willow Pearl

Most of you actually liked Allison the best, but Willow was not second; I just liked it! ๐Ÿ™‚

I actually wasn’t going to worry about her middle name yet, but I just starting thinking about middle-names the other night for her siblings and Allison Willow just came to mind.

I came up with a few fun facts about her to share with you guys:

* First of all, that there are 18 kids in her family, not 17 like I said. ย In my defense, I did make up the one I forgot last.

* She has 4 older brothers and 4 younger brothers.

* She has 2 older sisters and 6 younger sisters.

* She was the youngest until her family started adopting–just like me. ๐Ÿ™‚

* There are three seventeen-year-olds and two eighteen-year-olds in the Pearl family, but Allison is the only nineteen-year-old.

* Her namesake, Allyson, was the second-oldest of five girls. ย She comes into my story “The Captured Princess Series.”

Thank you all for your help!

“The surging waters, the bright maple leaves, the even brighter flames; the ย memories of the pleasantness and the horribleness of their journey–all faded and Peter was back in the present at once.”

  1. Yay! Allison has been named! I love the name you choose for her :-).
    You have written four books in ‘The Captured Princess’ series? That’s really neat! Is the forth book the last in the series? -Savannah

    1. There’s actually five books in the series, Savannah. I finished it last fall, I think. It might be my favorite book/series I’ve written. It was the other thing I was writing that took over “Searching For His Name.” ๐Ÿ™‚
      Allyson isn’t in it much and she doesn’t do anything really special, but she’s a princess after all, which is why Allison is named after her. Her older sister is one of the main characters.

        1. Yes, actually I’ve written several others, but most of them aren’t that good.
          I don’t have “The Captured Princess Series” on the computer yet so I only have one copy. When I get it typed up I will try to get a copy to you.
          How many stories have you written besides the ones on your blog?

          1. Thanks Hanna!
            I actually haven’t finished any stories (other then the serials on my blog)! I have a couple that are … in progress :-). I have tried a couple times to finish them, but whenever I have the time to work on a story, I tend to want to work on my favorite story, which happens to my the serial! I hope to finish an actual book sometime :-). -Savannah

    1. You should be really happy, Skylar: you voted for two names and I used them both! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thanks for always commenting on my posts! It’s fun to hear people’s opinion, and you and your sisters almost always let me know!
