Day 4- Nomenclature: What’s in a Name? #write31days 2014



Term of the day: nomenclature: the set of words or terms used in a specific subject or area.


This is basically another way of saying lingo. In many areas of society having or using the wrong lingo, terminology, or nomenclature can be detrimental. Knowing when to look for the boot, instead of the truck, while traveling overseas can save lots of time, but it goes much deeper than simple colloquialisms. Knowing when to say or use centimeters instead of inches can cause or save lives. Knowing the right thing to say in the right situation can really make a difference.

Name of the day: Bletsian.

Breakdown and meaning:

This is a name I made up specifically for my Eternal Curse Series. I wanted to create a character name that was a bit elusive, and yet powerful. Bletsian is an alter ego for the most part, but what he represents is crucial to the overall meaning of the story. Bletsian is actually an ancient Greek root for the word blessing, and I’ve used it as a name for a very special character.

Well, that’s it for Day 4. See you tomorrow.
