Give it a convoluted nickname!

[name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] is associated with money, which you get from the bank. [name_f]Banksy[/name_f] is an artist whose name contains the word bank, and nobody know Banksy’s identity is unknown. We also don’t know if alien’s are real. Alien is a weird nickname, therefore Benjamin’s nickname has to be [name_m]Al[/name_m].


susannah has a meaning of lily, and the lily flowers are commonly used in funerals, to symbolise rebirth. in some retellings of the greek myth, persephone as the queen of the underworld could be suited to a ‘goddess of life and death’ style role. she was said to eat pomegranate seeds, and pomegranates are a fruit. another fruit i find audibly similar to pomegranate is plum, so susannah’s nickname is plum :relieved:

[name_m]Yosef[/name_m] is a Hebrew name that means “God will increase”, which is where the name [name_u]Joseph[/name_u] originates from. I wrote a book with a character named [name_u]Joseph[/name_u] [name_m]Ian[/name_m], and the middle name [name_m]Ian[/name_m] means “God is gracious.” There are so many names with meanings related to god/gods, and a theophoric name is one that uses the god’s name itself–because “theo” means god. The name [name_u]Theo[/name_u] is a great nickname for [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], but my favorite one is [name_u]Teddy[/name_u]. Thus, Yosef’s nickname is [name_u]Teddy[/name_u].
