Hello Lovelies of the Universe !
Sometimes, ideas just pop in my head and it lights a bulb like «Why didn’t I think of it before ???». I am pretty sure it happens to you sometimes as well 😉 This is how this contest thing got started this morning.
You know I am looking for a general name for the girls I create. So people could say «Nolwenn’s *******» when speaking of them. Does it make sense ?
BUT I am not that good at finding names (my girls tell me their names while I am creating them). I had one in mind but it could be confusing so I decided I needed something else.
I am sure you are better than me. So here is the trick: Suggest me a name or two (remember, a general one) in the comments of this blogpost (not on Facebook or Twitter). On October 28th I will review tham all, hoping one is telling me «I am the oooooone» (lol). The person who will have suggested it will win a print of his/her choice in my Etsy Shop (and there are more to comes soon ;)) and maybe a little extra.
Sounds fun ? You can go extravagant, fun, but remember it will be kind of my Signature so something that can be pronounced lol
PS: Here are a few of my girls, maybe it will inspire you (click to enlarge)
They remind me of little pixies, the fairies they tell stories about. But pixies is a very common name, maybe you would like to use ”Chepi”, which is the native american name for pixies.
Nolwenn’s Chepis.. maybe? 🙂
They are my muses. They inspire me.
Blue Eyed Girls
ohhh I’m terrible. euhh……
Nolwenn’s Hypothetical Selfs?
ahhh I give up for now.
Definition: 1. “one of a numerous class of lesser deities of mythology, conceived of as beautiful maidens inhabiting the sea, rivers, woods, trees, mountains, meadows, etc., and frequently mentioned as attending a superior deity. 2. a beautiful or graceful young woman. 3. a maiden.
I love drya’s idea!!
we somehow could say ‘horcruxes” cause they’re part of your soul… but, hum, YOU DIDN’T KILL ANYBODY!!!
otherwise…. let me think…
nolwenn’s beauties (double meaning I like)
ok, je sèche!
‘soul songs’ are what they seem to me
I just love your paintings, Nolwenn. You have such a unique gift.
Just a few quick off the top of my head ideas.
Nolween’s Lassies/ Nolween’s Bellezza= Nolween’s Beauties
Will check back when I think of more.
Comme ce sont des parties de vous, intimes, je pense à un petit nom issu de “in”…..comme Inies, Nolwenn’s Inies…(ou Innies).
Hum…I love all the suggestions above! I would add Inner Goddesses to the list.
because they sing their name to you while you are manifesting them into life 🙂
(Wrens = 1. A small short-winged songbird (numerous genera, family Troglodytidae) found chiefly in the New World.
2. Any of a number of small songbirds that resemble the true wrens in size or appearance.)
Good luck choosing a name! (oh – and by the way – I am not sure any of us are better than you at coming up with a name! but I think it’s wonderful to get input, and to see what happens and how it may inspire you!)
J’aime beaucoup la suggestion de Muriel 🙂 !
[…] answers to my contest (here and on my francophone blog). You can still […]
I spent quite some time looking at them….I love them. They speak volumes and what I heard was:
Belle Seraphs – Belle for “beauty” and Seraphs – divine messenger.
Nolwenn’s Belle Seraph’s
Unique and lovely just like YOU and your girls. Love you!
You can break it down after that. Blonde lovelies, purple lovelies, magic lovelies and so on and so on.
hugs and kisses!
J’ai enfin trouvé ma suggestion, ce matin en me levant : And what about your “Little Voices” ?
I like “mixies!”
“Les chéries” et “the cherries” ?
“les mignonnettes” ? (je ne sais pas dire en anglais)
bonnes recherches bien sûr
I am really liking Nymph, as it starts with “N”, but I thought it needed something a little bit more to make it your own, to make it personal. Nolwenn’s Nymphemera 🙂
Elfin Earth Dancers—(p.s. your girls are absolutely fun and spectacular!)
I like the idea of Nolwenn + something starting with N
They have no mouths, they are not faeries, not pixies, not anything that already has a name….so “Nixies” sounds cute and they look cute to me
Good Luck ! ♥
So many great suggestions. Good luck choosing. I’ll add
