Tuesday: Name Meanings

Hello, all, drabblewriter back for round two, and today's theme is name meanings. Prompts can be anything having to do with the meaning of a character's name or the concept of name meanings. Behind the Name is a good place to look them up if you need help getting started.

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the above mentioned spoiler cut.

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
+ any, any transgender character, researching name meanings as part of choosing their new name
+ Star Trek: Enterprise, Trip Tucker, "The name's Trip - go ahead and ask if I'm clumsy, cuz I've never heard that one before."
+ Star Trek TOS or AOS, Hikaru Sulu/any, his partner uses the fact that his name means "light" as an endearment

We are now using AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2016 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out the just created Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet. For more recent prompts to write, you can also use LJ’s advanced search options to limit keyword results to only comments in this community.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.
