I was just reading the Guardian online when I came across an article about recommended debut books. The article was written by a young woman (as per her picture) whose first name is Hephziba.
Really? I thought. Is it possible, that someone born in the last forty years could have been named "Hephziba?" Even in England? Was there a curse involved? An evil fairy at the christening?
So, having had a completely useless, non magical day, I'm hoping to pull out a last-minute productivity save by compiling my own list of the top ten witch names.
10. Baba Yaga
7. Joan Sparkfingers
5. Strega Nona
I'm going to bed now. I may revise this. Let me know if you have suggestions.
