Mine, as most of you know, is a character from my Mom's book, who is half eagle, half human(an Eagle Spirit) and has wings and feathers for hair. Hoonah is also an Inuit(I think?) village in Alaska and means "Village by the Ciff."
It is sort of an inside thing with Mom and I, as she uses another Eagle Spirit as her online alias(Aenon) and we call them our eagle names. It is kind of like we are those characters...or, sorta...claimed them. To Mom...I am
Hoonah...which is awesome for me. Oh...and it works out, because Hoonah is Aenon's daughter. Ok...I do not have to tell you the whole book so I am going to shush, now.
I do not have a nickname from Holly, yet...
