My legal, given name, the name on my birth certificate, is Lythande.
It’s an unusual name, and furthermore is the name of a fictional character created by Marion Zimmer Bradley (not that anyone seems to know that – can we say “obscure”?), so I’ve been asked what language it is, where it came from, how to say it, and if it’s my real name.
The language is made-up. It came from a book. I like it pronounced “Lih-THON-deh”, but it nromally comes out “La-THON-da”, and I’m fine with that. And… Yes. Yes it is my real name.
And now you know why the site has that mouthful of a title. :]
