Not a confession: Taiga, how is your name pronounced if you don't mind me asking? Sorry it's not a Harry Potter related question but I wouldn't mind knowing lol.
Okay, I’m gonna tell y'all a story. I don’t tell many people this, because the first time I told this story (in an AOL chatroom, in 1996), I was laughed at.
I had some dreams, when I was fourteen or so (1993?), and these… people?… came to me. And they gave me a name. Taiga Star. And they pronounced it “TAY-guh”. These dreams happened a few times, and had quite an impact on me. Fast forward a couple of years later, and we get The Internet! And there was only one name I wanted to use. And I’ve been using it since.
Now, there’s a environmental biome ‘taiga’, a subpolar forest, and this is said as “TIE-guh”, and this really has nothing to do with that. This is intensely personal and it’s almost an honor to share it with you all. Have a beautiful evening ~Taiga
