I think it is appropriate to start off by telling anyone who will read this where the name comes from as it doesn’t have anything to do with the content I will be posting.
It was the summer of 2007. I was 14 (you count my age) and it was at this late time that I began to join internet communities. I had no idea what my username should be. I didn’t want to use my real name in any way or form, so I ended up taking inspiration from the name of a Greek island I’d visited in June that year. It has different spellings, but the one I was familiar with was Kefalonia.
I know the name ends on lion, as in the African animal featured in Disney’s the Lion King, but as I’m not English and read my first full book in English at the age 15 it did not occur to me at the time. When I think of the name I pronounce it following the Swedish standard.
If I am to write it using English standard it might come out something like this: Kee-fa-liii-on
