Simply because I never get tired of concept of naming; here is a Victorian and Steampunk Name Generator I stumbled upon. You may set the gender, the social class and number of names provided. I selected one name for each female social class. The real question is which one is more “Me”???
- Scientist: Dr. Philomena Achenson Camon
- Military: Commodore Diana Wakenshaw Montead
- Enforcer: Officer Charity Trassy Oates
- Commoner: C. Muledy Eason
- Clergy: Sister Mary Frances Cowry Carrie
- Aristocracy: Countess Bernice Navin Rigney
Let us deliberate, shall we? Professionally speaking I would be either a commoner or aristocracy. Name-wise the Military version is shockingly close to what my married moniker would be.
While I love the sound of Philomena (for some reason I think of music, like Philharmonic . . . or something equine related like Philip or Philly/Filly; which by the way, if I was ever named Philomena, I would go by Philly or Filly. Makes me sound spunky and wild and a little bit country. Hey, if I boy can be called Colt or Colten, then a girl could be called Philly or Filly. I rest my case.) I am just not science-minded, despite my over analytical penchant.
Moving on the Officer’s name makes me laugh. Trassy sounds a bit like trashy to me. Trashy oates? No thank you, I’m trying to cut down.
The Commoner’s suggestion is no better. I am not even sure how to pronounce it. For me it looks and sounds a bit like moldy. Eason is a solid first or last name, though.
The Nun’s story is quite the tongue twister; at least certainly a mouthful! I would like to drop Mary Francis and just say Cowry Carrie. Go on and say it three times fast. It leaves me giggling.
I appreciate my aristocracy rank is Countess but Bernice, it is almost mundane considering the prior choices. Besides, I can never look at the name Bernice without thinking of movie Hope Floats and Bernice Matise. *sniggers*
Well, I have concluded my Steampunk name will be . . . . Dr. Philly Achenson Camon! We all know that the mad scientists rule the world in Steampunk! Buwhahahaha!
