This is in response to this week’s DPchallenge.
I chose to name myself Gizah on here. While feeding my nerd-self, I perused BabyNames.com for ideas of a creative, strong-sounding name to give one of my characters. I’m not super creative with compiling fantasy-type names. Anyway, I must’ve done some kind of search and found “Gizeh“. I like “Gizah” better because it’s girly-er looking. 🙂 Gizeh means “hewn stone”. That sounded nice to me. Hewn is the past tense of hew which means cut or shaped. I relate to the meaning.
Stone can be shaped by tools. I have been shaped by people and ideals throughout my life.
The name is simple, beautiful, and full of meaning.
