Some words are so cool they should be names. I finished The Shadowers (Shadows and Champions' new name) and now am trying to brainstorm some names for my next book. Maybe 3,000 years from now, these amazing English words will be found in a baby book saying: "Origin: Old English" or something like that.
Also, in my search for names, I found out the origin of the term "Mad as a Hatter." Hatters used to use mercury to make hats, and the fumes from the mercury gave them...well...mercury poisoning. Isaac Newton got into alchemy and, in his experiments, also gave himself mercury poisoning--they found traces of it in his hair. Mercury poisoning makes you a bit "mad", overly-shy and gives you a desire to be socially isolated.
