Soren was named after the Danish philosoper Soren Kierkegaard. His mother, Evelyn started reading the writtings of Kierkegaard when she was a teenager. She was going through a difficult phase in her relationship with her mother, particurlarly when it came to her motherīs religious views and views on Irish Catholic identity. Marius, Evelynīs father, introduced her to Kierkegaart to help her with that. When she was pregnant, Evelyn rediscovered Soren Kierkegaard through the old books given to her by her father. Upon discovering that Soren was Danish for "Severus" Evelyn decided to name her child Soren.

Severus didn´t want a child.
And yet...here it was...
Severus approached the cradle with feather light footsteps. It was a simple but elegant piece of furniture, made out of heavy and dark oak wood...an heirloom of Evelyn´s family, that her mother had insisted on giving them. A wealth of delicate white and blue covers and a veil of rich Irish lace protected it´s tiny occupant from the late October chill.
His long fingers drew back the covers to reveal the child to his sleep deprived eyes. A child who was no more than an hour old. A child that wasn´t expected. A mistake that shouldn´t have happened, as far as his father had been concerned.
He didn´t want a child...
Most people take parental instinct for granted...They imagine it´s only natural for parents to love their children. It just happened...But Severus knew better...In fact he knew from experience that it just wasn´t that simple...Nowhere near that simple...
And that was p
