P-NO: Nomen est omen by Derekari P-NO: Nomen est omen by Derekari

[[ WV: Clyde ]]

'nomen est omen' = Latin for 'the name is a sign'

what I actually meant to do yesterday
Clyde [ KLIED ]

"This surname originated in Celtic times, and was used in Scotland and Ulster as a name for people who lived by the banks of the River Clyde, which flows through Glasgow. The origin of the river's name comes from the gaelic name 'Cluaidh', the original meaning of which is now unclear. Some believe it is derived from the Brythonic word 'clut', meaning 'the cleansing one'." - [1]

Kasimir [ KAH-zee-meer ]

"German form of the Polish name Kazimierz, derived from the Slavic element kaziti 'to destroy' combined with mir 'peace, world'. - [2]

"The name may mean 'someone who destroys opponent's prestige/glory during battle', and is derived from the Slavic elements: kaziti 'to destroy' and měr 'prestige, fame'. The latter element is also found in Vladimir, and is cognate to the Germanic and Celtic name element -mer or -mar (e.g. Dietmar) with similar meaning. It is often conflated with mir 'peace, world', thus some researchers translate the name as 'the one who reveals or establishes peace'." - [3]
so I may or may not be a sucker for meanings behind names h a
to be honest, when I created Clyde I spent the longest while deciding whether his first name will be Clyde or Kasimir - Clyde stuck, but I liked Kasimir a lot too so I made it his middle name. win-win!

also obviously the name and their meanings aren't what's really written on Clyde's dog tags but just play along with my aesthetic here ok

Clyde & art (c) me

Hnnnn I ADORE the meaning behind names. It always excites me. My own gives me a little nerdgasm when I remember Hannah means 'charming' and a group of Goldfinches is a 'charm'.

I seriously adore Clyde, and his name hnnn...it's so fitting. I should work out what Garret's name means! You inspirer, you >:I
