Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam
I’m hard at work getting Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam ready for publication as a book. Meanwhile, how about some whimsical hump day fun? Have you ever thought about what your name might be if you were a whimsical magical creature?
If you were following when I posted that tale of faeries as a serial in 2017, you might already have a faery name. (With research and personal taste, faery is my preferred spelling of “fairy.”)
Back then, some people picked their own whimsical names, and I created some names especially for people. Most people used a chart similar to what I’ve included below.
Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam is a wildly whimsical tale, but I wrote it for adults. It has a dark undercurrent. The characters include both the colorful Thistledown faeries, and “scary faeries” from the colorless world. I’ve included naming for both. If you were a part of the original Thistledown and don’t remember your faery name, just let me know and I’ll look it up for you.
Ready? To find your Thistledown faery name match the first initial of your first name to the table below. That’s your first name. To get your last name. Go to the month in which you were born. Use the same method to find your scary faery name.
Who am I? Fleur Rainbow — that’s what caused me to come up with the scary faery names! I really just can’t imagine myself as any sort of flower-rainbow… Although, maybe I’m really just Bedlam Thunder. It’s hard to say.

I’m giving away an autographed paperback copy of Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam, along with your choice of a plush hummingbird toy or a Creative Haven fairy coloring book.
Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam is coming your way, in book form, in time for the holidays.
Be sure to leave a comment to say hello. Hugs on the wing!
