What’s in a name? To me, penury sounds like a village in England where ancient, knobby cottages surrounded by pink hollyhocks and yellow roses settle along the road. I prefer that image to the destitute meaning the word really has.
The other day, I watched a TV program where a young man had discovered ice skating as a relaxing hobby. He was quite good and even competed on the amateur level. It was important to him and, when considering a move from the United States to Turkey, he wanted to find a rink close by, and he did.
Names and their meaning, or even what they seem to mean. Something to consider in naming characters and locations in your current writing.
Ice skating in Turkey. That’s almost as interesting as Polo in Penury!
