I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

A Good Name: Nona

Nona is a common short form of the name Wynona or Winona. Nona is also a numerical prefix meaning nine, deriving from the Latin word nonus, meaning "ninth." But wouldn't it make an oh-so-good name for a beautiful female orange tabby kitten?

Perhaps a silly little alpaca would better fit this name...

But maybe Nona would be best saved for a beautiful and quirky little daughter. She might look something like little Nona from the Nickelodeon series The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Perhaps you remember her. She was played by a young Michelle Trachtenberg.
