Names With Meanings and the HOLLOW WORLD


As part of the Shadow’s Shade series Names: A New Perspective, guest contributor Michael J. Sullivan writes about the importance of names in his new novel The Hollow World.

I love creating names, especially when they serve a dual purpose. Usually you can’t get away with giving everyone a name that has a “special meaning” but sometimes a project comes along that allows exactly that, and it’s one of the reasons why I had so much fun writing Hollow World.
