Thank you everyone, for the many great names you sent in for the Name Mia’s Baby Contest! I loved receiving your entries and hearing how much you're enjoying the adventures of Celine and her friends.
It was very difficult to choose a final winning name – so we didn’t choose one.
We chose three!
That’s right – we have three winners!!
That's because Mia will be having twins.
But now you’re thinking, “Wait a second, Lorna! Don’t you mean triplets?”
No, just twins. :) The third winning name goes to a dragon you’ll meet in the third book in the series, Dragons of Remini, to be released this coming year.
Here’s a bit more good news: If you didn’t win this time, please don’t give up. There are more contests to come! And the prize in at least one of them will be another wand!
Now there you are, reading patiently, and I’ve kept you waiting for winning entries. Okay! Back to that.
Mia’s twins will be a girl and boy. Their names, as chosen by Team Nibiru (and with Mia’s approval, of course) will be:
Kai – submitted by Kai Brozuk from Victoria, British Columbia
Rita – submitted by Maureen Sullivan from Apache Junction, Arizona.
The surprise third winner is:
Fallon - submitted by Fallon Martens from Penticton, British Columbia.
The winning names were chosen based on meaning and on sound – integral elements in writing The Dragons of Nibiru.
Kai – pronounced “Kye” – means “warrior” in Frisian and “victory” in Chinese.
Rita means “pearl” in Italian; in Persian it means “child of light.”
Fallon means “leader” in Irish.
Congratulations, winners! I hope you love your new wands. Use them well!
And thanks again to everyone who entered. As I mentioned, there are more contests on the way. The first one, coming up this spring, is “Name Celine's Wand.” The prize will be a large dragon sculpture, similar to the one in the image below.
I really look forward to your suggestions, and wish every one of you the best of luck!!
In the photo above, Maureen’s wand is on top; Kai's is on the bottom.
Here's another view, with Kai's wand on the top this time:
Here are the winners, with their new wands:
That's Fallon's new wand above. And just below you can see Fallon herself!
