The name Nagaya, means 'bright as Ostrich.'
A wonderful name in my view, and I wish it were mine. But, it's not a
name I could ever call myself, because as a description of me it falls
on the other side of a boundary. Perhaps only five seconds a year I am
'bright as Ostrich.'
My own name means 'honored
of god.' But I suspect this meaning of my name derives form the first
Saint Timothy, a passionate young man whose fate was to be chased through
the streets and stoned to death for preaching against the Goddess Diana,
whose followers where prone to excess in all things.
