Hudson Valley Magic for The Dream Voyager

           Someone loves Rafe!  Aside from me and Katy and some of you guys.
           Turns out "Rafe" may be more tired than I imagined, though...even taking into consideration that he's been dozing for three hundred years.  His name's apparently tired, anyway.
           So...if we were going to pep him up and call him something else, what would we call him?
           Keep in mind, he's a hotter, hunkier, more sizzling and steamy (about to be a LOT more sizzling and steamy) version of this guy...and he's a Van Winkle.

So "Raphael" is probably also out of the question.
Roy? No.
Roger? Definitely not.
 Ralph? I don't think so.


I could probably live with that.

What do you think?
Suggestions welcome.

That's sort of cryptic, but I hope it's what I think!

Rolfe? What about Ray? Ryder. Ross. Rory. Ryan - Rylan, Roman, Russ.

How about Raven? I've always kind of liked heroes with that as their "tag".

BTW, if you hit the wrong key when typing heroes, it's quite a different connotation! LOL!

Terri said...

Yep! I will have some exciting news tomorrow!
I think it'll probably end up being Richard and Rick. Maybe Robert and Rob. I think it has to be at least somewhat consistent with his time period and heritage.
Kind of like Ryder and Rory...and, as you know, I've always loved ROYCE!
We'll see how it goes.

Gina Rosavin said...

ROYCE! Of course it's perfect! Oh I am so excited! Mr W thinks I'm nuts, cause it's not my news, but just as damn good. He so doesn't get it!

Gina Rosavin said...

Trying again!

Royce - use it! Love it, as you know, I'm partial to it! LOL!


Terri said...

Yep, it's been a good week. I'm totally psyched and excited. BUT...let's not get ahead of ourselves. Nothing's definite yet. Got work to do!

I like Rory. Roger, Ralph and Rick just don't sound heroic enough, but that's just my opinion.

Terri said...

I like Rory, too. Just not for this guy. Leaning toward Ryck at the moment. That has sort of an Old Dutch flavor, I think, more in keeping with Van Winkle. I'm trying to stay closer to "Rip."

hthurmeier said...

I like Ryck! It has a great sound to it. Have you decided yet?

Terri said...

Hi, Heather.
Thanks for stopping by. Your blog is swell.
As for me and my hero to be named later...
He's been named.
I've done a search and destroy, uh, I mean, bait and switch, oh, wait, find and replace already and Chapter 1 has gone out the door.

He's Ryck.

(Until I hear otherwise.)

I'm pronouncing it "Rick" in my head. But I know other people will see it as "Rike." Kind of like the controversy over the Van Wyck Expressway

Terri said...


Thanks for following!

Shana Brodsky said...

I like Ryck - although in my head it sounds like Rike :)How about Rip? Eh, just a thought. It was great seeing everyone this past Saturday.

Wendy Marcus said...

How about Raul or Rex or Rafael. Maybe Ringo. How about the hero formerly known as Rafe. Rik. Ryker. Rube. Maybe you could rhyme body parts. Ripple. Rick. Renis. Ralls. You get the idea. I don't know how productive this is, but I'm having a blast!!!

Jennifer Probst said...

Boy, if I ever needed an R name for a character I have found many ones to pick from! I came into this discussion too late. Have no idea why you needed to change the name, but I enjoyed the comments!

Terri said...

Had you been at our Saturday meeting...

Just kidding. I've been asked to rename and revise.

I'll email you.

Great picture, but then I have always had a thing for unusual trees. The stranger, the better!

Have a great week! Personally I like the name Rafe!

Terri said...

Thanks, Angela. I liked Rafe too. But Ryck's growing on me!

Terri said...

Shana and Wendy. Thanks for your input!
