It’s funny how the name ‘Dawn’ seems normal, but her etymological siblings are not. For example, the only people I can think of called ‘Sunset’ are found in the colourful literature of sixties hippy culture. ‘Twilight’ is probably there too and clearly a free-spirit. Mind you, if she were my daughter I would have to give her a middle name beginning with Z.
My wife feels she is more of an ‘Elevenses’ kind of girl, although to me the name looks more like it belongs to one of Frodo’s sisters. Thinking about this further, the name ‘Noon’ has a distinctly oriental feel to it with the obvious pun that ‘High Noon’ must be a taller relative of Eastern origin.
That brings me to the refined English sound of little known musical artiste, i.e. rapper known as ‘Afternoon T.’ Hanging out where Afternoon T. practices his art is the sultry temptress known as ‘Dusk.’ There is also the delicious prospect of Afternoon T. performing a duet with Twilight Z (it works better in American)!
Outside of this of course there’s always ‘Sunshine’ and ‘Rain’ – but that’s just a cheap weather metaphor and very silly!
