Bright as Ostrich

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.
