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.
