The young woman was on a mission. She longed for power and to lead! She wanted to form a world in which people depended on her for stability, for justice, and for power of their own. She pictured a world that had no war because it was all under her rule. Everyone was either too afraid to stand up to her or were in her inner circle and keeping the world in check…but she needed to leave the past behind her and start again. Where to start first?
She sat and pondered. Her name was just too plain. She needed a name that would be remembered, one with more power and meaning behind it. She was at a turning point and her old name needed to be forgotten. First she needed to find a new name that would give her might!
She started to think about names that would benefit her. The first name that came to her was Accalia. That would be a great name to use, the foster mother of Romulus and Remus, the founders of the Roman Empire. There was a powerful picture. A wolf, that nurtures and provides for her people. But the name needed more. She did not want to be remembered just as a nurturer. She thought about her ancestors, her Irish heritage screamed out to be remembered. Then it came to her, Caelan meaning victorious people. Accalia Caelan, wolf who was a nurturer, provider, and victorious but also represented her people. Now she just needed to persuade people to follow her.
