I go by the name of Naila Moon for a couple of reasons.
To begin with it was (and still is) a spiritual name for me.
The name also lends itself to part of my heritage. I am part Cherokee and proud of that fact. As I was never had a Cherokee naming ceremony as a child (which is supposed to be done by ones Grandmother), my husband chose the name of the Grey Wolf for me. Such that I am of the Grey Wolf clan.
Therefore, my whole name is Naila Moon of the Grey Wolf.
As the name progressed, I began using it for my writings and photography...I suppose a pen name so to speak.
This is a name that honors me, my heritage, my spirit life as well as my regular life all wrapped in to one. I like it that way. :-)
