What’s In A Name?
Mrs. Publicist: Whoa! We almost forgot What’s In A Name, our monthly feature where Spence discusses a name in the Chet and Bernie series. What’s it going to be?
SQ: How about we pull a little switcheroo and dip into the Bowser and Birdie middle-grade series?
Mrs. P: The one that adults can read only if they have fake ID?
SQ: Exactly. Let’s do Bowser himself, the canine narrator.
Mrs. P: But not a talking dog.
SQ: Never! The name Bowser might come for old French beau sire – fine sir – which is appropriate in the end, but what I like is the sheer energy of the name, suggestive of bounding. Also the Bow part – a name with the beginnings of a bark right in it! Bowser’s name was the first thing that came to me in the whole series.
Mrs. P: Thanks, Spence! See you next month for another edition of What’s In A Name!
