Any additional comments?
This is the book Unsong's Aaron Smith-Teller would write if he was a Joss Whedon fan. "This name is not a coincidence because nothing is a coincidence". Valerie digs into the meaning and the layers behind names, brings historical, mythological and etymological reference -- as well as comparing and contrasting to other names in Joss's work. They can't all be true, because the choice of name would be overconstrained. But it makes you think: which one of those were the real reasons? How did Joss actually decide on the name? And which of those aspects is merely a coincidence?
