...And a bunch more I can't seem to put my finger on


Okay, that's good for now.  It took me over two hours to put this together.  I know I've forgotten some here and there, but I'll pop them back in when I remember.  It's just my way.

Take care of Yous.

P.S.  To find most of these songs (plus some others, and in a totally random order) try this list, though I hear people not Stateside have issues??

I do not think this Journal showed up in my message center. :\

I got your email, and I promise I'll reply to both this and that tomorrow when my eyes aren't being weighed down by a severe need to sleep. A lot's been going on and I think my thoughts will probably unwind into just funny little incoherent patterns of words if I try to write them all down right now. But I promise I'll reply soon :hug:

Ah, I might know some languages... but those two aren't in my repertoire. Sorry about that. I could try to find out in Spanish, if that would help.

It's nice of you to offer, but I don't think it would. I'm trying to work out Ian's last name and since his ancestry is largely Mediterranean, well you see where the Greek or Latin come in.

You said 'lost soul', didn't you?
That would be
:bulletblue: Spanish: alma perdida
:bulletblue: French: âme perdu
:bulletblue: Italian: alma smarrita (alma being feminine, smarrita is the feminine version. Masculine smarrito. It means: lost, stray,...)
They are all mediterranean languages, even though they are neither Greek nor Latin (but all have a latin origine)

These are all wonderful suggestions and I'm very grateful for them. In the Italian (which I'm most interested in) how important is the 'alma' part? As in, how would just Smarrito work as a surname? Would it seem completely confusing without the 'alma' preceding it?

I'm trying to stay away from Spanish and French because, well to be honest, Ian, being a bit of a womanizer, being French? That'd be just a bit cliche. And secondly, with Spanish becoming so common (especially here in the States) I much prefer the slightly more 'mysterious' quality of Italian.

Ah yeah, mysterious.
Well, I'd say an adjective on it's own works quite often. And it sounds far better than with the 'alma'. Alma means soul and I guess just 'lost' would work as well. I mean... I guess it's quite describing of lots of people, so why not Ian? And as it is a language that I think isn't that common (at least, it's not a world language... due to the lack of italian colonies back in the time) people won't really realise unless they know italian. And I think that word sounds nice!

Yes, I see now... And I think it would be nice, but then again, I have absolutely no idea about those two languages. Greek after all even uses different writing!

I know! *wide eyes* I tried online tranlators and of course I couldn't read the resulting text at all. I think myabe my dad-in-law might be able to help. As a pastor he's constantly looking up the various Latin root words that make up Biblical texts. I love that man.

I've also considered the concept of 'half' if I can't find the right 'lost' term, because of course Ian's soul is 'lost' because he doesn't have his other 'half' to share it with.

Narkya Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Ah yeah, maybe you should ask him as well. He'd probably have a better grasp of it due to him being a pastor as well.

Actually, I like the concept of 'lost' better than the one of 'half'. Maybe you should consider Ian as a 'whole' instead: he has all of his soul for himself and nobody has another part of it (yet?). Just that he doesn't realise...
