Jan082017: Alcott Grimsley and Louisa May Alcott

“May I ask, where did you get the name Alcott from? Is it by any chance inspired by Louisa May Alcott?”

From a directory of English names lol. I picked the name rather than it coming naturally to me – I was purposely looking for something that sounded English but not too common or too pompous. It’s just coincidence that he shares a name with the novelist (I haven’t read Little Women yet).

Grims’ full name is Alcott Benedict Grimsley. Taken together, the name means ‘an old cottage (blessed) in the haunted woods’. I only just found this out last year hahaaaa
