<img:stuff/NameMeanings>


I thought it would be interesting to find out what all the names of my pirates mean and where they originated from. Some of them don't quite fit their personality, but that's okay. ;3 This is just a little fun thing. Some names I might not be able to find the meanings for though, since I just kind of... made them up. o_o
