ooo why didn't I see this thread earlier! My name comes from Hildegard von Bingen who was a medieval nun/composer/mystic/write/scientist/alchemist... and, although being the Mother Abbess, she was obviously Catholic, I think she had a little bit of the Goddess in her, too! I thought "von Knittin" was a fun play on "von Bingen".
It's gotten to the point, though, where people think my name REALLY is hildegard... or Hildie.
Who is this Carolyn person?????
