PostSubject: Random- James A. Owen's second name?   Sat Aug 23, 2014 10:52 am

So I noticed that the 'A.' in his name might actually stand for something. Unluckily, I didn't find any official statement on that.
Any ideas which name is behind it?
My idea:

Yes, I have noticed that too. I suppose Artimus is his middle name, but there is no official statement. Anyways, I really love that little detail! Plus, it adds a little time travell. I love all these suggestions of futute caretakers, such as Peter S. Beagle or J. K. Rowling - and James A. Owen, of course.

James Artimus Owen sounds actually quite nice.

Btw, thank you for the first real post AND the first real thread in this forum. Very Happy

Yeah, you're probably right. My other theory would be that he actually has another name, but merely made this one up for himself/ his readers, like Jack had...

Kind of a nickname or a pseudonyme? That's definitely possible... But I thought the whole point was using his middle name instead of his first name, so it was still himself, but not in a "look! it's the author himself!" way.

I think it's a pretty witty self-insert Very Happy

So, apparently, Artimus is his middle name. At least his new facebook friend page says so. Nice name.
