What’s in a Name

This is  2 Star writing assignment was to explain my 1940’s characters name.  This was easy to do, her name just came to me.  Here is my explanation.


What’s in a name?

I chose the name, Isabelle “Red” McIntosh for odd reasons.  My 1940’s character is a librarian who moonlights as a detective/writer. I love the name Isabelle, but then I decided that if she was going to be a detective she needed a cool nick name.  Red came to mind because that was a moniker I always liked.  The reason I used McIntosh is because it is my favorite apple.  All this made it really easy to come up with a logo for her detective agency, Red’s Investigations.  I think the name fits the character very well and I think it fits her.   I have included her logo to show how well it works.Reds Investigations
