Nora Leah asks:
[Would you rather] be named Perseverence Thistle or Crystal Peppermint?
Gotta go with Crystal Peppermint. Perseverance isn’t entirely a positive word — it sounds like you fail a lot or have a lot of hardship. “Persevere” is one of those words that means something semi-positive with negative undertones, like “tolerate” or “endure”.
