Whew! Okay, I’m done referring to myself in third person, so FYI:
My first name is pronounced: MIN-yin, as in dominion. It’s German. It means “favorite.” Kindly don’t tell me what it means in French; I’m a classically-trained scholar with two Master’s degrees. I know how to google–and this ain’t Paris! (No fooling. People have sent me “helpful” e-mails.)
My middle name is “Ariel” –after an arguably androgynous sprite from Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
