Partly yes, partly no. I am a lightly built person....hence, "Little". As for the "Hawk" part...I have terrible eyesight, so it doesn't work for that...but I have good connections with birds of prey in a spiritual sense, and have taken a falconry course at one time...so it does work there. I've always liked hawks.

When flattop refers to me as "Little Shit Hawk", he is using a common local expression for seagulls, "shit hawks". Very disrespectful!

Mine means "scarecrow", probably in a field of "Tatties" (Potatoes). A Bogle is also a ghost. But the name was one of those terms of endearment used by my Scottish mother when either my sister or I came in looking particularly dishevelled after playing outside! It was later adopted by my husband to call myself or either of our 2 kids "Bogues". So now you know! Taatie Bogle

I am mostly of celtic blood, however, if you combine the mixture handed down from my Mother and my Father, it's more than 3/4.

Or, you could just attribute it to the ease in which my "Irish" can be got. ;D

Since then it has been pointed out that it is quite a good description since a lot of the parties /sessions I go to can get quite misty/hazy and sometimes its difficult to see across the room Bhong said Zebedee-I rest my case said FOG-please put money into it.

My name comes from a character in a book, whom I admire even if I don't resemble him as closely as I'd like to:

Gonff the mousethief padded silently along the passage from the larder and storeroom of Kotir. He was a plump little creature, clad in a green jerkin with a broad buckled belt. He was a ducker and a weaver of life, a marvelous mimic, ballad writer, singer, and lockpick, and very jovial with it all. The woodlanders were immensely fond of the little thief. Gonff shrugged it all off, calling every creature his matey in imitation of the otters, whom he greatly admired. Chuckling quietly to himself, he drew the small dagger from his belt and cut off a wedge from the cheese he was carrying. Slung around his shoulder was a large flask of elderberry wine which he had also stolen from the larder. Gonff ate and drank, singing quietly to himself in a deep bass voice between mouthfuls of cheese and wine.
