"Name of the Game" Month - Lumina

Prompt: Use the name of a car as a part of the name of a character.



She was translucent, light coming through her skin as though she were a lit lantern. Her pale skin glowed. Sephra looked down at her child. She was forbidden to utter the infant’s name before her naming ceremony, but she mouthed it as she stroked her daughter’s hair. “Lumina,”

The tiny girl stirred in her sleep, a smile on her illuminated features.

Notes: The Chevrolet Lumina is a strange little car. It's name is close to the Latin word for light, but in reality the word means nothing. I just happen to like it. According to, the Lumina is on the list of top ten weirdest made up car names.
