Faolan is rooted in ancient mythos of the Irish werewolves known as the faoladh. Far from monstrous, these shapeshifters were seen as guardians, often called upon by kings during times of war. Yet much like the common wolf, these mythological beings were complex, exhibiting as much fierceness as loyalty. A name of many layers, Faolan is a potent reminder that strength of character comes in various forms, but true power comes in knowing which to feed.
Keshia is a contributing writer at The Bump, helping to bring baby names to life. A lover of stories (and a composer of many), she adores uncovering the backstory behind each name. It's a curiosity that bodes well for her inner researcher, allowing her to don her academic hat and delve in deep. Nothing thrills her more than finding obscure connections—and she will find them. Besides, with an unusual name of her own, Keshia knows firsthand how enriching it can be to discover your title holds deeper meaning after all.
A late arrival to the academic path, Keshia gained much of her writing experience outside the lecture hall. Composing short stories and poetry since early childhood, a career as a professional writer seemed inevitable. Yet film would always try to compete. Keshia found a happy medium with a BA in Film Studies, English, and Philosophy, from which she graduated with first-class honors in 2020. She continues to indulge her visual eye with photography and plenty of cinema visits.
Prior to her role at The Bump, Keshia worked as a professional photographer and copywriter. Her work has been featured in several online publications and landed her regular collaborations with well-known local businesses. Keshia continues to work as a freelance content writer, composing everything from B2B content to website copy. Editorials remain her favorite—the more research-heavy and impactful, the better.
