I really like the word "enhabiten" (I did medieval studies once upon a time). It suits your aesthetic perfectly. Where did you first encounter it?

hello anabela! i was trying to come up with an unusual name for my business and was looking in the dictionary. i had made a list of all the words which suited my aesthetic including inhabit and habitat and the like. i also love word etymology and words in general so when i look words up i like to see the derivation. i find them to be poetic often times and evocative. i also happen to like history and i am fascinated by the middle ages. when i saw this form of the word i knew it was right for me immediately.
as a side note, i love to name things including children. so once in awhile i think i'd like to rename my business but i know that would not be practical and i still feel very comfortable with enhabiten. thanks for asking me!

Good question and great answer! I'm a word nerd that also loves naming and renaming. My kids tease me about it and often say accuse me of making them up. I tell them, "I like words. I like ones that mean something." That always elicits eye rolls. Enhabiten is just so, you. So you may be stuck with that one.:)
