Anonymous asked : After the latest Guardians of Childhood book we learned that Pitch's daughter was named Emily Jane. But where did the name Seraphina come from? I swore it was in the books but I don't even know anymore.
hello hello anon dear, as I understand it, the fanon name came from her wiki page where a user stated that William Joyce had said her name was ‘Seraphina’ in an interview—however—lack of credible evidence to this interview was never sourced nor found and as such the name was dismissed as fanon or ‘fan canon’. whether her name truly was Seraphina to begin with but was later changed due to the leak or had never been Seraphina at all has not yet been cleared or explained. although I personally am content to say that I believe the latter.
as for how it became big in the fandom itself, I do believe it was from word of mouth and misinformation. a lot of users thought her canon name was Seraphina and many users liked the idea of it and still use it today despite her canon name of Emily Jane, which is fine as the fandom is often polite. what users decide to use as her name is up them and more a personal choice rather than whether or not it’s canon or fanon. so both names appear to be acceptable unless a specific RPer states otherwise (and it would be polite to respect an RPer’s choice. no matter the name they choose.)
that is the story as I understand it. I could be wrong so don’t take my word for it. I personally prefer Emily Jane but to each their own :D
