I like my nick too. I will be honest with you and tell you, I found it by accident. I needed a name for my Northernway sign-in and I wanted it to be special to me. I was playing on the computer with my 10 year old daughter and we went to this Elf Names website. We were cracking up at the silly names. I found the name Alatariel and I loved it. It felt like my spirit inside. The me that people can't see. I also must add, that I pronounce it Ala' Tariel.
Also, a couple of years ago, when I first started meditating for peace of mind (my husband and I have 6 kids and at the time four dachshunds and two cats). Peace of mind was badlyneeded. I went into a very deep meditation and I saw myself as a woman in the forest. Forest animals were nearby and there was a stone well there. I was standing by the well and there were these forest animals right there with me. There were these huge old oak trees all around. It was so real, I could smell the forest and feel the cool damp air. It was like I could feel the forest's cool, soft moss on my feet. The impression was so strong and deep. I can't explain it other than when I saw the name Alatariel it was like a karmic match. Then, when you asked me to look up the name, I started search and one of the things I found out about the name had something to do with a woman and Oak trees.
