What's in a name?

This reads 'Orlaith' according to a little seal stone stamp from Hong Kong. I guess it's in Cantonese, or maybe Mandarin...

My brother explained to Mister Stampmaker how my name was pronounced versus how it was spelled, so who knows what he finally decided on carving. It probably reads "Orla-with-a-t whoever heard of such crazy names golden-haired princess indeed..."

This is the result when the stamp is used with the accompanying dinky pot of semi-solid ink. I also tried it with my Mont Blanc ink but it was, ahem, not entirely successful.

Off to scrub my hands some more...

Curiouser and curiouser.
