My Sims sibsets: Sojourner May

Winter in Salzburg

Winter in Salzburg

I am currently playing Sims 3, but I started with the first version. The main reason I love playing this game, is the possibility to name generations of families. In my Sims world, the definition of a “normal” name is reversed. Therefore, you may encounter multiple Sims called Hugo and Ottilie , but there is only one Sarah (the name was an accident). Furthermore, I often choose names that have a connection to something I hear or read of. Many Sims “born” last summer , for example,  have names influenced by the Olympic Games in London.

The following sims were the children of the first person I created in Sims 3.

Mother:

Sojourner May

Children:

Austen Winter (b)

Willoughby Asa

Evangeline

Helena Wren

Margo Hermione

Rory Pilgrim

Ottilie Maeve

Pandora Alice

Harper Bronte (g)

Sojourner May was the first person I created in Sims 3. She was named after Sojourner Truth, the famous American women´s rights activist. Austen´s namesake was the English novelist Jane Austen. The other sims just received names I liked. You may wonder why Harper Bronte is the only girl with a unisex name. I felt that Harper Bronte would complement the sibset and hoped that a boy would be born. However, I only got girls and I didn´t want to waste the name, so the last girl received it.

The archbishops of Salzburg

The city Salzburg is since the 7 century a diocesan town. The bishops and later archbishops were the clerical and secular rulers of the area. They built the city and often redesigned it.
