Willowmere

What does the name "Willowmere" sound like to you? does it sound like a person's name, place name, animal, what? be specific, please. If it's a place, what of place? If a person, describe that person, no matter if it's general.

Thanks.

It sounds like the name of a village in a fairytale.

Or some charming hamlet in England where they still have thatched roofs.

Sounds like a snooty gated community to me.

My first reaction was the same as DreamOutLoud's--sounds like some snooty gated community. Although snooty gated community names are often meant to invoke things like some whimsical little English village somewhere.

Literally it means Willow Lake.

I had a cold, snow covered place. Like a village with small but nice huts with snow covered tops and snow covered dirt paths as roads, maybe with street lanterns; certainly enchanting.

it sounds like an enchanted forest with magical elves, witches, animals, and fairies and willow trees. many little elves roam the forest looking for magical sparkling crackers to eat. a few cottages sit near the forest where witches brew spiritual potions for elf children passing by to take a taste of. every elf rides a unicorn to get to the central market where the delicious pearberries grow and farmers sell them for unicorn hairs. the unicorn hairs work as medicine for the sick.

you can tell i'm bored

It sounds like the name of a horse to me. That's the first thing that comes to mind.

Otherwise, it sounds like the name of a forest, or the name of some wizard or character that's not quite human, Alison Baird books, etc.

Yep...but maybe that's just because I work for a local planning department, so I'm used to hearing all kinds of names like that.
