The twilight language explores hidden meanings and synchromystic connections via onomatology (study of names) and toponymy (study of place names). This blog further investigates "name games" and "number coincidences" found in news and history. Examinations are also found in my book The Copycat Effect (NY: Simon and Schuster, 2004).

Roswell Shooter Identified: He's A Mason
News about the name of the suspected shooter in the Roswell school shooting event has been announced.
The 12-year-old boy is named Mason Campbell.
One of his victims is Kendall (or Kendal) Sanders, 13.
Mason = a stone worker ~ alternatively, a member of the Freemasons.
Campbell = primarily a Scottish family name of Gaelic origins, although a small number of branches have origins from anglicisation of various Irish family names. In Scotland, the name itself derives from two Scottish Gaelic words. "Cam" and "Béal" meaning "Crooked mouth" or "wry-mouthed," originally a nickname which over time became used as a surname.
Kendall = "Valley of the River Kent."
Sanders = a patronymic surname derived from the given name "Sander," a medieval form of "Alexander." Alexander comes from the Greek name "Alexandros," meaning "defender of men" from the Greek alexein "to defend, help" and aner"man."
