Origin of Her Name
Honoria (pronounced ah-NOR-ee-uh) has been a favorite first name of her avatar's creator but the name serves a higher claim to fame as the name of Major Charles Emerson Winchester III's sister from the television series, M*A*S*H.
Paine was chosen as an homage to Thomas Paine, pamphleteer, patriot, dreamer (1737–1809). He is best known as the author of the pamphlet, "Common Sense" which played a key role in rallying support during the American Revolution.
