The name 'calyxa' has been with me since my early UNIX
geeking days in the early 80s in
I had to choose a name no longer
than seven characters, so I picked up a dictionary and opened it
randomly to the word calyx:
ca·lyx (ka'liks, kal'iks) n., pl. -lyxes or
calyces (ka'le-sez', kal'e-). The usually green segmented outer
envelope of a flower. [L.]
With both an x and a y, I liked it immediately. With an
a on the end, it was like many stereotypical women's names. So
'calyxa' I became.
The last name 'Omphalos' was something I decided on a few years back when
I ran across the word. The omphalos was a part of the Temple of Delphi,
home of the famous oracle. Omphalos may mean egg-like stone, or
it also means navel of the world. I think it's because I'm an
that I like drawing the connection between myself, the world, and the
worlds I build in my imagination.
Outside of Cyberspace, my name is Ruth Fry.
I continue to use the name Calyxa for my on-line persona as well as
the nom de plume for the artwork I've done with Bryce. Currently
I've been building my worlds in Sunnyvale, California, where I share
a home with my husband
and our three
