It comes from the dark mists of time :)

Seriously though, about 15 years ago, I acquired a nickname from a friend, Kate, who observed that by merely being in a room I could cause chaos. I have no idea why, perhaps it's an in-built talent ;) Anyway, she had commented after a particularly silly set of events, that 'pandemonium broke out where ever I went'. I was casting around for a name for my clothing company, and we decided to use that, but being pretentious and goffffycke (see the spelling? see what I did there? ;D ) we looked up the etymology - actually we looked it up to check the spelling! - and discovered the older spelling 'Pandaemonaeum', which is a 15th Century treatise on demonology. I couldn't resist the name, and swiped it.

However, we discussed this drunkenly in the Little A in Whitby, next to some people I know from the town ;) and one of them, having just bought a gothic clothing shop, remembered hearing the name, thinking it was cool, and used it. Poor Lara, she was so horrified to know it was what I had intended to call my clothing company! :o

So there, 15th Century treatise on demons.

Pretentious? Moi? NEVER! :D
