Name

Pronunciation (IPA): [ˈrɑu̯li ˈhæy̯ryne̞n]

Rauli comes from the Old Norse name Ráðúlfr [ˈrɑːðˌuːl.fr] ‘counsel wolf’. Häyrynen comes from the Finnish word häyry ‘carbon monoxide, fume’. It was probably a surname for a slightly crazy person.

My usual nick around the web, radulfr, is simplified from the Old Norse name. On Instagram that name was already taken; the Sanskrit word वनेचरः vanecaraḥ [ʋɐneːt͜ɕɐɽɐh] means ‘wandering or dwelling in a forest, ascetic, sage’. I love forests and I have liked that word ever since I saw it in a dictionary.

Social media

If you follow me, I may or may not follow you back. If I don't follow, it's not because of you, but because I'm already overwhelmed by the number of posts I read daily. I love the autistic community on social media and I appreciate every follower, even if I can't do it back.
