Font Names

I love the website Da Font , where you can download typefaces for free. I've found a number of historical (medieval, early modern, 18th century) fonts there.

But mostly I love it because of the descriptive font names.

Names like "Fucked Olympia," "Dolenzo," "Boomerang Monkey," "Apostate Cancer," "Gastro Intestinal Confluent," "Rutaban," and "Chancelaresca."

At some point, I will have to use these names in a novel.

Are you writing a novel at the moment?

No, not writing a novel. Writing a book, though. Which maybe 6 people will read.
