Ask Huffle

Madi asked me: How did you get the name Huffle Mawson? We are sure there must be a good story to go with your name.

HuffleExplorer

I have explained my name before but I will happily do it again for newer readers. When I first got here, five and a half years ago, mum and dad called me Stella. But after a few days, they noticed that I would huff at things as I was wandering around. So they started calling me Hufflepuff (like in Harry Potter). Then, because I like to explore new places, they added Mawson after the famous Antarctic explorer Douglas Mawson. So my new full name was Huffle Mawson and I always answer to Huffle. I don't answer to Stella.

You are just not a Stella, Huffle. We always love hearing the story about your name, and it also reminds Mom of how many times she called you a boy:(

We love your name story... Can just hear your huff, huff, huff. And there's so much to huff about! That aside, there's a lovely rhythm to Huffle Mawson and it suits you well.
