Mortal Instruments Vraag

vraag about "Clary Fray."

The main character it the Mortal Instruments is named Clary Fray, I know that. But I remember reading another book door a completley different auteur called The Supernaturalist. In the book, an orphanidge was called the Clarissa Fray institute.

Does "Clarissa Fray" of "Clary Fray" mean anything? of is it just a strange coincidence? It's something i've always wondered.

-And please excuse my horrible spelling :'(

I would like to point out Clarissa is also Clary's name in TMI! It's her real name...anyways:


According to Cassandra and how she named the characters:

[...]The names in my boeken come from all over the place. Sometimes they can take a long time to develop. Clary Fray is named after two vrienden of mine. Her name was originally Valerie Frayre (after the artist who does some of the character art on the artwork page), then Valerie Frayne, then (when a friend of mine was also writing a book with a heroine named Valerie) Clary Frayne, then Clary Fray (my editor's choice) -- then when I realized Clary was a nickname, she became Clarice, and finally, Clarissa. (She's not named after me. Her first name does sound similar to "Clare", but I should point out that Cassandra Clare is just a pen name, so I think it meer reflects that I must like that particular name-sound.)[...]

Hope this helps!
