Gloriana. Clever, no? Actually, no ... I naively tried for "Gloria" -- which is my "real life" name -- but that of course was already occupied. "Gloriana" occurred to me as first as what it is -- an alternate form of "Gloria" -- but then it occurred to me secondly that like "Americana", artefacts of American culture, "Gloriana" could, yes, be artefacts of my culture (were true culture not defined as of many and not of one). Now, again: Clever? A bit more than usual, maybe.

Benjamin Britten wrote a series of choral music for Queen Elizabeth's coronation called Dances from Gloriana. That's what I thought of when I saw your name :)

I'd say it's quite clever. :)
