Wednesday Word of the Day

Nyctophobia \nik-tuh-FOH-bee-uh\, noun:
An abnormal fear of night or darkness.

~What's to fear...there are vamps, shifters and all manner of paranormal lovelies out to protect us at night...I'd say it's the daytime we need to worry about! *Wink*  Yes, my imagination is a lovely place to come and play.~

Nyctophobia stems from the Greek nyktos- meaning night and phobia meaning fear.


  1. I didn't know that. I wonder if the word 'nicotine' is related? Nyktos would be a great name for paranormal being of the night.

  2. Interesting...I, too, wonder if nicotine is related, Savanna. I'll have to check it out. :)

    Oh yeah, Nyktos would make an excellent name for a night stalking paranormal character!
