Wednesday Word of the Day

Ferly \FER-lee\, noun:
1. Something unusual, strange, or causing wonder or terror.
2. Astonishment; wonder.
1. Unexpected; strange; unusual.

~I love to be ferlied!  LOL~

Ferly is derived from Old English fǣrlīc meaning fǣr (fear) and -līc (-ly). It was related to the German gefährlich meaning dangerous.


  1. Now that's a word I've never heard of... burly, burly, but he wasn't ferly...?

    Ferly, the mysterious werewolf, strolled into the sunbaked dusty town, one hand resting on the butt of his gun. No one knew just how dangerous he could be, given he wasn't certain where his ferocious nature ended...

  2. That was supposed to be: hurly burly, but he wasn't ferly... yeah, just trying to get the brain in gear now...

  3. Nice use of the word Ferly, Savanna! It works well as a name...especially for a furry hero. :)
