Why Ailia Kate Kira?
The pen name Ailia Kate Kira began with the name Ailia. The protagonist had a fascination for palindromic names, so she wanted to call herself one, which became her alias. Kate was added in order to give normalcy to the name and it is part of the protagonist’s national culture to have more than one name. Finally, Kira is a Japanese onomatopoeia for sparkle and a word that the protagonist has appreciated since she saw Macross Frontier.
