I need a name

I made a separate blog for my oneword entries, but I can't "un hide" it or finish it up until it has a name. (Ok, I could, but I don't wanna!)

I've spent 3 days obsessing about it and now I have a headache.

Your turn. - Don't all jump at once.

- FYI, to help: I'd like a shortish name (1-3 words) It's a blog of entries that are inspired by a word of the day ( * See the "One Word" tab above). I write the entries in about 60 seconds. I may someday include other writing exercises there - Short daily type ones. The template style/look is "parchment"-y.

Go! ;)

(Oh and there's no prize. I get the prize which may be my headache going away.
-And you probably get another notch on your Karma belt which could make the difference between whether or not you come back as an amoeba.)

Oh man, I suuuuuuck at titles. But I'll let your request marinate and let you know if I come up with anything clever-ish.

Hm- how about "A Quick Word"? Oh god, that's good! Or. . . An Inspired Word? Not as good? A Word to the Side. . . sort of a spin on A word to the wise. . . no, no one would know what that means. I'll come back if I have any more inspiration.

A Quick Word?
Can I have a word with you?
One word says it all.
Sorry if I already suggested these. . . .can't remember
"There's a word for that you know. . . "

You're probably regretting asking for ideas now.. . I can do this forever. . at some point you better make a decision. A friend who was in a band that couldn't decide on a name regretted asking for ideas from me. They just kept coming and coming. . .my fav was The NoName Band. . .

I just woke up. I still have a headache, but you two made me laugh and smile - and I'm not even out of bed yet! Thank you :)

Keep 'em coming!

I was just going to comment that I keep coming up with some GREAT names, but they're all taken! (not that I can't have a name someone else has, but it'd be nice to have one of my own) and I found I couldn't comment on my own post!

There seems to be a problem with the embedded comment form on this blog, but if I switch to a pop up window it seems to work ok.

I think... let's see what happens when I click "submit!"

Noisy Quiet said...

Ok, I seem to have fixed the issue for the moment by uploading a backup version of this template. Which I believe is IDENTICAL to the one I just replaced, but if anything seems weird or different let me know (there shouldn't be anything different.)

- That is, if blogger will let you comment ;)

Well, see, now I'm trying to be all helpful by commenting just to make sure that I can comment, but I still don't have any good ideas for names. I liked Josie's "A Quick Word," the best though, if that helps.

(Okay, fine, I thought it would be a little cute/funny if you just called it "Word.")

I know what you mean, though, about wanting a name that's all your own and no one else's. Someday I'll have to tell you about how my second son was supposed to be named Jayden, and then by the time I got pregnant with him the name Jayden was EVERYWHERE. So then I pored over names for ages and wound up naming him Nicholas instead, which, what? Sometimes I don't make sense. ;)

Before you write off the names that you thought of but that someone else has, though, keep in mind how quickly blogs come and go. If you come up with something that really feels right to you, don't be too quick to reject it. Just make it your own.

Noisy Quiet said...

Hee hee. Thank you for the comment test :D

Nicholas. Good name :) But yeah... what? lol

I thought of "Word" too! Lol! I think that's hysterical! I thought it might be too subtle and no one would get that lol! Maybe I should revisit that idea...

I kind of like A Quick Word too (Thanks Josie!) but I'm still pondering.

I may have found a title I like but I need to sit with it for a bit and see if I still think it's right. The good news is it's not taken. Well, it is... until you add dashes! ;) (other names were taken with dashes, without dashes, with or without abbreviations... grrrrr!)

Re making an already existing (and likely abandoned) name my own... part of it is the URL. I mean I'm not going to get a domain name (It's not THAT big a deal to me) but I'd like my blogger address to somewhat match the title if possible so it's easier for people to find. You know... all four people who might read there ;) Annoyingly, all the "taken" names were in fact taken by people who only posted once or twice and then never again! Nevertheless, the urls can't be used. I almost wrote a post/rant about that. I understand - and respect- blogger leaving blogs up in perpetuity, regardless of when the last post was made. But if there never WERE any posts beyond a couple of test posts and those posts were made over FOUR YEARS AGO, can we delete the blogs and free up those names please?

Thanks again! :) :)

Noisy Quiet said...

Been playing around with names. Aquickword and a-quick-word are taken. So is "word" ;)

I had a name I liked but I'm finding that I have trouble remembering it, so that's not good Lol! If *I* can't remember it easily what are the odds other people will!

Still pondering. Thank you again for the suggestions. (Got any more?)

Kelly said...

No more suggestions from me, I just wanted to share your frustration when you come up with an AWESOME name and then find that someone else grabbed it and hasn't used it in years but didn't release it back into the blogging wilds, either. Makes me crazy, too.

Noisy Quiet said...

Yeah. Grrrrrr!

Josie said...

Just Say the Word
To Sum Up In One Word
In One Word
Writing The Word
Word Inspiration
Wordy Wise
Where's There's Word There's a Way

OK, will stop now, just getting silly. Hurry up and choose one. .

Noisy Quiet said...

Thank you! :)

I actually did come up with a name but I'm out of town so I figured I'd sit with it for a few days and see if I still like it ok when I get back. I should be back tomorrow or the next day.

Thank you again!

PS: Good to see you! I was afraid you might have been one of the ones hit by the blogger glitches.
