a rose by any other name..

Ok, so Michelle has decided that she's tired of being Michelle. She wants to change her name to something a bit more.. uh.. you know.. unique. So I'm opening up the re-naming process to the lucky porkers. Any ideas?

on a side note, this morning i asked Michelle when Cinco de Mayo is.. and she said... without missing a beat, "May 5th!"

yah, i know... what day?

yes please... any suggestions are welcome... we're looking for something a bit androgynous and playful. I promise you, I'm not being vain.. it's simply such a hassle having such a common name.

Acqua/Aqua

You're a pisces, so water-related things are good for you. Plus, it's a medium that you use for your art.
Water takes so many forms, and it's the basis for life; that's where we came from. (My mother said I was from heaven, but I sometimes wonder).

It begins with the letter [A], so you'll be at the top of the list in a roll of names, such as a brochure. Of course, if they bring back the draft......I dunno.

Your work flows like water; it has undulating (the word for today, undulating) shapes, and wherever water goes, it leaves a mark/path.

So there.

Banjo suggested Budweiser, but I think that I'll veto that one.
Jake suggested Camellia, but that's too tragic.

How about Clicker? - Like the sound of your high heels on the pavement? Banjo suggested Clomp-Clomp-Clomp-Tumble-Tumble, but I told her that you weren't interested in a compound name - she's sulking.
Of course, when you hit fifty and starting wearing orthotics and support hose, the name Clicker may not sound as perky, but you can cross that bridge when you get there.

Hey Sara, how do you feel about changing your name to kazoo?
I dunno; it gives the whole family a musical theme!
Hey! Maybe you can get your landlord to name the building something catchy. Since you live on a street with a [B], it can be called the ♭Flats!

Watcha think!?

Michelle White is a hard name to Google. What if you started calling yourself White Michelle? Androgynous and unusual. Kind of techno, cica 1997. It's a name I could see on a rave flyer.
So do you think PG ladies in 1969 and 1970 thought about how many Michelles, Stephanies and Jennifers there would be? It's such a 70s name. I'll have to ask my mom about that.

CHANGE your NAME?? Oh, c'mon...I had 3 Jennifers in my wedding, NOT including me and you don't see me lookin' around. Make yourSELF unique and then, what the hell's in a name??

Or you could be really unique and just change it to Meesh Ehl.

What ever happened to Finn Sloat?

But seriously, I just heard this Irish name that I love: Saoirse. It's pronounced "sear + sha" and means "freedom, liberty." Cool, eh?

So, Michelle ( we can still call you that, right?); tell us, what are some of your favorite things. Maybe that can jolt us into coming up with an appropriate name.
Don't start singing: ♭♫ ♪Raindrops on roses - and whiskers on kittens......♬♩♬ - not unless you want to sing-a-long with you.

My class had 3 Stephanies, and it was a small school. The worst was a Stephanie whose last name was Kytle. Her life had a bit more, shall we say excitement than mine, and when stories about her were exchanged, some would confuse her w/ yours truly, the former Stephanie Cahill.

Absolutely nothing with Sloat; that surname has a negative history in California. It may resonate with some people, but others will Grrrrr! at you.

Lane: Don't you think that people will start humming Penny Lane?

How about Frankie? But not Frankie Lane - he was a singer in the 50s & 60s who sang the theme song to Rawhide - the TV western.

I dunno: When I hear flip, I think of Flip Wilson, and that brings up Geraldine. That means that Sara would have to change her name to Killer!

What do you think of Flip Phlopp?

I'm picking up an Irish-y vibe from the names that you're suggesting (?)

How about Stern O'Fluid?

OK - I was saving this one up for myself, but you can have it: Evo Lew Schin

As true Southerners, my family played it loose with subject/verb/object. Dad would say "Meeyanyeemuthur done ... (fill in the blank, whatever). Having acquired a masters, a doctorate, and the good sense to move away, I realized he was just speaking a Tennessee dialect close to Old English (new information gets to Tennessee slowly). So! I always sign anything to my sister
"Yeebruthur, son of Meeyanyeemuthur" to stay true to our ancient heritage. If you need a bit of Southern charm, you might consider "MeeyanSayrah. daughter of Sayseelwhyyut" Ask MeeyanMeezhel her opinion.

I cannot believe there have been 32 comments and NO ONE has suggested "Snow."

Brian, that's great!!

Snow Shovel
Snow Storm
Snow Shoe
Snow Watt
Snow Fall
Snow Drift
Snow Pack
Snow Squall
Snow Flake
Snow Bank
Snow Tire
Snow Chains
Snow Board

It goes without saying that Snow White will be a big hit in her neighborhood.

Sara can change her name to Slush.

Then of course there was Sneezy, Sleazy, Cheesy, Wheezy, Mopey, Dopey Grumpy, Bashful and Doc.
