View Full Version : A New Name For My Photoblog
12-12-2005, 10:16 PM
I've been running my site for a while now and I'm bored with the current name (McKendall.Net Gallery). Probably my current name is just plain boring. After all, it's not really a gallery. I don't know, I'm really just looking for a change. So, I'm having a hard time trying to come up with a new name and was wondering if the folks here would throw some ideas my way. Any takers?
Thanks in advance,

you could go the McDonalds route... "McPhotoBlog" or "McBlog" ;)
I'm sick and on a deadline at the moment so the creative thoughts ain't flowin' like they should (heck.. I can't even type in proper english anymore...).

Make it something that is you. Not something that could be anyone else. Not that there is anything wrong of course with McPhotoBlog mikelangelo!
I took a word that is (possibly, no doubt I'm about to be proved wrong)unique to our family. One night while cooking dinner my wife extended the word spuds (or potato's) to the word spudooli's. They have been called spudooli's for the past 15 years. When it came to finding a domain name it was an obvious choice as it still was available.
It'd be easier if you have kids too, they are always inventing words. and not only when they are young too!

A blogging tradition tends to be that you just pick a word or sentence that's particularly meaningful to you.
Do you have a favourite quote? A nickname? Is there a book or movie that means a lot to you?
Some people go with their full names too. A common password generation principal was also used in the dot com boom to name businesses. Take a couple of short words which don't really relate to each other, and string them together, like, "Jungle Blue" (i made that up, but it might be a real name).
Or you could think up some imaginative photography reference, like "Second-hand Light".
It's your call :)

Of course not! ;)
You got lucky with "Spudooli"... I think that's a great name.

you just described what Joe[y] is performing with his Zombie goat porn:

haha, Ramin, now we have the proof that senseless nonsense has an economic base, theoretical structure ;=)

i'll have you know connie that zombie goat porn is modern art form and not a laughing matter.

sorry Sir !!!

Thanks for your ideas all. I do like Tinyblob's suggestion, but I'll have to see how creative I can be.

Of course mckendall, you could take Joe's lead and generate yourself a porn star name. Isn't it something like combining one of your pets first name (do pets have more than one name?) with your mothers maiden name?
Voila! Photoblog name!
