How did you name your blog?

Since there is not much going on in the blogosphere besides comment spam, I thought I would bring out an age old topic that always portends a lot of exciting discourse.

I have had the opportunity to name a few. The first was Mindful Musings. I did spend a lot of time thinking about that one. I wanted to express my frustrations, fears, anger, loathe, rant as well as my joy, pleasure and satisfaction in my blog. I wanted to be creative and artsy. I wanted people to remember the name long after they had left my blog. Since I did not have the money to buy a domain, I never did search to make sure it was available. I just made sure it sounded catchy to me.

For Weblogtoolscollection.com, I had wanted to start a blog about blogging tools and did some reasearch on the names available. At first glance the name seemed a little too long, but it grew on me and thats where it stands today.

How did you end up naming your blog? Were you in your pajamas, holding a beer and and shooting the cans in the backyard? Was your significant other nagging you to clean the bathroom when the name hit you? How much effect did the color of your socks have on the name of your blog? Was a cat involved? How much time did you spend in thinking up a good and catchy name for your site?

    I was in Washington DC in a senate hearing on ICANN, and it was terribly boring but I thought of a good pun. When I got back to my computer I registered the domain.

  3. Anne (3 comments.) says:

    Heh, my weblog doesn’t really have a name :-)

  4. Podz (11 comments.) says:

    A cat :)

    I wanted a name that did not directly connect to me, that wasn’t something that tried to be neat / cool / funky or anything wierd, but that meant something to me.
    Tamba is the name of my cat – she’s 18 now – and she’s the second cat with that name (We had a cat called Tamba when I was a kid), so it became Tamba2.

    I’m also interested in why people choose the domains they do. I know how they are meant to operate according to the ‘powers that be’, but given the diversity, is it a case of “I chose .net because it was the only one that was free” or for some other reason ?

  5. Carthik (25 comments.) says:

    For carthik.net, that was a natural choice, since I wanted a site with my first name on it.
    For wordlog.com, I first wanted pressingmatters.com (which was taken), then I tried a whole lot of semantics/syntax related names, and a lot of names involving “word” or “press”. I finally settled for the short, and hopefully meaning wordlog. The length of the name matters a lot to me – shorter is better.

  6. Rob Mientjes (2 comments.) says:

    I registered the domain zooibaai.nl in June 2003, and I started a blog this May. Behind the scenes it was always called the Zooiblog, but on the site itself I just called it the blog. Since the redesign (Bob), I’ve put the name on top. If you want to know what it means, find some Dutchman to try to give you a good explanation. I can’t.

  7. Ryan Waddell (2 comments.) says:

    Well, when I first started out, I was doing a lot of ranting. So the obvious (and catchy) name of “Ryan’s Rantin’” seemed like a good choice. Now, though, I don’t really do that much ranting… ahh well. :P

    Badly.

  9. Ethan (1 comments.) says:

    “sideshow” was my college nickname, and was inspired by my white boy ‘fro. As for the actual domain—well, someone’s been squatting on the non-zero version since 1997.

  10. Aubrey (1 comments.) says:

    My weblog name (which is the same as my domain name) comes from a song by Blur (you know, the guys who sang that ‘Woo-hoo!’ song; they have much better stuff than that!) of the same name. All my past weblog names (seventeen, galapagos, resigned, etc) have come from songs I like. That’s how I name things.

  11. Joseph Lindsay (2 comments.) says:

    I wanted something unique for mine (as do most people) so the title was “Different, just like everybody else” because I couldn’t think of anything original. That was too long so now it’s “Just like everybody else, which is still a mouthful. It’s also the name of a fantastic song by Shihad who are a great rock band from New Zealand too.

  12. Graham (2 comments.) says:

    Wanted something that would fit with my activism bent, as well as still apply to me throughout school and residency. And plus, I love bad puns.

  13. Jeremy Flint (1 comments.) says:

    My domain is just my name, jeremyflint.com. The name of by blog, however, is Red Hot and Daily. The Red Hot came from the sign I have in my header from an old truckstop in my hometown. I have tons of pictures of it and had always wanted to use it in some way. Just sort of happened I guess.

  14. Greg Ostravich (1 comments.) says:

    I named mine ‘Useful bits’ because it started out being bits of information that solved different technical problems I had run into. I also liked the pun. I’ve since added personal content based on the advice of a friend who said that technology becomes obsolete, but personal blog items will be fun to review in the future.

  15. Craig C. (2 comments.) says:

    I just made two lists of words and tried different combinations until I found two that sounded good together. It’s written up on my obligatory about page.

  16. Steve Ivy (1 comments.) says:

    Redmonk.net is from a concatenation of the nicknames my wife and I had for each other while “courting”. :-) My blog, monkinetic, is a derivation of my nickname and the adjective kinetic.

  17. Podz (11 comments.) says:

    I missed my blog name bit ….earlier this year I was in Bristol with friends, and some people were doing a vox-pop thing. One of them approached me and said “What makes you happy ?” and when I gave my answer (I didn’t swear) she was quite taken aback.
    The answer and reason remain valid, as does the ? – so that’s why :)

  18. Glen Piper (5 comments.) says:

    My blog name comes from a Nirvana song title – “Territorial Pissings”. First & foremost, I wanted a blog name that sounded cool & was unique. Secondarily, the idea of “marking” my turf in the blogosphere seemed kinda cool in a cheesy way. Thus was the pun-like “Territorial Bloggings” born.

    I always used qpalzm as my password for stuff, and the com was taken. I started with compubum.com, then whichsoever.com, and now i’m kind of trying to come up with a new one. I got almosteffortless.com, which is cool, but long.

  20. danithew (1 comments.) says:

    I picked an old nickname I had way back in the day.

  21. Michael Moncur (10 comments.) says:

    I pulled “figby.com” out of the air when I was coming up with an example of a phony domain name for a book I was writing. My co-author said “hey, you should register figby.com.” I did.

  22. Elliott Back (15 comments.) says:

    Heh. I named mine…after me. Of course, I could have been more creative with the domain, but I’ve finally displaced ‘Missy’ Elliott in the searches for “Elliott Back.” And that is sweet victory.

  23. Dougal Campbell (35 comments.) says:

    I didn’t really intend to stick with the name “geek ramblings” for my blog. It was supposed to be a temporary name until I thought of something better. There are too many other “geek” and “rambling” sites out there. For a while now, I’ve been meaning to do a name change. I’ve been considering “Dougalus Maximus”. It’s not all that creative, but I already have the “dougal.us” domain registered :)

  24. Joseph (1 comments.) says:

    My blog, “next http://,” is actually the name of the first web page I made waaaaay back in ’95 and which I’ve kept ever since. The name originally came from the MST3K theme song, which started “In the not too distant future / Next Sunday, A.D.” For some reason this snuck into my head at the critical naming phase, and next http:// was born.

  25. Levi Chronister (1 comments.) says:

    I chose my name from a misheard line in the Bad Religion song “The Defense.” The correct line is “I seek initiatives in matters that are black and white,” but I thought it was “I see conditions in matters that are black and white” (as in, I see conditions where others see only two options). Given my knack for seeing both sides of an issue, it was the perfect fit for a blog name.

  26. Mike Wills (1 comments.) says:

    The nickname Koldark came from an ICQ Nickname a long time ago (read about it on my about page), it just stuck for me. Then for a neat twist I changed the C to a K in computer.

  27. Jason Stare (1 comments.) says:

    Mine was formed using each letter of my first name (Jason) by a friend of mine in England. In hindsight, I wish I had chosen something a tad smaller…

  28. seriocomic (1 comments.) says:

    I like these threads.

    I spent most of a day going through a dictionary for a word that seemed to capsulate my personality, trying each variation to see if the domain version had been registered. I wanted a single word , and as you can imagine there aren’t many left that aren’t a .com.

    I found ‘seriocomic’ – meaning a mixing of serious and comic elements, which seemed to suit and it was available. And here we are.

  29. Meredith (24 comments.) says:

    Hey, how’d you guess? A cat WAS involved. My weblog name is just my domain name, which was named (in 1999, two years before I started blogging) after one of my cats.

  30. Alex Spinton (1 comments.) says:

    I always struggle with coming up with good names for web sites, so I named my blog after myself. Maybe if something really hits me down the road, I will change its name, but I don’t really have a problem with such an uncreative blog title.

  31. Mark Michon (1 comments.) says:

    Went through various names before choosing mine. For some reason I can not think of them at the time, but I do know everything witty and clever was taken. Most of which were not even being used (oh the rage that spawned from this…)

    Ended up with MakingMark, which has a bit of hidden meaning and a decent ring to it. Would have liked something shorter or more symmetrical but it works out alright.

    Because ultimately, it’s about nothing, but sometimes nothing can mean everything.

  33. David Barrett (1 comments.) says:

    I thought of naming it some random title, then named it “random title”. The irony gets me… I am unfortunately more of a sucker for ironic consumption than I’d like to be.

    Left Handed Communism
    When I was studying multimedia we had to form teams for the major projects. In my team, no one wanted to be assigned ‘power structure’ roles such as project manager. The teacher called us communists; I said it was justified. From that, the term Left Justified came to my head. The fact that I was a) missusing a typography term and b) left handed made it all the more appropriate as the name for my blog. Now I’ve registered it as the name of my web design company :D

  35. victor (1 comments.) says:

    a few factors: jessie from contrasts.net helped me create the first version of the site. contrast… vertical hold… video settings for television. then that my name is victor. it all sorta added up.

  36. Dominik (2 comments.) says:

    Actually I got my domainname “lostfocus.de “way before I even knew what a weblog is. It showed my confusion about what to do after finishing school – I had my focus on the final exams and after they were over, I most certainly lost it. I haven’t found it yet, though.

  37. MikeyC (1 comments.) says:

    I was planning to register zygote.ca because I liked the logo I came up with. It was available… I waited too long and it got registered by someone else. I started scrambling for a second choice and came up with zeit.ca because the “z” in the logo still works. In retrospect, I’m glad I was forced to register zeit.ca instead. Shorter domain name.

  38. Prashant (2 comments.) says:

    I went plain old eponymous.

  39. Mark J (2 comments.) says:

    My blog is called “Tempus Fugit” which is Latin for “time is fleeting” or “time is running out.” I studied Latin for 7 years, and I wanted to use a Latin phrase that was at least reasonably known to people, and one that had something about the passage of time. All the good “tempusfugit” domains were taken, so I settled on the abbreviated “txfx.net” which I like, because it is short, and almost “edgy” with the double Xs.

    Master Of The Obvious… It just sort of poked me in the head. No real purpose, but it helps distinguish my site on Google.

  43. Jesus Vargas (4 comments.) says:

    My domain name, as well as the blog name, is ElTintero, that means the inkwell. A friend pointed it out, I just loved it because I am very classic, oldie, conservative, and an inkwell invokes those adjectives.

  44. Poonam (10 comments.) says:

    Neeraj and my weblog’s title is “Our Journey Begins…Together”.. as the website is start of our journey in life together…

  45. Christine (3 comments.) says:

    My original site was blahblahblog.com – but it was hard to say out loud. After attending SXSW and having to say it hundreds of times, I felt the need for a change. I was in Starbucks, amused that they had a cookie named “Big Pink Cookie” and … registered the URL that afternoon. It makes me laugh, it’s easy to spell, and it is more fun to say than blahblahblog. (Plus at our wedding, we had Big Pink Cookies (from Starbucks) for the groom’s cake!)

    Mine comes from an Einstein quotation:

    “The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking… the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker.”

    I liked the idea of exploring what I could have been, and as I was at the time a Project Manager, I put the two together.

  49. Jeremy (2 comments.) says:

    Alot of people call me “jezz”, so JezzJournal. ;) Works out nicely.

  50. Sameer (7 comments.) says:

    My friends have always remarked that I come across as a very optimistic person. And I am! So I wanted my blog to reflect it. Moreover, being an Indian, I wanted to perpetuate the western myth of India being a mystical place. So I thought about it and came up with ‘The Opti Mystic’… which I loosely translate as the all-seeing mystic! :-P

  51. Mike Stenhouse (1 comments.) says:

    I was really into information graphics for a while and as a result I ended up wandering off with an airplane emergency card… Late one night while looking for some design inspiration I noticed that it had Do Not Remove written in smallprint in one corner. Ooops. That was it, though: donotremove.

  52. Yvonne Adams (1 comments.) says:

    We Are Not Sheep
    I suppose I recognized my tendency to rant about issues I care about. It really ticks me off when people believe we should all act and think alike. I don’t really care if someone disagrees with me, as long as they ‘ve actually thought about the reasoning behind their beliefs and aren’t just reciting what they’ve been told to think.

  53. Armin (1 comments.) says:

    The package my webhoster offers includes 5 domains. For some reason that has been lost in the mists of time I registered ministryofpropaganda.co.uk. At some point I decided to move my blog away from my personal website/domain. Guess where it ended up?

  54. waylman (1 comments.) says:

    I was not all the original. I found mine in the available domain name of the week, a list that has been maintained and updated for five years by Grant Hutchinson. There was another one on the list that I liked better, but it was already taken so I settled on achinghead.com. That was about the time I discovered that my migrains were the result of caffiene, which I have since stoped all comsunmtion of. I suppose that was a contributing factor although I looked at it more as a pun on life in general. My navigation initialy played on that pun ( for example the blog was called throb – each entry being a throb in the headach of life and the archives were called migraine), but it was so confusing to anyone but myself that I have since dropped it.

  55. Gibarian (3 comments.) says:

    When my kid brother spent a year in Scotland, he was once asked where he was from, and when he said it (Austria), the person responded by saying: “Ah, Storm Grass” , actually meaning a then rather successful soccer team called Sturm Graz (Sturm being a simple name and Graz a twon in Austria). Being linguistically interested (and ironically not very interested in soccer), I loved the story and after I noticed that Stormgrass doesn’t mean anything, I made it the name of my blog. And now it means “Best Blog in the World”. No, just kidding. It still doesn’t mean thing.

  59. Adrian (1 comments.) says:

    Well, out of the 3 blogs I run, the first blog had a really quite bland name of “Adrian’s Blog”. I changed it when I wanted to make more me, and more personal, and since I tend to be a bit of a facts/data curator personality type, I renamed it to “Adrian’s Curatorship”. One of my other blogs, which is the same thing but with really long posts was simply named “Articles from Adrian’s Curatorship”. My most recent blog, which right now is a bit of a side project is called “Linux Log”. Several years ago, I ran a Linux News Website, but closed it down around the dot com bubble burst because I couldn’t make money at it anymore, and back then I called it “Linux News Online”. I wanted to start it back up, but thought that Linux News Online was too generic and long, and since the new site was going to be in a link blog format, I decided to shorten it up to Linux Log, and there you have it.

  63. Kelson (20 comments.) says:

    It started out as a fill-in name until I could think of something better: Ramblings. And since it was intended for both me and my then-fiancée, and our names both start with K, I put together a K² logo for it. After a while I started seeing how common the word “Ramblings” was in other people’s blog titles, but by then I couldn’t quite bring myself to change it, so I combined the logo and the original title to make K-Squared Ramblings the official title.

  64. Vidar (1 comments.) says:

    I don’t like the word “blog” or any of its derivatives, but anyway…

    I named mine after an album I was listening to at the moment… Well actually I changed it just a little and voila!
    And the reason I dont have a domain is because I cant afford one.

  65. Anton (1 comments.) says:

    Well, I had the domain name, lr2.com, and spent an hour thinking of names that
    would fit. Finally settled for Link Right 2.

  66. Estara (1 comments.) says:

    I picked the domain because most domain combinations with the word “book” in them were taken. And it quite describes me.

    I picked the Blog name as a reference to the OST-CD name of my very very favourite anime show, Fruits Basket. That one’s called Memory for You, so of course it became Memory for me.

    I already made a fansite with the name Memory for you anway ^^. http://furuba.bookish.net

  67. ACJ (1 comments.) says:

    ACJ are the initials of my given names. The title of my weblog is ACJ’s Weblog, which is pretty self-explanatory. There’s a bit more to the story though: I wrote about it when I acquired my current domain.

  68. Steph aka bunnywabbit_ (4 comments.) says:

    Not very original: my site already existed by the same name before I started the blog. At first it was just the “Weblog”, and then, little by little, the name used to refer to the site as a whole (Climb to the Stars) began to be used to refer to it as a weblog.

  71. Charles (1 comments.) says:

    I’ve been told by family and friends alike that I’m “too serious” and that I “think too much” since I was a teenager. In the late 80s, Paul Simon released the album “Hearts and Bones” that contained two different songs sharing the same title, “Maybe I Think Too Much” and I identified with them immediately.

    When I first began blogging, I did so under my real name, but a private meeting with my boss and the president of my company over my blog’s content led me to register a new domain under a proxy, and I had to think of a catchy name both for the URI and the title.

    It was a no-brainer, actually.

  72. Sadish (1 comments.) says:

    I always want myself to be known as one ‘simple’ guy.
    I tried various combination with the word Simple and ‘SimpleInside’ came in as something easy to tell others and easy to remember.
    so thats how it was born.

  73. David House (1 comments.) says:

    ‘Mouse’ is one of my many, many nicknames (rhymes with my surname). I added X, because all good web technologies begin with X. It doesn’t really stand for anything, although for fun afterward, I did come up with a possible expanded version: eXtensible Markup-Orientated User Specification Engine. And no, that’s not meant to make sense.

    I think it came from my piano teacher when I heard her say “let me just think out loud for a moment”. I loved that phrase. You’re thinking…but people know what you’re thinking…amazing!

  75. Ria (1 comments.) says:

    My first blog was named “Think Pink” because I was into the color pink at the time. Then I felt that I wanted a more neutral name that didn’t refer to anything in particular. I spent an hour going through all sorts of word combinations and seeing if they were available and I ended up with my current one.

  76. Jacks (1 comments.) says:

    I had a whole list of criteria but it boiled down to a couple of things…

    I wanted an 8 letter or less .com
    I wanted it to be semimemorable… not something like jsx94as.com.
    I wanted it to be directly related to me.

    I came up with http://www.jetshack.com.
    JetShack is an anagram for The Jacks

    all i knew is that i wanted it to have something to do with that really tired term, “meme.” while staring at the screen (specifically, the page where blogger asks you to name your blog), the name bubbled up from the subconscious. i put it in before i had a chance to think about it. stuck with it now.

    I thought about my blog name for a while and I couldn’t come up with anything. At the same time, I was listening to Mozart and he is one of my favorite classical musician. So I named my blog Amedeus instead of Amadeus which is the correct one. I should have spent more time thinking of creative ones but I still think it’s a neat name.

  82. The Eskimo (1 comments.) says:

    I met my boyfriend online, and he is canadian. I am american. One day I was making fun of him, calling him an eskimo. And since I want to move to canada myself, he said I should be a eskimo too. So I started calling myself Fellow Eskimo. When I went to look for a new website, I wanted to keep it mostly anonymous because my old website was just my name. I was searching and searching until one night I looked at my nick on IRC…the eskimo. So I registered and became the Fellow Eskimo.

  83. Rihyann says:

    Lost Rivers 2 was a much more fitting name.

  86. tom g (1 comments.) says:

    I named my blog after the basic idea of it, for help to choose “a new tattoo”. Even though it covers more than that it was the reason I chose the URL. Plus it was available and short. It also has all natural words. I have “new” instead of “nu” eg.
    Great topic! It should give some guidance on how to choose the right domain name for your website.

  87. manga (24 comments.) says:

    My blog has two faces.

    The dead version was called Otoboku.se since I suck at names and couldn´t come up with anything that would sound good and at the same time work for what I wrote about.

    This version of the blog crashed because somehow the charset settings changed so all my posts went yuck with inserted characters whenever I had used a “´” which I did and still use a lot.

    The current name: The Fool came upon me as Otoboku.se crashed down so I started over from scratch, I was playing Persona 3 and the main character had the arcana the fool with unlimited possibilities. Thus the new title with undertitle became: The Fool – Unlimited Possibilities to Screw up

    As part reminder to always check what you are doing to your blog and part as humour. I didn´t want to let it get me down.

  88. Voyagerfan5761 (1 comments.) says:

    I named my blog way back when I started on MSN Spaces in 2006. That was two platforms and nearly four years ago. Since I initially just posted snippets about my various technological woes, I named my Space “Technobabbles”.

    Then I moved to Blogger, started blogging more, and expanded the name: “Technobabbles – Voyagerfan5761′s Blog”.

    A few months ago, I finally got fed up with Blogger’s limited feature set and moved to WordPress. I registered the domain name technobabbl.es and also re-shortened my blog’s name to match; it is now again called simply “Technobabbles”.

    Despite the fact that I now blog a lot of personal and non-tech stuff, I still like the name. When I talk to my friends and family, the comment I get most often is that I should stop speaking technobabble. So I guess the name is apt.
